30 Melancholic Cats Waiting For Their Humans To Return

ADVERTISEMENT

Many people say that cats aren’t as affectionate with their owners as dogs, but these cats definitely look like exceptions to this rule. We collected this list of cats waiting by windows for their owners to return to show you that cats can also show us love and affection in their own way.

Various scientific studies have shown that cats are probably less attached to us than we are to them – one study showed that a cat briefly separated from and then reunited with its owner will not run to them the same way that a toddler or a dog will. However, most cat owners (including myself) have plenty of anecdotal evidence that their cats love them – from purring morning headbutts and paw massages to gruesome gifts of mice and birds.

I joined Bored Panda as an image editor back in 2014, during its early stages. It's been quite a journey since then! Over time, I transitioned through different roles until I eventually became the Content Lead. In this position, I now oversee the creation of the viral content published here on Bored Panda. While my primary focus lies in raising awareness about important social issues like gender and race equality, as well as mental health topics, I also enjoy sharing lighter content, such as memes, cat images and intriguing world curiosities. Outside of work, you'll likely find me engaged in one of five activities: planning a vacation, browsing thrift stores, experimenting in the kitchen, watching movies, or spending quality time with my two cats.
