How do I make my cat like cuddles more Posted on September 8, 2022 by Anonymous I'm depressed he needs to cuddle with me more.
>grown men talking about and discussing cuddling
dogs are stinky
Letting cats come to you first is the biggest tip I have in this regard. Helped my parents raise a bunch of cats when I was a kid but none of them took a shine to me until I didn't give a fuck and just toyed with them and let them come around on their own terms. It sounds dumb but you literally have to play hard to get and let them come to you. If you give them food or swing a toy around you'll get a friend within a few weeks.
The easy mistake people always make is not giving them agency and picking them up whenever you feel like it. You can get away with this when they're already familiar but early on they'll fucking hate you for it
You just know you're dealing with a deranged dogfucker when they can't stop talking about their dog's "wonderful scent"
its fucking weird. none of the dogs or cats ive owned have ever had an odor unless you literally shove your face into their fur
>not huffing your pets
cat huffing is based and redpilled.
You know someone is eating turds out of the litterbox when they say their house doesn’t stink
The dogs are tbh
my dog avoids the litterbox
maybe they’re saving them for you
Yeah, usually I use it as a throwaway insult, but this guy's animals legitimately need a welfare check.
>tfw adopted cat
>tfw can stay home alone for a weekend without no problems
>tfw shits out
>tfw never goes out beyond backyard
Best pet I ever had. sometimes wants attention but for the most part it does its own thing
>if you love something set it free, if it returns it is yours, if it doesn't it never was.
Cats are basically little wild animals. They are way off the compass of behaviour traits to dogs too.
So if your little friend is not cuddling, pushing them can only set you back further.
Not being a sperg who picks their cat up every five minutes, not being a sperg around them, by just treating them like a little animal, you will almost guarantee having a cat follow you around, hugging your ankles, napping beside you while you do things etc.
My current cat is around 22 years old, she hates being picked up, has never set foot on my bed, but is on me like superglue when I am home. She loves to show affection on her own terms, her way of being my friend is to keep me company while I use my computer, or work on things in my garage and waits for me like a little dog at 6pm when I get home from work.
I know a guy who abuses his cat for cuddling too much
>had this super friendly kitten that loved to jump up in your lap and cuddle and lick you all over
>forced to move and had to give it to a new home
acclimate them to handling as a kitten so they don't fear it or even enjoy it. Cats tend to get more interested in cuddling when they get older but its important to build that foundation. I have always been able to pick my cat up and hold him like a baby and he loves it.
There is a personality factor too, he had a brother from the same litter and he tolerated, but did not enjoy, being picked up and didn't like to lay on people as much.
Maybe he doesn't like your cigarette smoke..
It sounds like YOU need (actually want) HIM to cuddle YOU more.
Some cats just don't like to be picked up. Cuddle with him on his level. Get to where he is and get comfy like him.
Cats will tell you when it's time for cuddle
You can't force it
Feed the cat while you do it, especially if it's with little bits of meat. Cats become WAY more chill around you when they associate you with food.
Also in my case I have multiple cats and one is a fat retard who bullies the crap out of this small cat I have who is a runt since her mother died when she was only a few days old and she never got her mother's milk much and since I love to treat the big one like teddy bear he avoids me like the plague so the little one follows me around cuz she knows he won't be there and I give her food.
I was late to work yesterday because I was having a cuddle session in bed with my cat and didn't want to get up
>tfw have a friendly cat that loves cuddling
I love you Booger you're the best cat I ever met
i too love cuddling on shoe mats and cold tiles
it really is quite exquisite yes
My little moronman loves a cuddle too. He comes and meows at me until I pick him up qnd let him sit on my lap while I'm playing vidya
imagine the smell
What the FUCK are you doing?
Just hanging out with mr kitty bro
Awwww what a sweet baby!!!!! So adorable.
Cool cat and gundam collection anon.
The post that made the heckin doggorino funko pop reddit tourists seethe.
Just leave if we're fucking your psyche up that hard. Think happy orange arrows.
>think happy orange arrows
what are you talking about?
>The redditor is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a newgay, moron, election tourist, chud, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a redditor and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.”
Absolutely ass blasted looool
LMAO mindbroken beyond belief
Nice. Looks and sounds just like my moronman.
>That fucking Mario hat
Did every Nintendo power kid have one?
>living area uncomfortably cool
You raise a good point here. What's the temp like in your place OP? If it's even slightly too warm for kitty then he won't wanna snuggle. My cat has slept on me his entire life except for when it gets hot in the house. That instantly compels him to find and splay out on the coolest surface he can, usually the floor. Alternatively, when it's cool in the house he's on me like a magnet.
