Listen up Beans!

It has comes to my attention that some of you's do not listen to us kittys very well. So here with the helps of the internets and some studies I have comprised a wee list of what WE are trying to tell you's beans.

You beans use your vocal communication way more than us kittys. We kittys like to use scent, body language, facial expressions and touch as our primary form of "talking". Now we's know that you beans do not understand our language so we tries to vocalize more to let you know our requests demands.

What it boils down to beans, you must watch and listen to us kittys to learn our communication with yous. Each of us kittys are differents but this list may help you beans understands us a bit mores.

Vocals
  • Short meow - this usually means "Hi"
  • multiple meows - we are excited to see you's
  • mid pitch meow - we are asking you for somethings
  • long drawn out mrrrrrrrowwww - we's demands somethings
  • low pitch Mee Rooww - we's complainings
  • high pitch Rooowww - we's are angry or are in pain
  • chatter - we's are excited or fusterated cuz that bird or mouse is not close enoughs to us
  • chirup (a meow and purr) - extra friendly greetings
  • purr - we's invitings you for more attention or pets to be given to us
Body Language
  • Tail straight up means we's happy
  • twitchy tail means we are anxious or exciteds
  • slow blinky eyes means we trust you, we's givings affection like when beans blow a kiss
  • dont stare at us kittys, it makes us uncomfys and it tells us that you are being assertive or aggressive
  • when our ears are back we's alarmed
  • we's have a greeting ritual which is rubbing our head, flank or tail against you beans or another animals
  • we do head butts to show we love you's and that we's friendly
  • when we sniff spot 13 or faces it means we are confirming your identity
  • when our ears are back against our heads it means we are fearful and anxious
