Cats are a total terrible owner. Have you ever tried to win a staring contest with a cat? Tried to be the operative word – it is impossible. And have you ever wondered why cats are scared? Is there a difference between why cats look versus humans. Why do they look at other cats? Not a surprise – here is some insight into the catnip.
Why do cats fear other cats?
Cats are territorial by nature and generally do not like a rival cat walking on their grounds. Since cats communicate primarily using body language, a cat roaming over another cat is a way of showing aggression to the dominant kitty. When one cat eyes him to the other cat, they both stop whatever they are doing and connect with the sight. If this cat stare does not adequately fulfill the objective of the dominant person, then swatting, wrestling and perhaps an out-of-cat fight is next.
Cats are visual hunters and their ability to stare without a regular nap helps them keep a close eye on their prey. Unlike our humans who often blink to keep our eyes lubricated, cats can keep a steady eye for some time before blinking. This is why it is impossible to win an acting competition with a cat.
How to avoid cat bites in your home
If you are adding a new cat to your home, it is important to take steps to avoid – or at least reduce – the aggression that can come from the kitty. Here are some steps to take when introducing cats – and cut back on any aggressive cat-starring events:
- Introduce them slowly. Do not keep both cats together in the same room and expect them to become fast friends.
- Share fragrances between two cats. This can be done by trading blankets or toys so that each kitty can be used to smell the other.
- Initially limit the new cat to a closed room with your cat, water and litter box.
- A good way to slowly introduce cats is to feed them on either side of the door, with food bowls moving closer and closer to the door. Soon, they will be eating with a slight barrier between them.
- Ensure that all initial contact is monitored.
Why do humans keep an eye on cats?
The cats with whom we share our lives are instinctively interested in our activities – especially if they are said to be of some benefit as a result of the activities. When we are close to food, we are all at the end of the cat business. Our cats watch our every move impatiently, and if we take a slight step towards the kitchen – even if it is to pour a cup of coffee – they are all over us.
Dr. Kathryn Prime says, “Obviously cats are naturally attuned to non-verbal communication. Maybe using your presence might help her choose how she should respond to something, and Also sharing how she feels about it. Her eyes are reading your signs and her body language is telling you anything. She wants to make sure You are looking at him in return because you share a family group bond. Your shared form can confirm your bond and assure the social stability of your group. If you are calm, he is calm. If you look sideways, she will too. “
Our kitties love us and sometimes look at us with such affection in their eyes. If you see your cat’s eyes meeting you, give him a slow nap “I love you” and enjoy the bonding moments.
