Some says cats rubbing on your legs are a mere act of spreading her scent as a way to mark territory. That is partially right. Cats commonly rub up against trees, couch, chair legs or other objects in the exact same way, which allows them to deposit pheromone-containing secretions that naturally come out of their skin.

Since cats and humans don’t share the same vocal language, it is better for us to take an extra heed to their body language. Cats tell you so many things with their body, their tails, ears and eyes. When they slowly wink at you, it’s their greeting and you are supposed to wink them back if you want to be polite.

You may be able to apply to human to human communication as well. Action rewards more than words as we all know. If you love somebody, do something that somebody would be glad and pleased. It doesn’t matter what you think is good to them, it’s about how do they feel. It’s a basic fact, but we tend to forget we are all different. Cats tell us about it directly.

Independent Creature

Cats prefer to deal with things in their own heads. This is why they are so curious and willing to explore new stuff without fear. And they don’t be scared by unknown, try again as long as that something interests them. Cats don’t do anything to please you, cats act on their own code.

Cats don’t look to humans for guidance in unfamiliar situations. Cats are more likely to explore the space on their own terms, so they appreciate if you don’t bother with their exploring and let them do what they want to do.
