It is important to learn the cat's habits and forms of communications. Older cats often meow more than younger cats, and this can indicate that they need a little more attention. Some cats meow excessively because they don't like to be left alone.
If your cat starts meowing much more than usual it might be time for a trip to the vet. It can mean the cat is stressed, or hurt. Of course, sometimes they meow just to say hi, because they want food, or attention.
- To politely say hello to a cat, catch its gaze and look away.
- If a feline gives you a slow blink, that's is like a wink between good friends.
- If you cat approaches you with its tail straight up, it's like a handshake. It's happy to see you.
Do you have a cat? Does he or she "talk" to you?
