Why does she do that?
Have a funny feline in your home? Our expert reveals some of the top reasons why our cats act the way that they do.
Your kitty cares about you, so she likes to see what you're up to. She's likely to follow you into the kitchen, your bedroom, and yes, even your bathroom. She is curious, and she wants to see what you're up to. Lock her out and she's most likely to look through the window to find you. She loves you and you are her primary focus of attention.
Cats are intrinsically designed to scratch — with or without claws. With claws, your kitty is most likely to find a favorite object and continuously scratch at it because it's familiar and it feels good. Avoid this by replacing the object with a cat tree or scratching post.
Rubbing against furniture
Just like your dog who likes to pee to mark his territory, your cat likes to rub her fur on things to make her presence known and to show ownership. Because cats have glands on their heads, face, whiskers and pads, your cat likes to rub on things to release her sent.
Notice that your cat will also rub her head against you when showing affection? She is not only showing you that she is happy, but she's also showing you that she owns you. And you thought you were the pet owner!
Want to know how your kitty is feeling? Check out her ears! When lying flat or pointed, your cat is angry and irritated. You are most likely going to see a more aggressive side of her when her ears are in this formation.
When her ears are perked forward or straight up, you have a happy and alert kitty. She's curious, affectionate and overall good to be around when her ears are perky.
Like ear movements, your cat's tail movements are one of the top ways to understand how she is feeling. Here are the various tail movements your cat is likely to make and exactly what they mean.