That's why everyone in Russia has a cat I realize. They must be so much friendlier given how cold it gets.
it is because russians are somewhat lazy and like things where they have no responsibility. most cats in russia are outdoor cats. russia also has "pet dogs", and in sochi they mistook them for strays and killed them, but they were just the local pets. they were outdoor dogs.
We have cats in colder countries like Russia to catch and deter mice from migrating into homes. Around this time of the year animals like fieldmice look for a warm, dry place to spend the winter.
Before pesticides and modern windows and doors, keeping them out was almost impossible. So a good mouse hunter cat could be the difference between life and death, if mice get into winter stores, they defecate and taint the stores, their waste will produce mould and make the food inedible. It would be very much in our interest to keep cats happy and homebound if they showed a talent at catching mice!
Dog guys are right with one huge fucking caveat. They love to play and cuddle and rough house, but it's only enjoyable with a dog that's been bathed within like the past 6 hours.
if you choose a dog with the right coat (eg sighthounds, most short hair terriers)
theyre generally cleaner than cats
of course dogs also reflect the cleanliness of their owners a lot more so makes sense that a stinky dirty cat person will have a stinky dirty dog
Your dog stinks mate. Just because you're used to the full blast reek while you get mounted doesn't mean it doesn't stink always.
my dog smells better than your litter box and as a bonus i dont fantasize about fucking him like you apparently do
Nah. The litterbox gets cleaned every day. I doubt your furry cat turd eating semen donor does.
Your house stinks dude. Cope.
Not him but i've been living with someone with cats and even with daily "cleanings" short of scrubbing them out with bleach litterboxes stink 24/7 and so does the room they're kept in. Dogs smell pretty good and I instantly think less of anyone that doesn't like the scent. Then again if my dog was a shit roller/shit eater I'd send them bacl.
My litterbox is is that back of the unifinished half of my basement, about 40 feet from the door to the finished portion. Must suck being poor.
I use litter than makes it so you can't smell it without your face next to it, but still. Must suck.
You're just noseblind to it. Shit reeks. I've heard your story many times from many people but I can always smell it. The cats themselves, up close, smell pretty good, but if you do not keep litterboxes outside you are a worse savage than those "people" that don't use two bags to pick up poop.
Yes dogs smell pretty. Fucking deal with it homo.
If your dog isn't a deformed and neglected cotton ball that likes to and is allowed to roll in gross shit they smell great. The best smells are in and around their ears (if pointy) and their feet. But if your dog is deformed with giant floppy ears then their ears stink, and if it has droopy shit and wrinkles their face and possibly whole body will stink. But that's as relevant as saying fat chicks reek, when healthy chicks smell divine.
>You're just noseblind to it
Oh the ironing.
I keep all my inanimate objects clean. Thankfully, it's pretty easy because they don't go outside and roll on shit and mud and then roll around the carpet.
>oh the ironing
When I first got my dog the first thing I noticed was how good they smelled. When I have to leave and come back after not smelling them the first thing I notice is how good they smell.
Meanwhile you need an outdoor litterbox enclosure ("catio") with pellet litter or else the cat makes your home smell of shit and tracks shit contaminated gravel around.
In Russia an outdoor cat that goes too far if not to a nearby home is a dead cat. The Russians are lucky then, in the rest of the world outdoor cats that can get over the fence become useless and annoying very fast. Sometimes they will drive mice out of some irrelevant corner of the alley and into places that are relevant. The old "cat lady moved in and now we have mice for some reason" effect.
Cats survive somehow in the wild. Like in -20 celsius I have seen a momma cat leading a line of fat kittens down the road. Their numbers explode in the summer, I think this selects for the kind of cat with the health and common sense to survive.
There is an old folk song about easing a new mouser into a routine without making the rodents flee into your farmhouse. The only solution is for the farmer to not kick the cat when she pisses on his boots, he bites his lip and leave his boots on the doorstep.
If you don't lather your first story with polyurethane and spend thousands of dollars on rat traps, a good cat is still the best anti-rodent protection tbh
>cats somehow survive in the wild
They subsist off the overpopulated, fat, and docile vermin that surrounds us, not enough to get rid of it entirely because then they would die. They are the descendants of the weak and retarded wild cats that lived that life, after all. Also compare dog and wolf intelligence to understand that domestication is always this - wolves can solve basic puzzles that dogs get angry and confused over.
>If you don't lather your first story with polyurethane and spend thousands of dollars on rat traps, a good cat is still the best anti-rodent protection tbh
It's literally as simple as not having holes in your house, keeping food off the ground, and leaving rat poison out just in case. The only tomcats I've ever had were those black tomcat brand bait boxes with extra peanut butter inside to make them more appetizing. I recently switched over to rolling log traps with the buckets dog into the ground. Never seen a rodent that wasn't dead.
