    Do cats communicate?

    How do cats communicate with other cats, animals, or people?

    They communicate through vocalizations and body posture/movement.

    If you listen to a cat meow, you'll notice subtle differences depending on what they want. I've had so many cats through the years, I know what they want by the meow.

    Purring is used for showing contentment, although some cats will purr if they're sick/injured. You'd have to look that one up because I can't remember why they purr when not in a good mood.

    Two of the most common body postures are the "scared" cat (with back up and hair raised) and showing their belly (submissiveness). There are so many others, I can't list them all.

    Each cat is different, so you have to learn how they communicate with you, other people, and animals by observation.

      Each cat sure is different and unique.

    They speak and communicate a few ways.

    One: The tail http://purrfectlove.net/2014/08/tail-talk/
    Two: Verbal http://purrfectlove.net/2014/07/13-sounds-a-cat-makes/

    Both links provide you with the info you need.

    I see my cats kiss noses as a greeting. They are showing each other that they like each other.
