    Very educational, but you missed the key element that cats enjoy inflicting pain, as they are all possessed by demons, or perhaps the ARE demons in four-legged form . Other than that, spot on video :)

    My cat seems to enjoy a full-body massage (except for her tail) if it's light & slow, starting at her forehead, under her ears, and along the length of her body. I think she likes it because she occasionally gives me gentle love-bites, and readily comes back for more. I'll gladly take this advise to burn off her energy with active play though!

    "be observant" I can't agree more, cats try to communicate very much. If you are patient and observant your cat will teach you what ever you have to know.

    I have 6 cats now, and have had cats for over 50 years. THE number ONE rule to avoid getting torn up by Fluffy is pay attention to the animal. When he or she tells you it is time to quit, QUIT. Force the issue and he'll getcha. When he lashes his tail, flattens his ears, purrs turn into growls, he gets up and tries to leave............. ALL are signs to back off.

    Whenever my cat was a kitten I would hold her all the time and force affection on her and now she can't stand when I don't pet her.

    Please Please i need help. I dont know what i do wrong or what is wrong with my cat. I had just taken an female cat from some family that was giving her away, i did not ask the reason of why they give her away... i think that it may be expensive to have a cat... but not for all ofc. So i had took her because i like that she is a bit small (maybe young) and very cute. But... for like 24h when i close my hand to the cat, she starts to purr and push her had against my arm like trying o say cuddle please. So i do, but for like 5 seconds after normal cuddle... she starts pushing herself strunger and strunger against my hand. So i try to pull my hand away to dont hurt her. (25 y.o man, maybe dont feel how i touch her and i press to hard) So when i try to pull my hand away... first time she had put her own hand with the claws armed, to my palm and do a soft sweet meow. (that had hurt a bit) than i didnt move my hand (not closer to her not outside from her) so than she gets easy to my hand intending to smell... than she open her mouth slowly and bites me hard as hell (bite to bleed). And imediately after taking my hand away from her she does that SISS what cats do when they are angry. (WHAT THE HELL!) Since than... every time i get close to her... she does that purr and when i try to cuddle her... (not even touching her) She bites me instantly. (ofc bcs i am allarmed, i pull my hand extremly fast out from her strike area and i say NO!) than walk away and came back after 10 minutes, than try again... same stuff "purr than bite". i did that maybe 4 times if not more.. still the same thing... what should i do? Please help before i give her away to adoption... If she is that agresive all time, i cant let her close to my 9 y.o son to bite him. I may get pissed if that happen... and idk next... please please please help help help. i really apreciate any advice. Thanks to all.

    Unless it's an aggressive attack dog, dogs don't need to come with instructions and a warning on how to give them warmth and love... And I'd like to see a cat drag you out of a burning building or save you from drowning.

    Have just been trying to get my girlfriend two cats Sophie and SoLo to relocate in my house with Sadie and my Golden Retriever Pearl. My Golden just gets out of the way and also visits hospitals, so is well trained! Sadie is my seven year old female cat and not happy with two new cats being in the house. My girlfriend's one cat Sophie is not aggressive and SoLo a large male( feral )cat, just hides allot. We are located in Walnut Creek in a large house with a beautiful yard that is safe for all concerned. Sophie has peed on my bed but has a history of doing this in the past.
    Thank you and kindest regards.

    My cat never scratches me, als long I don't overdo whatever it is. If she leaves, she leaves. If she battles me, she wins after some time. If she bites me, I let her bite and loose interest. If she puts out her paws with claws I hold still and she just bites my hand and I stay still and then she licks me and wants to be pet and loved.

    My cat won't play. I have tried many toys he is just not interested unless chicken is involved. But I don't want to give him too many treats. I am worried about him being bored.

    My cat doesn't care. You can literally do almost everything wit her (I would never hurt her so with anything I mean lifting and petting) and she won't care. If you lift her up she'll just go straight in your lap. IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG TIH MY CAT?

    When we got our cat (Rag Doll ) from a shelter Kleo absolutely hated being brushed because no one ever brushed her in there, but since we managed to get out the knots she absolutely loved it. As soon as she hears the brush Kleopatra runs directly to the source of the sound :D

  • Blackfell

    I use the full-body hard pet as a way to get my kitty ready for play, for exactly the reasons Jackson talks about here. It's late at night after I've been at work all day, and I know Luna's in need of hunt/catch/kill, so, time to pump some energy into the little furball and make her want to play. A couple hard pets gets her charged up, then out comes the cat toys. 15 minutes or so later, after a happy murder session, Luna's all tired out.

    Some cats enjoy an aggressive back scratch, some don't.  You need to be able to read a cat..  They have a lot to say if people will listen. I've only got eight at the moment, and they all have something different to say.

    I thought this was a video showing where all cats like to be petted or scratched, but no, this was much better than that. My cat for example loves bellyrubs, which not a lot of cats do, as well as gentle strokes on his paws.
    Already self taught about the "letting your cat pet you" technique! Awesome video.

    Is there a way to convey to a cat that physical interactions are pleasant? I have a cat who doesn't seem to like physical contact at all. She enjoys being out in the open and doesn't hide often (plus she loves being talked too and will even 'talk' back) even when we have guests but she wont's let anyone other then me, my mom, and my brother touch her and we can only touch her when shes half asleep on the couch. Id like to deepen my bond with her and show he its okay to be physically social.

    My cat Maggie is weird. When I wake up and open my door all three of my cats walk in a greet me. But my cat greets me and walks away and apparently at 9:00 AM she doesn't really like being petted. 12:00 PM she hates being petted but loves to chase the laser and play fetch with a crinkly shiny ball i made and at 3:00PM She loves being petted and when I go to sleep my ctas jump onto my bed and sleep on my feet

    I'm currently dealing with my roommate's 2mo old kitten. It's almost always playtime for him. He's a very sweet cat and he loves to cuddle and get belly rubs but, when it's playtime he'll bite and scratch. It's not out of aggression he's just practicing his hunting skills. Unfortunately, he was given away at only 4weeks and didn't have enough sibling bonding time.

    okay i've got a question. my 17 year old cat has always had this habit of going onto counters and desks and stuff and specifically pushing over things we find important. like models and stuff. why does he do this? we have always assumed he is mad about something. like we went camping or the dog got a treat or something. but i don't know for sure!
