The language of cats

This week’s theme for National Pet Month is pet behaviour. Did you know that if a cat rolls on their back to expose their tummy to you, this doesn’t mean they want a tummy tickle, but is a greeting or indicates that they want to play? And that if your cat walks towards you with tail up (possibly with a curve and a slight wave), ears forward, a relaxed gait and almond-shaped eyes, they are happy to interact with you and it’s another way of saying ‘Hi’?

Observing and learning more about a cat’s behaviour can help us create more positive interactions, tells us when our feline friends are happier to be left alone and can help us to identify when they are feeling under the weather more quickly.
