Why Does My Cat...
Why Does My Cat Always Like to Curl Up in Small Places?
Choosing a small location to curl up into also may make the cat feel like it is easier to keep an eye out for intruders or predators, especially if the space is hidden or up high. It is also more difficult for larger predators to attack the cat if he is in a small location. In general, cats only tend to sleep sprawled out on their sides when they are in a comfortable, protected environment, such as inside their homes. However, if your cat likes to sleep curled up in small places, it does not necessarily mean he does not feel safe. Just as some people like to sleep in a certain position, the same applies to cats. They may choose their sleeping positions and locations based on where they are and how they are feeling. If your cat seems to be blissfully curled up in a bowl or a box, it is likely the same as you curled up in your favorite jammies on your favorite chair.
Why Does My Cat Like to Sit in High Places?
Why do so many of our beloved felines like to survey they realm from on high? To answer this question, it’s important to understand that cats are both predator and prey. They are predators to smaller prey. Staying in higher places was most likely a behavior that, for smaller cats, was associated with an increased probability of survival. Staying in a high location provided a cat with a better vantage point to spot prey and predator alike. If a cat goes up into a tree’s branches, she can evade larger mammalian carnivores.Cats can also sleep in higher places with decreased risk of getting hunted or surprised. Cats that hide in trees are also taking advantage of leaves and branches that provide the perfect camouflage to protect the cat from flying predators. Therefore, over time, cats that exhibited this tendency to sit in higher places were more likely to survive and pass along this behavior.
Why Does My Cat Blink Slowly at Me?
When a cat interacts with people and the cat is not threatened by the person, she may look at the person and then perform this same “slow blink.” She then may look away or she may not. If this happens, you can interpret this behavior as your cat not feeling threatened by or fearful of you. It may also be an indication that your cat may be receptive to more interactions with you. If the cat is receptive to more interactions with that person, she will sniff the finger and may try to rub her face on the finger or lower her head for attention. She is comfortable being around you.Some cats will think that this is a way of expressing love, and blinking slowly is to tell you that it loves you.
Why Does My Cat Snore?
Snoring in cats, while not as common as in dogs, is usually caused by some kind of partial obstruction in the upper airway. The low-pitched sound, called stertor, usually results from soft tissue or fluid interfering with the smooth passage of air through the nose or throat.If the snoring isn’t posing a real problem for your cat, nothing more needs to be done. But, if your cat is having difficulty breathing and is trying to compensate through open-mouth breathing or extending his head and neck straight out, get to your veterinarian as soon as possible.
Why Does My Cat Knock Everything Off My Desk?
Part of the appeal may be linked to play-related behavior and the other part may be an expression of exploratory behavior. That’s because, no matter what hits the ground, when we hear a noise, we all invariably come to see what happened. Some cats have learned that they can get our attention through this behavior. Sometimes the louder the bang, the quicker the owner’s response time. Sometimes watching the object fall and chasing after it on the floor is rewarding to the cat all by itself. Anyone who has cats knows they are very adept in using their paws. Watching cats play, you can see them bat at objects, paw at others and sometimes, with a twist of their little paws, hook items and toss them in the air. You know one feline patient who places his paws together to catch the little fake mouse toys that his owner tosses to him. Cats are also curious creatures, highly attracted by rapid movement. One of my cats is an expert fly catcher, while another will do somersaults in the air trying to catch the feather at the end of the fishing-pole toy. Knowing the nature of cats, it is not surprising when you hear people ask why their cats appear to enjoy knocking items off desks, tables, bookshelves, mantles, etc.
Buy some toys for your cat so that you will not be disturbed by the fluffy paws while you are working.
