Meow! What Is Your Cat Trying To Tell You?

"If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much." – Mark Twain.

Cats are mysterious and peculiar, which is why it's often rather challenging to figure out what’s going through their smart little heads. Most of the time, cats communicate their feelings to us through body language. On some occasions, however, cats let us in on their world by directly talking to us too. But, when your kitty meows, chirps, purrs or yowls, do you really know what they're trying to tell you? To help you out, here is your crash course in Cat!

How To Train A Cat

One of the most remarkable feline characteristics must be their notorious independence. Cats know what they want, when they want it and how to get it. And we admire them for this! Their canine rivals, on the other side, enjoy a much better reputation in regard to their trainability. They show off with lots of pawesome tricks and are often trained for high profile jobs too, such as looking for illegal goods or helping impaired people.
