Here are some tips on understanding cat behavior, curbing its aggressive behaviour tendencies and manipulating cat attitudes.

Cat Behavior

There are many problems related with cat's behavior that causes irritation. More knowledge regarding them will enable us to deal with them in a better way.

Excessive Meowing
More often than not meowing is cat's way to get your attention. The meowing may be also be a sign that the cat is in discomfort or has a medical problem. Cats meow as a form of communication, as well. However, most cats meow simply because they are bored and want some human interaction. The solution is to provide the cat with an entertaining environment with more cat toys. Never pay attention to the constant meowing, as this will only encourage the cat to continue and will create an ongoing cat behavior problem.

Cat Biting
Sometimes cat may bite you while you are petting her. This is because is the cat becomes over stimulated during petting, and can't quite figure out how to tell you to stop. Don't panic. Slowly withdraw your hand and move away from the cat. If the cat is in your lap, pull your hands away and allow it to retreat, or stand up and let the cat jump to the floor. Learn to recognize the signals that precede biting: wildly flicking tail, ears laid back, their pupils dilating, or their body tensing. When any of these are noticed, stop touching the animal and allow it to move away on its own.

Chirping Sound
With un-altered females, a chirping type of cat vocalization is a signal she's in heat (ovulating and ready for a mate.) They may also howl mournfully, if they are isolated from males. Another possible reason for a cat's chirping, is if it's excited by the prospect of a kill.

Cat's way of showing Affection
Contrary to the popular perception, cats are not showing affection when they rub against you with the back of their head and the rest of their body. It's just the cat's instinct to mark you with their scent; they are actually claiming you as their territory. The only time a cat is truly showing affection is when they bump you with the front part of their head, known as head bonks, a cat behavior also called "bunting". Some cats also drool while showing affection.

Cat Clawing
Cats often claw furniture or carpets. It's just cat instinct to work their claws and mark their territory. Once a cat claws something their scent is left on that object so they will come back and claw it again. Trim the cat's nails to lessen the damage.
