Reading Your Cat’s Body Language

Dogs are typically very easy to read, but cats are notorious for being mysterious. You can usually figure out what a cat is thinking by reading its body language. Understanding this kind of communication from your cat can help you determine things like when she is feeling affectionate or how it is responding to other cats.

A gently wagging tail generally means your cat is content, while a wildly swinging one means your cat is ready to attack. Slightly closed eyes also mean contentment. During cat grooming at Dr. Dave’s, the teams taking care of your cat are adept at reading this body language to ensure your cat is comfortable throughout the experience. Please watch this video for insight into your cat’s body language.
