Why do Cats Chatter Their Teeth?

This article first appeared on iCatCare here.

Teeth-chattering is usually heard when there’s a bird outside the window which a cat is watching but can’t get to. It may then run up to the window or sit and make this strange tooth-chattering noise, which may be frustration or excitement or both.
