|Are you polite with your cat?|
Gestures and facial expressions of the cat's owner. Communication with the cat: be careful! When it comes to dealing with cats, many owners of these animals only pay attention to the gestures and facial expressions of their pets, forgetting about their own attitude towards their kitties.
But actually, it is very important to learn how to treat your cat properly - without causing her any discomfort with your behavior. It is no less important than learning to understand what your pet is trying to tell you. Therefore, your should pay a particular attention to your facial expressions and gestures while communicating with your cat, because the contact with this wonderful animal requires a special approach.
Respect is important!
First of all, never forget about respect for your pet. It is manifesting itself primarily in the fact that there is a time to pet the cat, if she wishes so, and there is a time to leave her alone, if she needs some privacy. Never make any sudden gestures toward the cat - it may scare her, and remember that this animals do not accept any rough caress. Keeping this in mind, remember only a few simple rules, that will help you to improve your communication with your furry friend:
Another aspect: if you do not know what to do with the cat, let her tell you what she wants. The best gesture - slowly stretch your hand out to the cat without touching the animal, if she will retreat, do not touch her, if she poked her nose in your hand, first gently touch the top the head or the cheek of your pet and then pick her up. In no case do not make any sudden gestures, if you want a cat to play with you: it may annoy her or make her doubt if there is any need to communicate with you.
Also, do not overreact with stroking your cat: many cats do not like too much stroking, and if you stroke them for too long, they may bite you. If you notice such behavior in you own cat - it is better not to overreact with affectionate hugs and stroking.
Cats are able to recognize not only your gestures, but also you facial expressions and intonation of your voice, so if you want to be understood correctly, be sure to watch yourself! Talking to the cat, you should not:
Sometimes it happens that you just can not get along with the cat, and to all your gestures she is responding with angry hissing and growling, and even trying to strike. Very often it happens when you are bringing an adult animal to the house, or if you appear in the house while the adult cat is already living there with her owner. It is very difficult to "reeducate" an adult animal, but often there is no need to do so - just behave respectfully and peacefully with the cat, and gradually she will respond you with the same respectful behavior. "Forbidden" gestures in this case are as follows:
And one more thing: you might think that our facial expressions does not mean anything to animals and they are not able to distinguish if you are smiling or knitting your brows, but this is a misconception. Cats are able to easily guess your facial expressions and to recognize your mood, and if you will look angry, the cat will simply not come closer. Also, do not look away, if you are dealing with a cat, but do not watch her too closely. These animals do not tolerate insincerity and too obsessive attention, so try to treat your cat the same way you would like her to treat you, especially if you want to establish a proper communication between you two. Only in this case will you succeed in communicating, and your favorite cat will be even closer to you than she was before.