Dogs smell heavenly and I think less of anyone that disagrees.
i agree. i have a husky and she smells AMAZING. anyone who thinks she stinks has something wrong with their nose.

With all due respect anon, I don't think you know winter in Russia. Life "smells" the warm air. It's not like North America, we have minus 10 to positive 28 in a normal year on average for the respective two seasons.
Any number of things could fail at any given moment, a big hairy cat can solve all of your problems. They are nice and homely and cute too.
Winter in russia, winter in north dakota, is same thing. flex seal solve all problem for 3 easy payments of 9.99 plus shipping also handling.
Dogs smell like shit tbh. they're considered dirty animals objectively
Dogs smell great and are only considered dirty by uneducated third worlders who are not aware that they are communal groomers and just leave them outside alone rather than take care of their pets. I am not interested in a thirdie tier take on dogs especially coming from someone that keeps a dirt toilet inside their home. All you have to do is pick up your yard and brush them 1-2 times a day. Just like you just need to keep the litter outdoors. It is not hard.
Wauf has like a dozen husky owners. They all poster pics just not when shitposting for obvious reasons.
anyone who considers dogs or cats dirty is just a monke with no planning or problem solving skills. if you have anything making a mess other than hair and any scent other than the stale airline air smell of a cat or the floral/woody/cornchip dog smell and your cookiny i view you as less than human. and maybe, if deformed to the point of reeking naturally, i might view you as a dirty moron for adopting that filthy wrinkled cotton ball that cant take a shit without it sticking to them. really long haired cats are the worst, followed by mastiffs. why would you want either indoors? ew. there are clean examples of each species and they are the majority!
>Wauf has like a dozen husky owners.
Even if one has a certain dog doesnt mean someone else has one
Cats are so disgusting and destructive, most landlord’s pet policy only allow dogs and prohibit cats.
You're house stink and so do you. Cope.
Seething catcuck take this L. Your fucking nose hairs are burnt from smelling concentrated amonia cat piss everyday
all he has to do is put the toilet outside lol. cats are fine pets once you do that. remember, dogs CAN use a litterbox but why the fuck would you?
>muh magic litter no smell no mess
No such thing stinky
You're couch, bed, and enite house literally smells like a shit covered yeast infection. Cope, dog fucker.
Not joking. Like, I'll concede a dirty litter box is worse than a clean dog, but a clean dog still stinks up the whole house.
Take a bag of Fritos, rub it on a fat guys sweaty pits, dribble a little piss, shit and rain water in and leave it on a hot dashboard for a week.
That's what your house smells like, especially the den.
If you find anything offensive about the way a non-mutated, well cared for dog smells I have serious doubts about your sanity and humanity. You might have some genetic defect regarding olfactory sensitivity, or some form of autism where any strong stimulus breaks your inferior spergy mind. I'll admit golden retrievers, rough collies, etc stink like absolute shit if you don't bathe them daily but that's because their coats are literal fucking garbage magnets that tangle if you look at them wrong or if they get slightly moist, and labs reek because they have more oil in their fur than a duck, like they're the greasy neckbeard of dogs. A real dog (pic related) is odorless from a distance and smells good up close.
its genetic. you can't argue with either side because it's an instinct.
a large amount of whites, north africans, northern native americans, and many far east/north east asians either like or don't notice the smell of dog but it's naturally repulsive to everyone else because wolves are man's predators (especially in childhood) instead of a survival asset. to that half of humanity smelling a dog evokes the same reaction as smelling puma piss on a hiking trail. it's revulsion and disgust tinted with primal fear. it's a "this is a bad place get away" reaction. they are like mice who just smelled a housecat. you can tell which ethnicities have more dog lover genes than the opposite by how their cultures treat dogs, of course, they have no choice. it's a natural tendency that they can not defeat by being conscious of it any more than you could consciously convince yourself that sugar is disgusting.
>two kinds of people:
>frito feet! it smells so calming, like puppies (ancestors used dogs for survival)
>THIS DISGUSTING MUTANT MUTT STINKS LIKE LITERAL SHIT (ancestors did not benefit from dogs in any way, retains lower primate fear of predators)
i suppose this also applies to cat urine because toxo alone doesn't explain how some people are naturally blind to it and some people are repulsed by very low concentrations, and cat lovers are present on both sides of that debate and the ones that hate the smell just put them outside so they don't piss in the house. if cats were a survival asset to some people, losing a gene that coded for higher sensitivity and a negative reaction to some chemical in cat urine would improve their genetic fitness and encourage them to keep cats at home to ward off mice, and arguing with someone who does not think the litterbox is that bad is like trying to convince someone that a chocolate bar is disgusting.
