    Yes, this is a way kitties show affection. My aunt’s kitty would sleep on top of my aunt’s pillow at night with just her little kitty paws touching my aunt’s head. When my aunt fell ill and was bedridden the kitty never left the pillow until my aunt was asleep and then the kitty ate and drank just a little, used her “box”, and returned to the position on the pillow. When my aunt passed away, the kitty crept off the pillow without anyone speaking to or touching her. I still cry when I tell others about that wonderful cat. And yes, I loved today’s script and LOL. Thanks guys!

    What about when they try to sit on your face?

    Oh I don’t know MayKitten. I have known dogs that are super affectionate that will show it many ways without the dry leg hump. A little dog that curled at my grandmothers feet because her feet were cold and he warmed her feet. A little dog that somehow knew exactly where my mom or dad were hurting and she would curl up and lay right on the spot that hurt and just look at them and they got to feeling better. A little dog that would lay beside me and kiss me when i was sick or very upset and just love me. Dogs will go above and beyond to show love and affection for the human that cares for them. All the cats I have know would just as soon scratch us as look at us. Unless you count my last cat. But then he thought he was a full sized panther with the mentality of a dog.

    At one job I had, we had a Siamese cat who would meet me at the door every morning when I opened up. He would climb aboard and ride around on my shoulders while I Made the morning coffee. He wouldn’t dismount until I sat down to enjoy my coffee. This was fine when temperatures were cool enough to require a jacket, but in summer, when I was wearing only a t-shirt, the claws made things interesting, to say the least.

    I’ve heard that cats will sleep just about anywhere, but this is a new one for me.

    I got a Manx cat several years ago. She took to my roommate — I was number 2. Same with one of her kittens that we kept. When he died, she and her son wouldn’t come out of his room for a couple months except to eat. Now, both of them jump up on my bed at night and say good night and purr away. That is so touching.

    No. It is love. Just not the most pleasant kind of love, but it is nevertheless love.

    … Dogs think that leg humping is a sign of love.

    No, not quite.

    A dog humping your leg is trying to show you that you are NOT the higher ranking pack mate. Both genders do this, and if they could get to your head or shoulder, that’s where they would hump.
