Read Your Cat's Body Language
Just like us, cats can reveal their moods and emotions through body language. They often use a variety of signals that include body posture, facial expression, and sounds to write a message. By learning how to better understand these small signals, you start developing a stronger bond and new ways to show affection.
These are some things you can keep in mind while analyzing your cat's behavior:
Have you ever noticed how your cat tends to roll and show their tummy when they are showing affection? When your cat is content and relaxed, they may stretch out and roll over - which makes them look even cuter than they already are. With this movement, your cat is probably showing how comfortable it is around you, letting you know that you were able to provide him with a safe space.
But be aware, some cats don't enjoy having their bellies touched and can feel bothered if you try it. It's always a matter of understanding your cat's personality and working along with it to create enjoyable moments for the two of you.
The tail position can be a good way to measure if it's happy, confident or concerned. When it's lifted high, it shows confidence - but when in an unknown territory or while feeling threatened a lifted tail can indicate a willingness to attack.
Just like dogs, cats can wiggle their tails to show affection and to prove that they are happy and feeling safe. But don't expect the movement to be like a dog's, cats tend to wiggle their tails in a much slower pace, almost like they are trying to show you how charming they can be.
Even though a long, unblinking stare may not be the best way for humans to show affection, when your fur baby does this, it may mean they're showing you some real love. And we are sure you are familiar with those cute moments when your cat just stares at you with half-closed eyelids accompanied by some slow blinking - that means they are also showing they love you.
Cats can be great with sharing their emotions, you just need to pay enough attention to identify what they choose to represent affection, fear and anger. When you start understanding their actions as part of their communication, everything gets easier.
