Secrets of Kitty Body Language
Kittens communicate in a very distinct way. Did you know that every twitch, every purr, every motion actually means something... at least to your kitten!
The key to building a devoted and caring relationship between you and your kitten is understanding how kittens communicate
Lets discuss the primary mechanisms a kitten uses to communicate.
The eyes truly are the windows to the soul... even when you consider the souls of kittens. Kittens use their eyes to tell you what they want.
For example, if a kitten gazes at something for a few minutes, but then turns away, it is usually an indication that he recognizes the object or person, but chooses not to communicate with them for the time being.
If however, a kitten stares at something and holds its gaze for some time (and also twitches his tail and perhaps raises its fur) that is a clear indication that he feels threatened.
At times the kitten will also make an aggressive meow to indicate they are ready for combat if necessary.
Reading a kittens tail movements is not only fun its useful. A cats tail tells a lot of things about whats on their minds. One of the uses a kitten has for its tail is to demonstrate self confidence and pride.
Kittens may walk with their tails sticking straight up in the air, indicating they are having a very proud and boastful moment.
If on the other hand a kittens tail suddenly puffs out and looks bushy, and starts shaking it is usually a sign that something has frightened the kitten. When given this sign, though your urge may be to pick up your kitten, avoid doing so immediately. You might startle the kitten and end up with a harsh scratch.
Small twitches of a kittens tail can also indicate that your kitten is irritated at something. This can be for a variety of reasons, including a dirty litter box or lack of food. Be sure to check out your kittys supplies to make sure there isnt some small problem you can remedy quickly.
Purring is usually the universal body language sign kittens give off. For the most part kittens purr when they are happy, content and satisfied.
Thus, the more your kitty purrs the happier he is. Kittens love to purr when you hold them, stroke them and even brush their fur.
Learning to understand your kittens signals can help you build a long lasting and happy relationship together. If you take the time to pay attention to your kitten, youll start picking up on his unique signals quickly and swiftly.
If youre still worried, here are a few pointers that will ensure you bond with your kitten right off the bat:
* Trampling Paws - sign of affection or need for attention.
* Dilated Pupils - indicates fear or threat. Stay back initially and try to determine cause of fear.
* Arched Back - Kitten is attacking, feels threatened.
* Ears folded forward - Kitten is exploring. Slow Tail Flapping Indicates Satisfaction and Joy.
