Tips On Better Human To Cat Communication  

Use a gentle, reassuring tone when addressing cats to come across friendly. But also mimic their noises occasionally to test responses.

Interpret whole body moods through posture, ear angle, eyes and tail positions. Note reactions to understand their unspoken signals.

Capture attention with interesting sounds like crinkling treats bags or pointing lasers before speaking so they listen up.  


Use beloved mealtime sessions for best results getting cats to associate human chatter with something positive.
