Cats have been living next to humans for several thousand years. Despite this, we have not made much progress in understanding these animals. Cats, even the most friendly and sociable, always have their secrets, these little predators strictly protect the boundaries of privacy, not allowing anyone to cross them.
We want to tell you about 7 things that should be avoided in dealing with these tailed pets, unless, of course, you want to get a small, but vindictive enemy by your side.
For any cat, the tail is an inviolable zone. The animal protects him from the encroachments of outsiders for a reason. The tail is an extension of the spine, part of the cat's back. Nature has decreed that in this part of the cat there are many nerve endings that are extremely sensitive to the slightest impact.
If you step on the tail by accident, it is unpleasant, but not critical, but the passion of children to constantly grab the animal for it can already have consequences. The cat will very quickly begin to associate a specific person with a negative impact and will at least avoid meetings with her.
If you see that the cat is sprawled on the couch and purrs from time to time, it does not mean that she calls you to sit down next to her and start squeezing her. At such moments, the small indoor predator is in power saving mode and restores the spent forces.
Interrupting such meditation is equivalent to a cat's abrupt exit from sleep. Of course, this will cause irritation once or twice, and then you will completely lose the trust of the animal. This means that it will find a more secluded place to rest and you will see the pet much less often.
Like any decent predator, your cat should hunt daily. If you don't spend enough time playing with your pet, then soon various objects will become the object of attack, for example, furniture, flowers in vases and shoes. You will have to reconsider your attitude to communicating with a cat and pay more attention to it, or just put up with the destruction.
Prohibitions and punishments in such cases are not the best choice for the owner. Forbidding a pet to play with a Christmas tree garland, you will become enemy number one for a while. You will probably be ignored for several days in a row until you gradually rehabilitate yourself with a loyal attitude or abundant edible gifts.
Cats are animals with extremely developed sensory organs and a very vulnerable nervous system. Constant shouting and swearing in the house for the animal becomes a real torture. Even worse, if you shout at the animal itself — this can cause not only increased nervousness, but also hearing impairment.
Cat ears are a subtle tool for perceiving the world around you and they amplify your cry many times. It will seem to you that nothing terrible has happened and you will forget about the incident in a few minutes, but a frightened and stunned animal will get a great reason to avoid you in the future.
It's no secret that cats are very clean animals and they wash a little bit at once. Any hint of dirt or an extraneous smell is an excuse to thoroughly walk through the wool with your tongue. But we rarely think about it and grab a furry friend in an armful when we are in the mood, or just like that, in passing.
Of course, this is followed by a large-scale washing, but it does not always reach its logical end and the cat may again end up in someone's "affectionate" hands. And again, dirt particles visible only to the animal's eye and nose on the fur, and again licking. If you grab a cat with your hands too often, then very soon you will become associated with insecurity and unsanitary conditions.
Your pet will not forgive locked doors, behind which so many interesting things can happen. If the cat does not satisfy her curiosity, then she will not be herself! You will definitely lose friendly contact with your pet if you close everything you can.
Don't be cruel and let the cat walk around the house at least once a day — it will be a real gift for her. Smells from the kitchen, pigeons outside the bedroom window, the ticking of the wall clock in the living room. It seems to you that nothing is happening, but cats live by their emotions and notice more interesting things than people.
Almost every one of us, at the sight of a fluffy cat, hands involuntarily reach out to stroke it. But sometimes you also want to pull his cheeks, scratch his tummy and tickle the pads on his paws. Yes, you never know what kind of tenderness will come to the mind of a cat lover. Even more familiar are children who can swaddle a cat, especially if he does not have a violent temper.
You need to know that such games are unpleasant for cats, and sometimes they frighten them very much. It should also be taken into account that cats are very independent and, by making him the object of all sorts of fraternal antics, you are literally insulting the animal. How can we talk about normal friendly relations after that?
And it is also well known that cats love women more than men, and there is a completely scientific explanation for this.
