Cats show happiness through purring, kneading, relaxed body language and upbeat vocalizations.
Scared cats may hide, flatten ears, swell up, hiss, run away or be aggressive. Comfort a frightened cat.
Anxious cats may overgroom, urine mark, avoid litter box, or have dilated pupils. Try calming measures.
Cats display affection by rubbing, head-butting, circling feet, sleeping near you, grooming you, and purring.
After a loss, cats may search for the missing companion, vocalize more, sleep and eat less. Give them comfort.
Ignore new people or pets. Reassure your cat so they don't feel displaced.
Angry cats may bite, scratch, swat, arch their backs, thrash their tails, or act out. Give them space.
