Ask Dr Jo: Understanding your cat’s body language

Apr 02, 2019

Have you ever wondered what your cat is thinking? Cat’s body language may give it away. Cats use a variety of signals like body posture, facial expressions, and vocalisations to convey their message and avoid unwelcome confrontations.

For some of us, cat communication and behaviour can feel like a foreign language. We sat down with animal behaviourist Dr. Jo Righetti to find the answers that help you interpret your cat’s cues.

By understanding your cats postures, you can deepen the bonds of affection, as well as prevent misunderstandings.
