In the next few months, I want to discuss the psychological understanding we have about cats and the way they behave. Most of you cat lovers may know some or all of the things I will discuss, however, I thought it would be a nice idea to go over different aspects of cat’s behavior and the reasons behind it.
Cats rub their face and body on certain objects or a person to mark their scent. This we all know; however, it also is considered as part of showing affection. Cats also greet by touching each other’s noses. They may even rub their face onto your cheeks to display their strong affection.
Cats rub on your leg or body to make you smell like them. The more you smell like them, the more they want to be around you.
Kneading assists the mother cat to give milk to her kittens. When they get older they knead with their paws indicating what they remember of their mother.
Sometimes cats knead on humans. This is because they are trying to calm themselves when they are nervous.
Contrary to what some think, cats are just as bonded and protective towards their owners as dogs are. They just don’t show it like dogs do.
Cat’s help humans
Studies have shown that a cat owner is less likely to have a heart attack by 40%! This is because when cats purr, they help the owners body and themselves. The purring actually cuts down on the effects of dyspnea – difficulty breathing – in humans and cats.
