You love your cat — that's a given. And these are the reasons why.

1. That purr

It means "you're my person" in cat-speak, right?

2. When they rub their heads on you

Let's just accept that you'll never pet them quite right. It's better just to let them take care of it.

3. When they tap for your attention

When they want your attention, they want it now. And they know we can't ignore that.

4. When they cheat for your attention

Yes, it's annoying. But it's so nice to be needed.

5. When they talk

You have no idea what he's saying, but it must be important, and you love that he's taking the time to tell you about it. Just keep saying, "Oh yeah? I know!"

6. The funny faces

Little Miss Priss would be mortified if she knew the faces she made when she sleeps. You find it hilarious... and a bit endearing.

7. When something catches their eye

They don't miss a thing. It's really very impressive.

8. The falls

It doesn't happen very often but when you catch it — gold! The only thing that's more funny is the embarrassed look they get once they're right-side-up again.

9. The hunt

What's not to love about that cute little wiggly butt in the air?

10. The pounce

The pounce is always the follow-up move to the butt wiggle. You'll do just about anything to make it happen.

11. When they love your little ones

Nothing else in the world is that adorable.

12. Waking up to that face

There's no such thing as the wrong side of the bed when you wake up to something so precious.

13. Their irrational fears

Spiders? No problem. Mice? On it. Oranges? Forghedaboudit.

14. Their friendships

Few things are as heartwarming as seeing all your furry friends cuddled up for a nap.

15. When they get their sniff on

Image: Giphy

"Where have you been? What were you doing?" It's nice to know someone thinks about you when you're gone.

16. When they're sleepy

Image: Giphy

The only thing cuter than a kitten is a very tired kitten.

17. The anger

Image: Giphy

You know it won't last, so it's totally OK to laugh at his angry little expression. It's really more cute than mean, isn't it?

18. The hugs

Nothing better. Nothing.
