How do you get your dogs to look at you with such adoration and loyalty? Is it treats? My mom’s cats look at me with indifference and lowkey contempt.
You’ve just identified the primary difference between cats and dogs.
If it helps, I can probably help with the cat equivalent. Care for them more like you would a dog. Play with them, give them treats, challenge their minds, and always give them attention and love. While my kitties have been unusually affectionate all of their lives, I’m sure part of it was how I raised them.
