Understanding Cats’ Behavior While Providing Cat Sitting in Dallas

December 27, 2022

Let’s play a game.

We’ll share a few hints about a creature, and you’ll have to guess what it is.


  • They can jump up to six times their own length.
  • They can walk so quietly that you wouldn’t even hear them coming.
  • They have an additional organ that helps them taste (yes, taste) scent in the air.
  • They spend nearly 1/3rd of their lives sleeping.
  • They can make about a hundred different sounds.
  • They were classified as an ‘invasive alien species’ by The Polish Academy of Science.



You can do it.


Okay, we’ll tell you.

The above-mentioned qualities are of sometimes selfish, other times mysterious, but always adorable cats.

Though these facts about felines are intriguing, their bizarre behavior can be a challenge for those who provide cat sitting in Dallas. But at the same time, it’s essential that you decode what they mean to ensure the kitties are well taken care of.

Fortunately, we’re experts in Meowese.

don’t do too much of it, considering cats can be stubborn; they can go from “come play with me” to “you’re annoying me with your presence, hooman” in seconds.

  1. Licking You or Themselves

If your cat is licking your hair, skin, or earlobes, you should consider yourself lucky. It means they’re bestowing you with affection and love. Although the exact reason felines do this is unknown, it might be because their mother did the same when they were little.

Another reason why cats lick humans is to mark their territory; it’s one of the many ways through which they perform the action, including rubbing, scratching, and, unfortunately, urine spraying.

Moreover, cats lick themselves to clean their fur.

  1. Flicking Tails

Cats flick their tails in so many ways that it warrants an entire blog. However, keep this in mind for now:

  • High Tail: Your cat is feeling happy, confident, and pleasant.
  • Curved Tail: Your kitty wants to play with you.
  • Low Tail: Something’s bothering your cat.
  • Tucked Tail: A tucked tail signals that the feline is nervous or overwhelmed. During this situation, it’s better to stay away from them.
  • Swished Tail: Your kitty has set their mind to something. Keep back and observe what they do next.
  • Whipping Tail: If your cat continuously whips their tail, they’re aggressive and afraid. Now’s not the time to play with them.


  1. Staring Into a Distance (Zoned Out)

Felines see better than humans in plenty of ways; they have a wider field of view and can see better at night.

So, if you find your cat staring into a distance – or as we like to call it, zoned out – that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with them.

Maybe your kitty is looking at something you can’t see. Or perhaps they’re plotting to take over the world.

Either way, you shouldn’t be worried about your cat staring into the abyss. (Unless, of course, it’s the second possibility).

  1. Meowing at Other Animals

If you need further proof that cats are extremely self-centered, let this be it: felines yowl at each other simply because they don’t like two of them in the same place.

In fact, they can get so loud that, sometimes, their meowing sounds like a child crying.

So, those who already have a cat shouldn’t bring another to the house. And if they do, introduce them to each other slowly, depending on how the felines react.

  1. Wiggling Butts

As much as we’d like to see it happen, cats do not wiggle their butts because they’re dancing to the latest Rap song. In most cases, they exhibit the behavior before pouncing on a target.

It turns out there’s a scientific reason behind this: since cats are fond of hunting, wiggling butts allows them to steady their balance, get into position, and check the ground beneath them.

This way, felines gather the strength and agility to jump distances up to 8 feet or 240 centimeters.

It’s Time to Put Your Cat Speaking Skills to the Test

Cats are misunderstood creatures.

All they want from you is to feed them.

And bathe them.

And scratch them.

Basically, kitties want you to be their slaves.

Jokes aside, it’s not that difficult to understand kitty’s behavior. You have to observe them closely and see how they react after you’ve performed a specific action.

That’s precisely what our experts do while providing cat sitting in Dallas.
