Ways to understand what cats say

Some cats (such as oriental breeds) are vocal and have extensive vocabulary, while other cats rarely speak, but we can say that they do not speak at all, and have a meowah that covers all the rules. Whether your cat makes a sound or not, it will be artistic in expressing to you its feelings through body language, which is an essential element in its interaction with you and other animals by controlling both its body and its voice, you can learn to distinguish between saying “feed me” and “help me” And other things the following words are fairly common when learning how to talk to cats:

  1. Short Meow: You mean “Hey, how are you?”
  2. Multiple times meow: It means “I am very happy to see you!” where have you been? I miss you!”
  3. Meow with a medium tone: It means calling something, usually dinner, to treat it, or leave it outside.
  4. Meow like:! Mrrraaaaaoooow: Have you forgotten to feed me, want to eat or hungry now or similar order?
  5. Low-pitched mraaooww: your criticism of your neglect, failure to present the things you like, or a similar complaint.
  6. Sound like Purr: often a sign of complacency, but can also be used as a pain or fear instinctive response to mask weakness from predators.

How you can communicate with cats through body movements

First, the ear:

Cats use their ears to express emotion, and in general, the more the cat’s ears increase laterally and backward, the more their feeling of excitement or anguish, but if the ears are background with its “hiss” or criticism, it is a sure sign that your cat feels threatened or does not like that you do.

Secondly the eyes:

Cats communicate through their eyelids how they are open or closed as well as with the expansion of the iris (the black part of the eye), sudden expansion (enlargement) of the iris due to sudden excitement that may be caused by fear, interest or any other strong feeling. The pupil’s capacity indicates joy and intense enthusiasm for playing, fear or feeling threatened and aggression. If your cat looks at your eyes, this means that he feels comfortable and at ease with you. Hidden eyelids slowly indicate your cat is satisfied with you and show him some passion and love

Third, the tail:

A cat’s tail refers to interest, affection, excitement and more, the height of the tail in addition to movement has the meaning of the anomalous tail is usually a signal to keep the distance of the tail swinging back and forth a sign of play. Lifting the tail straight and ending it is a sign of happiness and reassurance. Moving the tail in a tense way means that your cat is very excited or anxious. Sticking to the tail’s hair in a needle-like shape means your cat is excited or feeling threatened. Swinging the tail too much means the cat is excited and very happy. Tail and nose shaped tail is a sign of intense aggression, and you will notice this hostility often while fighting with a cat or other animal.

Fourth: Fur:
