Cat Needs and Basics

Learn more about body language, play, and good habits for cats.

Feline Body Language
Cat communication is a combination of body language, scent marking, and sounds like meowing, hissing, growling, and so on. Since, as humans, we aren’t able to use scent or sounds to communicate with our cats, understanding their body language is very important.
Play and Enrichment  
For your cat’s physical and behavioral health, give them something fun to do!
Creating  Good Habits
Your cat’s behavior is influenced by a number of things in their environment and daily life with you. You can use these to start creating good habits today - whether your cat is new to your home or a long-time family member.
