If you notice that the cat growls, hisses, meows low, ears are pressed to the head, and its tail is lowered or rushes from side to side, then your pet is definitely upset about something. Thus, a fluffy pet with all its appearance shows that it is annoyed.
Let’s turn to zoopsychologists: what purrs don’t like
Cats are creatures with character. They are emotional, tactile, sociable and slightly mischievous. If the animal trusts the owner, he will signal that something is wrong. Let’s talk a little more about each stimulus.
1. Most cats hate grooming procedures
This goes for everything: combing, cleaning ears, trimming nails, contact with water or going to the groomer. According to the cats, they are already beautiful, why this bullying?
In order for the animal to react more gently to all these processes, teach him from an early age. For every calm reaction, don’t forget to pamper your pet with a treat so they have nothing but fond memories.
2. Lack of personal space
When you stare too closely at a cat for no reason, he thinks that’s how you show your superiority. Too active and obsessive petting of the animal, when it is at rest and in a calm state, also infuriates the cat. The reaction can be immediate: you will hear a hissing sound or an attack of scratching paws.
If the fluffy does not spend 24/7 by your side and is looking for a secluded place, do not try to prevent it. Cats do not like excessive attention, sometimes they also need to be alone.
3. Treatment, taking vitamins or medication
Even humans don’t like taking pills, why should cats like that? Often, at the sight of a medicine or a special solution, the animal becomes furious and runs away.
4. Other pets
Cats have long been accustomed to defending their territory, where strangers do not belong. For them, anyone who is not a cohabitant and who is not a relative is a rival and a competitor who wants to obtain toys, food and the attention of the owner.
5. Loud noise and sounds
Cheerful companies, fireworks, thunder and lightning, vacuuming, arguing and shouting of family members, a barking dog or a crying baby make your stuffed animal nervous and anxious. A long stay in this state is not good for the cat – stressful situations lead to health problems. The level of aggression will increase, the cat may become depressed or fall ill.
Purrs are very difficult to bear during a change of residence and take a long time to adapt to a new environment. We also include travel here: cats don’t like to travel in transport.
7. Pungent smells
Cats have a very sensitive sense of smell and there are smells that they can’t stand. At the top of the list are citrus fruits: lime, lemon, orange or tangerine – keep these foods away from your pet.
8. Expired food
Although cats are picky eaters, they can distinguish between stale food and fresh food. Do not put too much food on your pet, divide it into several doses. It is enough for a cat to see a winded dish – he will definitely refuse to eat and will not be in the mood.
Cats can’t stand a dirty litter box. Remember to keep the bowls, kitty litter box and litter box clean. Otherwise, the cat can use the bed, the hallway or your shoes as a new litter box.
10. Animal clothing
Your pet can by all means prevent you from wanting to dress it. He always looks cute, but if the furry one is uncomfortable, it is better not to torment him.
We hope these few points will help you get to know purring better, eliminate irritation and live happily ever after with your pet.
