Just like people, birds use their voices for various purposes — warning others, protecting territory, socializing, attracting mates, and more.
When your winged friend is making one sound or another, it could be trying to interact with you! If you hear it whistling, singing, or talking, these are good signs indicating a happy bird. Depending on how much they enjoy company, they might even be louder if there are more people around.
"Making biscuits" or kneading does not mean your cat is moonlighting as a baker. It refers to the gentle motion of pushing paws into a soft surface, usually accompanied by purring and drooling.
Kittens will usually knead their mother as they drink milk because it helps to activate the mothers' milk glands. It's thought that the sensation of "making biscuits" makes the cat feel safe and secure, just as they did when they were around their mothers as kittens. Another benefit of kneading is that it releases pheromones from glands in their paws. It lets them mark their favorite blanket (or even their favorite human) as their territory.
Droopy wings are something you usually see in either very young or very old birds. The young ones might present wing drooping as part of how they learn to fold their wings.
When presented in older birds, droopy wings usually mean they are tired or possibly sick. When wet, birds might also let their wings droop to help their feathers dry more quickly.
Eye of the Cat
Getting a glimpse of your cat's eyes when fully dilated can be slightly spooky. Cats are usually on the prowl for prey when there's little light outside.
To ensure they find dinner, their pupils will expand to let as much light in as possible. If your kitty has big eyes during the day it may be a signal that it's in heat, or that it's feeling stressed. It's always a good idea to keep a (cat) eye out for dilation changes.
Open Mouth, Relaxed Tail, and High Ears
Many people wonder when is the best time to approach a dog. Well, when you see one with an open mouth, a relaxed tail, and ears pointing straight up, that's when.
When a dog is like this, it means they are in a neutral and relaxed state and they feel safe in their current environment. So if you want to get some cuddles in, this might be a good time!
