Happy Cat Hint # 4: Read Their Body Language
Knowing the body language of a cat is important, not only for keeping it happy, but in protecting yourself as well. A content cat will walk around with its tail straight up or with a slight curve at the end (cane-tail). It will rub up against you, purr and (if you’re really special) give you a slow-blink. These are all signs that your kitty is happy and enjoying life. A scared or angry cat will flatten its ears tight to its head, hiss, growl or puff-up to appear larger. If your cat is exhibiting any of these tell-tale signs, back off and give it some room to cool off and calm down. Pushing the issue may get your scratched or even bitten.
