The Meaning Behind 14 Strangest Cat Behaviors | Jaw-Dropping Facts about Cats

In this video, we will talk about 14 strange things cats do and explain the meaning behind them.

Begging for food but not eating it
Your cat may beg for food, give it some sniffs and walk away. This can indicate your cat’s desire for attention and love. Recent studies from University of Vienna have shown that cats associate food with affection. To cats, feeding them means loving them. So if your cat needs some attention or love, they just ask for some snacks.
Why cats sudden jump around
Does your cat suddenly run around the house and then suddenly stop?
This behavior is often due to pent-up energy that suddenly overflows.
Cats are natural predators, and domestic cats retain this instinct to a certain extent. At times, they will feel the desire to hunt and practice their natural instincts.
Why cats lick you
Cats may lick you because they may want to show you affection and love. They may even want to groom you.
But when a cat licks you or themselves excessively, it is often a sign of stress or anxiety.
In cats, licking is also a way of marking territory. Your cat wants the other cats or animals to know that this is her area.
Why cats bury their poop
You may associate a cat’s burying feces behavior to cleanness, but the reasons are more complex than that.
In the wild, cats cover their feces to eliminate odors and prevent attracting the attention of predators.
Just as covering their poop, cats may bury any uneaten food to hide their trail and prevent attracting the attention of predators or potential preys.
Why cats roll over when they see you
If your cat lays on their back and exposes their belly, it’s their way of saying hello to you.
A cat’s stomach is a very sensitive part of their body as this region protects the most vital organs. So if your cat is laying on their back next to you with their belly exposed, it is a sign that your cat trusts you and feels safe around you.
Why cats scratch
Cats scratch to remove the dead outer layer of their claws, or to burn off some energy or stretch their bodies.
cats also scratch to mark their territory by leaving both a visual mark and scent mark.
Why cats ignore you
Cats are very independent creatures. They don’t like to be smothered with affection and they need some personal space or quiet time every now and then.
Arched back
While some people think an arched back indicates aggression, it doesn’t.
A cat who displays this posture is usually frightened or threatened. By arching their back and puffing up, your cat is trying to appear bigger and more threatening to their opponent.
Why cats bite you
Cats may bite to stop unwanted action or behaviors.
Cats also bite to show affection. But only with gentle and more controlled nibbles.
Of course, a cat’s bite can also indicate aggression, but rest assured that you’ll know when your cat bites you out of aggression versus when it gives you a love nibble.
Cat’s biting is also a form of communication to ask for something. If a cat nips you and then tries to lead you to an activity, this could be the reason.
Why your cat sleep on top of you
Cats like temperatures of 20 degrees higher than human’s ideal temperature. So when the ambient temperature is colder than this, your cat is going to look for a nice warm area to maintain their temperature. And your body is good source of heat.
Sleeping on top of a trusted human gives a cat a sense of security, as well as comfort to sleep peacefully.
Cats also sleep on you to show you affection and love!
Why cats’ pupils dilate
By dilating their pupils, cats allow even tiny amounts of light into their eyes so they can see better in the dark. During the day, cats contract their pupils.
Cats also use their eyes as part of a complex body language to communicate their mood and health. If you cat has dilated pupils, your cat could be stressed, anxious, excited or in fear.
Why cats stare at us
If your cat meows while looking at you in the eye, they may just be letting you know they’re hungry.
Cats also stare to show affection. Especially when a cat looks at you with half closed eyelids and slowly blinking.
If they feel scared, stressed out, anxious, cold, depressed, cold, or in pain, they may stare at to seek your support.
Why cats vomit
Cats vomit for a lot of reasons. The main causes range from incorrect diet or eating something inedible (like string), to allergies, infections, urinary tract disease, diabetes or even a sudden change in a cat’s diet
Another reason for a cat’s vomit is hairball.
To avoid the formation of the hairballs, you can brush your cat once a day and add more fiber to their diet.
Some people think it's ok for a cat to vomit once a week, but it's not.
Why Some Cats Hate Belly Rubs
Some cats don’t like belly rubs because their stomach area is the most sensitive part of their body. Their soft underbelly protects their most vital organs.

  • It has been suggested that cats don't JUST sleep on top of you - it is WHERE on top of you they sleep that is important. Many believe that cats are attracted to negative energy and, perhaps, are able to absorb it for their own benefit. It was noted that cats would often lay on top of or next to the part of a human body that is hurt or diseased. There were even reports that cats, laying on top of a human body stricken with cancer, were able to reduce or even heal it. Consequently, a cat sleeping on top of a person's head can indicate that a person might have a brain tumor or Alzheimer's disease. It is also interesting to note that cats pupils contract in accordance with time of the day. Ninjas often used cats to know what time it is to coordinate their actions with others.

  • My cat does this thing where she'll walk by or around me and tap me with her tail, or curl her tail around my leg sometimes once or sometimes several times depending how long I am sitting or standing there. She will often do it after I've just given her a good combing. I tend to think this is similar to head-butting (which my beloved late cat did all the time). Or maybe she's somehow trying to return the grooming favor?
