1. Give Her Lap Cuddles
Cats love lap cuddles and enjoy them a lot. Any activity that makes them the center of all attention is sure to get her tinkling with joy. Keeping them gently on your lap and running the fingers through her coat also helps you gain her trust, which is very important in forming a great bond.

Treats fill her with joy and make her feel special. Try and find something palatable and unique which she would enjoy.
5. A Good Grooming Session

National Hug Your Cat Day is observed so that pet owners pay enough attention towards their kitties and make them feel loved more and more. Cats are often mistaken for being reluctant and moody because pet owners fail to handle the kitty in the manner she enjoys it. It is therefore important to comprehend the way they like to receive love.
Just give her lots of cuddles and hugs and she will love you for that. Don’t squeeze her though as it puts her off badly. Understand that she is fragile and needs to be handled gently. If you follow these tips, she is sure gonna stay by your side for the rest of her life, take my words!
