We can sometimes observe our feline and have this impression of being connected with them in a look. However, it also happens that we do not feel at all understood by him. Indeed, like us, it can have their head in the air or on the contrary be fully aware of the surrounding situations. Here is some information to better understand what the cat may think.
An active brain
Cat lovers know it: they are remarkable and very intelligent animals. Although various studies have been carried out, they do not yet allow us to know exactly what our cat may be thinking. However, the cognitive abilities of this animal are very real. It has a very active brain. By this we mean that it is aware of being, but does not situate himself as precisely as we do in his environment and does not have the same thought paths.
The question of thinking in cats can be resolved thanks to several hypotheses relating to primary needs. Food, reproduction, survival and socialization are among the main areas of reflection. Although we cannot exactly say that the animal thinks about what it is going to eat in the evening, it is able to learn and develop its behavior in order to obtain what it desires. In addition, it is also subsequently able to claim and have conscious attitudes.
By observing them, we can see that they are also guided by their instincts. Indeed, their thoughts are not as established as ours. However, they are still very real in order to deal with certain situations. Reproduction remains very instinctive, like social interactions between cats. They will generally act according to the surrounding reactions when they are in the presence of congeners or when they have to defend a territory.
Furthermore, we cannot rule out the fact that the cat may think of sleeping, staying on guard or even going to its litter box (or outside) to do its business. Nevertheless, we cannot assure that it thinks in the long term. Not having the same sense of time as humans, it probably does not think about their day tomorrow as one might, but rather has immediate thoughts.
Observations and Inferences
The main solution remains to spend a lot of time with your cat in order to understand it. Indeed, by taking the time to observe your animal, you develop a connection and a bond with it. Over the years, the cat develops habits and also learns different behaviors. Thanks to this, it can maintain a reflection on several problems concerning them (food, interactions, reproduction, etc.).
Although we can not really know what the cat may be thinking, we can remain observant of the different attitudes adopted. If you observe a behavioral problem in your feline, do not hesitate to talk to the veterinarian. At the same time, it is also possible to call on a behaviorist in order to be informed about the behavior of your animal. Finally, animal communication can also direct you to the different thoughts and feelings of your beloved tomcat.
