This is a “Does your cat like you quiz!” You can make of it what you want. It can’t be 100% guaranteed to tell you whether your cat likes you or not. All it can do is indicate that you’ve got a bond between yourself and your cat which in turn indicates that your cat likes you. It is a bit of fun more than anything else. It is not science!

I’ll state the obvious: it is the human who dictates whether their cat likes them or not. The human creates the environment and manages the relationship. The cat is responsive to what the human does. On that note, a person should know whether their cat likes them or not because they would have created the environment in which their cat is bound to like them. Nonetheless a quiz like this has some value because it reminds people as to the sort of behaviour that cats engage in when there is a bond between them and their human caregiver. The quiz scenarios are not comprehensive. There are many more.
The quiz sets out various scenarios and a cat’s behavior under the circumstances. A ‘correct’ answer indicates that your cat likes you.

Your answers are highlighted below.
You are in the kitchen.
Your cat is disinterested.
This does not mean that your cat does not like you but it might mean that there is an emotional distance between you and your cat
Your cat notices and comes up to you and meows for food.
Cats often respond when their owner is in the kitchen preparing food for themselves. A cat that comes to their owner under these circumstances indicates a nice connection.
Question 1 Explanation:
An emotional connection indicates that your cat likes you.
You go outside into the backyard (garden).
Your cat is awake and follows you into the backyard
This feline behavior indicates a close bond between cat and person which in turn indicates that your cat likes you because she likes being with you.
Your cat is awake and nearby but does not follow you
This is no more than an indication that there may be a disconnect between human and cat.
Question 2 Explanation:
A bond between cat and person must support mutual trust and love.
You pet your cat.
She purrs and licks you.
This is indicative of mutual grooming a.k.a allogrooming. When you pet your cat in her mind you are grooming her. She should groom you in return if there is a friendship. If so, she likes you.
She neither purrs nor licks you.
This would be unusual. If a cat did not respond positively to being petted by their owner it might mean that the petting it performed incorrectly (too strong?) or the cat is nervous of their owner.
Question 3 Explanation:
Between themselves cats allogroom all the time. It indicates a bond between cats. The same happens between people and cats as the cat perceives their caregiver as a surrogate mother or a feline friend.
You go into the backyard and sit down to read a book.
Your cat sees you but does nothing.
Indicates that there might be a loose bond between cat and person. There may be another reason unconnected with the friendship.
Your cat sees you, follows you outside and lies down next to you and greets you with a meow.
Clearly indicative of a bond between human and cat. The cat makes an effort to be with their human. They must like it in which case she likes her human.
Question 4 Explanation:
A desire to be close to their human caregiver at all possible times indicates a close bond and friendship.
You're are sitting on the couch.
Your cat sees you but is unresponsive and stays on the floor.
There may be a range of reasons one of which is that the cat dislikes the person and is even fearful of the person for a particular reason.
Your cat jumps up sits down and places her paw on your arm.
A cat who has a close bond with their human caregiver will be strongly inclined to be next to their human companion and domestic cats like to touch their human with a deliberate stretching of the forepaw to achieve this. But not all cats do this.
Question 5 Explanation:
Cats joining their human companion in close physical contact is a good sign that the cat likes the person.
You are at your desktop computer.
Your cat jumps up and lies all over the keyboard.
Cats like 2 things about computers (1) they are warm and cats like warmth and (2) their human caregiver is probably using it and their cat will like being next to them as they like the company of their human. It reassures cats provided the relationship is sound.
Your cat sees you but does not join you.
Fear or anxiety might be a factor for a cat staying away. But there will be other innocent reasons which care too numerous to mention here. This is only a possible indication that a cat does not like their owner.
Question 6 Explanation:
When cats like their owners (or someone else) joining them at the computer is a great way to be together as the computer gives off heat and they have physical contact with their friend.
You are doing nothing in particular.
Your cat is awake and, in the vicinity, and does nothing in particular.
The bond between cat and person might be weak if this happens all the time. But it is not a certainty. As I said this is not science.
Your cat comes up to you and initiates an interaction perhaps asking to be picked up and cuddled.
A clear sign the cat very much likes the company of their human companion and wants physical contact as it is very enjoyable.
Question 7 Explanation:
Domestic cats like physical contact with 'friends' either humans, cats or dogs. Often this is an outstretched paw to touch the human or dog.
You come home.
Your cat greets you with her tail straight up and a meow. She rubs her flank against your leg.
A classic friendly greeting and engagement which occurs between cats and cats and their good owner.
Your cat sees you but does nothing.
This would be unusual and it would indicate a poorish relationship at least potentially.
Question 8 Explanation:
The tail-up greeting is a good sign of friendship.
You lean towards your cat.
She pulls her head away.
This might not be an issue because big human heads can intimidate cats but it is less good than a head butt!
She head butts you.
The head butt is scent exchange and a clear sign of friendship.
Question 9 Explanation:
Head butts signal friendships.
