How to understand that a cat feels guilt

Cats also know how to feel guilt and are capable of apologizing. Therefore, the stereotype of cats as selfish, ungrateful and a bit insolent animals can be shattered.

Naturally, feline guilt is quite different from human guilt. What are the signs that indicate that the cat is upset and asks for forgiveness? Read in the article of OBOZREVATEL.

Cats react to the mood and emotional state of the owner. Everything depends on the character of the pet - some four-legged cats are more inclined to empathy, others have an independent and willful character. An empathic cat, if it notices that the owner is upset, will try to calm him down. From the outside, it may seem as if the cat is asking for forgiveness and wants to make amends.

Specialists have explained that there are several characteristic signs that indicate this behavior.

A penetrating look

The most common manifestation of a cat trying to apologize is his penetrating gaze. The pet often sits across from his owner and looks at him without taking his eyes off him. This look can seem very sad and submissive. It is as if the cat realizes its guilt and asks the owner not to be angry.

Cat "gifts."

In this case, the cat will bring the owner his toys or favorite things. Yard cats may even "please" a caught prey: a bird or a mouse. In this way, the animal is as if trying to sacrifice a favorite thing or to placate the master with a "gift".

Tactile apology

Feeling guilty, the cat may begin to show tactile affection. He will climb into the owner's arms, purr on his lap, rub his feet, caress and fondle him. It will be really hard to resist such displays of love.

By the way, cats are not as selfish as they are painted. They have their own ways to express gratitude. The first and most obvious sign is purring. Cats purr when they feel safe. It is also a manifestation of pleasure and relaxation. Read in this article about other gestures of gratitude to cats and how to show their favor.
