Don’t you love when your cat reacts to something in a way that’s totally unpredictable? You never know what they’ll do!
Some reactions can be simple meowing or running away as fast as possible. Others come from things like the sound of someone sneezing loudly, which usually makes them jump straight up and run off somewhere else.
Cats are a curious bunch. Maybe that’s why they seem to be all over the place when you sneeze, or maybe it just means cats get bored easily and don’t know what else to do!
The cat can meow in your direction, or come towards you for an attack – so we will explore one such particular reaction: their interest in sniffing around where your nose was before (and hopefully not licking up any of those snotty tissues).
We’ll look at different reactions from other sources too-like how some dogs might jump into bed with someone who has been sick…or scratch them as if trying to remove something bad on the skin.
Why Does My Cat Meow When I Sneeze?
It may seem next to impossible, but there are always reasons behind why cats meow.
First of all, it’s important that you know the fact and fiction about their meowing habits so we can give an answer when people ask us “why does my cat keep on making noises?”
The truth is- they have a reason for everything! Cats will purr from pleasure or as a sign of contentment; some might grunt if they feel like grooming themselves in your lap while another could be just excited because he knows his meal time’s coming up.
It also depends on what type of breed you’re holding right now: Siamese would whip around with those long ear strands and start yowling away at nothing more.
A Response to You:
Cats love to snuggle with their humans and will often behave differently when a human sneezes. They might meow, or if they are startled by the noise, jump up on things like tables that can tip over!
If you have allergies then your cat may even choose to find another room in order avoid any trouble from an allergy attack!
A Concern of Cat:
One way that cats show concern for humans is by sneezing.
They can pick up behavioral traits from other human, so it’s not surprising that they do the same when you have a mighty sneeze! It might just be their way of asking if you’re alright.
Try To Mimicking You:
Cats are the coolest animals in the world! They’re just like, so cool I can’t even deal with my own life sometimes when they come and cuddle up to you purring all adorable-like…I love them that much.
But these aren’t any ordinary cats because some of them seem to be able to talk back which is really freaking neat if you ask me!
You should always bless your cat if they sneeze near you, but that doesn’t mean it’s the same for when you do.
Scientists think cats are naturally trying to say “bless you” whenever we sneeze and so expect them to be really sweet about this too – like a human would!
The truth is our pussies just can’t communicate as well as us humans.
Gesture Of Annoyance:
If your cat is sleeping near you and they are woken up by a loud sound, then it can get angry. Cats express their annoyance with meowing when communicating with humans but if the noise wakes them from sleep or rest this could be expressed as growling to show anger.
You may already know how your cat responds to sneezes in normal circumstances just check for any changes that indicate whether the last one has annoyed him!
That’s why it is important to know when you should suppress your sneeze so as not to irritate others. If the cat isn’t phased by a suppressed noise then they’re probably use to loud noises and that could be an indication of their temperament too!
Misconstruing The Situation:
Cats are notorious for their superior hearing, thus they should know the sound of sneezing which is like a hissing noise.
But this reasoning only applies to certain people with very peculiar sneezing habits; as cats also sneeze, they would understand what it sounds like and react accordingly.
An Appropriate Scolding:
Your cat can give you a long lecture when they startle your loud sneeze.
It might seem far-fetched to think that the cat could chastise us for just one simple noise, but it is not at all out of our realm of possibilities either.
And while we cannot say with certainty what cats may be thinking in such situations, there are many ways to modulate sound and avoid disturbing them altogether if need be!
Another Reason To Talk:
Some cats are more talkative than other, and if you have one of those in your home it’s important to know how much they can communicate with you.
Cats will often respond when startled by talking back or running away but some cats may take a natural approach that makes them feel as though humans sneezing is an attempt to speak cat language because the sound varies so widely from person-to-person.
The best thing for us all here would be simply acknowledging their meows rather than trying too hard – we’re sure our furry friends understand what we mean!
Sneezing too loudly around your cat may be a surefire way to rouse it from its slumber. The meowing might seem like they’re asking you to stop being noisy, but in reality cats are notoriously bad at making their needs known!
Cats just need some extra love and attention after the shock of an unexpected noise.
Sneezing can startle them because there’s no predicting when one will happen-we sneeze for all sorts of reasons: dust or pollen in our noses, nose picking that we forgot about until later (gross!), allergies, stress…the list goes on and on!
A Little Inquisition:
Cats have been found to be able to differentiate between low and loud noises, often reacting more fearfully or aggressively when they detect a high intensity sound.
This may go some way in explaining the reason for this strange habit of cats who meow loudly at their owners when we sneeze! Cats are curious creatures by nature; many will show concern if they feel there is something wrong with their owner through various vocalizations like calls that seem submissive.
The best thing you can do then is reassure your cat as soon as possible- it would not be surprising though for them to follow up on any questions once everything has calmed down again!
You may have heard that cats are solitary creatures, but unlike many other animals they can be social. They often lick or smell each other to understand the mental state of their counterparts and meowing could just be a way for them to communicate with you as well.
