Top strange cat behaviors explained! Watch to find out the meanings behind weird cat behaviors and how to understand cats as well as learn some of the bizarre cat language these felines tend to use!
One of the odd behaviors you may have noticed about your cat is that it likes to talk a lot, especially when it spots a bird through the window. This is referred to as chattering. Us humans usually find the noise funny and like to record videos of our furry friends doing this; but, it is actually part of an ingrained hunting technique. Domesticated cats have no real purpose for this behavior anymore, but they still do it out of instinct. When the cat hears a bird or other critter making loud noises, it will chatter to lure it in; it observes the bird and tries to copy its call. Scientists made a discovery while studying monkeys in Brazil in 2010. They were recording the monkeys vocalizations when a small, wildcat showed up. This cat, called a margay, started imitating the sounds to draw in prey. This was the first documented account of a cat mimicking a prey species calls in the Americas.

Were arent talking about Stephen Kings Pet Sematary, where your old feline companion comes back to life; no, were talking about all of the fuzzy or not so fuzzy creatures your cat likes to bring home to you. Every once in a while, a cat will bring its deceased prey back to the house and offer it to its owner. They do this for a few different reasons. The first could be that they want to share their meal with you, just like you give food to them, and they consider you a member of their family. Another reason they might do it is to show appreciation; they will offer the prey as a present, even though you probably dont want it. A third possibility is that they are presenting it as a trophy to show you what they view as an accomplishment. So, dont freak out if your cats bring you a critter now and then; it might seem morbid, but they mean well.
