Playing?

Hello

When I am just standing infront of the cat, it sometimes stands up and puts both front paws onto me to support it. The claws hook onto my clothes.

When I pet it, it tries to stand up and move its head into my hand (with part closed eyes) and usually gets its claws out to try and hit/catch my hand.

Why does it gets it sharp claws out and why does it want to climb me?

Thanks

She wants attention from you, and she is just using her claws to steady herself.

You could trim her claws if it's a problem, as many of us do here. Just ask how, if you're not sure.

Hi

When I pet it why does it go for my hand (it already has my attention)?

It looks like I will get a scratch if I don 't move my hand quickly out of the way.

Thanks

Sounds to me as if she'd like a good head skritch, at least that's what mine do when they want their heads rubbed. She's just playing with you.

One of mine does that, too. He just wants me to rub his head and tell him he's a good boy.

I see.

Sometimes (usually at night) it does a very deep meow, that really doesn't sound like a meow sometimes. During the day its behavior seems normal though. Why the weird meows at night?

Also, the other cat rolls on its back in the garden (on concrete), and when its on its back it uses its front claws to drag itself, upwards, along the concrete. I thought it wanted a belly rub, but it didn't. Why does it do this?

Thanks

Well, my first thought would be that he/she wants it's back scratched. My second thought is for you to check his/her back to make sure there isn't any irritation there.

As for the 'deep meow', I'm not sure. Maybe he/she is just tired and settling in for the night?

How many cats do you have? How long have you had them?

Just curious; is the cat spayed/neutered? If not, the deep meow could be "calling" to cats of the opposite sex.
