Just minutes a day of learning gives you the best relationship possible with your cat!

Getting Started - Feline communications

How to talk cat

Cats use their senses to communicate.  Cats give and read both body and facial expressions. You can learn to recognize offensive and defensive postures as well as willingness or unwilling to interact.

Visual:   Cats read body postures, tail, head, body, and ear positions (Must be hard for cats to read our bodies.)

Tactile:  Cats rub against others and objects, touch noses, groom each other. (Try rubbing noses:-)

Sound:  Cats purr, growl, and vocalize to express themselves. (Cats read our voice tone.)

Smell:   Cats mark territory and possessions using their feces and urine, by spraying and placing pheromones from paw pads and cheek areas.

Feliway is a pheromone-based product used to calm cats and lower stress.
