I was responding to a discussion about what I would compare myself to, and thought of this discussion . What would you say a house cat's thoughts and emotions are before they strike their prey? Would you say they are uptight and stressed, calm and ready, or detached and unemotional? Please give me reasons to why you think so.

This is a pretty good discussion baby,and I have noticed you always have a knack for coming up with new and different discussions,and I am surprised sometimes at how many discussions you will sit there and type out in one day,and I am not sure if I could say about all cats because I am sure cats are like people they all have different personalities,just like all people have different personalities,but when it comes to our old fat cat Mrs. Missy I think I have a good idea what she is thinking and feeling,I think she is a lazy cat who likes to sleep a lot so she would probably think should I get up or keep sleeping,and she always thinks she is a queen so she probably thinks maybe one of the humans will get it,and I am sure her main emotion is probably annoyance since she does not like being disturbed while she is sleeping,and I think she would be calm and ready because she would wait for the right moment before striking,and she can be quite a pain in the butt,but do not tell her that lol,because she would sass me,I love you with all my heart and soul,have a great day,good luck with all your mylotting especially the new tasks,and Happy Posting.

I am also sure that different cats have different personalities just like humans, but I think they all have a knack for being sassy. Lol. Mrs Missy is a pretty good cat, and you can mostly tell what she is thinking by the looks she gives us. It's kind of scary how similar her looks are to those of humans. When she's annoyed she gives the same eyes as say a human would and when she is calm she gives the same eyes as say a human would. She probably is thinking the things you've listed, but I'm not sure that she always thinks that. I love you.

They will be calm and ready. in order to strike a prey, they should be ready mentally and physically which will increase the accuracy in striking the prey. but i am not sure the exact way as basically this is what i feel if i put myself in it's shoes.

I enjoy your response, and do not worry as I am not asking for an accurate text book response, just an opinion of how you feel a cat, well feels before they attack their prey! I appreciate the response.
