Staring into space: Cats have keen senses, so they probably saw a fly or a speck of dust.


The ready to pounce quivering butt: Cats wiggle back and forth to position themselves for the perfect attack.

Rolling back and forth: Your cat is showing submission or inviting you play.

 

 

 

 

Sticking a raised butt in your face: Tail sniffing is normal in the cat world, so this is your cats way of saying hello.

Making squinty eyes: Cats squint when they’re content. Closing their eyes slowly is a sign of trust. Try to slowly blink at your cat, it’s a friendly gesture of trust.

Cats sleep in a circle to conserve body heat.

Sitting like a cat loaf: Cats tuck their paws under them when they feel safe, and it also conserves body heat.

Kneading: This is likely a leftover trait from when they were a kitten when they did this to their mother’s stomach to produce milk. When your cat does this it is usually a warm gesture of familiarity and being content, or wanting attention.kitten animated GIF

Exposing its belly: Since the belly is the most exposed area for a cat, this is an enormous show of trust. Don’t confuse this with a cat on its back defending itself. The show of trust is letting you touch the belly.

Sitting on your computer: Cats like warm places.

Chirping or clacking at birds outside: The clicking and chattering is a sound a cat makes when it’s concentrating on a target for the hunt, they often make it out of frustration they cannot reach it.

Cats are always mindful of protecting themselves, and so they find security in confined spaces. A box is exactly that.

The “hug ‘n’ bite”: Biting and wrestling with you is actually not a sign of aggression but of playfulness. Cats forget we don’t have fur to protect us from their teeth and claws.

  1. what about floating? I found a floating cat in the mens bathroom. He seems perfectly happy and healthy, but it’s floating about four feet off the ground next to the sink. Doesn’t seem to be able to move from its current hover-spot. If you pet him, he purrs, and he’ll rub on your body like a normal cat if you get close enough. Fortunately, because he’s right by the sink, it was pretty easy to leave some water and food where he could get it, and it’s nice to have a pet.

    Wish it wasn’t trapped in a hovering prison in the men’s bathroom,

    1. LOL! Yeah! You know I have been leaving comments at your site and it does not show so I think it went to spam. I had a talk with Buddha9 and we did an experiment and I think it is not you all sites, it’s my site that makes it go to spam folder for some reason.
