Every time I get a little (or a lot) bummed feeling like we’re never getting engaged I’ll feel something gently pulling at my hair and when I look back my cat will be pawing at it, when she sees me look up at her she rubbs her forhead on mine and then cuddles into my hair and takes a nap. (usually with a paw on top of my head.) The reason this is weird is because she NEVER snuggles, just not one of those cats. She has only done this when that one topic is on my mind. She always just perks me right up! Does anyone else have a pet that does nice things for you when your sad?

My cat used to come to me when I cried at night from nightmares as a child. I loved her so much, and she definitely knew what I was feeling.

When I’m upset, my cat comes and rubs against me and hangs out with me much more than usual. He isn’t a very cuddly cat, but he seems to know when I’m sad.
That’s really interesting that your cat does that only when you are feeling upset about waiting. What a nice kitty!

@MissStruggles: our dog always takes my side if me and my SO are having an argument even I though I normally am not the favourite! My parents dog who I got as a puppy always sits on my lap and licks my tears when I’m upset! He was there when I broke up with my first boyfriend I didn’t want to talk to anyone else he stayed with me for hours! So cute I love animals!

one of my cats knows when i’m sad. he will hang out with me or sleep near me or try to snuggle with me. if i’ve been crying he will literally get in my lap and stay there. my other cat knows i’m sad but doesn’t react the way this one does. it’s nice to know they love and care about me as much as i for them. 🙂
now i need to go hug them!

@MissStruggles: How cute!
Mine did too, only when I was very upset about a couple of things. She came to me, sniffed, then laid with me. Normally she’s a cuddler, but only when she wants it.
It’s nice to have caring cats:) People usually think cats treat owners like servants lol))

My dog always comes to me when I’m sad. Normally, unless she is tired, she likes to be a bit of a tease and do things like sit just out of reach when I want to pet her or search around for things to take and make me chase her for. But if I am sad, she can tell and she will come sit by me so I can pet her and she will lick my face when I’m not expecting it.

@MissStruggles: My puppy can always read my moods. He puts his sweet little head on my lap (or wherever else he can fit it) and give snuggles and kisses. He is quite snuggly in general though. Oh, I miss my little monster today!

This is my SO’s American Bulldog, Xena. She and I are REALLY CLOSE now. I was watching some wedding shows and they make me cry every single time. (I might have been wallowing only slightly in my why-not-me pity). I felt something on my knee and then looked over to see this. She’s the sweetest dog I’ve ever known!

My dogs are clingy when I am sad, even if I am not crying they just instinctively know that I need some extra love 🙂
