Have you ever released how your cat nudge your face or cuddle when you're sad?
Does he hide in his favorite spot when you're mad or arguing with someone?
Cats don’t really have the ability to read your body language as well as dogs do, but a cat will observe you and understand your patterns and the way you tend to act. When you are sad, your cat will notice the difference, and may approach and investigate you, trying to figure out what is going on. If you are actually crying, the tone of your voice will probably tip your cat off that something is wrong; cats are pretty good at understanding your tone of voice even though they typically understand only a handful of words.
Are cats able to sense sadness too ?
Yes, absolutely. As a responsible cat owner, it's important to know your cat's feelings, just like he knows you. When your cat cuddles with you after a long day, remember to return the favor. Animal behaviorist Warren Eckstein believes cats can become anxious or depressed if not acknowledged by their owners. "They may not react the same way, but they definitely feel the same emotions we feel," Eckstein said.
