Cat Behaviour: Hissing
As intimidating and scary as it can seem, hissing is simply the way a cat swears. My own cat is so sweet, I know she loves me, but she swears like a sailor. Any little thing can set her off, like a snag while brushing… "Fuk u! Watch what ur doin there. That hurt!" She’s over it in a second, and back to her laid-back self, and in all honesty I do love a foul-mouthed girl. Just a tip though, never laugh at somebody who’s pissed enough to swear.
Many make the mistake of saying “Shhhh!” when their cat hisses, but when you think about it, to the cat it probably just sounds like you’re hissing right back.
As with humans, the kind of anger that can lead to foul language may end in violence, but is usually just a release valve, a way to let off steam. Of the two kitties in this gif, the one who’s most likely to swipe at you is the top one. You can tell because it’s ears are laid waaaaay back. It’s seriously pissed, and ready to take it to the next level!
In any case, people usually make too much of hissing, and it does sound more nasty than it really is, but, next time puss hisses at you, just say “Fuck you!” right back, and give it some room to cool down. Cats may be quick to anger, but they are even faster to forgive.
