Cats can do all sorts of things that seem cute and funny to us. Most owners don't even know what these movements mean and what causes them to do them.

Often, we see a cat arching its back, but we don't always understand what signal it is giving us. That's why OBOZREVATEL looked into this phenomenon and found the answer to the question.

Most often, furry animals arch their backs out of fear. They fluff up their fur, and this posture helps them look bigger and more formidable. Therefore, at such a moment, it is better not to touch the animal because you can get hurt due to fear.

Cats also take this position when they are in pain. In this case, you need to take a closer look at the cat's health and, if necessary, take it to the vet.

It is also worth seeking medical help if the cat behaves distantly, licks its fur excessively, and shows aggression. These are signs of unhealthy behavior.

Cats can also arch their backs during play or from pleasant sensations. Also, the simplest explanation may be that the pet just wants to stretch.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told you which cats have an unbearable temperament. Some breeds have vindictiveness and waywardness in their genetics.

Also, cats have an unpleasant habit of going to the toilet in the garden or vegetable garden, which can lead to food poisoning due to parasites entering the soil. We'll tell you how to wean the animals.

Fluffy pets with the longest fur need to be taken care of more carefully and brushed daily to prevent tangles. Read how in our article.
