Don’t Pet Me Anymore!

Friday, March 22, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

You’re sitting comfortable on the couch with your cat on your lap. You hear his gentle purrs as you pet him. All is well right? Maybe for now, but in an instant, your cat jumps up and tries to bite you. What he is telling you is that he’s had enough and doesn’t want to be pet anymore. Before this happens, your cats tail will begin to twitch.  His ears will turn back or flick back and forth. That’s your cue to stop petting him.  Because cats are predators, attacking is the release cats have when stimulation is overwhelming. This occurs even if the stimulation is pleasurable.  The trick is to recognize the signal and stop immediately. With practice, you’ll be able to tell just when your cat has had enough!

Remember, your pets count!
