When a dog loves you, it's super obvious. When you have a cat...there's really no way of telling. Here's a fun checklist to test if your cat loves you.

I came across this on HuffPost, mostly because my newly adopted cat, Mila, was staring at me and rubbing her head on my laptop. Now, it's only been three weeks of us living together...but like any parent would do. I googled.

And this is the checklist I found! So far, it seems like Mila and I are off to a good start!

  • 1

    Kneading Your Legs

    It's their cat way of saying, "Hey, I love you too."

  • 2

    Bringing You a Present

    OK, Mila has yet to do this...but now I'm expecting one any second.

  • 3

    Head-Butting You

    CHECK! Mila head-butts me constantly. Side note: she doesn't like it when it's done to her.

  • 4

    Staring into Your Eyes

    Definite check, her and I engage in a staring contest almost once an hour.

  • 5

    Showing You Their Belly

    Just, don't touch it!

  • 6

    Curving the Tip of Their Tail

    Yes, but I've also heard wagging too much was bad. I don't know what to believe here.

  • 7

    Nipping you

    Yes! First time she did this I was so confused, now it's our greeting hello.

  • 8

    Rubbing Against Your Legs

    ...and your arms, laptop, feet. Anywhere, anytime. Even if you're using the bathroom.

    Following You Around

    Where I go, Mila goes. Even in the bathroom.
