The Secrets of Kitty Body Language

Kittens communicate in a very distinct way. Did you know
that every twitch, every purr, every motion actually means
something… at least to your kitten!

The key to building a devoted and caring relationship
between you and your kitten is understanding how kittens

Lets discuss the primary mechanisms a kitten uses to

The eyes truly are the windows to the soul… even when you
consider the souls of kittens. Kittens use their eyes to
tell you what they want.

For example, if a kitten gazes at something for a few
minutes, but then turns away, it is usually an indication
that he recognizes the object or person, but chooses not to
communicate with them for the time being.

If however, a kitten stares at something and holds its gaze
for some time (and also twitches his tail and perhaps
raises its fur) that is a clear indication that he feels

At times the kitten will also make an aggressive meow to
indicate they are ready for combat if necessary.

Reading a kittens tail movements is not only fun its
useful. A cats tail tells a lot of things about whats on
their minds. One of the uses a kitten has for its tail is
to demonstrate self confidence and pride.

Kittens may walk with their tails sticking straight up in
the air, indicating they are having a very proud and
boastful moment.

If on the other hand a kittens tail suddenly puffs out and
looks bushy, and starts shaking it is usually a sign that
something has frightened the kitten. When given this sign,
though your urge may be to pick up your kitten, avoid doing
so immediately. You might startle the kitten and end up
with a harsh scratch.

Small twitches of a kittens tail can also indicate that
your kitten is irritated at something. This can be for a
variety of reasons, including a dirty litter box or lack of
food. Be sure to check out your kittys supplies to make
sure there isnt some small problem you can remedy quickly.

Purring is usually the universal body language sign kittens
give off. For the most part kittens purr when they are
happy, content and satisfied.

Thus, the more your kitty purrs the happier he is. Kittens
love to purr when you hold them, stroke them and even brush
their fur.

Learning to understand your kittens signals can help you
build a long lasting and happy relationship together. If
you take the time to pay attention to your kitten, youll
start picking up on his unique signals quickly and swiftly.

If youre still worried, here are a few pointers that will
ensure you bond with your kitten right off the bat:

  • Trampling Paws – sign of affection or need for attention.
  • Dilated Pupils – indicates fear or threat. Stay back
    initially and try to determine cause of fear.

  • Arched Back – Kitten is attacking, feels threatened.
  • Ears folded forward – Kitten is exploring. Slow Tail
    Flapping Indicates Satisfaction and Joy.
