Nail biting

Cats love manicure and when their masters are busy and don’t have time to give them a perfect manicure, they prefer to do it themselves. But there are many reasons why your kitty does it. It may also be because of anxiety.


Eye of the tiger
Your kitty may some times give you the eye of the tiger which can be described as “looking penetratingly.” They do it when they are prepared to pounce on the prey.


Sprint
If you find your cat running here and there and bouncing on the couch so don’t worry! She is just enjoying herself.


Unladylike sitting
Ever wondered why do they sit in unladylike posture? Because they find this position highly comfortable. When a cat is relaxed and calm, she enjoys sprawling with legs open.


Rubbing against objects
Why do they rub against you and other objects? The chief reason for her doing so is that she loves rubbing against the things and human she owns and wants the whole world to know it.


They cover their poop
Cats love to keep themselves clean and make sure that nobody ever finds their poop anywhere. For that reason, they cover their poop carefully once they are done.


Hissing
Not only they hiss to show anger, but also fear and anxiety. Many times, cats hiss when they are agitated or to warn you to stay off and avoid a “cat fit.”


Curiosity
Cats are one of the most curious animals on Earth with their natural instinct to inspect every object they see. They love to observe things silently and in an inquisitive manner.

When cats twitch their ears back and forth, they are actually expressing agitation and anxiety. This act is to let you know that you are being irritating and they want you to back off.


Pointed ears

A brief and little meow is actually a greeting from your cat. So, appreciate your kitty for saying “Hello” after seeing you around. This is an act of gratitude so say hello back to your kitty!


Loud meow
