When it comes to calling attention, cats are true masters. Whether long Maunz concerts, gentle Patsstupser or jumping on the desk - the velvet paws know that their people can not resist them.
Usually, cats want attention because they are hungry, play, want to go outside or because they feel like cuddling. However, if your tiger behaves abnormally, for example, is aggressive, suddenly very shy or shows other behavioral changes, let the vet better clarify. However, the following characters from the cat vocal repertoire are usually not a cause for concern.
When cats disturb at work ...
Cats do not like it when they bother with their daily activities - nap, eating, cleaning. But that does not mean they also leave their favorite people alone in their daily activities. Especially when you sit at the desk and really want to work, having cats in the house is not that easy. Schwups, Kitty has already jumped on the desk and lies down in front of the keyboard just like you can not tap anymore. Or she tries to "help" you and dabs her keys on the buttons with her Flöchchepfötchen. Maybe the situation seems familiar to you as in this Cole and Marmalade video?
Cats are not only bothered with great pleasure at work, if they want to catch your attention. Once you've made yourself comfortable with the newspaper or a book on the sofa, it will not take long before your Schnuffelschnute jumps on your lap and wants to cuddle. Or just lie down on the page you just wanted to read. But actually, this behavior is so cute and adorable, that you can not be mad at the fur noses - and they know that, it seems.
"Meow! Attention! Immediately!"
Another way to grab your attention is the "meow" of the cat. Small kittens communicate with their mum by mumbling, but adult cats usually only meow humans. Anyone who knows his own mum well knows how their various moms sound and if they are hungry, go out or play or are in a cozy mood. The cat Casey in the video, for example, now wants to be left immediately in the garden and there to see to the right:

Playful street tigers want attention
If cats think it's time for their play lesson, they generally communicate that quite clearly. Some salon lions simply pick up their toys and put it in the lap of their favorite human or at their feet. Other tomb tigers get their wild five minutes and whiz through the apartment. Or they simply start playing with their humans, for example, by hiding and pawing their legs as soon as you walk past them. It gets a bit painful when cats are in a playful mood while their human playmate lies in bed. Since it may happen that is bitten heartily in the toes, which hide under the blanket.
There is another way
If cats want attention, they can become very inventive and are ready for any outrage. For example, they jump on the kitchen unit or the table, although they are not allowed to. They throw objects on the ground or knock glasses over. Maybe you'll climb up your leg, watch for hours, play the alarm clock at night, or roll off the roll of toilet paper. These and other cheeky habits of cats who want to wrap their favorite people around the finger, you can see in the following video:
