Top 5 Questions About Cats From Cat Owners
Want to know more about cats? Do you know that cats think we're clumsy? Since not many cats trip over people, but we trip over cats. Below we will show you the top 5 questions most cat owners ask.
1. Why might a cat yowl when it's alone in a room?
Cats learn well how their owners will react when they make particular noises. So if your cat thinks, 'I want to get my owner from the other room,' it works to vocalize. They use straightforward learning.

2. Why do some cats treat human members of the household differently?
Why not? Cats are much smarter than we think of: They learn what works with what person. They know if one member of the family is prone to get up at 3 a.m. and give them some treats.

3. Why do cats knead us?
Because they are using behavior that they would use toward their mother—all the behavior they show toward us is somehow derived from the mother-kitten relationship. The kitten learns to raise its tail, rub on its mother, and knead and purr. Grooming is what mothers do back to kittens. And there aren't many behaviors—maybe half a dozen.

4. Can we train cats?
Yes. Cats can learn what they're not supposed to do. If your cat has developed a habit of jumping up on the kitchen table, you can't easily prevent it. To train it, you can use a spring-loaded toy. So when the cat jumps up on something, the toy goes bang and up in the air—and the cat won't like that. So it will jump down. Or you can use a toy water pistol. But make sure the cat doesn't realize you've got it. Because cats don't forgive. Once they realize a person is causing them anxiety or hurt, they just keep away.

5. How to be a good cat owner?
Understand that cats are sociable animals to a point, but not sociable to the extent that dogs are. A lot of people want to have two cats and think that two cats are twice as much fun. But the cats may not see it that way. If you do want to have more than one cat, go about it in a careful way—and be prepared to give up on it if it doesn't work.
