All these things, and love, more love, good food and nommies, cat grass, and catnip! No wonder I'm such a happy person!

Kiss their ears and teach them to speak French!

As long as I give her food when she wants it and keep her litter box scooped, she wants to be left alone. She will hiss and snarl at anybody who tries to pet her.

I have lived with cats who were made happy by some or all of the above and ones like Donna's - the Greta Garbo types. I loved them all.

Not sure speaking French will make them much happier, but it may lead to some great videos. (I just love Henri)

Just love them - they will tell you, show you what they want.

Cats are employees who control vermin in exchange for room and board; I try to treat them as somewhat peers... It maximises their performance and enjoyability.

Great tips. I can check off all 6, but can really do better. I ask a lot of questions when talking to my cats. I think I have to do more praising and thank them for being my companions.

Give them a lot of love and they will return the love as big as the moon.

Purrfectly devine, nothing like contented cats and splendid cat-titude.

I do all of these and more! I could be a card carrying member of the ACCLU (American Cat Civil Liberties Union) if it existed. The love and trust we share is heartwarming.

Cats will always let you know, by their body language, purring, talking or even their silence, what they need or want from their human. Cats are extremely intelligent creatures willing to communicate their needs or wants, if given the chance!

My cat just LOVES the laser light toy.....that red dot skimming on the wall makes him delirious and he'll chase it up and down the hall, in and out of corners.....happy boy!

Dobre rady, piękne zdjęcia. Mam nadzieję, że i moje koty są szczęśliwe. Wzięłam 2 razem ze schroniska, śpią ze mną, dostają dobrą karmę i dużo głasków i wspólnej zabawy.
