Cats are aloof, cold, uncaring and fiercely independent – these words have been used many times to describe cats, but anyone that has a cat in their family knows that these words are not true.

Yes our kitties can sometimes be grumpy and distant, and will often shy away from being petted or receiving a hug, but in reality everybody has their off days and that includes cats!

So to dispel all myths that portray our adorable kitties in this way, Brightside have put together this wonderful collection of pictures showing that our cats are very much capable of love and appreciate being part of a warm and loving family.

1. “My cat figured out that the alarm sound means that I have to wake up, so she snuggles on my chest right after it goes off.”


2. In good hands


3. Even this pretty lady’s tail aligns perfectly with the cushion.


4. “She saw me packing my army kit this morning. Every time she finds out that I’ll be leaving for a few weeks, this is how she sits with me until I leave.”


5. “I work as a geologist in remote areas. I was leaving my camp this morning when I heard meowing. This little guy followed me, climbed up me, and promptly fell asleep. I think I’ve been chosen.”


6. When you’ve found that perfect spot on the couch:


7. Everybody’s home!


8. “She fell asleep with her favorite toy. My heart just exploded.”


9. The face of happiness


10. This kitten looks like it feels safe now after going through some hard times.


11. “I picked her up yesterday — we’re instant best friends!”


12. “No one would adopt him because he’s got a bad eye. Good! He’s with me now. And his eyes show that he really appreciates it.”


13. How long do you think you’d be able to resist before holding this kitty in your arms?


14. Mama Pebbles and her child, Primrose


15. There’s no denying that this cat loves its owner. And the best part is that it makes sure he knows it!


16. “20 years old and she still knows she’s the queen!”


17. “We let him come inside during Hurricane Harvey and he hasn’t left…”


18. “I never thought this little fella would change my life.”


19. “My little girl enjoying some belly rubs”


20. He’s obsessed with his daddy…


21. “I adopted my fur baby Coraline about a year ago. She’s always showing those dreamy eyes of hers. I couldn’t imagine not having her around.”


22. “My sweet boy. He’s been my little buddy for 15 years now.”


23. When you’re so comfy that you don’t want to move at all:


24. They only have eyes for her.
