The behavior of cats, a great mystery for who is not a cat, but it is perhaps also, at least in part, the beauty of this animal. That making him “unstoppable”, or rather, only when he decides. This is also a classic and anyone who has tried to tell the behavior of cats knows it well. Let’s try it too. Although it’s a bit of a cat and mouse game, and we’re not the cats.
The behavior of cats: reflections and peculiarities of each breed
Assuming that we cannot generalize, as it is impossible to do even with us humans, we take these descriptions of cat behavior a bit like a game, like when you joke about commonplaces between English, French, Italians, Spaniards and Germans. And so on.
Let’s start with the beloved Persian cat, ideal for those who live in an apartment and not only for its elegance and beauty but also because it is a typically calm, silent and peaceful breed. Usually he is kind and affectionate, even with any guests, and if he manages to be the center of attention and the sofa or the room, he is very happy even if he has no problems being alone.
The behavior of Norwegian cats is almost the opposite: they are playful, intelligent but almost irrepressible animals. It is not a question of being disobedient or aggressive but these felines cannot help but hunt. They love company, but that it is active and if we let them play better, especially with fake mice or objects to chase.
The behavior of cats more balanced, or almost, is that of the Chartreux: meek and affectionate, present but not too present, this animal has a discreet attitude and knows not to be inappropriate. For this behavior of Chartreux cats it is perfect for those who live in even small houses and do not want to give up having a cat “between their feet”.
Vivacetto, on the other hand, is the behavior of Siamese cats: they are always ready to shoot, play, chase, ambush. If we don’t give them rope, they don’t get aggressive but, you know how cats behave, they get a little annoyed and give us an eloquent look. With children, however, the Siamese usually get along very well.
Finally, the behavior of European cats is difficult to frame and describe because this is a category that embraces too many different types. Broadly speaking, we can talk about intelligent and affectionate animals, suitable for both apartment and villa or palace life.
The behavior of cats for the territory
The behavior of cats is very possessive towards the territory, almost more than compared to other cats they are in love with or their owners. For this reason, violating feline boundaries can cause aggressive reactions that are not always immediately recognizable. When they feel invaded, the behavior of cats becomes nervous and jealous animals: meowing, repeated hissing, hair bristling, for example.
The possessive behavior of cats for the territory is even more accentuated when they are in an apartment and cannot own hectares as it did in the days of the time. Less square meters, more manned so let’s expect felines very attentive to the threats of alleged enemies who want to evict them. Human or not, the behavior of cats does not change.
The behavior of cats when just happy
There are many feline manifestations that characterize the behavior of cats when they are only happy, among the most typical would also mention from personal experience, their “kneading” as when they were children, or frantic and amused play that suggests how they feel fit and for them. comfortable enough to have a good time. Another behavior of happy cats is to put the tail up, even better if with a small curl at the end or with a wobbly trend. Or the continuous rubbing of the face and body on our legs, filling our pants with hair: classic welcome back home.
Not always welcome, especially if you have trousers to defend, not in the same color as our domestic feline. Classic behavior of happy cats is also the sharp meowing, and not too insistent, or resting with the front paws folded under the chest and drooping eyelids. The purring animal is happy, of course, and it is happy even if it shows itself curious about the environment that surrounds it, wandering calmly with its head held high.
The behavior of cats between males and females
Between males and females, if they are not siblings, the behavior of cats is courting or in any case has to do with mating or falling in love. And it is the female who decides. She is purring, meowing, rubbing and running the game. The behavior of male cats is to propose, there is not much to do: they approach hoping that the female does not pull out the claws but appreciates their way of doing.
We must not rush the stages: the behavior of female cats can become very bad, otherwise, and with decision the hasty will be literally hunted. And then, having the next.
