Understand Your Cat in Its Own Language

A cat owner always tries to do their best for their cat. But when it comes to communicating to your cat it becomes difficult than dogs. But there are some signals that your cat is using to communicate with you. Though it is not easy to understand, it is not that much difficult too. In fact, now you can find the cat language translator guide that will help you to understand the cat’s language. Cat shows different signs in different situations. They attempt to convey their feelings in a variety of way. You need to focus on their vocalisation and body language to understand them. Sometimes they also try to convey their message through body scent.

This way of communication is known as the cat’s feline behaviour. To understand this you need to be a little focused. As this varies depending on your cat’s breed, you need to know that too. Cat usually communicate in three ways. Through sounds, body language and sometimes body scent. Mainly you can follow them in two ways. Either by their sounds or by body language. These are described below:


  1. Meow: By making this sound your kitty try to communicate with you or any human. Generally, they don’t use this when dealing with another feline companion. In fact, the feral cats hardly meow.
  2. Purr: It’s a happy sound that your cat make sometimes to comfort itself too. But in some cases, it makes this sound when they are afraid or uncomfortable. To understanding in which situation your cats normally purr, notice the surroundings and the environment of your cat.
  • Growling: It’s known to most of the cat owners that the cats growl usually when they are upset, angry or in the season. Generally, when your cat is growing it means that it is furious and it will cause trouble if you don’t stop doing something that is causing it trouble.
  1. Hissing: Hissing is your cat’s defensive strategy. When your cat is scared or threatened it hisses to compel the threat to back off.

2.Body Language:

  1. The Head: If your cat is greeting by stretching its head forward with the chin up, it means that the cat needs affection. If you are home after a long time and your cat shows this gesture, maybe it needs food and water. If your cat has no interest it will show the opposite behaviour. So, you need to notice its behaviour to understand what it is trying to convey you.
  2. The Eyes: When your cat wants your undivided attention, it will stare at you or give a continuous look at you. Also, when they want to draw your attention to something they do this. If they get what they want they will meow to express its gratitude. On the other hand, it is sensitive to the glare. It feels uncomfortable when someone stares at it and instantly stops their work when they’ll understand that they are being watched.


  • The Ears: Just by observing your cat’s ears and whiskers you will know if your cat is annoyed, relaxed, fearful or content. This is the most important body part of your feline that can clearly indicate their mood and feeling.


  1. The Tail: The position of the tail tells a lot about your cat’s intention. For example, when the tail is flowing behind, your cat is relaxed and confident. If the tail is bent in u-shape, your cat is excited. So, by knowing about their tail’s position you can predict their behaviour.


Among all other pets, cats are considered as the most mysterious one. But it is their mysterious behaviour that makes them interesting to us. And it becomes more interesting when you can communicate to them in their own way.
