Everyone has heard of finicky cats. And some cats make clear their gustatory preferences by covering up the food bowl.
If your cat is covering its food after eating some of it, it may be an instinctive behavior as wild felines cache their food to keep it safe from others. Your kitten or cat may scratch around its food bowl after eating or even use shredded paper to cover it up.
All Night Long
Some cats seem to sleep all day and play all night. While this behavior is normal, it can be disruptive to everyone else who is trying to get a good night’s sleep.
If your cat is too active at night, make sure they have interactive toys to play with during the day. Rotate their toys to keep them new and exciting. You can also offer your cat a small meal before bedtime to help make them sleepy.
Squirming on the Floor
Does your cat roll around and squirm on the floor as you watch in amazement? Is it under the influence of catnip, or is something else going on?
When your cat rolls over and squirms it typically signals that your cat feels safe and maybe wants some attention from you. They may be feeling very playful and your cat may also be marking the area with their scent this way, claiming your space as its own.
Is your cat playing E.T. and trying to phone home? If it is interrupting your time on the phone, at the keyboard, or when reading, your cat is jealous of you giving attention to these objects rather than to your fur baby.
The solution is to give your cat more one-on-one time as well as interactive toys to keep it stimulated.
Cats can be so squeaky clean and graceful that when they fart, we often tend to laugh at such unexpected behavior from our fastidious felines.
Though sometimes comedic, cutting cheese is a behavior that you may need to have some concern about if it becomes a chronic problem. Cats can have flatulence for a variety of reasons, from anxiety to allergies. Yes, it's normal for your furry felines to fart but if they seem to be passing gas more than usual you might want to check with your local veterinarian.
