There are several ways a cat can tell it is getting bored
Jan 04,2022 | Maume
1. Excessive grooming or other repetitive behaviors.
Cats may repeatedly lick themselves, pull out fur or chew/nibble on their skin, causing irritation and prompting them to be able to escape this frustrating state of boredom.
2. Chasing or attacking other pets. Chasing other cats in the house, or going after a dog that is resting, or even bothering a hamster in its cage, are all signs that the cat has become very bored.
3. Not interested in playtime
Cats spend an average of 15 hours to nap, so when you come home from work to tease it, it may be lazy, but a cat that is not bothered by boredom will quickly become active and play with you, and a bored cat will not respond much no matter how you tease it.
4. Destructive behavior
Cats may use destructive behaviors to release their repressed emotions, such as scratching expensive sofas or carpets, or even urinating and defecating on the bed to attract your attention.
In this stage and the human state is very similar, it will choose to endlessly eat to relieve boredom, but this is also very easy to fall into the cycle of overeating after the obesity caused by fat, after the cat mobility is reduced, will be more and more bored.
When the cat is in a state of boredom can only be resolved by the owner carefully, such as home to spend more time playing with the cat, leave more toys at home when you go out, buy interactive cameras, more talk with the cat.
It should be noted that if the cat is constantly in repeated moods or has been stumbling, to see if there is a physical abnormality, take it to the animal hospital for a medical examination.
