Cats Protection video guide to moggy behaviour


Britain’s leading cat charity has created a video guide to moggy behaviour – after a study found many owners struggle to understand their pet. Animal lovers are often at a loss to explain why their cat extends its tail upwards, lies on its back, rubs against them, or even purrs. A confused 76 per cent did not know an upright tail means a moggy is pleased to see them, offering a loving “hello”. And one in three (32 per cent) thought a cat lies on its back when it wants its tummy tickled like a dog. In fact, it actually means they are relaxed and trust you – and want their head rubbed briefly instead. Owners are at risk of being scratched if they abuse this “trust” by touching their pet’s stomach, animal behaviourists at Cats Protection say.
