Cats are considered loners, but they build close relationships with their masters and mistresses.
They show their love with certain behavior patterns.
Munich – Animal behavior is not always easy to read and understand.
Humans and animals first have to get used to each other and humans have to learn to respond to their companions and correctly interpret their behavior.
Cats, for example, have a lot of gestures to express love and affection.
In exactly the same way, they also send signals of dislike, fear or boredom.
Cat Behavior: With a short blink of the eye, they show their love
When cats let their stomachs be petted, they feel safe.
The relationship between humans and cats can be intimate, even though in most cases the animals could probably get by without our help.
In order to avoid constant misunderstandings between cats and humans in everyday life, it helps to know a few gestures and behaviors of the animal.
This creates an even closer bond and both sides remain happy together for a long time.
If a cat feels good and wants to show her love, she behaves as follows:
Head nuzzling: If your cat comes up to you and rubs his nose or head against you, that's a good sign.
The animal leaves pheromones on your clothes.
Humans cannot smell these fragrances, but animals can.
The cat shows that they belong to each other.
Blinking: It sometimes feels strange to humans when the cat stares at you for a long period of time and blinks in between.
However, this is just a way for cats to show that they like their counterpart and are relaxed.
Have your stomach petted: Similar to dogs, this is a sign of complete familiarity.
If your cat lets you pet its tummy, it will give itself up to you unprotected and trust you that you only have the best in mind for it.
If your cat behaves as described above, the chances of a long and peaceful bond between you and your pet are very good.
Before buying a cat, people should always consider the costs that a pet entails for the purchase and in the course of its life.
This is the only way to ensure problem-free coexistence.
Cat behavior: This leads to misunderstandings
Some cat reactions are intended to let people know that they are stressed or scared.
However, these behaviors are not always so easy to understand.
If your cat accompanies you wherever you go and doesn't take your eyes off you for a moment, it may seem like strong affection at first glance, but in reality there is a great deal of insecurity on the part of the cat.
The constant accompanying also stresses the animal and at some point also the human.
Bringing dead mice or other prey doesn't necessarily mean that your cat wants to give you a present.
The behavior is a basic instinct, as adult cats use it to show their young where their food comes from and what to hunt.
Anyone who is aware of these behavioral traps can approach their animal differently next time and ensure a more relaxed coexistence!
