When a dog feels like they’ve done something wrong, it’ll stick its tongue out and flip it up as a way of apologizing. They know that they did something wrong and are apologetic.
When they do this, they may also try and put on an innocent face because they know that their owners are suckers for their cute faces. They’ll do this even when they do something like peeing on the floor.
Ever bought your cat a fancy new toy, only to discover they're more excited by the cardboard box that it came in? You're not alone. Cats love cardboard boxes! They provide small and comfortable spaces for cats to climb into and dodge potential predators.
Cardboard is also a great material for heat retention. Since cats love being warm, a cardboard box is an easy DIY sauna for them. It's also not too soft and not too rough, making it the perfect chewable and scratchable surface.
There's More to a Bunny's Chin
Have you ever had your bunny rubbing its chin on something? Maybe the sides of its house or its water container or even you? This action is called chinning.
Since the little creature's scent glands are located in the chin, this is its way of marking territory. It is the same territorial mechanism that cats use when they rub their foreheads on their owners or objects around the house.
Chewing on the Furniture Doesn't Mean They're Hungry
Just like growing children, puppies will want to chew on toys and other objects in order to relieve the pain of growing teeth. But, if your pet is always chewing the furniture and they aren’t a puppy anymore, this could be a sign of something else. It can be a sign that they aren’t getting enough physical activity and need a way to get their energy out.
You can start by getting them out of the house for a walk. While this won’t solve everything, it’s a good starting point. You can usually tell when your dog isn’t getting enough exercise and this is one telltale sign.
Using Your Body as a Bed
Not only do you make a good companion and provider of food for your kitty, but you also make for a comfortable bed. Cats love to snooze on their humans, be it morning, noon, or night.
We're great conductors of body heat, which keeps them toasty. You'll often find that cats will curl up on your chest or between your legs so they can soak up as much body heat as possible. It's also their way of showing their love and affection towards you. Sleeping is a vulnerable activity since their defenses are down. So if your cat is choosing to spend sleepy time on you, it means they trust you.
