Understand Your Catís Body Language (video)

Your cat canít tell you in words how it is feeling, but it can communicate with its body language.

This video shows you that when your cat is happy it will have relaxed muscles, its tail will be drooping and moving slowly, its ears will be at a 45 degree angle to its head, and its eyes will be half open or closed.

For more tips, watch the video.
