Any cat owner would tell you they're still trying to figure out why looking at traffic or a dish of fish is so interesting. We're still learning about the human mind,
but maybe one day we'll comprehend how cats see and interpret the environment. Until then, we can only infer cats' thoughts from their communication and behavior.
Yes, they think mentally. However, they see emotions differently than humans do, such as loyalty. We assume dogs are faithful, right? That's myth. Have you ever wondered why cats don't like vehicle rides?
Because of their home and people devotion. They like safe, warm, and cherished places and people. This is sometimes seen as a lack of affection and connection. As humans, cats naturally retain grudges and become upset at those who injure them.
In humans, 'aggression' occurs when they're not permitted to chose and feel upset. Independent animals like having a voice in their care, and they want humans to respect that.
Cats never keep grudges or try to get back at you for washing them in cold water or disregarding their morning'meows' Cats are also guiltless. When punished, they tremble or shy away, but this is not guilt; it's a reaction to your anger.
Unlike dogs, cats have a flexible hierarchical organization. They each possess many resources in their surroundings, yet when resources are few, they may be envious. Thus, in a multi-cat home, no cat should share a resource. Considering how cats think, your time with them is valuable.
The two emotions that unite us are pleasure and grief. When calm, cognitively engaged, well-fed, played with, groomed, and given enough attention, cats are happy. When bored, anxious, hungry, filthy, or ignored, cats express melancholy that humans mistake for anxiety or despair.
