Surely, you’ve been emotionally manipulated or just brought to a puddle of “awww” from the cuteness of seeing your dog with that slight squint, looking straight at you. When your dog squints or blinks, it usually means he’s looking to get your attention in order to spend some quality time with you.
If your dog starts doing this often, maybe you’re spending too much time apart and you need to make some more time for your fluffy friend.
Growling Birds Are a Thing
Apparently, growling is not exclusive to canines and felines. Some bird species use this vocal practice too. And similarly to cats and dogs, when birds do it, it is meant to signal aggression.
When you hear your bird growl, don't try to pick it up or touch it. Instead of trying to comfort it, just take a look around, try to detect what it is that could be bothering it, and eliminate whatever it is.
Cats Ghosting You
Felines are fiercely independent creatures. Sure, they love to cuddle up with their owners and have their heads scratched, but they also need some alone time to recharge. Don't we all? That's why there's no need to worry if you haven't seen your beloved kitty in a few days.
Your cat is doing what comes naturally to it. Venturing into the world as a solo explorer, discovering new sights and smells. It is also a way for your cat to get some space and quiet especially if your home is busy and loud. After a few days, your kitty will suddenly reappear, probably at its food bowl.
Wiggle That Head
Have you noticed the way your snake's head wiggles every once in a while? Especially when you feed it? That's perfectly normal snake behavior, just something it does when smelling something interesting.
That being said, if the wiggles are getting intense, you should contact your vet, as this might be an indicator of extreme stress or even a neurological problem (spider morphs of pythons are usually more susceptible to it).
Why Your Dog Paces Back and Forth
If your dog paces back and forth, this can be for a number of reasons. Your dog may be bored, nervous, or excited. Like humans, they also pace around the room. If your dog is pacing around you in circles, it can be a sign that they want to play with you. They want to know whether you are open to playing.
When two dogs meet, it’s common that they will chase each other. This isn’t something threatening or something to fear, it’s just their way of playing.
