Signs Your Cat is Happy

September 01, 2020

September may very well be Fluffy’s favorite month: it’s Happy Cat Month! Cats are definitely very complicated little furballs. It isn’t always easy to tell if a kitty is in a good mood or not. After all, our feline friends can be purring and affectionate one minute, only to randomly bite us the next. Read on as a Fort Collins, CO vet lists some signs that you have a happy cat.

Playfulness

Friskiness is definitely a sign of a satisfied kitty. If your cute pet loves to pounce on things, and clearly enjoys it when you play with her, you’re doing something right!

Relaxation

We know, even unhappy cats sleep a lot. The thing you want to look for here is where and how your furry buddy falls asleep. If Fluffy has no qualms about sprawling out in the middle of the floor, it’s a good sign that your kitty is comfortable in her domain.

Smug Look

Our feline overlords have an adorable way of looking smug and self-satisfied when they are content. That superior expression Fluffy gets sometimes is a great sign!

Interaction

Although some cats are just more outgoing than others are, even shy kitties often have a favorite person they interact with the most. If Fluffy reacts when you talk to her, comes when you call her, follows you around, or even talks back to you, she’s probably pretty pleased with her life.

Clean Bill Of Health

Does your kitty get a thumbs-up from the vet at her appointments? That’s also a positive sign! While of course even the most pampered pet can fall ill, if Fluffy is getting good care, it will show in her exam results. You can also tell a lot by your furry pal’s appearance. Clear eyes, smooth fur, and a good body weight are all great signs. Healthy cats are happy cats!

Affection

Cats are very thankful for the love, food, toys, catnip, and care we give them. Fluffy often expresses her gratitude just by being affectionate. Your furball may hop into your lap, head butt you, curl up with you at night, or just quietly hang out with you. (She may also thank you by bringing you dead rodents, but that’s another topic.)

Please contact us, your local Fort Collins, CO vet clinic, for all your cat’s veterinary care needs. We’re dedicated to offering excellent care!
