Perhaps you’ve been woken up to your cat eyeballing you while sitting on your chest. Or, you may have felt their gaze boring into your back.

The Discerning Cat

Remember that every feline is unique and full of character. You know your cat best, but here are five general reasons why a cat may be eyeballing you.

They’re Hungry

Meowing and solicitation purring (as mentioned above) are some ways that cats ask for food. You also might find them sitting near their food bowl, staring at you longingly.

They’re Scared or in Pain

If you’re the one in your household that spends the most time with your cat, they may identify you as the human they can trust most and may come to you when they’re afraid.

They’re Agitated or Angry

If you’re forcing a cat to be bathed, groomed, or participate in any other “unauthorized” activity, chances are they’re not going to forget about it any time soon.

They’re Trying To Get Your Attention

We all know that cats can be absolute divas – especially the “only children.” When their Royal Majesties request your attention, they very well expect it.

They’re Showing Affection

Even though staring is considered rude in humans, it’s a way for cats to let you know that they love you.
