How to Be Cat Like
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation In order to imitate cats for an acting part or simply because you like feline behavior, there are various techniques you may use to learn how to act like cats. Each cat is unique, although many of them exhibit habits that are similar to one another. While dogs are warm and cuddly, cats can be as fussy and standoffish as they are affectionate and cuddly.
- 1 Get plenty of sleep and take cat naps. Cats are well-known for napping at any time and in any location. Make sure you get a full night’s sleep as well as several short naps throughout the day if you want to be like a cat. The time it takes to take a brief catnap should be 15 to 20 minutes, so you may take many throughout the day. If you are unable to sleep throughout the day, attempt to sleep in the early hours of the morning. If you are able, try to sleep for an hour or two.
- Find a great sun patch where you may have a warm, comfortable sun bath. The majority of people consider cats to be lethargic, yet what’s wrong with being content in one’s own skin? Curl up in a ball in the fetal position on a plush cushion or a new pile of warm laundry in the fetal position. The tummies of cats are protected when they sleep since here is where they are most susceptible.
- 2Practise yoga to help your muscles loosen up. Immediately after waking up from a nice nap or a long night of sleep, stretch your body to relieve tension. Take your time extending every muscle in your body and reawakening your body, just like a cat. A fast sun salutation is a terrific stretching technique that includes stances that are similar to those of a cat. Yawn to stretch your facial muscles and make it appear as if a cat is waking up as well
- Three Cleanse oneself on a regular basis. Cats groom themselves by licking and pawing their faces in order to remove food, smells, and extra hair from their bodies. Shower at least once a day, if not twice a day, to keep debris and excess oils off of your skin’s surface. Check your appearance in the mirror many times a day, and clean up after yourself after meals.
- Growing your nails out and having them fashioned into a point is another technique to be like a cat
- Some cats are declawed, while others are not. You should brush your hair every day so that you don’t lose hair throughout the day and that it remains free of knots and matting
- 4 Spend some time outside having fun. Bird-watching, tree-climbing practice, and getting outside to enjoy the natural world are all recommended. Maintain an active lifestyle to keep yourself healthy and in the attitude of a curious cat. Once you’ve exhausted yourself, lie down in the sun for a while.
- Cats like being amused and being in the company of other cats. Participate in group activities such as playing and lounging
- Hunting is an activity that will put you in the mentality of a cat. Even an indoor cat will seek and chase after toys if given the opportunity.
- 1 Instead of only expressing yourself verbally, use body language to convey your emotions. Just like a cat, you may express your moods without speaking a word to the other person. If you’re bored or exhausted, turn your back on the person and walk out of the room. If you’re enjoying someone’s company, sit close to them and close your eyes when you grin to demonstrate that you’re satisfied and happy
- In spite of the fact that you lack a tail or ears, you may still convey your emotions to others without having to say anything. If you’re waiting for supper to be done, you might walk back and forth or back away if someone tries to contact or embrace you.
- 2 Experiment with the tone of your voice to see what works best for you. When you’re pleased and content, speak in an enthusiastic tone, and when you’re angry, integrate a growl into your voice. You are not need to meow in the same manner as a cat, but you can imitate their noises. Because cats chirp and mew at things they enjoy, you might be able to emit high-pitched, delighted squeals when you see someone or something you appreciate.
- You may hiss, much as a cat does when it feels threatened or agitated, to express your discontent. If you want to be able to communicate with cats, try to replicate their meows and other sounds as closely as you can. Pay attention to how they speak and try to sound like them.
- 3 Create a signature scent for yourself. Using pheromones that humans are not sensitive to, cats communicate with one another in order to attract mates and warn other cats to keep away. Choose a perfume or body spray that is pleasant-smelling so that others will want to be in your company
- Make a point of cooking with garlic and onions or handling other foul-smelling stuff, and don’t wash them off, if you’re trying to repel someone.
- 4 Blink slowly to indicate that you are interested in someone. A common misconception is that cats are staring at somebody whereas, in fact, cats blink slowly to indicate that they are interested in someone. To express affection, blink gently and evenly from side to side. The use of this technique is especially beneficial when you’re getting to know a new cat and want to signal that you’re a buddy to him.
- There are some people who may not notice this conduct, and it may appear to be more apparent to them. Instead of batting your eyes quickly, consider batting them slowly to appear less scary.
- 5 Swat someone who is causing you irritation in order to warn them. If you ever find yourself in a quarrel, refrain from going all out and physically hitting the other person. As an alternative, rapidly hit someone on the arm to warn them that a fight is about to begin. Cats will swipe at other cats, dogs, and people at the outset of a fight, and it is not always necessary for the dispute to grow to a physical confrontation.
