What will tell a cat`s tail about?
Great variety of people - both family, and lonely, both young, and elderly - have in the house of the purring pets. Scientists from the Lyons university (France), having become interested in their quantity, conducted special research which showed that about 400 million domestic cats live in the world.
At someone - only one, and at someone the whole pride. So, for example, at Susan Neffer, the chairman of the Californian fund of animals Morris and besides the fan - the selector of cats, them lives 11, and hardly she is a champion in this quantity.
It appears, most of all them in Australia: there nine cats are the share of each ten inhabitants. In Asia Indonesia - in this country more than 30 million cats takes priority. In Europe - France with eight million. But, for example, in Peru and their Gabon it is few.
Cats communicate with owners in the different ways, and special value has here a tail because it not only means of balancing. Here we will also talk about it.
If it is lowered - means, it is possible that the cat was tired. If it is slightly got under a stomach - she is disappointed. But when the tail is raised up, it is a sign of full satisfaction. If at the same time the tip also smoothly moves, then it means that are glad to you. Karl van Vekhten in the book “Tiger in the House“ notes that highly raised tail of a cat means also pride. The cat who is walking about with highly raised tail shows these the dominance in the district.
When the cat approaches you with slightly shaking tail, thus she expresses the greatest feeling of love. But if nervously to them pulls, then is angry. Interest in something is expressed by easy stir of a tail. To cats, as well as people to have to rise before the choice from time to time - in that case they begin to wave a tail, will not make the decision yet. Funny, huh?
during hunting they put aside it back, and express an abrupt bend of a tail no confidence. If the tail makes roundabouts, and ears at the same time are pressed to the head - it is a sign of obvious irritation.
And if kittens run up to the mother with the lifted-up tails and begin to rub about her sides, then adult cats so behave in relation to the owner or the hostess: rub a tail about legs waiting for a forage or caress.
At attack threat hairs on a tail are reared and puff up. By the way, domestic cats unlike wild cat`s are able to move with vertically raised tail.
But how tailless cats do without so important body? For example, breed which lives on the Isle of Man or those that lost a tail as a result of a trauma? Somehow manage. However, according to veterinarians (in particular, doctor Michael Fox), “their alarm repertoire is substantially reduced. As though the person communicating in a sign language had no fingers! It is a shortcoming. The essential element of communication is lost“.
Certainly, cats communicate among themselves and with people not only by means of a tail: there is still a voice, ears, paws. But the tail is extremely important for communication, especially at murlyk, silent on character, and it is useful for owners to know this language.
