Meow! That’s the noise you hear when you meet your cat walking down the hallway. He will move with his head and tail held high, looking straight in your eyes and emitting a faint sound summoning you to follow him wherever he goes. That is your cat? Right? The fluffy little mass, whose behavior looks very unusual sometimes, and leaves you baffled with a number of questions.

Maybe you believe that your cat is an aloof creature to you? Then it’s simply because you don’t understand him. Your cat is definitely trying to communicate to you through its gestures and also body language, so to understand your cat more, you need to know your cat’s body language. The sweeping of the tail or maybe rubbing of the cheeks, pricking of the ears or maybe purring under his breath – each offers a significance of its own. Your cat will frequently rub its cheeks against you or against the cheeks of another cat, by doing this it attempts to pick up or leave scent markers so that it can develop future physical contact.

Importance of tail movement

The tail is actually the most important part of your cat’s body, it indicates a number of actions and reactions. The tail frequently indicates its mood and also intention. If your cat is actually sweeping its tail with wide gestures, then it represents annoyance or perhaps impatience at your own excessive petting. If you continue to cuddle, the cat might begin growling softly or “batting” you with its paws. An immediate sweeping of the tail forward and backward, right from the middle exhibits a serious agitation in your cat.

In the event you find your cat turning its body totally sideways and extending its bristled tail upwards, your kitty is most likely heralding a conflict with another cat. When your cat is busy trying to trap prey, you’ll find him being more cautious, involved in delicate movements and inflating its tummy while all the time intently looking at the prey. Frequently you’ll find your cat lowering its tail to tuck it between his legs, which shows his total obedience. An elevated tail furthermore indicates that your cat really wants to be friendly, and a twitching of the tail will confirm its anticipation to be with you at the end of a long day.

Movements of other areas of the body

Together with the tail, the cat’s gestures speak volumes regarding its mood and behavior. While bent legs represent protecting itself, outstretched legs may represent self-confidence and self-assurance. If your cat’s ears are back and the body low, it’ll impart its shame or even remorse; pricked ears will denote interest in the happenings around it. In the event you find your cat with his head completely lowered then it may present boredom and also sneaking subtly with its head lowered to the ground will mean that your cat is preparing a full-fledged assault on the victim ahead.

Understanding these types of cat behaviors will definitely strengthen the bond between you and your feline friend.
