A cat can convey their feelings in manners as simple as the movement of their tail. In that case, the brushing up of their tail against you can be a way of just saying hello in human language, or it could be a display of affection and for their owner. The purring sound a cat makes when you scratch behind their ears can indicate their satisfaction and pleasure. Yet, although we make general assumptions based on a cat’s behavior and actions, there is no way to understand them perfectly.
What would cats say if they could speak human? What would they tell us about what they think, how they feel? There are many instances where a cat’s behavior is troubling, confusing at best.
How do you understand why your pet cat is acting in an unruly, unfriendly manner? Sometimes a cat’s behavior is molded by their environment. Cats brought up in loving, affectionate homes are likely to be more friendly and even-tempered towards their owners. Cats who come from homes of abuse or neglect may behave differently, and only owners who know of their prior experiences could somewhat understand why their cat is the way they are. Cats who may be lethargic, or refuse to eat, may be feeling ill but have no way of communicating that to humans. If cats could speak human, they could tell us why they pee on our rugs, why they may snap at us when we try to pet them, or why they won’t eat the food we give them. But alas, cats are a difficult breed, and the inner workings of the feline mind are too out of reach for us to fully comprehend yet.
Although we come closer to analyzing cat behavior and attempting to understand the feelings of our feline companions, we still cannot speak the language that they do, and therefore we must rely on their body language and expressiveness to understand what we can.
