This month, come along with Fluffy and Fido as they learn how to read Fluffy’s body language. And stay tuned to learn about Fido’s next month!
FLUFFY: (Doesn’t answer, just waves her tail.)
FIDO: Fluffy, I asked you a question. Why won’t you answer me?
FLUFFY: I did answer you. I waved my tail.
FIDO: That’s not an answer!
FLUFFY: Is too! I was using body language.
FIDO: Well, I don’t know your body language.
FLUFFY: Neither do mom and dad. I think we’d better get Pearl and Meryl to tell pet parents how to figure out what we mean when we talk with our bodies.
…And so they did. Here are some common messages your cat is sending with her body.
We hope you enjoyed these tips, and that you learned something, too! We’d love to hear from you, so please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
