Do most of you really know what your cat wants?
Its been over 2years and I have just realised I still do not really understand what ET wants sometimes. Am I dumb or what? or is it normal? Do you really know from their meows and body language, what your kitties wanted or what their moods are?
Really, I think I am still clueless. Other than when he meows and rub during or nearing meal time/grooming time, otherwise mostly, its just guess work. Whenever he rub my leg or furniture vigorously (about meal time), I know he's hungry, at other timing, I seriously do not know what he wants. I can only guess. Till now, I still do not know the meanings of his different meowing sounds.
He hardly circles me, but today,he circled around my legs, 2 rounds then lie down, then got up circled 2 more rounds, lie down and then a 3rd time, circled 2 more rounds and lie down. It wasn't even near meal time. I took out da-bird, but he wasn't keen in playing. So, I started doing carrier training, he was so happy getting his baked chicken. I thought that was it. After the session, he followed me round the house again, this time, I groomed him. He was happy again to get his greenies. Then I thought, oh, "is that what you wanted? your greenies" and then shortly after, he started coming to me again and meowing softly and when I ignored him, he went back to his room. He's been pretty attention seeking lately and most times, he was prompting for playtime lasting more than 30-45mins, 3-4X a day.
Whenever hubby started singing to ET, he will lead hubby back to his own room, then flop and show his belly. Or whenever ET is in his own room resting on the floor, hubby singed to him, he will turn around, lie on his back and show belly. What does that mean? hubby asked and I really don't know cos ET had always been afraid of hubby.
Is 2 years long enough or not long enough to understand cats at all? He's my 1st kitty though.
