If it is the first time that you live with one of these wonderful animals, it is likely that you have wondered how to interpret the language of cats, truth? They are very mysterious, and at first it is quite difficult to understand what they are trying to tell us, since as we know they cannot speak.
But they do have a language with which they convey a message to us. Let's see what it is.
Signs of friendship
A cat will tell you in various ways that it considers you its friend. Actually yes rubs against you it will be leaving you its smell; a scent that only he, other cats and dogs will perceive. You will also see that it approaches you with the tail raised, head a little down, ears forward, Closed mouth y without looking you straight in the eye, unless you raise your hand with the intention of caressing it, of course 🙂.
Signs of fear / insecurity
When a cat is afraid it can choose to flee or attack. Keep in mind that you are always going to try to flee, but if you feel cornered, you can hurt. So, you will see that it has the dilated pupils, ruffled back and tail hair, open mouth -showing teeth-, nails pulled, and ears back or forward. Furthermore, he will stare at his "opponent", growl and snort.
Signs of illness
If your furry is sick, he probably has the eyes half open for the whole day. You will see down, as if it were "turned off." Will have the tail down; and, depending on the problem, you may have the mouth more or less open. In any case, if you notice that he is not feeling well, it will be necessary to make a visit to the vet to examine him.
We hope we have helped you understand your cat's body language. Over time you will see how it is even easier for you 😉.
