Talking to Your Cat is a Part of Bonding

ownertakingCommunicating with your cat isn’t an easy trick you can do to impress your dinner guests. It’s an important part of training your cat and reinforcing your bond with her. Teach her simple words like “no” or “down.” This will make her a better pet. Words like “Treats” and “dinner” will help her associate with something pleasurable. Did you know that cats rarely converse with other cats? They reserve their “meows” to humans. Feline language is a complex. It is a combination of f facial expressions, tail position, ear position and other forms of body language in addition to scent and sound. Cats learn to make demands of us by observing which of their sounds cause human responses. My cats do respond to certain words and even understand some sentences. When I say “time to go to work” to my cat Molly, immediately gets up off the couch and follows me to the door. If I say “snack time” to my other cat Millie, she runs for her dish. Cats understand much more than we give them credit for.
Remember, pets are family!
