Is Your Cat Able to Tell When You Are Happy or Angry? — 11 Comments

  1. One more instance was when I was telling the mean ol man off and to stay out of my garden (1 month ago) and he was trying to bait me and make me mad , telling I eat cat poop, one of my feral Colony, who I can’t touch, heard my voice (and his) and I heard him crying, the mean ol guy said “there’s one of your dirty cats” Now this was 1:30 pm an that cat would never be out in the Garden at that time, esp with the mean guy. But he was telling me as if by ESP, “c’mon Mama, get away from that jerk and follow me , and I did,(just walked away and followed my big Orange boy) and he walked in front of me with his tail high like a flag, until I was near my own garden. The mean guy saw this, and that kitty saved me from getting angrier at the mean guy and his lousy, dirty talk about me eating cat crap sandwitches and baiting me.

  2. Michael………. I believe they have an extra ordinary sense of intuition,(we humans are too busy thinking of the past and future) Just like my outside Colony learned to stay away from the mean people here that live in my Apt building. They can read your feelings and who you are! Funny thing is ………..someone called the Company and complained about cat poop for years, yes, once in a great while , one of the kitties would go in someone’s garden but the day the bkig Company cat poop inspector came, there was not even one little poop to be found anywhere!! I told them all My fur kids) to stay away from the gardens and the bad people and they went next door to an adjacent field and only God knows where and the inspectors couldn’t even find a cat on the property where I live when they came to inspect, not a one. So they went away saying “there is no cat poo problem there and that stuck with the management and the Company , so they never did another inspection, despite the fact a mean man lied and complained to all Gov’t agencys for years about my fur kids. Go figure, Cat’s are so smart and so is the Creator who created them. They are so smart that when they see me outside near my Garden, like little fairies , they pop out from behind bushes, trees, out of nowhere, there they are, all happy to see me. They know how much I love them and they love me, they can tell my feelings, heck anyone who loves someone can sense things, don’t you think???

    • I am convinced that people in general don’t fully appreciate the intelligence of animals in general and cats in particular. There is much more going on inside the head of a cat that we as people give credit for. Intelligence does not have to mean high IQ.

  3. My kitties always know, they would sense my emotions, over the years when I was upset about a particular person,(You know who) my cats would sense my emotions and try to jolly me out of a bad mood, if that didn’t work, my female 14 yr old, would get mad at me and try to attack me, she was extremely sensitive to my mood and my energy.

  4. My cats can sense our human moods and understand if they have done something wrong akin to dogs.Only difference is that akin to dogs they are not obedient and will repeat the same truant or mischief again and sulk when scolded !

  5. So funny.
    Yes, they know full well when I am happy or displeased.
    They know me like no one else knows me.
    They even anticipate my reactions to situations.
    It’s a run and hide state sometimes.
    They understand my words…
    “What the Hell…”
    “Who did this?”

  6. In my limited experience cat’s choose people with laid back personalities to befriend rather than people who have changeable flighty characters. Maybe being a pretty laid back animal they look for the same in a human. So I think it goes further than just reading our emotions, which I am sure they do. I can’t say I get angry as such with my cat, fleetingly annoyed maybe a better way of putting it, then I point at her and say “No”, she knows what it means. She gets “the point” so to speak.

      I think you are spot on there. I do the same as you saying ‘No’. I have never before had to say ‘No’ to my cat but Gabriel is unneutered and 4 months old so he is a big manic and can hurt himself and me. I am forced to take control sometimes.
