As cat proprietors, we do worry that our cats are happy and want to do whatever we can to see them so. One of the best ways to make sure your “cat-o-nine-tail” is joyous is to understand their body language and the signs of happy to give you reassurance and to help distinguish possible problems.
Signs of happiness
Cats are quite good at body language because that’s how they communicate with other cats. Cats have a range of vocalisations that they use to tell the world what the hell is descended and think and when it is necessary to happy and equanimity, the purr is one of the most obvious. “Cat-o-nine-tails” purr when they are happy, appear adored and are pleasant and even if you can’t hear them, you can always appear a purr as it rattlings through their whole torso. Other little noises can be signals of happy, depending on the “cat-o-nine-tail”, little trills and cackles that establish “they il be” relaxed.
The physical signals of happy in their body language is likewise quite obvious, more for the limited availability of signals. An furious “cat-o-nine-tail” is visibly furious with erect coat, wide-ranging eyes, ears forwards and a tush trouncing the breeze. Likewise a frightened “cat-o-nine-tail” may see themselves small, writhe their tush around themselves and duck down to be submissive and little warning. Yet a relaxed and “cat-o-nine-tail” joyous cat will have their ears make to listen to what’s going on or swivelling around to follow the conversation. They will tuck their tush loosely around them or leave it lying across the storey. Their coat is smooth and their streaks sit comfortably.
A sleeping “cat-o-nine-tail” is often a joyous “cat-o-nine-tail” as this means they appear pleasant enough in their surrounds to have a catnap. If they seemed menaced or in danger, they would remain awake and on guard. Similarly, grooming is a sign of being joyous. “Cat-o-nine-tails” groom themselves to keep their coats in order and do derive pleasure from the purposes of the act. By concentrating on their train and not their wider context, they are vulnerable to attack hence will merely centre utterly on their train when they are happy in their home.
Eating properly is a sign of happy and healthiness. While cats might try to’ desire’ from beings for plows or other morsels, this isn’t because they are thirsty but more a type of recreation. They may genuinely figment a little bit of the fish you are eating but not because they are desperately thirsty. A joyous “cat-o-nine-tail” is one that eats naturally, though different cats have a different impression of normal. Some eat their snacks in a single sitting while others are grazers who come and go to the meat bowl.
Sometimes with kittens, they may seem furious or chafed at something but this may simply be a part of their play-act. Kittens learn about “the worlds” around them through play-act and most everything around the house will be a part of this. So while they are likely hiss or spitting at something, whip their tush around or even bite and scratch something, this doesn’t mean they are angry and hapless but simply that they are working their instincts.
