Cats sometimes get a bad rap for being aloof. And sure, some cats are, but there are lots of cats that are just as cuddly, needy, and human-focused as your average dog. And like your average dog, they go BANANAS when you come home.
1.This little guy wishes with all his heart that he had opposable thumbs so he could let his human in faster.
And this furball takes the stairs, like, five at a time, so he can get cuddles stat.
2. This guy patiently waits on the front steps for his person to come home and then instantly flips into CUDDLE MODE.
3. And this kitty is just going to sit on the fence until you get back because go big or go home, right?
4. Okay, so this cutie is obviously too lazy to get up off the ground but it's okay because LOOK KITTY IS WAVING WITH BOTH PAWS, DAWWWWW.
5. This furry friend is NOT too lazy to get up off the ground and literally leap into their person's arms.
