Gradually progress to more complex commands.
Respect and get to know their body language. Just like humans, cats communicate and express their emotions, be it fear or trust, through their bodies. The postures they adopt convey an important message. You will find some examples below.
Do you love your cat more than anything, but you don’t know how to tell him? With these simple, daily actions, your feline will quickly understand what it means to you. On the other hand, don’t expect him to jump around your neck, cats are very modest when it comes to showing their emotions!
Most cats love cuddles… but also massages! Indeed, a massage can help soothe your feline while strengthening your bonds. Observe where he likes to be massaged and give it your all! On the other hand, never force him if he doesn’t want to.
If you love your cat and want to show it off then you will find our last piece of advice very, very logical. If you love your cat, then you shouldn’t punish him, you shouldn’t scold him, you shouldn’t yell at him or hit him, or throw water at him when he does something stupid (and don’t listen the different people who tell you to do it). If your cat does something stupid, it will be necessary to use positive reinforcement, that is to say, reward the attitudes you like and do not reward the bad actions. Be firm with a simple “no” or leave the room when you realize your cat is doing something that is not allowed. And yes, taking care of your cat is also knowing how to say no.
Indeed, the cat does not do stupid things to annoy you but to meet its behavioral needs. So when you yell at him, he doesn’t understand why. He only sees you as a mean person who attacks him for no reason.
If despite the months that your cat does not seem to appreciate you more than that, it may be because you are not adequately meeting its needs. He may lack attention, opportunities to play, or on the contrary, he is too much in demand and seeks more peace and quiet.
Keep bringing them together for a few weeks. Do not let the dog interact with the cat without leaving until you are absolutely certain that it will not be aggressive or seek to chase it away. This will only spoil much of the progress made.
Of course, your cat will not understand everything you say to him, but the fact of talking to him will show him that you will be interested in him, and even encourage him to do the same. Thus, you will be able to have real discussions with your hairball!
Cats are animals that need a lot of love and affection to be happy. If we love them and take good care of them, they reciprocate by loving us back. By following this guide, you can establish a beautiful relationship with your feline companion.
If you don’t want him to be bored, spend time with him every day. It’s a good way to relax at the end of the day or to start it in a good mood. And it’s also a great way to tell your cat that you love him, since you choose to be around him as much as possible!
