Three Tips for Analyzing Bengal Cattitude

  1.  Find the Constant

To understand when your cat isn’t feeling well, spend some time each day studying his or her behavior. When you consistently observe your Bengal kitten, you’ll have no trouble telling when the cattitude is normal and when it is not.

Purrs usually mean a cat is relaxed and happy, however it could also be a purr for help. Feel your Bengal kitten to see if he or she is sore or irritable in any places. Chances are if the kitten tries to play when you interact, then he or she is feeling well.

  1.   Spoil Your Bengal Kitten

If you suspect your Bengal kitten of acting strange, give your cat something he or she normally loves, like playtime or a special treat. If your kitten doesn’t react normally, it may just be in a lazy mood.
