WAYS TO DECIPHER YOUR CAT’S STARE
You cat is hungry
You cat is hungry, but does not like the food you gave her
Your cat is sure the food she wants is on your plate-share!
If she keeps at you, eventually you will pick out the correct food
The food in her dish is too old, too dry, too wet
The food dish is empty
The water in her dish is too cold
The water is too hot
The water is too old
The food dish is way over there..it should be in front of her
You are eating when she isn’t
You are sitting in her chair
You are using her pillow
You are siiting on her part of the couch
You are not sitting on the couch ..lap needed!
You want to sleep where she wants to sleep
Hello! Time to lick, rub chin against human
You are not paying enough attention to her
She wants to sit on your lap
She wants you to give up the afghan
You are too quiet…what are you doing?
You are too noisy..she wants to sleep
She is annoyed with you
You must unblock her escape
No, you are not getting up you are staying put
Cat and human must stay in the same room
Only the cat knows…
