The cat is a mysterious creature. These animals have their own character, moods and habits.
The cat’s habits
People who had no acquaintance with these beautiful creatures, often seeing these animals do not understand them. And those who have a cat at home for a long time, knows they habits. For example, they like to rub against surrounding objects, because they make necessary for them marks in such way. All marked by them helps to feel them in familiar territory. They have special temporal glands for applying marks, which are on both sides of the forehead between the eyes and ears. The same organs can be found near the corners of the lips. These are special glands. Secretions of them are left by animals on the doors, stairs, railings, furniture, when cats rub their head against them.
These glands are also on the tail. Isolating specific secret kitty applies it, raising the tail and pressing it to a particular object. The glands can also be found around the anus and, of course, on the paws. If the cat likes some man, she also leaves a mark on him.

Beside of it people often don’t know why do cats like boxes? Well this habit has come from the wild nature. Cats are predators by nature, and therefore like to sit in ambush. But it soon becomes apparent that this, at least not one reason for such behavior. Researchers, veterinarians and behavioral biologists have long been interested in this issue. Veterinarian Claudia Wienke from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, working in the cat shelter, found that if you give a box as a temporary refuge on the period of development of new cats, they better get accustomed in the shelter, and then more willing to communicate with people. It logically corresponds with the cats reactions to stress, they tend to withdraw and hide.
Are the cats evil?
Those who held the cat at home for a long time, he knows her habits. People, who have not had this opportunity, often seeing these animals do not understand their affections, do not understand their desires.

It often happens that a cat responding to caress, bite the hand of a man who did not understand such a behavior of the animal, and becomes offended. But all is clear. Cats, trying to show their affection for the man, mark him again, biting, leaving saliva. She does not want to offend or to hurt, but just to show friendliness. Friendly man for a cat – is the same as a mother for a kitten. For example, a cat, being on someone’s lap, tremble down with paws pressing of one or the other. Such movements resemble the behavior of a kitten, who is feeding by the mother. Ethologists called this action “milky step.”
