I’m not a cat-owner, I’m not a cat-lover either, but owing to the worlds current and undying obsession with cats I have become what I call a cat-writer. That’s a term I have coined as that’s what I am nowadays. It’s a person who is a blogger but writes about cats almost all day, everyday. We know a lot more about cats than we would like, cat related art, cat costumes, cat insta accounts, cat cafes and so on. So it’s high time we also understood their body languages just in case we need to get a cat home someday as we are cat-writers after all. Can’t stay cat-deprived for too long can we? So here goes-
1. Social roll- this is apparently a way of cats to acknowledge your presence socially. Don’t go crazy running their tummies. And no they don’t want that Japanese cat costume you wrote about a month ago.
2.crouching- this is what cats do when they are worried about something and want to scram. I bet it’s the ninja costume they’re selling for felines. Or did someone say they’re getting Hello Kitty home?
3.hop-up: that’s your cat greeting you with its body up on hind legs. Yes they copy dogs sometimes. It must be a four-legged thing.
4. Mid-tail wag- this is what indecisive cats do. What have you poured in that bowl for dinner? Something fishy?
5. Tail quiver- a.k.a pseudo spray, the tail quiver is a marking behaviour or also a way of greeting the owner.
6. Piloerection at tail base- cats love to be stroked that’s no secret but this indication means you’ve got to stop loving the feline so much. It’s a sign of excitement or perhaps even overexcitement. Stop right there.
So here it goes, tips and tricks for bloggers or people who are planning to buy cats cause the world is. It may help you understand cats or it may help you understand cats and not get one at all. I love dogs. Period.
