Don’t you wish your pets could talk? Maybe then they could explain why they do such unusual things! Here are some common behaviors that folks ask about:
- Howling Cats: Cats yowl when they are after attention, but sometimes because they’re just plain bored! Try to find some new activities or toys to occupy their time.
- Howling Dogs: Dogs often howl in response to an unusual sound, such as a siren. Sometimes a simple distraction helps, such as offering a treat, a tummy rub or a walk.
- Licking the Carpet: Dogs often do this as a calming technique when they’re stressed.
- Body Licking: Licking their fur a lot may indicate a rash, allergy or even an infection. Take your pet to the vet for a checkup to rule out any problems.
