Why do cats flop down in front of you


Why do cats flop down in front of you when you want to pet them? Why do they run away from you when you try to catch them? It's because cats are highly territorial. In the wild, cats don't have to worry about running out of food and water. They have to worry about predators.

Cats don't have to worry about predators because they live in human-built homes. But they're not domesticated, like dogs are. They still feel territorial.

Territory is defined as an area that a cat thinks it owns.

In the wild, cats would like to live in an area and stay there.

Cats like to live with lots of other cats. Cats can't get along with dogs, but cats get along fine with other cats.

Cats don't have to worry about running out of food and water in a house.

So, in order to feel secure in their territory, cats need a lot of space. In a house, cats have a lot of space, so they're often pretty relaxed around people.

If a cat thinks it has a territory, it'll run away from you if you start to get too close.

If you try to catch a cat, it might run away, or it might try to bite you.

Cats feel comfortable when they have a lot of space and have lots of other cats around.
