5 signs of an unhappy cat


Our cats support us and build us a smile. We want to do our best for them, but since they don’t speak exactly the same language as us, it is sometimes difficult to say if they are really happy. Here are some tips to assist you “talk cat” and check the mental state of a cat in your life.

  1. Cats that just hang out:
    That seems normal, doesn’t it? Well, not exactly. Cats in a house can be bored. If your cat is just lying there, he may be under-stimulated. You might think he’s just lazy, but if you could ask him, he could explain that he gave up and just accepted his boredom. Bored cats are inactive and might become rotund. They are at risk for diseases such as diabetes and joint problems. Make sure your cat is active and entertained. Of course, they slow down as they age, but you should always notify your veterinarian if you notice sudden or dramatic changes in your behavior.
  2. ‘Fraidy Cat?
    Some cats are at greater risk of anxiety. Such cats tend to grasp things at intervals the atmosphere as threatening. These are the cats that hide when strangers are around or urinate outside the box when they see strangers outside. If you have an anxious cat, it is a good idea to cover windows with strange cats and provide your cat with a safe place to retreat in case of agitation. It is not fun to live in fear and anxiety is very real for an anxious cat.
  3. For Crying Out Loud!
    If your cat is constantly crying for food, he may be looking for attention. People joke about cats crying for food, even if there is still some in the bowl. We laugh that cats may want better food, but what she really wants is YOU. Instead of feeding her, try to caress or caress her, or just interact. You are your cat’s main pressure and he needs time from you to stay satisfied.
  4. Covering the Basics:
    Happy cats eat, drink, sleep and play. There will be some individual variations, but satisfied and healthy cats meet their own simple needs. If your cat does not eat, he may tell you that he is not satisfied with his diet. Cats have evolved to look for variety in their diet to give them a better chance of meeting their specific nutritional needs. Of course, a cat with changes in appetite should always be evaluated by a veterinarian in case the change is due to a medical condition.
  5. Tune In – Silence Speaks:
    Your cat’s body tells you things if you look and learn. If your cat beats his tail and puts his ears down, he is not comfortable and relaxed. These gestures may be signs of playful combat, but the cat must relax after playing. If you notice that your cat seems tense and nervous more than occasionally, it may be useful to assess your environment from your cat’s point of view. Make sure that four-legged residents have access to the necessary resources and that there is peace in your home.

Remember that healthy cats are happy cats, so don’t forget that all cats should be examined by a veterinarian at least once a year. Preventive care should be adapted to their individual needs and lifestyle. There is no age or situation where a cat does not need preventive care, no matter what you have heard.
