Cats are amazing companions but sometimes their behavior can leave a person completely confused, wondering what’s going on in their minds.
We have broken down some of the strangest cat behaviors for you so that you can better understand your furry best friend, hopefully, these 10 explanations will help you to find out why they do the things they do.
7) Rubbing: as a cat owner one of the things you would notice the most is how they rub up against you with their head this isn’t unusual behavior at all this is your cat’s way of saying hello to you.
6) knock it off; when your cat knocks things over and insists on giving you a fright this is completely normal because cats feel their surroundings with their paws.
5) Chewing on plastic, if your cat is chewing on plastic blankets furniture or other things, they may have pica, cats often get pica from anxiety or disorders in their gut because sometimes cats will chew on items that are not food as a way to calm their nerves and deal with pent-up anxiety.
4) Rolling around on their back leaves. If your cat is doing this in front of you, you should feel honored it means they feel relaxed and safe in your company, a roll can also mean that your cat wants to play with you.
3) Presenting their behind when your cat is presenting its tail and butt to your face it means that it feels secure, it is part of cat talk and greeting.
2) Not covering their poop; cats dig a hole when they need to poop when they are done they cover it up to hide their scent from predators sometimes it can mean that they are comfortable and that you will protect them but it can be an indication of a medical problem if your cat isn’t covering their poop, it is best to take them to the vet to eliminate the possibility of a paw injury or urinary tract infection.
1) Cramming into tiny places; cats choose to cram themselves into the tiniest spots such as cardboard box or a drawer in your cupboard, so why do they do it, cats were domesticated the small spaces make them feel safe and secure sleeping in an open area sprawled out would make them an ideal target for predators if they were still outside and in the wild, their instinct is to hide in a small space or hidden area making it difficult for natural predators to find them.
