Chattering cats

Sometimes our cats do some of the strangest things and for good reason. There is one cat behavior that even has the veterinarians puzzled. It’s called chattering.  This sounds like chirping and using occurs when an indoor cat is looking at birds from the window. They see birds that they can’t possibly reach.  Many animal behaviorists suspect that a chattering cat is anticipating a killing bite so its jaw starts moving by reflex. This is similar to a dog who drools when he sees food. Another theory is that cats take out their frustration when they can’t reach their prey. No one know for sure so chattering may always one mystery of feline ownership.

Remember, your pets count!
