Cats See Us As Their Equals

If you have a cat, you might think of yourself as its owner and caretaker but your whiskered #friend sees you as a member of the same species only larger and harmless, according to the new book "Cat Sense" of #English biologist John Bradshaw.

 

John Bradshaw, who has been studying cats for over 30 years, reveals interesting facts which do explain some daily behaviours cat-owners may have some trouble understanding. Since cats aren't bred for a specific task (unlike dogs or horses) they have kept much more of their wild traits; therefore, their interactions with #humans come from their own #natural instinct rather than human-training.

 

When a #cat rubs himself against its owner or bed, it is repeating the same type of #behaviour it would have with its mother to keep the mother's milk flowing. When it rubs himself against your leg or hand it is a clear sign that it is treating you as a fellow cat and is showing its affection for you!

 

When you find a dead rat or bird inside your house it is not because the cat wants to feed you! Before becoming 'domesticated', cats had to find a safe place to eat their prey. However, as they’ve got used to cat food, they no longer appreciate what they kill and end up leaving them on the carpet...
