Cat Behavior Explained

The infographic above from RSPCA shows the way you cat may sit and react in various moods.

A happy cat will be relaxed with its tail up and ears in a natural position. The tip of the tail may be slightly curved and the cats mouth will be closed. If your cat is stretched out and lying down, this is another sign of contentment.

In contrast if your cat is hiding or sitting in a crouched position and exhibiting tenseness, this is a classic sign of a worried cat. Their pupils will be dilated also.

When your cat lies down and flattens their body they may be exhibiting signs of anger or unhappiness. This is a very handy chart, be sure that you pin.

Cats convey a whole range of emotions through their tails too. When they are overjoyed their tail will be straight up in the air.

When they are in a friendly mood it will have a slight curve and when they are swishing it from side to side they are agitated and annoyed. If they are angry it will bristle.

Cats love to interact with humans and they show their affection in all sorts of ways. When a cat rubs up against you, he is marking his territory and saying that you are his property.

If your cat tries to eat your hair, he is cleaning you and it’s another sign of love and affection. When your cat licks you, it’s another sign that you are trusted and part of the family.

When they are scared, they will tuck their tail under their hind legs and when they are content, they will have their tail sitting out behind them. Their Ears, Eyes and Whiskers also are key indicators as you can see from the infographic above.

When your cat Meows, they are trying to communicate. When they blink slowly, they are showing that they trust you completely. Cats also swallow and digest their food without chewing.

Cats can also suffer anxiety. Spraying (urinating), pacing and grooming their fur to the point that the fur rubs off are some of the common signs that your Cat may be stressed. They can also suffer from separation anxiety when you are not around.
