Why Do Cat’s Puff Out Their Fur?

Your feline friends fur can be compared to a pressure gauge which displays their emotional moods. Essentially, the higher your cat’s fur raises, the more pressure your precious feline is feeling…

Fur puffing is one of several natural survival instincts that are designed specifically to ensure your kitty cat looks larger in-front of whatever is threatening them. Make no mistake whatsoever, your cat puffing their fur is a threat response!

It hard not to think that kittens look very cute and comical when they do it! This usually comes when they hear an  unexpected move or sound. Kittens are funny little things and this is a default move, as they do not feel so confident when dealing with unexpected threats.

When they get older they will get much better at and confident when dealing with these types of threats, so kittens can puff up much more regularly. They are sensitive creatures that can be triggered by the slightest movement or even from a shift in the light!

Puffing out the fur can also be involuntary, as when a cat hears a sudden, sharp, loud sound. It can be a real shock to the system and will take them a while to calm down fully.

Another interesting thing about cats puffing out their fur, is when it becomes anticipatory. When a cat is not sure what is happening next for example and yet their senses are fully alerted.

Cat’s puffing out their fur is a very important signal that should not be ignored, it can never be done on purpose. Or,  by the cat pretending either. It is an intense feeling for a feline, that’s for sure!

I actually like to playfully tease my cats all the time, yet I never get the puffy fur signal though. I guess that is because they know I am not being too serious with them and I know that their limits so as to not make them angry or frightened.

If you make your cat puff their fur, then you are doing something wrong, that’s for sure!

When your cat is nicely relaxed, so is their fur. Always try and listen to it.
