Understanding Cat’s Body Language

Every “crazy cat lady� out there will tell you that cats are great conversationalists. And it’s completely true: cats have a lot to tell you. Fortunately, understanding how to communicate with your cat is as easy as learning to read cat body language and translate those adorable meows to words. If you’re a bit rusty when it comes to feline communication, this article will help you finally understand what your kitty is trying to tell you: Speaking Feline: Cat Vocalizations Explained Cat Body Language: Ears and Eyes Tell-Tail Signs Understanding Your Cat’s Body Language How To Communicate With Your Cats Speaking Feline: Cat Vocalizations Explained From different variations of meow to a variety of weird sounds, cats definitely don’t hesitate to vocalize their demands or opinions. The problem is, understanding cats is not always easy. If you can’t tell the difference between an irritated meow and a playful one, you’re bound to get scratched! Here are the most common types of meows… Conveniently translated to human, of course. Short, high-pitched meow: “Hi, human! How’s it going?� A number of short meows at once: “I’m so happy you’re back! Instead of jumping at you like a silly dog, I’ll just tell you I’ve missed you! Soft, pleading meows: “I’m hungry, so I’ll be a super-cute suck up. How can you resist feeding me right away?� Drawn out or low meow: “The service at this place sucks. You’re really getting on my nerves, human servant.� However, recognizing the meaning of a meow is just part of learning cat language.

It’s often used as a greeting or a way to get your attention by being completely adorable. It doesn’t get cuter than that! Chirping Your kitty is proving their hunting skills by trying to attract unassuming wildlife. Try not to scare off their prey by gushing over them and giggling at the cute sound they make. Yowling Sounding like a cross between yodel and howling, this particular feline sound is one of the most irritating. Although yowling is a mating call that’s usually reserved for cats in heat, spayed and neutered cats can yowl too. Hissing and growling Reserved for situations when they’re frightened or furious, the hiss and growl routine is never a good sign. If you don’t suspect that your cat is in pain or injured, this probably means it’s best to just stay away. Soundless meowing A meow so silent you barely hear can sometimes be a sign of exhaustion or hunger and dehydration. Of...
