Feline behavior: get to know a little more!


All animals carry legacies from their wild ancestors. In the case of domestic cats, the hunting instinct is very strong, even though there is no need to go after the food. That is why pussies are most active in the early morning and at dusk, which is characteristic of feline behavior.

Ofeline behavior varies according to the temperament of each animal, but some attitudes are more noticeable in everyone, such as sleep. Cats sleep an average of sixteen hours a day, taking small naps. Thus, they will be rested and ready for any unexpected action.

Affection, well-being and pain manifest with purring

If the kitten is relaxed, with its ears erect and its tail low, it is quite possible that it will start to purr and jump on its owner's lap to give and receive caresses. This is one of the means of demonstrating satisfaction and well-being that are part of the behavior of cats.

Passing the body and rubbing between the person's legs is another way of expressing affection and saying that he knows who he belongs to. It is also a signal to another feline that is nearby, because at that moment the animal releases an odor that only another cat is able to perceive, and so its owner will be demarcated.

Unfortunately, purring can also mean some pain or discomfort. You have to be attentive.

Bites, fear and aggression

It is common for cats to take small bites while playing with their owners or among themselves. In fact, they are just training their hunting instinct.

Ears low and turned back indicate that the cat is afraid of something and feeling threatened and may react aggressively. In that case, the hair will stand on end, the hips arched, the claws exposed and the tail straight.

Territory marking

The most common way for cats to mark territory is through urine. Rubbing on objects in the house, on the owner, or releasing odor are other forms used as well.

Domestic cats are very skittish animals, but they are not aggressive, so it is important to learn about the Feline behavior.
