Purrsonality: Understanding Your Cat's Character

By Jennifer Viegas

Purrsonality: Understanding Your Cat\'s Character

Horses have it. Birds, fish and even mollusks do too. The "it" is personality, something that both you and your cat radiate nearly every waking moment. But exactly what is personality, does this people-centric term applies to non-human animals and can it be changed?

"Personality is a complex of behavioral traits that go together without obvious reason," says Sander van Doorn, PhD, a researcher at the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico and one of the world's leading experts on the evolution of personality in animals. He says such traits are what help to characterize uniqueness among individuals. In other words, no two cats or humans -- not even among identical twins -- think and behave exactly alike. 

Evidence for Personality in Animals
Dr. van Doorn and his colleagues have studied various animals, birds and insects over the years. They've determined most provable critter characteristics fall under two sets of descriptions: risk prone and risk adverse, and flexible and rigid. Risk prone people and animals tend to be bold, brazen and relatively fearless. Risk adverse individuals are the opposite, acting wary and timid under the many situations they perceive as threatening.

Flexible people and cats are easy-going and have somewhat malleable characters under certain circumstances. For example, a flexible feline may not mind a change of toys or scenery, but a more rigid cat or person is clearly set in its ways and habits.

Tanya Williams, cat caretaker at the Humane Society of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, knows the various feline types well. "We have a sweet cat named Lydia up for adoption who is so loving and non-aggressive," Williams says. "She loves attention and is very quiet and mellow."

"Then we have another cat, which we named Alien Baby," she adds. "As soon as you open his cage, he jumps on you. He's full of energy and needs to be loved in his own way. He likes to be hugged a lot."

What Creates Personality?
According to Dr. van Doorn and other scientists who have studied personality, differences in character and temperament seem to emerge from three different sources:

Genetic. All creatures born of a mother and father emerge into the world with unique sets of DNA. This is the cellular material that carries information to "program" our tissue growth, hormones, brain activity and all bodily happenings. Identical twin humans or kittens have identical genes.

Environmental. The location and conditions under which you and your cat were raised and now live also can affect personality, the researchers have determined. For example, a cat living under stressful conditions might develop fears that a feline lounging in a literal lap of luxury might not develop.

Social. Then there are the moment to moment factors that seem to shape our characters. Dr. van Doorn attributes some of these to status and breeding position changes. "Hover wasp males at the bottom of their breeding hierarchy tend to be more aggressive," he says. "If they rise to the top, gaining more responsibility and having more to lose, they become more risk adverse." In cats, a similar phenomenon happens to pregnant females. An otherwise carefree female feline might settle down more when she has kittens. People do this too, when they settle into stable relationships and/or start a family.

Different Breeds, Different Personalities
Because selective breeding helps to control the spread and exchange of genes, domesticated animals, like cats, dogs and horses, often exhibit personality traits linked to their breed. Here are a few identifiable characteristics among select cat breeds, as compiled by the Humane Society of Southeast Texas:

American shorthair: easy-going, companionable
Angora:  adaptable, loyal
Bombay: quiet, easy-going, likes frequent petting
Maine coon: active, flexible
Manx: affectionate, smart
Persian:  loving, companionable, quiet
Russian blue: companionable, gentle, affectionate
Siamese: high maintenance, smart, active, very social

How to Bring Out the Best in Your Cat
Since environmental and social cues help to shape personality, in many instances you contribute to molding your cat's character. Here are six ways you can help guide your feline into becoming the best it can be:

  • Look for the signs You needn't have a doctoral degree in genetics to understand your feline's inherited disposition. Pay attention to how your cat reacts under daily circumstances, especially potentially threatening ones. For example, does it run for its life when company comes over, or go crazy when you take it to the veterinarian? If so, you probably have a risk adverse feline. A risk prone kitty might still be stressed under such situations, but it would perhaps growl at the veterinarian or stand its ground with your guests.
  • Be patient "Cats need time to adjust," says Williams. "You never want to rush them into behaving a certain way." If you've just brought home a new kitty, for example, and it seems fearful and timid, give it a comforting, safe retreat, which could just be its carrier, and let it come out in its own good time.
  • Create a nurturing environment Good food, a soothing place to rest and sleep, a tidy, private "bathroom," moments of quiet, and a clean bill of health can work wonders. If your cat doesn't have to worry about any of these basic needs, the stage is set for its true character to shine through.
  • Give them love, attention and regular playtimes "All cats need to be loved, says Williams." Providing affection and attention usually comes  back to the giver. If you gently rub and stroke your cat, for example, it will likely adoringly brush up against you too. Regular playtimes also are essential, as they provide good physical, as well as mental, exercise.
  • Keep in mind the "mini me" effect Since you and your cat share the same environment and often interact with each other, your cat may actually start to take on some of your personality traits! So the next time your feline gets on your nerves, think to yourself, "Could it have picked this trait up from me?"
  • Acceptance is key At some point you may have to "let go and let cat." "It is difficult, or even impossible, to change some traits that are genetically determined," van Doorn says. The beauty of such DNA imprinting is that it helps to explain all of the diversity among the world's creatures. Celebrate your cat's personality, and even its odd little eccentricities. They contribute to making your pet a one of a kind, true individual.