Downplaying the toxic fumes from cat waste that poison the air of your home is a serious sign of brain damage, catcuck.
>Dogs smell pretty
No one cares about your girlfriend's scent, dude.
get rid of the cat and get a jack russell terrier
they cuddly af
Different cats have different personality types. Some like cuddling, some not.
If you want an animal that loves physical contact you should've gotten an animal that loves physical contact, like a labrodor.
Stupid dogfags see
>oh too bad you got an anti cuddle cat
>luck of the draw
>enjoy sifting for stinky poops inside your home for the next 2 decades until you can roll again!
>enjoy sifting for stinky poops inside your home for the next 2 decades until you can roll again!
That's the part where catfags kick their pest out of the house and claim that they're doing it a favor. Then the cat gets gored by strays or flattened by a car and they roll again.
My husky loves cuddles and hugs. Sucks to suck.
Should have started with them as a kitten
It's his cat's personality. I've seen from the same litter, one cat that was a living plushie always looking for cuddles with anyone while its sister disliked them.
Does you cat seek to be petted by you but refuses to be cradled in your arms or stay on your lap, or completely ignores you ?
Not the poster, but my cat is that way. Demands love but stays an arm ways from laps or anything. You must come to her on the floor or a chair she is in to give her affection.
>wants your attention and to be pet
>always stays just out of range
Why are so many cats like this? Fucking retards.
They want affection but don't want to be grabbed like ragdolls, lifted from the ground and held between arms.
Cats enjoy having space for emergency situations. They just like attention like any other pet, hence the
>pet too much
>attacks you from overpetting/surrounding him
It sounds dumb but it's true and real broscience.
This is why anyone that hates cats is instantly identifiable as a ham handed spergazoid.
If you dislike cats and tolerate them, that's fine. The other extreme is the schizos on here that can't stop talking about how much they hate cats like they're rocking in a straight jacket mumbling it over and over again.
>If you dislike cats and tolerate them, that's fine
Why would I tolerate the shit pests that stink up my woodshed and wake me up at night with their squeals?
because that's not necessarily a cat thing, that's just what cats turn into when there are no responsible, intelligent humans to reign them in. dogs can be just as bad if too many retards "keep" them. if people raised their kids like they raised their cats you would have roving bands of feral hominids with spears killing people for no clear reason.
Sure but I don't have a dog problem in my garden, I have a cat problem. Where I live dogs are normally kept confined while cats are allowed to roam freely, becoming a nuisance for those who want to be pet-free.
Rationally that is not cats, not "cats", and there is nothing wrong with the cats that are well confined.
You come across as one of those macaques that threw puppies off balconies because a much larger stray dog heemed some pest primates for fucking around near its favorite humans stuff.
>DOG BAD DOG BAD OOOOK
>didn't we have it coming
>wasn't it that big dog down there? why are we killing puppies way up here?
>DONT QUESTION ONLY OOK
>Rationally that is not cats
It's cats. I have a cat problem in my garden.
>there is nothing wrong with the cats that are well confined
Obviously not, I don't care about those.
Asking me to tolerate the cats that invade my private space is absurd and extremely entitled though.
>he can't take the litter out every day
>he can't swap out litter every month
Sounds like a you problem.
They're not my cats. It's a problem that I never signed up for to begin with and my shitty neighbors forced on me.
Yeah you just need to find some good poison to lay around the area I guess. Go to a local farm seed and feed (sneed lol) supplier and ask for advice.
Don't poison cat
Maybe a sprinkler if it comes into your garden. If you have a dog the dog will keep it at bay
You do realize that 90% of people in here larp? for example there's a huskyfag who posts here 24/7 who doesn't own one and claims to be a different person every other thread. stop falling for shitty bait
To be fair, outdoor cats are massive morons and provide nothing. Basically oversized rats with cute faces. You could say the same about dogs too honestly.
My cat follows me around and will make a particular meow when she wants cuddles, and she'll jump into my lap when I'm sitting - but she doesn't like being held like a baby. I sincerely believe that one of the reasons my cats are always so affectionate is that if I'm holding them and they start to struggle (visibly want to get away) I just let them go. They know that's it's safe to come have cuddles because they won't be manhandled and restrained.
Buy a dog or a Havana rabbit.
Alternately make your living area uncomfortably cool and leave yourself as his only option for warmth.
My shiba is not that big on hugs either.
Think about what a hug looks like from the dog or cat's perspective. Its uncomfortable for them.
Shibas are notoriously uncuddly dogs.
>make your living area uncomfortably cool
Room temperature for people is just on the other side of comfortable for cats. They're wild ancestors were desert animals, and they love the heat. Its why even on a hot ass day you'll see a cat laying in the sun happy as a pig in shit.
Give them a treat after cuddling?
