How to Decode Your Cat’s Behavior
Cat Sitting Positions and Behavior Meanings
Just because you and your cat speak different languages doesn’t mean you can’t successfully communicate with each other! Humans and their pet cats can share a special and complex bond, and your pet cat is able to communicate his or her needs to you using certain physical cues. The look in your cat’s eyes, their body language, and their vocalizations all contain vital information—as long as you know what they mean.

Understanding Cat Body Language
Cats are versatile creatures, and they have a lot of different movements! Nevertheless, there are some actions that house cats are liable to do when they’re around you. Although it may not seem like it, they are using their body to tell you something! Here are some of the most common phrases in the feline language.
Rolling on the Floor
If your kitty is rolling back and forth on the floor, she is either submitting to you or inviting you to play. If it’s the latter, you shouldn’t miss it for anything in the world! However, your cat won’t want to play for too long before getting upset and turning your fingers into snack food.
Cats squint when they are happy. If they close their eyes slowly while looking, that shows that they trust you. Do not break their trust.
Sticking a Raised Back in Your Face
Your cat finds tail-sniffing normal, so even if it’s not your cup of tea, it’s your cat’s version of a warm “hello.”

Sleeping While Curled Up
Cats curl themselves up into little balls when they sleep so that they produce and maintain enough body heat to feel warm while they’re sleeping.
Cats would make great bakers since they seem to love alternately pressing their paws against a soft object—usually you! Behaviorists believe this is a leftover trait from when they were kittens, as the kneading would help their mothers produce milk.
Why Do Cats Loaf or Tuck Their Paws Under Them?
Your cat might often tuck their paws under their stomach, making them look like a cuddly and cute loaf of bread. But besides looking cute, what does it mean? Cats do this when they are feeling safe and comfortable—if they’re sitting like this, they probably think that they don’t need to use their claws anytime soon! They also sit in such a way to conserve body heat. If you see your cat sitting like a loaf, it is definitely a good sign!

Cat Tail Language
In addition to looking at your cat’s ears, mouth, nose, and body movement for indicators of how your cat is doing, you can tell a lot about how they are feeling by the movement of their tail. If it’s held high, it means it’s happy, and if it’s low, it means that it’s ready to pounce, so it’s important to know what its tail means—it might be a sign that you should move out of the way!