Brenda says: My 17 year old female, Baby kitty has her favorite mouse toy that she picks up in her mouth and wanders around the house yowling crazy and the only thing that stops her is when we talk to her and then she comes over for some lov'in. My 10 year old male George likes to sit in the closet and "yell" at our clothes. They have both done this for years, does anyone know why?

Miss P says: sigh, i wish i understood what makes these animals tick. my two tabbies are totally different in personality. the male is overall a good natured, patient, animal. He will curl up and he talks too. the female orange tabby is sweet too, much younger in her personality, but she's also vicious and a little crazy. That's what I don't understand about her... she goes from zero to psycho like rapidly. Funny thing too, she terrorizes the male cat who's twice her size! go figure... it shows personality makes a difference in humans and animals too.

Mary says: My almost 1yr old female cat who was spayed at 6 months still periodically takes poop out of her box and bats it around the house as a toy. How can I get her to stop? Also, She will sleep on my bed with me but at first she was right at my shoulder then as she got older she is at the foot of the bed with my almost 2 yrs old male neutered cat. The problem is every morning around 2:30 3am she starts circling my head nuzzles next to me and licks my arm my face in my ear. This morning she pulled my earring off and bit my toes.I know she wants loving and gets pleanty during the day before work and after. When these things happen I make her leave the room and then I am kept awake with whining and scratching at the door she even destroyed my carpet at the door. The male cat is usually still resting at the end of the bed or he decides to leave the room and get some rest elsewhere. Aside from not allowing either of them in the room It is also not fair to the male cat to not be allowed on the bed with me. It is his favorite place. what can I do to solve this problem? Please help!

kimr1956 says: My 9 year old cat (who was an only child for most of his life) was greatly offended by 2 male kittens we adoped last year, he is hatefull, but doesn't harm them. He is so territorial that he will "mark" the walls and furniture just about anywhere in the house to claim "his space". I have read ads for "natural" herbal remedies to put in his food or water - has anyone tried these and do they work ? My sister swears that a shot of femle hormone (from a vet)settled her older male cat down in a similar situation. Anyone tried that ?

I always say hugs and loves and kisses and I get hugs w/there paws on my neck, Love and they nod there head in my neck and face and they actually give lick kisses! One likes to always sit on my shoulder while I'm sitting and I swear she thinks she's a bird! They always fight over who is going to sit or sleep where w/me. I have never let them outside so they like looking out the window, but never try and get out the door. They are so careful when they walk over my junk on the tables that they don't knock anything over, which is just amazing to me! They just seem so human. I love em to death....

Mary Anne says: I have 2 cats - both volunteers - about 2 years apart. Sam - youngest, all black, very sickly when he first came around - is now like Bam Bam. He is strong. Sam is very loving. He "gets into" the kneading thing. But he goes for my throat. His little nails quickly make this uncomfortable for me. I place my hands like a barrier and allow him to continue kneading into my fingers. He literally wraps his little toes around my fingers and squeezes. He seems to be able to continue this act for a long time. Is he o.k? Is he communicating something other than affection?

moogie says: My cat immediately took a liking to my dad. Literally, first time he ever came to visit. It's like she knew he was my father and that meant he wasn't going to kill her and eat her. She plays with him, lets him pet her, and often sleeps by his door. It's weird. I've had her for 5 years, she was 4 months old when I adopted her. She doesn't let anyone touch her (accept me). At one point I had a roomate. It took my cat 6 months to finally come lounge in the living room with us. She still never allowed herself to be touched. What gives? Do cats recognize blood relationships?

Deborah says: If your cat is not fixed yet and he is going through "puberty" or coming of age then he's probably raging with adolescent hormones like my cat was. He was relly mellow and loving prior to hitting puberty then all of the sudden he became aggressive towards our 13 year female docile kitty and biting my head (mating rituals). Duh! We made a vet appt. and that wasthe end of that problem.

Sevi says: Both of you have cats in heat. Unless you really really want kittens, you need to call your vet and get her spayed. And make very sure she doesn't get outside! If they can't do it right away, the vet should be able to give you the best advice on what to expect in terms of how long and if there's anything you can do in the meantime.

