In terms of pet cats, you can just tell whether or no they are either angry or scared. For instance, if they are angry, then they are puffed up, their tail spreads out like a bottle brush, and their back is arched. Moreover, you can also tell when they are scared when their ears are flat to their head and then they cower. But how will you find out if your cat is quite relieved? Well, you can see that they look relaxed, will stretch, and will be cleaning themselves as well. When they are finished cleaning themselves, that is the time that you stroke them because they are much calmer and would like to have some time for relaxation after the thing that has bothered them is already gone.

There is one part of your cat that is most telling of what they want to say: their tail.

With the mere mention of dogs, you will know that they are happy because they will immediately rush towards you just slobbering anywhere. If you talk about cats, on the other hand, you can see that they are happy to greet you when they approach you with a tail that is vertically upward and completely straight. If the cat considers you a stranger but wants to know you, then it will go near you with a tail that is vertical and the tip that is pointed to your direction.

Usually, if they give you short mews, then the cat is just saying hello or wants something from you may it be they want to go outside, some affection, or food.
