1. Lightly touching her forehead against you

1. 用前额轻轻触碰你
This feline act of affection is delivered only to the A-listers in a cat's life. Your cat will face you, lower her head and lean forward so that the top of her head touches your forehead, face or other body part. This loving touch can often release feel-good hormones called endorphins in your cat and you.
2. Cheek rubbing you
2. 用脸颊磨蹭你
Think of your cat as a feline graffiti artist. To make her turf really feel like home, she will rub her cheeks against the corners of furniture and, possibly, your legs or hands when you pet her. This act secretes oils from her facial glands. It's her way of claiming you as her own. Just be grateful that she does so by cheek rubbing, not spraying.
把你家猫猫想成一位涂鸦大师,为了让它的皮毛真正感觉到家的味道,它会用自己的脸颊擦拭家具的角落,或当你爱抚它的时候磨蹭你的腿或手。这个动作会让它的 面部腺体分泌油脂,它在用自己特有的方式在表达:主人你是我的。你该感到开心,毕竟它的方式只是脸颊磨蹭而不是喷射或分泌点别的东西。
3. Twitching the tip of her tail
3. 抽动尾巴尖
The feline tail acts like a mood barometer. The tail puffs out when your cat is frightened or agitated. Conversely, your cat expresses love to you when she approaches you with her tail hoisted lazily up in the air and the very tip twitches. In cat speak, she is saying, "You rock my world!"
4. Holding eye contact and sharing a soft blink
4. 保持眼神交流,眼睛温柔的眨巴眨巴
Don't expect a cat to maintain a steady eye-to-eye stare with a new houseguest. Cats save eye contact for people they know and trust, like you. The bond is accented when she blinks softly at you. This is the equivalent of a kitty kiss. Respond by softly blinking back.
5. Turning on the purr power
5. 发出呜呜呜的声音
This steady, rhythmic sound emitted when your cat inhales and exhales is often associated with contentment. But cats also purr when they need to self-calm or while nursing a litter; however, your cat saves the special full-bodied rumble as a smile directed to you. It is her way of saying, "I love you."

6. Sitting on you or beside you

6. 趴在你身上或身边
Cats crave warm places to nap and sleep, but when they bypass a comfy cat bed or your bedroom pillow to perch on your lap, you should feel honored. Your cat has sized up her options and is conveying that she prefers being with you rather than being by herself in her cat bed.
7. Kneading her paws on your lap
7. 坐在你的膝上揉捏自己的爪子
If you need a sign it is time to trim your cat's nails, nothing is clearer than when she perches on your lap, purrs and starts kneading your thighs with her front paws. But this is also a sign of affection. Experts say that this action beckons your adult cat back to a safe, welcoming memory when she was nuzzling her mother for milk as a newborn kitten.
8. Licking your hair and earlobes
8. 舔你的头发或耳垂
OK, neither of these actions may rate on your top 10 list of affection preferences, but your cat is regarding you as another cat - albeit a big one - in her inner circle. Only special "cats" are deemed worthy of these special grooming sessions. In a multicat household, mutual grooming is a sign of trust and friendship.
9. Bringing you dead mice, birds and other so-called gifts
9. 带给你它们认为的好礼物:死老鼠、鸟或者其他
Evolution and domestication have not stripped your cat of her inner hunter. After a successful hunt, she may deposit a mouse head or lizard tail in a place she knows you will visit - like your pillow. Yuck? Yes, but your cat is sharing her prey prize with you, a true sign of trusted friendship.
10. Emitting a high-pitched trill
10. 发出高声调的颤音
Cats are capable of more than a dozen vocalizations, ranging from the hiss to the meow. Listen carefully for the high-pitched trill or chirp. These sounds convey affection and attention - not a feline demand for second helpings in her food bowl. Trill back, watch her reaction and enjoy a true cat chat.
