What's My Cat Thinking?
What is my cat thinking? What is my cat doing? What is my cat trying to say?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It sounds as if your cat has you puzzled! While no one can really say exactly what a cat may be thinking, we can get a good idea from closely watching its actions. Cats are good at getting our attention by the way they meow or the things they do, such as scratching on a door.

If you pay close attention to your cat, we're sure you'll begin to understand what it is trying to tell you. And if you offer your cat something it doesn't want, it will be sure to let you know that, too!

You might like to ask a librarian at your school or community library to help you find some books about cats. You will probably find helpful information there that may answer many or all of your questions. Your parents may be able to give you more information, as well.

Good luck! :)

Best wishes,
The Highlights Editors
