Do find your cat giving your hair a deep-clean with their tongue on the regular? Cats usually use their tongues to clean their fur, but your hair can sometimes get caught up in it too. You might be thinking that your hair isn’t clean, but the real reason is actually really sweet. Keep reading!
A better bond
Cats learn from an early age not only to lick their own fur but also that of other cats. This is due to the fact that their mothers clean them for the first few weeks of their life. And they don’t only do it to stay clean, this action also shows that they feel comfortable. By washing each other, cats create a stronger bond and help each other feel safe.
Scents in your hair
If your cat is constantly licking your hair, it could just be a sign that they feel good and safe with you. Although there haven’t been any scientific studies on this, it seems pretty likely. Another possibility is that your cat is attracted to certain scents, like your shampoo or even your sweat.
When your little fur ball is licking your hair, it can mean several things. If you notice that your cat only does it while you’re on the phone, then they’re probably just looking for a bit of attention. They probably know that you’re more likely to pet them or cuddle with them. Clever cats!
Ever noticed that your cat sometimes follows you to the bathroom to get your attention? Read onto the next page to see how this works.
It won’t be the first and also not the last time that you see your cat out of the corner of your eye while you’re walking to the bathroom. Why is your cat so interested in following you in there? Cat expert and behavioral therapist Anneleen Bru says that there’s no real scientific explanation for the phenomenon but there are a few reasons as to why your cat insists on keeping you company when you head to the restroom.
One of the reasons could be that your cat just wants the attention. “Because there’s not much else to do in the restroom besides looking at your phone, your cat is well aware of the fact that they’ve got a bigger chance of getting your attention. So, it makes sense that they’d want to come with you,” the cat expert tells Newsmonkey. But that’s not the only reason.
Cats don’t have a clue about what people do at home. Sometimes they’re cooking and then they start doing dishes. They’re constantly moving around and that can be confusing to your furry friend. If you’re headed to the restroom, your cat knows this behavior and its predictability makes them want to be around you.
We all know that bathrooms don’t smell like roses after you’ve done your business, that’s for sure. Cats love scents… no matter what they are. For cats, a bathroom is like a Walhalla of scents which is why they follow you in.
