Cats aren’t ones to pussyfoot around.
They get to the point any way they know how. And when there’s something they need, you’ll be the first to know.
But do you really know what your cat is trying to tell you?
Cats use body language and meows to signal their desires, fears, satisfaction, or displeasure. If you’ve ever lived with a cat, you understand how vocal, or silent, they can be.
The tail alone is extremely expressive. Whether held high, flicking around, wagging softly, fluffed up or wrapped around, the orientation of a cat’s tale can tell us a great number of things.
They may not speak the same language as us humans, but it’s not too hard to tell what cats want when they want it. Or is it?
Test your skills in cat communication in our quiz below and share your results with your friends to see who’s a better judge of these curious purr-sonalities!
