3 cheesy stereotypes about cats debunked

Debunking Cats' Stereotypes

One of the most horrible stereotypes about cats that I have heard is, when a black cat cross your path or comes in your way/route, It is most probably considered to be a sign of bad fortune. The history for this strange stereotype goes back to early....wait we are not going to discuss that here maybe some other blog for that (let us know if you are keen to know the history of all these stereotypes that we are going to discuss here in this blog)

The 3 most bizarre and 'cheesy' stereotypes associated with cats are as follows:

1. The Creepiest: Cats always land on 4 paws

So much is said, but it is false. A common misconception is that a cat always lands on all four paws. However, everything occurs in a split second, with little time to respond. There's just one conclusion: protecting your house so that your feline companions can't jump or fall from unsafe heights is an important part of creating a cat space.

2. Cats can get aggressive pretty easily and can attack people

This misconception is most likely based on one of the most prevalent difficulties faced by cat Carers: bored cats attacking their hands and feet. The behaviour isn't proof that cats are hostile towards humans; instead, the issue is generally a cat that hasn't been taught correct playing methods. If we play with the cat with our hands or feet, they will perceive us as a wonderful assault target.

From the time a cat is a kitten, correct skills for playing with a wand, a string, a ball, or a kicker should be practised. Allow only caressing and strolling above the cat poured in the centre of the floor to be done with the hands.

3. There is no such thing as a cat-human communication

The idea that cats are vengeful may be linked to another myth, such as the false notion that cats are unable to interact with humans. Various studies on cat behaviour show that our feline friends are adept at reading our expressions and behaviours and have developed communication techniques such as meowing (which they don't use to communicate with other cats), rubbing, purring, and adopting a specific stance to communicate what they require. 

The issue here might be on the part of the caregivers; the cat language should be handled as any other foreign language and learned from the ground up. It's not enough to have a cat at home and immediately recognise all of their signs.

A toast to those who stayed with us to the finish! Which of the myths surprised you the most? Perhaps you've never heard any of these before? We'll be waiting for your experiences and maybe more misconceptions to debunk in the comments section. Take care, and keep in mind that it is our job to dispel cat misconceptions and prejudices in our immediate surroundings. Best of luck!