- A word of caution A swat does not have to be particularly severe
- It only has to be rapid and sharp enough to get someone’s attention. If a true battle does break out, cats will bite and scratch the people who are fighting against them. Just be cautious and think about the ramifications of employing these techniques in a real-life battle with someone.
- 1 Maintain a high level of alertness and awareness of your surroundings. Cats have extremely sensitive hearing and smell, which allows them to be acutely aware of their surroundings. Pay attention to what’s going on around you, whether you’re doing nothing or in the thick of a project or a discussion. It’s an excellent technique for being safe while also being as perceptive as a cat
- Imitating cats by reacting unpredictably and leaping at items that catch your attention is another technique to do so. If you hear a strange sound or smell anything strange, you should investigate. Cats are inquisitive, and you should be as well
- Second, be reserved among strangers, yet friendly and inviting after you’ve been acquainted. For the most part, cats are wary and often standoffish with strangers when they first meet them. Not everyone you meet should immediately become your buddy, since this is more like acting like a canine would. Make others earn your trust and friendship by treating them with respect. As a result, you’ll have vital friendships for the rest of your life
- 3 If you want attention, ignore people and then demand it when you want it. Choose who you spend your time with and how much time you spend with them. Cats don’t always like being lavished with affection, and you shouldn’t feel obliged to do it either. If you need some alone time, you should walk away from someone. When you’re ready to interact with others again, you may simply rejoin a chat.
- You have the right to your own personal space. If you need to be alone, avoid allowing others to annoy you. In the event that they become bored with your attention, cats will hiss and snarl at you. Just like a cat, being chatty will signal others that you want to interact, and abstaining from talking will tell them that you’ve had enough of socializing.
- 4 Gently head-butt and nuzzle the individuals you adore to show your affection. Once you’ve established a deep relationship with someone, you might express affection for them, particularly physically. Cats like massaging people’s bodies with their paws and rubbing their heads to define their territorial boundaries. If you want to show someone that you care about them, you can stroke their backs or nuzzle their significant other.
- Use your discretion while performing these activities with individuals you know well, or else they may not grasp what you’re up to
- 5 Give folks gifts as a thank you. Cats deliver food to their loved ones as a way of showing affection. Making modest gestures for your friends, such as bracelets and trinkets, is a nice way to show them that you appreciate them and are thinking of them.
- Cats, like dogs, hunt and leave their kills to provide food for their masters and companions. You may take care of the people you care about by providing them with food, such as by making complete meals for them or by sharing a portion of your lunch with them.
- 6 Have a sense of humour. Break stuff off of counters, sit on someone when they are trying to do a task, or be inquisitive and look in cupboards and behind closed doors to see what you can find. Cats are cute, but they can also be a nuisance when they get in your way. Consider having a little fun by blocking someone’s view of the television when they’re attempting to watch something on it.
- Make a nuisance of yourself. Even if someone requests that you cease your behavior, you do not abide by their request and do not tone down the cat impersonation.
Create a new question
- Question What are some catlike sleeping postures that I can adopt to make myself feel more catlike? You may either curl up in a ball or just spread out on the floor. Cats may be found sleeping in a variety of poses. If you have a cat, pay attention to their sleeping patterns or look at photographs or videos of cats on the internet. Question How frequently should I take a nap? Katlover101’s Answer from the Community You can use it as frequently as you like. Just not when you’re at school, in the bath or shower, or when your parents ask you to do something
- Just when necessary. Question What do catwomen dress like? They can do whatever they want. Cats are self-sufficient and do not require the approval of others when it comes to their clothing choices
- Question Occasionally, I put on a cat collar (which I created myself) and go out in public. Is that a little too feline? In no way, shape, or form. You might even take things a step further and get a genuine cat collar. Just be certain that you can remove it
- Question What many of naps should I take every day during the summer vacation? But I don’t want to miss out on anything because there are so many beautiful areas in the sun or the shadow. Question: If you don’t want to miss out on anything, you could take a number of short naps
- Do you have any suggestions for locations to sleep while I’m attempting to be as cat-like as possible? Sofa, carpeted floor, dog’s basket (which should be cleaned beforehand), floor nest (made of folded blankets), laundry basket if it’s large enough, and so on are all good options for sleeping arrangements. Additionally, it should inspire you to generate your own ideas – explore about the home for comfy areas
- Question I’m wearing cat ears and paws that aren’t real. Is it strange to put them on in public? Katlover101’s Answer from the Community Without a doubt, this is not the case. Nobody notices that I’m wearing cat ears that aren’t real. However, make certain that anytime you wear your paws, you are still able to wield a pen or pencil if necessary. Question Do you have any advice on determining when you should stop acting like a cat and start acting like a human? People constantly referring to me as “strange,” and my relative claims that taking naps is only appropriate for toddlers. Answer from the TurtlePlayz Community First and foremost, naps are appropriate for everyone! Second, if you truly believe that people are irritated, don’t stop
- Instead, tone it down a bit (unless you’re not having fun, in which case you should stop)
- And third, if you truly believe that others are irritated, don’t stop
- Instead, tone it down a bit. Question I have a cat of my own. Do you believe that observing him will be beneficial to me? Definitely. A cat’s walking, purring, sleeping, washing itself, and eating habits will be demonstrated. Then you may use your understanding, combined with your creativity, to imitate the cat’s movements. Question Do you have any ideas for chokers that look like cats? Although I own several chokers, I believe that putting a tiny bell or heart with my name on it would be nice. What do you think of this idea? Yes, a nice bell or something along those lines might be appropriate. Additionally, a choker made of satin or ribbon-like material would be the most authentic. Just remember not to create too much noise with the bell
- It’s a delicate balance.

