Cats have a range of powerful vocal expressions. They meow, sing, purr, spit and snarl, and even when their paws are tucked neatly underneath them, their body language is still very expressive.

As a greeting they rub their bodies against each other; if they are unsure of something they arch their back or tilt their ears. And if they don’t want to communicate face-to-face or vocally, they simply leave behind a few fragrant messages!
