Interesting facts about cat psychology

  • Cats have a built-in filter for uniform movement, therefore it is more efficient to play with it, waving the toy impulsively, with stops. If you wave it back and forth, cats have an interesting reaction: after about 30 seconds it stops seeing the toy and begins to look through it.
  • Cats can be taught. The problem is that people aren’t trying hard enough to educate.
  • Cats do not consider the owner the one who feeds. If you want a cat to consider you a master, you must either pick it up from your parents as a kitten or bring it up (that is, punish it for dirty tricks and forbid filth). And the one who is feeding is just the one who is feeding
  • In education, logic and consistency are important. If the cat decides that you find fault where there isn’t one, then it will either write everything off to your bad mood and continue playing with curtains later, or it will be offended and will do something different.
