Conversing with Your Cat – Not What You Say It’s How You Say It

Monday, June 28, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

Cats can very easily interpret voice tones rather than words. I usually speak to my cats in a cheery voice and they usually respond well.  They are constantly sizing up our gestures and syllables to see if we are praising them or are angry at them. Even without words, they pick up our emotions and our intentions. When I act upset, my cats usually keep a distance. They can sense by the vibrations that I’m giving off that something is wrong. Here’s a challenge for you. Without making any gestures, make eye contact with your cat and say in a stern voice, “What a good kitty you are.” “Let me give you a treat.” Then with a smile on your face and a cheery voice say “I hate when you scratch the furniture.” I can bet that your cat will approach you when he hears the happy tone. Even though you’re saying something negative. This will prove that’s it’s not what you say but how you say it!

Remember, your pets count!
