Why is my cat sitting and staring at the wall?

Staring at the wall for long periods could be a sign that your cat is trying to figure out what’s going on with a small movement it sees or a sound it is hearing. If they have discovered a small spider or mouse in the wall, they will focus on their prey and stalk it patiently, sometimes for hours.

Why do cats stare at walls and meow?

Why does a cat walk around meowing?

Cats often meow to initiate play, petting, or to get you to talk to them. If you want to cut down on attention-seeking meows, stop responding when it happens. Only give them attention when they are quiet. If they start to meow again, look or walk away.

Why does my cat sit on the wall?

How old is my cat when she can see?

Why does my cat rub his head on the wall?

In fact, head butting is normal and a way for a cat to let other felines know that his human ‘belongs’ to him – by rubbing his scent on his owner.

Is it normal for a cat to lay on the wall?

What do cats see when they stare at the wall?

Bugs or other tiny objects. Cats have keen senses and certainly see things we sometimes miss. When they stare at walls, it’s possible they could be intently examining a little bug or piece of dust.
