    Common Female Cat Behavior:

    All female cats display a distinct behavior.



    Their behavior is not much different from a male. Though the male cats are predisposed to being more aggressive, it is not uncommon to see an aggressive female cat. Female cats have a unique communication process and they bank heavily on their body language to get their message across.



    Here are some of the common cat gestures.

    • The constant lifting or shaking of paws is an indication of disgust. This means that the cat is extremely displeased. The more number of times the cat shakes its paws, the stronger displeasure it denotes.



    • If your female cat is swishing its tail mid air or against the body of a person or an object, it is an indication of aggression.
    • Rubbing paws against an object and appearing to knead the object is an action that is associated with contentment. This is an action which gives them extreme pleasure and therefore may be repeated over and over again.
    • If you see a cat sprawled on its side or its back, it means that the cat is completely relaxed. A cat that is rolling about is perhaps at the height of contentment and relaxation.
    • Pressing the head or the face against the body of another person is a sign of affection. When the cat wants to be petted or wants to show its affection, it tends to nudge its face in this manner.
    • If a cat has its ears erect and moved slightly forward, it shows that the cat is expressing interest in something. If the cat moves its ears back, this is an indication of disapproval.
    • If the cat is rubbing its body against you or an object, know that your cat is soliciting your attention. If the cat has raised its rear and its tail, this is a typical female cat in heat behavior.
    • A cat’s purring sound is a sign of contentment. They may also purr when in pain however, the body language would easily allow you to identify between the two.
    • Your female cat may greet you with a low meow sound or a chirping noise.
    • Mewing continuously is usually used as a distress signal. A cat would usually only mew continuously to ask for help.
    • You may also find your cat whining sometimes. A whining cat is complaining about something and needs attention.
    • A happy and excited cat will meow in a low pitch, ascending the sound progressively.
