If your cat could talk
You can become an expert at reading your cat's moods just by observing her face, ears, and eyes. Here’s a look at your cat's language and how to understand it.
Here are some examples of how a cat's face, ears and eyes may indicate her mood:
If your cat raises her head and then lowers it, someone is getting too close to her.
If your cat closes her eyes almost shut, turns her ears to the side, and starts purring, she's feeling pleasure.
If your cat raises her ears, turns them back, and contracts her pupils, this a warning to be careful.
If your cat's pupils widen in spite of the light, she's startled.
If your cat points her ears and opens her eyes wide, she wants to play.
If your cat lays her ears flat back, closes her eyes halfway, and turns her head away, she's showing she doesn't intend to hurt her companion and expects the same consideration.
As you get to know your kitten better, you'll become better at understanding her language - just like a mother comes to understand her baby. And, the closer your cat is to you, the more she'll use her voice.
