Categories: Animals | People | Photo project

Every cat owner knows that the state of mind of a pet and its attitude towards something can be easily read by its posture, behavior, and facial expressions. To be ready for the different moods of your pet, we advise you to study the basic options of cat poses.

Cat's body language: how your cat speaks to you

1. Relaxed mood.

If the cat lies on its side or back and slowly sinks into sleep, at the same time twitching its paws periodically, this indicates that it is relaxed and calm. At the moment, nothing threatens her and there is no need to be on the lookout...

2. The state of absolute happiness.

Cats can show their happiness in different ways, but the most popular pose for a happy cat is when it lies straight with its front paws tucked under itself and looks around. Have you noticed your cat in such a pose? Do not doubt, she is happy to be near you...

3. Concentrated cat.

When a cat is on the so-called "hunt", trying to catch prey in the form of moths, flies, or even birds, its body signals this in every way. The pet's body is pressed as close as possible to the floor, rear paws are raised. You probably noticed your cat in such a "hunter" pose more than once. At this moment, it is best not to scare or distract the animal until its attempts to catch the prey stop.

4. Game mood.

Cats can demonstrate their playfulness by twisting, lying on their backs, pulling their paws, and sometimes meowing, calling you to play. With such poses, the animal signals that contact with it is safe and does not carry any aggression.

5. Neutral pose.

Cats are in this pose most of the day. They can curl up in a ball and calmly watch what is happening around them, occasionally switching paws and licking themselves.

6. Scared cat.

A curved back is the first sign that your pet is scared or afraid of something. At such moments, cats are ready to deliver an immediate blow to any object that approaches them. The hair that stood up like that serves as an element of a frightening look, which cats use to make the enemy seem scarier and bigger.

7. Anxious pose.

The cat's head is lowered, and the animal's body tries to "sink" into the ground and thus appear smaller. Such a pose indicates that the cat is worried about something and does not know how to proceed.

8. Liberated.

Of course, sometimes the arched back of a cat can signal that the animal just wants to stretch after a long sleep, but it also happens that this posture becomes a signal of emancipation and lack of fear. It is not difficult to see how opposite this posture is to the one that cats take in times of danger... The back is arched to the other side, the eyes are tightly closed with pleasure ...

9. The feeling of comfort in cats.

Cats usually experience this feeling while lying on a warm blanket or even on the owner’s stomach. Cats show such trust only in a state of absolute comfort and calmness, so if your pet sometimes jumps to soak up next to you (or on you), periodically pawing at you, this only speaks of his good disposition ...

10. Friendly mood.

When a cat caresses and rubs against its legs, this indicates that it is set up for communication and does not mind being stroked. In truth, cats are quite cunning creatures and do not always show their friendliness in order to attract your attention. Often they take such poses just to be treated to a tasty treat ...
