Getting to Know Your Cat – Learning To Understand

I’m sure that most cat owners understand that cats can be quite sensitive. Cats might not always use a meow or some kind of vocal sound as a form of communication to other cats. It’s important for us as humans to start to look deeper into the actions of your cat to try and understand where it’s coming from and the message it is trying to give. In other words, get to know how to read your cat’s signs.

The more time we spend with our cats the more we will be able to understand the difference between the natural behaviour of the cat and bad habits that the cat picks up. it’s important to make these distinctions because trying to train a cat to do something that doesn’t align with its natural behaviour will be confusing and will cause resistance. It’s a good idea to do a little bit of research online about the behavioural patterns of your cat so that you can understand what is natural and what is not. Cats usually behave by instinct and it’s good to identify how your cats instincts work.

A good for example of how cats natural instincts work is to take a look at the common litter box. Cats really enjoy going through loose textured material especially when they’re looking for a spot to do their business. This is why kitty litter makes such a useful toilet for your cat. Same type of thing is when your cat is playing with your carpet pile or a ball of wool or some socks. All of these things have high level of fascination for your cat and being able to indulge your cat in playing with these things usually brings total joy to cats.

The vocal expressions your cat uses can also be a great help in getting to know what your cat is trying to say. In time you will be able to to get a very good idea of the different sounds your cat makes and what it meaning to tell you.
