Cats can be difficult to understand. The way cats communicate is quite subtle. But they have a lot of ways of telling you how they’re feeling and what they need. Cats communicate using:
  • Tone of voice (chirps, meows, groans, and growls)
  • Eye contact and blinking
  • Posture and body language:
    • Position of ears
    • Tail position and motion

This blog focuses on cat body language. Specifically, how your cat’s ears, body, and tail react when your cat is happy/excited, interested/alert, scared/anxious, or aggressive/agitated.

All cats are different. Your cat may have other ways of communicating with you. The above table describes basic cat body language. Remember when meeting a new cat to be on the lookout for behaviour in the last 2 columns.

Tail Positions

The tail positions might be hard to visualize. The below graphic shows what your cat is trying to tell you with his tail.
