These Common Cat Behaviors May Actually Be An Urgent Sign

Dogs may be known as man's best friend, but they have some close competition. Cats can be just as loyal and loving, albeit in their own way. Kitties certainly aren't easy to understand. Anyone who has ever stared baffled at a blank-faced cat in wonder knows what we mean. They might not be outwardly expressive, but they're definitely trying to communicate with you. In fact, you'll want to be on the lookout for these specific ways that your pet tries to get your attention.

Aloof loafers

Cats can be pretty aloof, so there's nothing unusual about your pet lounging alone and surveying the entire room. But if your pal looks at you and starts slowly blinking, he's giving you an important message.

The slow blink

Slow blinking is a sign of comfort and love. It's a signal that cats use to tell each other everything is OK, so, if you see it, your buddy is feeling pretty good. There are some other ways they communicate, too...


We're all familiar with purring, which is another classic signal that your cat is feeling content. Still, there's something deeper going on when they start revving their engines — a message that you might not be aware of .

They're talking to you

Cats don't purr to communicate with other cats; they only do it for humans. That means your pet is specifically telling you how happy they are. You should also be on the lookout for these other sounds.