Ray Wood says: I have a calico cat about 15 months old. She is female but we had her spade. She has developed the habit of coming up to me or my wife when we are in our chairs. She sets and looks at us until we get up and go with her to her food bowls. We then tell her what good food she has and then we pet her on the head and she begins to eat. Its like she is asking permission to eat. She is wearing us out. She does this all day long. She also does it to be let out of the house. How do I change this behavior.

Mommyfeet says: I have a beautiful all white male cat that's about a year old who has a bad habbit of nipping when he's not gettng the attention he wants. He doesn't show any other signs of "aggitation" when this happens. But it's more his "demand" on getting more pets. I used to allow him to sleep in my bed but he would stand on my chest and meow inches from my face at 6am, and then nip at my wrists and ancles if the meowing didn't work. NOT a fun way to wake up. I ended up locking him out of my bedroom due to that behavor. He obviously isn't waking me anymore, but he still nips at times. Especially if I give him attention frequently. So far when he does it.. I pin him down using my hand like a cat and then physically push him away giving him no attention. However, he still nips. Should I continue pinning and using "no attention for you" tactics or try something else? We have three other cats in the house, and they all enjoy my attention so I make it a point to give them all time. His nipping though just has to stop. Any suggestions?

She will lay right infront of you acting as if she wants you to either pet her or pick her up and every time you lean into her she runs the other way. is there anything that i can do to get her to be more sociable or loveable? maybe even stop her from being such a freak at times?

yungdrung1 says: is she nursing the tail, or is she biting/chewing? sometimes it's only a matter of needing a bit of a security blanket, like kneading - a regression. if it's a real chewing, look to see if there's anything like a hot spot of some kind there. some people put a bit of 'bitter green apple' on the area to dissuade chewing.

Posted on January 16, 2008

yungdrung1 says: cats feel threatened usually, when a person, especially a strange one, looks them in the eye. and, if you slowly blink at a cat if he;s looking at your eyes, he might soften and blink back...a cat 'hello'. also, cats are very sensitive to humans' body language, and it might be that the person moves too fast and strongly in the direction of the cat. OR, maybe he feels secure and wants to play with this person. what was the cat doing...sleeping? eating? just resting? cats are as individual as we are, and may not even react to the same person the same way twice. best to move slowly without staring, around an unfamiliar cat.

Posted on January 16, 2008

yungdrung1 says: there are several warning communications that cats give before action of that kind, ears back or flattened:watch out. tail thrashing back and forth, watch out (opposite of dawgs'); eyes - sometimes pupils change shape/size quickly; fur on back of spine, and sometimes on tail will stand up...watch out. tail low, with just tip slowly twitching, watch out.whiskers move from front spread out to towards the back. cats communicate with their bodies...learn all the signals.

yungdrung1 says: it will take intro the dawwg slowly, or ...didn't he ask you first? now yyou're back to sq one, and need to quietly intro the dawg to the cat, put the dawg into a crate where he can't scare or attack the cat, and let the cat sniff the dawg. read up on cat/cat...cat/dog/ intros in any good book on cats. that's an awfully scary thing to do to a cat... i'm so sorry for your cat. your boyfriend doesn't understand animals, does he.

leta rosetree says: i've had the same experience...usually a cat uses the position of 'four and 30' (four sets of claws and 30 teeth) as defense...to rake the attacker's belly with the feet. and cats are individuals, some will love soft stroking on the belly, others it signals attack mode. fine out what your individual cats' catsonality is.

Posted on January 16, 2008

leta rosetree says: sometimes cats can only take so much play before it turns into prey and hunter. NEVER use your hands as a toy...what you would see is a definite prey response...keep a toy handy, and if it appears that bites are imminent, quickly substitute the toy and get your hands out of there!

Posted on January 16, 2008

leta rosetree says: to intro a new cat/kitten, have a friend bring the newbie into your livingroom in a carrier, and set it down, then just start talking to your friend, ignoring the cats. the old boy should start sniffing the new one in the carrier. then let the new one out in a small space, like bathroom, and let them sniff each other under the door. rub each one with a towel, then switch towels, so they each can sniff what the other smalls like. after about a week of this they should be ready for a bit of face to face. if not, back to sq one. you can also feed them next to each other, while the newbie is in the carrier, then after a few days, with both outside carrier. supervise the meetings for a few days,to make sure theyare ok. and if you show no preference for the newbie right away, everything should be ok.

Ross says: I have an all black cat, his name is Jamal. My worry is that he runs from people sometimes and other times he wants them to pick him up or play.

Maybe you would have a clue on why he's like this?

Bobbi says: Betty, your cat is most likely going into her first heat, as this happens between 4-6 months. Please take her to be spayed. Donna, Cats can get "over stimulated and will get aggressive. Watch for signs like tension and tail twitching which will occur before the bite. When your cats tail twitches or his body becomes tense, stop petting to avoid being bitten. Hope this helps :) ~ Bobbi and the furkid crew ~