- Cats should be observed in order to have a better understanding of their habits and movements. If you are unable to have a pet cat of your own, spend time at a friend’s house who does. Study feline agility, movement, and body language in films such as Catwoman or the musical Cats to see how humans may imitate them. Hide in tight locations if you have the ability to do so, and when you become bored, simply stroll or crawl out as if nothing had occurred. Include hiding places in your home so that you may feel safe. Take a large cardboard box and crawl into it
- This should help. Move quietly, be nimble, and blink slowly. Another advice is to create a faint purring noise when you’re happy
- This is a good way to express happiness. When you’re exhausted, curl up in a ball in any comfortable position you can find
- Cats are extremely adaptable. Consider taking up yoga or Pilates to help you relax and unwind. If you have the ability to drop into a buying crouch, do so. It aids in the stalking of prey (birds, mice, fish, and so on)
- Always be sure you understand what you’re doing before taking action. If you want to, you can spend some time among actual cats, but not too much. Cats may be either sociable or introverted depending on their temperament. Outside play will assist you in taking naps during the day and even sleeping better if you listen to relaxing or sleeping music.
Thank you for submitting a suggestion for consideration!
- Cats may be unusual and eccentric creatures, and they can be downright hilarious! Here are some suggestions on things you may try: When you encounter new individuals, you should flee and conceal yourself. Getting into fights with other individuals
- Purring extremely quietly (to the point of being hardly audible)
- Placing “dead creatures” (stuffed animals) at your loved one’s feet, exactly like you would a cat, might be comforting. Have a selection of cat toys or fidget toys to keep you entertained
- Laser pointers are something you should get infatuated with.
About This Article
Summary of the ArticleXIf you want to behave like a cat, take frequent naps during the day, especially if you can locate a comfortable location in the sun. When you wake up from your slumber, take some time to stretch out your body, being sure to lengthen each muscle group individually. To keep up with your cat’s cleanliness and preference for a well-groomed appearance, take a shower at least once a day and keep an eye on yourself in the mirror throughout the day. Utilize your body language to communicate how you feel, such as leaning into someone if you like them or shutting your eyes when you smile to demonstrate that you’re pleased.

It is not an easy task, but it is possible. For those who are fed up with bipedal life, with the whole absurd rigamarole of walking upright and wearing clothes and eating their food with utensils — not to mention all the objects that seem necessary to acquire, such as food processors and cars; not to mention all the rituals that no one enjoys but which everyone feels obligated to continue with, such as cocktail parties with your coworkers, charity fund-raising events, and so on; for those who are fed up with bipedal Keep in mind that the exterior transformation occurs only at the very end, following a lengthy and persistent effort on the part of the individual.
- There is a great deal of inner work that has to be done before then.
- It is possible to work on it for years, meticulously following the stages, and still not succeed in completing the transition.
- Those who go through the process say it goes so easily that they feel as though they were always supposed to leave their humanity behind.
- It is likely that this will be the case for you.
- It is necessary to go through five separate processes in the process of felinization.
- The ancients referred to this as the Music of the Spheres, which consisted of the sounds generated by the planets as they rotated through space.
- For cat lovers who sit silently for a long time, a chiming-like sound that appears to originate from nowhere and everywhere at the same time will most likely be detected by your cat.
- Soon, you’ll be able to hear it intermittently all the time.
Then you’ll be ready to move on to the next stage of the process, which will require you to turn your bones into liquid beneath your skin, allowing you to flow through the shadows at the foot of walls, through the tall grass, and into spaces that seem far too small, but which you manage to squeeze through nonetheless.
