Our beloved cats can be funny and at the same time can be weird fellows. Some of them enjoy sleeping on our heads, playing with boxes, bringing us dead mice, sprinting and jumping or resting on top of cabinets. But, by far our favorite “strange behavior” that cats seem to love is knocking things over. While this can be funny, it can be really disturbing and messy as well.
Why Do Cats Knock Things Over
Some strange habits can be easily explained, but this habit leaves us wondering. According to cat experts, there are lots of reasons why cats knock things over.
The hunting instinct could be one reason why your pet takes a paw to everything. Cats’ paws are very sensitive and by knocking things over they explore their environment to make sure that it is safe. However, after a few good tries, your kitty is clever enough to learn that your favorite items are not a threat. So why do they keep testing gravity? The answer is very simple! Just because it gets your attention.
To summarize, knocking things over could be a way for your cat to express things. Emotions, feelings, needs, or instincts, explore the environment and mainly get your attention. You should keep your kitty happy and protect your belongings. In order to succeed, make sure that you keep your kitten entertained, and don\\\’t forget to follow the feeding schedule.
