Cats have amazing eyes. They can see in the dark and even have a third eyelid to protect their eyes. Cats are masters of the staring contest. If you’re competing against your feline friend, you’ll need to be lucky to beat your opponent. Why is my cat staring at me? I’ve found the answer!
Cats are complex little creatures. Therefore, to answer the question “Why is my cat staring at me?” There are several reasons for this question. ……
What cats want.
If you are the mother of a human child, you may feel the burning gaze on your mind when your child wants something. Especially when they sit down for the first time all day. Our cats are masters at getting what they want. We know exactly what is a priority for them. My cat definitely stares at me when he’s hungry. It also meows. Some cats stare more than others. My “staring champion” cat is pretty intense, and I’m by far his favorite cat.
It stares at me when it’s hungry. This happens quite often. So I’ve gotten used to its stares. Think about the times of day your cat stares at you!
Says Dr. Katherine Pulliam, owner and operator of Applebrook Veterinary Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee:
Cats are notoriously nosy, so when a cat is looking at you, it’s probably just watching what you do for fun. There is always the possibility that your behavior will produce something the cat wants, such as food or attention. Our cats definitely recognize that we are a resource to them.”
Cats stare at you just because they’re curious.
Despite what some people may think, your cat knows you’re not a huge cat. Cats aren’t stupid and they don’t meow at other cats. It’s only after kittenhood that they meow at us. Cats are naturally curious. Some breeds of cats are even more curious. If your cat is constantly staring at you, he may just be wondering what he sees in you that he can’t see. Oh, isn’t that long hair? Your hair looks different today. Wow, you look better in stripes. The usual cat judgment.
Your cat likes what it sees of you.
This may feel like criticism, but take it as a compliment. Cats don’t focus their eyes on anything. This is because cats are very calculating. If a cat is interested in something and stares at it all the time, then what it is staring at is valuable. For example, think about what happens when your cat stares at a squirrel or a bird outside your window. This will excite them and keep them staring for quite some time. If the cat is staring at you, then you are attractive to it. Have you ever noticed that after a cat looks at you closely, it slowly blinks its eyes? According to cat logic, this is how the kitten gives you a kiss. Let’s give it a kiss back.
Look at a cat’s pupils when it stares at you
A cat’s pupils let you know how they are feeling. So if your cat is staring at you and has visibly dilated pupils, keep this in mind. It is not normal for cats to open their eyes regularly. If you notice that your cat’s eyes don’t look normal, make sure you see your veterinarian. In addition to blood tests, your veterinarian may shine a light in your cat’s eyes to see how they react. However, it is not normal for a cat to have their eyes open all the time, and this is a sure sign that there is something wrong with their health.