This suppleness will be able to fold up and expand itself in equal proportion.
This may be anything from milk to water to oil to blood – it doesn’t matter.
After the seventh dream, your previous solidity will begin to crumble and crumble into nothingness.
When you stop feeling awkward around others and start feeling dread when you are at parties, meetings, and other gatherings of people you don’t know well, you will be able to let go of the fear of not knowing what to say and appearing dull, or of talking too much and appearing foolish; the awareness of being hopelessly separated from everything around you, locked away inside your head.
- Your dreadful self-consciousness will drain away until all that is left inside you is sinuous undulations, and you will have the sensation of being a part of a huge orchestra of motion that extends as far as your imagination can take you and beyond.
- At this time, your friends and family members may begin to be concerned.
- They’ve warned you not to be stupid.
- What makes you think you’d want to be anything other than a human being?
- As you begin to make progress, though, you will radiate a sense of peace and well-being that will be evident to everyone around you.
- They will make negative comments about every change you go through, and they will not miss an opportunity to tell you how odd you are becoming.
- Make an effort to disregard this.
It is in our inclination to respond negatively to change in persons we claim to love, as well as to anything that is unfamiliar or unusual from the norm.
To get away from mankind?
You’re on the right track.
It is only tangentially connected to the behavior of observing, which in comparison to the feline gaze is more akin to a transient look.
At any given time, just a small portion of their attention is focused on their immediate surroundings.
Whatever they focus their attention on becomes the most intriguing object on the face of the planet at the same time.
You will realize how much you have been losing out on all these years when this happens.
If you’ve ever been bored in a world where there’s so much to see, hear, and smell in just a single room, you’ll wonder how you ever managed to survive.
Although it is the most arduous stage of the process, a significant number of aspirants lose their resolve at this time and return to their previous lives, despite the apparent consequences of doing so.
This one is a little more complicated.
These links are a jumble of messes and a disgrace to behold.
This process will be tough at times, such as when your spouse sobs because you are looking at her as if she is no more or less important than the furniture, the curtains, or the fly buzzing around the windowpane in the room.
Or when your children are dissatisfied because you have neglected to acknowledge whatever effort they have put in, such as a crayon drawing of a family, a good grade, or admittance into a prestigious college program.
Every year, millions of people achieve them, and only we, with our inflated egos, would seek to be rewarded for something as insignificant as this.
Despite the fact that it may be difficult to watch them in such suffering, it is best not to attempt it.
It’s possible that you believe you’ve made a tremendous mistake.
You’ll notice that not caring becomes easier as time goes on, and you’ll soon feel a tremendous feeling of relief from the weight of all that exhausting emotion.
Cats, on the other hand, are remarkably self-sufficient.
There is just one thing that has to be done.
You have an almost entirely feline sensation.
You are not scared of nightmares since you are hunting them in the darkness under the home.
Despite this, the transformation is not complete.
Traces of your previous existence still linger within you.
Occasionally, memories will rise up from a forgotten corner of your memory, causing you to lose your newfound elegance.
You’re undoubtedly interested in learning how to accomplish this.
Everything you’ve gone through up to this point has been completely reversible.
You can temporarily restore your human habits, but before you know it, you’ll be back to your old ways, surrounded by the huge clutter of the human world, with its dishwashers and pianos and motorway overpasses.
Once you complete the last stage, you will be transformed into a cat for the rest of your life.
A large number of individuals do.
But no one — and I mean no one — can tell you how it’s done, and that includes yourself.
Cats are secretive creatures who are well-protected and skilled at concealing.
What does it matter to them if we know or not?
Is this an issue for them?
To witness someone shed the last traces of humanity and transform into the person she has desired to be for so long is an amazing experience.
The fur appears, menacing and shiny, and the eyes change to gold and become impenetrable to all light.
The teeth are transformed into needles, and the claws sprout and thrive. The last traces of bewilderment and attachment have vanished from the face for good. It’s both gorgeous and terrible to witness at the same time.

In Nikki McClure’s latest picture book, a cat spends a day learning the fundamentals of feline behavior from her mother, a cut-paper artist.

In tales that vary from the amusing to the deep, the kitty triumphs at times and struggles at others.

Consult with your cat-owning friends for ideas on area veterinarians, or go via vet directory websites such as BringFido. During your cat’s initial check-up, make sure to inquire as to whether or not your veterinarian has observed anything concerning about your cat’s health that you should be aware of.

If you have a kitten, this is especially crucial because the period between two and twelve weeks of age is regarded to be the most critical for socializing.
