Adorable Happy Cat Quirks
September 1, 2022
September is Happy Cat Month! Kitties are always cute, but they’re particularly lovable when they’re feeling cheerful and frisky. Actually, Fluffy has a few really curious quirks that come out when she’s feeling happy. A local Kerrville TX vet lists some of them below.

Purrs

First and foremost, we have what may be Fluffy’s most adorable quirk ever: the purr. While no one is entirely sure why cats vibrate with happiness, but this likely came about because as a way for mamas and kittens to communicate. Kitties can’t meow when nursing, but they can purr to let their moms know that all is well.

Zoomies

Does your kitty sometimes race from one end of the house to the other, for nor reason you can see? Having Fluffy pounce on your toes when you’re trying to sleep may not be the best part of being owned by a cat. However, it’s a good indication that your feline friend is feeling pretty content.

Blinks

Did you know that a slow blink is one of Fluffy’s ways of showing affection. If your furball sometimes looks at you with that smug, self-satisfied expression, and then blinks, she’s showing affection.

Vocalization

Kitties have a pretty wide range of noises. In fact, our feline overlords can make over 100 different sounds! You may notice that your furry friend sounds different according to her mood. Fluffy may yell at you when you’re late for her breakfast, but make a chirpy sound when she wants to play.

Helping

Does your kitty sometimes try to lend a helping hand when you are changing sheets, wrapping gifts, or doing laundry? Fluffy may not be quite as helpful as she thinks, but this cute habit is still bound to put a smile on your face.

Playfulness

Cats are extra adorable when they’re feeling zoomy. Fluffy may race around after her favorite toy, pounce on a bottlecap, or even attack your shoelaces. Those adorable run/jump/pounce//roll combinations never stop making us smile!

Stalking

Kitties like to keep a close eye on their humans. Don’t be surprised if your nosy little pet follows you into the bathroom! Do you have questions about your pet’s health or care? Contact us, your Kerrville TX animal clinic, today!
