Have you ever wondered what your cat is really trying to tell you? Well, thanks to Sainsbury’s Bank we have the answer!
You may think your bundle of fluff is simply being affectionate or asking for food when rubbing up against you, but there’s actually more to it than you think! And what about the gruesome yet affectionate hunting trophies they bring for you… or the kneading of soft objects? If you pay careful attention to your cat’s behaviour and the sounds they make, you may learn to understand their mood and intentions better. It could even save you a few playful scratches! Have a look at this pawesome animated guide to find out all about your cat’s behaviours 🙂 Enjoy!
“This is my home, and I scent things to find my way around.”
“Don’t be offended, I’m just being friendly. We cats say hello to each other by sniffing tails, just like dogs.”
“I’m pleased to see you. If you hold out your hand, I might give it a bump to say hello (or a sniff if I’m shy).”
“I’m listening intently. Was it a bird or a mouse? I’m not sure, but I’m off to find out.”
“I’m getting comfy. Kneading you makes me feel good, as I think about how I used to knead my mum.”
“I trust you, but watch your fingers if you decide to give me a tickle; I might be in the mood to play.”
“I’m being defensive. I’m puffing my hair out to make myself look bigger, so whatever I’m scared of leaves me alone”.
“This might look silly to you, but it makes me feel safe; I can see you, but you can’t see me!”
“I’ve brought you a mouse to try and teach you how to hunt. See what a good hunter I am.”
“It’s your turn now.”
“I purr because of most things (dinner, strokes, sitting in sunshine), but mainly because you’ve given me some form of ‘contact’ and I like it.”
I hope you enjoyed this little piece of cat-tastic wizardry thanks to our friends at Sainsbury’s Bank! Until next time!
