Those wiggling eyes, that cute purring, that waving of its mouth on its fur, all these symbols of a cat are done by it so that their owner can understand them, understand what they want. But the owner is usually in capable of doing so, as he has no expertise in sign language or is not simply a psychologist, that can read brains. As we know, everything in this world speak of its own, in a parallel manner, each pet wants its owner to understand some things about it. They can’t speak, so they perform some activities that we render as “cute” and leave them unnoticed. Well, here are a few facts or things that you must know or the things that your cat wants you to know about it.
1. I love water
It is commonly observed that unlike dogs, cats are extremely fond of water. They love to dip their paws in water and then, lick them. Although obsessive about being water, they just like to play with it without getting their whiskers involved. It has been observed that cats don’t like their whiskers to get wet, so they usually dip their claw in the water bowl to find out the level of water, and then, drink from that bowl.
2. How about a little talk?
Although talking to animals may seem weird to many of the people out there, but if you want your cat to talk to you, you will have to make the initiation. Although they won’t understand a word you say, still they like a person sitting in front of them, trying to make a conversation. It helps them leave their fear regarding humans behind, and become more interactive with them.
3. I will always be by your side!
No matter what you give your cat to play with, they will jump on your work desk and curl itself at the place you are trying to work, If not so, they would just climb up your lap while you are sitting and would like you to play with them.
4. I have been with cats, I don’t like humans!
This is really common with some cats. They refrain themselves from human company. They are afraid of them. This usually happens because these cats have a background of living with the species of their own kind. They have never ever experienced a human patting their back or waving their hand on their head. So they run away from humans, hide themselves, or become aggressive. This is usually the case with small kittens. This can be mended by a little training, and giving them a little time to adjust with their new companions.
5. Keep the toilet seat down!
As already mentioned, cats love to play with water, What happens sometimes is while playing with water, they put their claws into the toilet pot, and it being slippery, they fall into the pot. Lacking any sort of friction or grip in the pot, they just sit in their and wait either for their owner, or unfortunately to pass out. So always remember to put on some safety measures when you are bringing a cat at home. Don’t forget keeping the toilet seat down.
6. I have developed trust in you, Human!
Sometimes, cats show weird behavior. They sit in your lap, purr a little, and then face the other way and roll up. This sign of cats might give an inference that they are ignoring you, but on the contrary, this gesture means that they have developed faith in you, and are willing to guard you from any calamity. That is why, they face the other side.
7. Look deep into my eyes
On a personal note, I find cat’s eyes resembling to that of an alligator’s, minus the application of the quote “Alligator’s Tears”. Cats show true emotions with the help of their eyes. Having dilated pupil, running from top to bottom, these animals say that if you want to know, what I am up to, or what I am thinking, you ought to look deep into my eyes and find the solution for yourself.
8. I love Grass
The heading might be misguiding. Cats are very fond of grass too. They love sitting in grass, lying over it, and even chewing it. But cats are not grazing animals. Although they consume grass, but their system cannot digest it, so they end up puking. It is our responsibility that our cat does not go consuming grass, which might cause them health problem, and a visit to the vet.
As a conclusion, I would like to say that having a responsibility of an animal is just like having a kid. You have to be extra cautious and protective for everything, especially when they are in growing age. After they grow up, they develop a mature mentality, and start looking out for themselves, as to what is good and what is bad. It is not the case that you can’t train your cats. With proper training and care, they can be an ideal pet for you. It must be noted that keeping more cats is extra responsibility along with fun.
