It is pet season all around and you’ll see people buying or adopting pets a lot during this pandemic time. It is also good for the adopted animals as they get tobe in happy and nourishing households. A lot of people struggle in figuring out how to make their pets frank with them and trust them, especially cats because they are relatively tougher to come around. Well, don’t worry, we will tell you all you need to know!
To make your cat trust you, you need to take care of your cat’s feelings and habitat. Here are some tips to help your cat have faith in you.
Firstly you need to respect your cat’s space. You should also know how comfortable your cat is when being touched. Make sure your interaction gives a positive vibe to your cat. Observe what your cat is trying to convey through her body language. It will take some time but don’t worry you will get there, just be attentive towards her. Your behavior should be soft and gentle, and you should talk or spend time with the cat often.
Let your cat get comfortable
Let her sniff through her environment as cats collect information through smelling, do place your hand near its nose before touching. Every animal needs food and it also proves to be an important facet in developing trust, so give food and water to your cat at regular intervals. Make a cozy bed or space for your cat to relax. You can move your hands through their ears and chin in the early stages to make the cat feel safe.
Spend time playing with your cat and cuddling. Socializing with cats when they are newly bought or adopted is essential but make sure you are not overwhelming him/her. The cat shouldn’t feel forced.
Signs Your Cat Is Trusting You
If the cat rubs her face often or rolls over on her back, know that she is comfortable with the environment. The cat will start eating through your hand and will eat anything you give. They sometimes bring things as presents around to their owners when they are aware of their needs. Licking is also a sign of showing trust. Cats follow their owners when they are used to the owner. She will start sleeping near or on you frequently. It will allow you to pick her up and move around.
