Cat Language

Cat Language

Cats normally greet people or announce their presence using a short sound.

Lengthy meowing indicates that your cat is very glad to see you. This occurs if you are away from home for a long time.

A medium- length meow might be a request (for water or food).

A long "mirrrrrrrrrrrrr-meowwwwwww" is a more insistent request or demand.

A low meow is a complaint, indication of dissatisfaction, or a readiness to fight.

A loud low sound often indicates an urgent demand (e.g. food)

A purring or vibrating sound indicates a desire for closer contact or attention. Cats purr for various reasons, but most often they do it when they are happy.

I love all animals but cats in particular!
