Cat can't talk to us like litthe child do. but they show us in different way, by their body language. Do you want to know what ? Tails : When upright the tail is highly visible and is used to communicate friendliness, contentment, etc.. if the tail also quivering it signals that the cat is pleased or happy to see us. but if the tail is upright and hairs bristlings with angers is a highly visible signal that the cat is enraged!

When the little tip of a cat's tail quivers, watch out. That cat is not happy. Rubbing against things makes the rubbed thing belong to the cat. If the kneading is done with sharp claws, the claws should be trimmed by you or your vet.

Have you heard about what it means when cats "knead" your body parts with their claws? Someone told me it means they are remembering nursing from their mother, a cat's most memorable and comforting moment. If you believe that, it takes away the pain of those sharp claws puncturing your skin. If your cat turns from you and gives you the full back view with his tail straight up, I don't think it's a gesture of friendship. Watch out for flattened ears as well. A cat exhibiting that behaviour is ready to fight.
