While cats have been domesticated pets since the days of Cleopatra, there’s still a lot about them that remains a mystery. Like when they just roll over as you approach them, what’s up with that? Actually, when cats lie on their back and expose their bellies, it’s their way of saying “Hello, human!”! But it's not the only message a cat sends when it shows you its cute furry little belly.
Today we're talking about cat behaviors. Why do they expose their belly? Why do they bring you dead animals? Why do they like watching from afar? There are plenty of other things they do that just have you scratching your head in confusion. Let's figure out together!

- Be careful not to invade your cat’s space unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched. Look for other clues like their ears and tail. If their tail is moving back and forth and their ears are set back, this means they’d rather be left alone.
- When a cat weaves through your legs and rubs its head on you, it's called bunting, and it involves a release of pheromones from a cat’s head. Basically, it’s as if they’re leaving their scent on you to make sure other cats know that you belong to them.
- Have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start pressing their little paws into you over and over again? When cats do this sort of bread-kneading motion, it’s actually leftover from their kitten days when they used to nurse.
- Has your cat ever made prolonged eye contact with you while blinking really slowly every few seconds? It’s awkward, I know! But this is actually a way for your cat to show you affection!
- If you find that your cat is watching you from afar but never wants to engage, this could be a sign that they’re anxious or even mad at you.
- Similar to how a dog urinates on things to mark their territory (which cats can do too sometimes, by the way), cats like to scratch furniture to show others what’s theirs.
- If your cat’s teeth are chattering really fast, it doesn’t mean they have the chills. It’s actually related to a natural instinct to hunt.
- Many animal behaviorists believe that your cat shares a successful kill with you as a way of thanking you for your care. Cats also do this in hopes that you’ll see how good they are, and you’ll pay more attention to them!
- Cats seem to love squeezing into small spaces, even though it often looks terribly uncomfortable. They do this because it helps them feel protected and safe.
- Many house cats hold in a lot of energy during the day and since they have nocturnal instincts, they often go nuts in the middle of the night.

I've had some male black/white tuxedo cats named Burt, Ernie, Sammy, and Romeo.
Some female cats I have or had:
Miscy (all-gray, short for Mischief),
Lizzy (gray tabby, short for Elizabeth),
Jasper (female calico).
Other male cats I have or had Simon (black persian),
Morris (Orange tabby),
Shebo (originally named Sheba, until I discovered that she was a he)(all black pudgy little dude).
a lot a cats try to trick you to rub their belly. they know they can do real damage and love it. i had 24 cats at one time and know to leave them alone. now i have 13. they are were dumped in the park behind my house 2008/2015 when the economy went bad. my life was ruined by obama. but i loved all of them.
My little cat, Storm (she's about 10 1/2 months old), does this weird thing that ive just accepted as normal at this point. I'll have my hand out, for example my arm is dangling off the edge of a chair of something, and once she sees my hand, she'll walk over and headbutt my hand. Idk why she does this xD. I just call it 'the headbutt of love', since she usually demands to be petted afterwards
My cat is Rufus. He seems to wash his paws, 1 at a time in the water bowl when he comes inside, then licks the water off. He drinks normally from the bowl.
Also, at 5:39am, every morning he touches his wet nose to my face to wake me so he can go outside. He just turned 2 this April (2019).
Hmmmm... One of my cats will sit in a certain basement window that we have and we'll make this weird meow that sounds like he's in pain but I go down there to find that he's just looking out the window but only one of the weird things that he does.
Our cats are named Dimitry and Galina. And all our cats had the tendency to go into every room when we first got them, and start meowing for a few minutes, walking around to different spots and meow again. Only Dimitry keeps doing it, but only in the hallway. We haven't found any source as to why they do it, but we think it is to get familiar with the lay-out of a room and get comfortable with their surrounding. What we suspect why Dimitry keeps doing it, is to get our attention, especially since he does it often when we are either watching a series, and not talking or when I am sitting behind my desk in my hobby-room and my girlfriend is laying in bed watching Netflix. Anybody know whether our thought process is close or what the actual reason is?
Our cat is usually very aloof during the day. Except when I am on the toilet. Then, she finds me and comes sits next to me when I am there. She is also affectionate when I go to bed and about 3 nites a week, jumps up to sit on me and wait to be petted, while I am reading a book or something. She sleeps with us on the bed most nites too.
I have a ragdoll her name is jack. When my son or myself go out, she waits about 1-2 minutes. She finds her little bear picks it up and walks around the apartment meowing with bear in her mouth. I think she has separation anxiety but it is so darn cute.
My first wife raised a two day old black kitten that was separated from his mother. As she bottle-fed him, he didn't learn to nurse off of his mom. Still, the kneeding instinct was so strong with him (as it is with all cats) that he started running his toes through her hair, over and over again. He did this all through kittenhood and for the rest of his life and it was one of his favorite things to do.
My cat past a couple years ago, but her name was Nibbles because she liked to "nibble" us as a sign of affection and she would sit right down on my chest and I would wake up not being able to breathe! I wonder how she knew where my chest was!
I'm a guy and love cats! My cat notices anything new in the house and explores, even if I relocate something, she's gotta approve it. I'm also more mindful now of anything accidentally falling on the floor, items that she can swallow. Same with household cleaning chemicals. I was refilling my desk stapler with staples and some flew onto the floor. I spent hours with a magnifying glass looking for them, sweeping til I found them! I was afraid they'd get stuck on her paws or mouth. What a relief.
We have six cats that we got trapped into taking and we watched them being born and took care of the mother. We were going to look for good homes for them. Sure we were. Six years later we still have all six. Our Tabby helps me do the dishes after every meal. He stands almost in front of me waiting to be petted while I do the dishes. That was my fault. He's always on the sink whenever I'm there.
My cat tends to get rowdy acting like he is chasing something. Then when he sits his skin and fur pulsate. I think I heard that they do the pulsating because they are in distress or pain... Can you explain these behaviors?
Both my cats dip their paws in water and lick it off rather that just drinking from the bowl. Also they prefer running water so often times they’ll come meowing to me when I’m in the kitchen or bathroom to turn the tap on.
My cat chatters at me. It normally means he wants to play. Though I notice he has made up a word for me when he wants to call me which is part chatter and part meow... strangely it kinda sounds like my actual name he is saying.
We actually have a super affectionate cat. She's one of the only cats that I've ever seen comes when you call her over. She never bites or scratches, only play bites very softly or sometimes when I'm making a sandwich she will put her paw on my hand and bring it towards her lol
I had my cat since he was a very small kitten and have always been very affectionate with him. We also live in a very "vocal" house with much shouting and cheering. So my cat is very comfortable with touching for long periods of time, has never lashed out at people and LOVES to meow at everyone lol
My cats loves dried chilli smell and also white pepper smell.. Thell open my kitchen kabinet to find it without our knowing and then start to bite it bring it in a so called safe place for them and constantly rubbing it against their head XDXD
