Absolute Warning Signs Your Cat Is CRYING For Help!
If dogs are manipulative, cats are devious masterminds, quietly purring in their little heads as they’ve already made us do whatever they want before we even know what happened. But do you know what their various vocalizations mean? Let’s explore them.
It turns out that cats are actually pretty awful at asking for help in an easily understandable manner. The reason for this is extremely on-brand, though: Cats aren’t really into the whole “calling for help” thing, to a point where they don’t really have an easy expression for it in their language kit.
Interestingly enough, the closest thing they have for it is purring, of all things. Most people think that purring is solely a cat’s “happy sound,” but in reality, it has layers upon layers. When your cat is purring, it’s essentially telling you that it’d prefer you stay put. Sure, it can be a sign that kitty is as happy as it’s ever been — but, according to University of Georgia Professor of Veterinary Behavior Sharon Crowell-Davis, it could also mean that it’s asking you to stick around because it’s injured or feels sick.
