Your cat’s purr can express a lot. If you’re petting him and he purrs, emitting a sound somewhere between deep and soft, it’s a sign of love. He is comfortable with you and this is his way of showing it.
This is perhaps the most complicated sign to perceive, since cats raise their tails showing alertness and nervousness. But in case they brush against you and raise it at the same time, slightly twisting its tip, it is a symbol of affection for you.
If you feel their tender nibbles, without exerting any pressure, it is that they are playing with you and, therefore, they love you, giving you all the confidence. However, if those nibbles are forceful, it may be for other reasons such as he feels intimidated, has discomfort or simply wants to play or does not want any more caresses at that moment.
How do cats say I love you? This is an undoubted gesture. Placing himself on his belly is a huge show of affection. He exposes himself to you, at the same time that he asks for a caress. Will you resist to so much tenderness?
What it means to call a woman a cat
It is not always easy or quick to understand what a cat means when it relates to humans or other animals. Feline communication is often subtle, usually more complex to decipher than the body language of dogs, which are more direct.
The animal’s facial expression provides a lot of information, but also its behavior, or even the shape of its tail. An example: a cat that approaches us, that looks for us, that even rubs against us, is a cat that is calm and wants to interact.
There are also intermediate states of mind, such as when they keep their tail straight, and move only the tip. In this case, say the experts consulted, the best thing to do is to let him “smell you because little by little he is losing his fear”.
You can detect when a cat is hungry and wants to eat: its meow is clean, its body is relaxed and its pupils are vertical, looking at the person who can feed it. They strive for attention and usually succeed with ease.
What it means to say cat to a man
The purpose of this topic is to rescue the innumerable amount of “translations” that we have been accumulating in the conversations we have on the Sofa and that have been lost in the vortex of the topics.
Little by little we will write down those words or phrases that change a lot of meaning from one country to another, even though in general terms we speak Spanish and we mistakenly believe that the words mean the same from one country to another (which should be so, but we humans are kind of weird, hehehe).
Here in Argentina they call women climbers “gatas”, but not of walls precisely, but show business women who go from man to man looking for the one that best suits them monetarily, to put it in a nutshell.
I don’t know how I forgot the most Chilean word of all and one that foreigners find very funny: ALTIRO. It means now, supposedly in the time it takes for a bullet or shot to travel. It does NOT mean that you will do something immediately. Typically teenagers when asked to make their bed or set the table, respond “altiro, mama” and you will have to repeat it a dozen times to get them to do it. It’s similar to the Mexican ahorita.
When a man is a cat
If you live with a cat or cat lady, there’s a good chance you’ve woken up among her stuffed mice, toys she’s painstakingly brought to bed during the night. Or maybe your cat breaks into your telework day to leave her favorite toy on your feet (loud meowing included), or you’ve found the ball she loves to chase inside your shoe.
There are different theories to explain why house cats bring us toys or “gifts”. Most likely your cat does it because (in her eyes) she brings you food, just as she would do with her kittens. There is also the theory that cats like to eat in a safe and different place from where they have obtained their prey (in the case of your house feline, her toy).
When she moves her toys around the house, or leaves them for you at 2:00 a.m. on the bed, your cat may simply be responding to her natural instinct to eat in a safe place. Hunting is a completely natural behavior for cats.
