Learn to speak cat with our handy guide!
Cats may not be able to talk to us, but they definitely know how to communicate their feelings!
Whether they’re mad, sad, angry or (more often than not) non-plussed, what a cat does with their tale reveals a lot about what they’re thinking.
Decode your cat’s behaviour with our handy guide to what your cat is trying to tell you…
This means your cat is pleased, comfortable and feeling confident. If you’re returning from a long day at work and your kitty looks like this, it’s like they’re saying ‘Welcome home, I’m pleased to see you, let’s hang out.’
A rapid flicking of the tale is a sign that your cat is NOT impressed. Cats’ tails also quiver when they’re marking their territory, especially when they’re in heat, since the glands under their tail contain pheromones to attract their mate.
