Cat behaviors and what they mean

Rate this post

1. Wash the face

What happens when the cat approaches you and rubs his face from the nose, legs to the ears, legs, arms or face? That means the cat likes you, it wants to be close to you. Cats have scent glands on the face. When it rubs with you, it’s an act of getting used to and mixing scent with you. If you want to make a good impression on a cat, keep a finger a few inches away from their nose. If the cat continues to sniff and rub against your hands, you can slowly approach them by gently rubbing the neck area. Face is the most appropriate place to caress a cat. Many cats do not like to be caressed elsewhere until they are older than you.

2. Habit of burying “products” after “going heavy”

Habit of burying “products” after “going heavy”

Our people have a saying: Hide like cats hide … comes from the real phenomenon of cats, that is to bury their products under a layer of sand. This habit has actually been there for a long time, when cats are only wild cats that have not been domesticated by humans. Like dogs, cats use their feces and urine to mark their territory. But cats are more careful than dogs when burying this “tool” on the ground so they won’t be washed away by rainwater.

3. Head your head

Against your friend When a cat hits your friend, that’s how he wants to say hello to you, he believes and feels safe when he’s with you. It is also a way to share your feelings with you.

4. Snarl

Every time I was scratched and stroked, the cat made a giggle, sounding … cute and unspeakable. This strange sound comes from the cat’s throat, with the meaning of showing happiness. In addition, this sound is also used by cats to determine if the opponent is a fellow. In other words, giggling is the language of greeting with “cat”. Besides, mother cats often use their purrs when they are near kittens. At such times, the sound of a mother’s cat will be a reminder to the children to stay close to their mother and not to wander. Well, there is a very interesting detail, that is, it has been shown that a cat’s snooze has the effect of stimulating the production of regenerating tissues. That is, if you sleep with a cat, at least you can recover faster.

5. Give you a gift

This gift can be something you don’t want: an animal or insect corpse right at your feet. Ever since she was a kitten, her mother might have done this for him too. You may encourage its action by paying more attention to it when it gives you a “gift” to give you. Your cat is very generous when sharing his prey to thank you for feeding him, or he simply wants to share the feeling of success in hunting with you, that’s how they show affection. with you. If you do not want to receive such unexpected gifts, you can try to keep the cat in the house or put a bell, a cat accessory on his neck. That makes it difficult to chase prey, which can reduce the number of dead animals or insects that cats love.

6. “Toss” is very warm before grabbing prey

The “cousins” of cats such as tigers, lions and leopards often sharpen their hind legs to the ground before grabbing their prey. This action helps them to have a good jump and land on the prey correctly. But cats are not like that. They have a habit of shaking the back of the body continuously before rushing forward. This is a form of cat momentum, helping them achieve balance on the body, and at the same time creating a resource for an upcoming jump.

7. Gnaw everything

Plastic, dirty items, carpets, wiring, milk bottles, blankets … if your cat eats such things, it may be in a state of eccentricity. Cats that are heterosexual for a number of medical reasons such as digestive disorders, may stem from anxiety. Just like humans often bite their fingers or twist their hair when they feel anxious, cats nibble on inedible things as a way to reduce anxiety. And now is the time to worry about this cat’s strange behavior in this case. These objects can destroy the gums (gums) and digestive system of the beloved cat. And if your cat is anxious, he also needs help. If you have a cat who is constantly eating things that are not cat food, you should take it to your veterinarian for a checkup.

8. What is the secret for cats to land safely?

Did you accidentally let your cat fall from the top of the cupboard? That height makes the amniotic fluid feel big, but it really doesn’t matter to cats. As the image above shows, the cat possesses an extremely great reflex, allowing them to quickly rotate the spine 180 degrees, then put themselves in a position that is ready to ground with four feet. Feet of meat pads act as dampers, making cats easier to land than some other animals.

9. Favorite box and small space

Want to know how to “catch a cat”? Just put out a small box on the floor. Your cat will enjoy it. Being in a small box or space will help your cat feel better and better protected than going out. That also reminds you that they don’t want to be bothered.

10. Staring at you No one does not feel confused when there are unrelenting eyes looking directly at you like that. Don’t be afraid, your cat does not find a way to control (or hypnotize) your mind. It may be trying to catch your attention so you can give him some food. If it doesn’t try to sweeten you for the next meal, it stares at you just because it sees you as a cat and it wants to know exactly what you’re thinking.

11.  Ignore you

At times, the beloved cat stares at you, sometimes the cat ignores you. Like humans, cats need to be quiet alone. When the cat is acting as if he needs a private and quiet space, leave it alone. It will feel safer than your side because it knows you also respect its needs. By letting the cat have time alone, you are making space for the cat to find you when it wants to cuddle, or need you to pat.

12. Screamingat night

All you need is a good night’s sleep. We understand how you feel. The cat’s midnight scream comes from the urge to hunt insects and rodents in your home. The cat’s attempt to capture its prey at this time should lead to a shout of pride or in case it is unlucky and failed. Restrain cat’s excessive energy and urge hunting at night by giving it many games throughout the day. If your cat is an old cat and is very singing at night, there may be a serious problem and need to see a veterinarian.

13. Grind your teeth and chase the birds

The truth is that behavioralists are not sure why cats sometimes clench their teeth when they see a bird, or it’s just a cat’s habit unintentionally. This habit is common in high-caliber wild cats like cats, Maine Coon cats, Bengal, Savannah … Some learners speculate that it was due to the depressed and depressed frustration of not being able to go outside and chase the birds. Others think that moving the jaws that quickly cat is an instinctive reflex that allows kittens to prepare muscles for the act of killing prey. So he always wanted to chase after the birds. Cats have a lot of habits, many of which are very weird and confusing. When you understand them and really learn about it, you’ll find many interesting things.
