「貓咪肢體語言大解謎」- Body Language in Cats


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Hi, I'm Nicky Trevorrow and I work at Cats Protection. Today we're gonna look at some behaviors of these lovely animals here, cats, and see why they're actually quite complicated and quite assaulting, their behaviors, much more so than social species such as ourselves and dogs. So, let's have a look at the cats, and see what you think is going on.
嗨,我是Nicky Trevorrow,我在Cats Protection工作。今天我們要看幾個這些可愛動物的行為,這裡,貓咪,然後看看為什麼牠們確實蠻難懂且蠻有攻擊性的,牠們的行為,比起像是我們自己和狗狗等群居動物還更勝一籌。所以,來看看貓咪,並看看你想的是怎麼回事。

When a cat comes towards you with the tail up, usually pointing at the top, it's a sign of a greeting in cats. This is a lovely behavior to say that usually when they're greeting on your coming home, or they're soliciting attention, the best thing to do with these behaviors is to acknowledge their greeting, and you should give them a bit of fuss, like a head rub for example.
當貓咪走向你,尾巴向上翹,通常指著上方,那是貓咪打招呼的象徵。通常當牠們歡迎你回家時,或是牠們在乞求關注時,這是一個可愛的行為,回應這些行為最好的事是示意有收到牠們的問候,且你應該給牠們一點寵愛,舉例來說像是摸摸頭。

When cats are rubbing around ourselves or the objects in the environment, usually corners of things, they're often using like parts of their body like their cheeks, and up here, and their sides. They're actually depositing scents. Whilst it looks like a really gorgeous behavior where they're sort of smooching these areas, it is in fact scent marking. We often see these behaviors, particularly when we first arrive home for example, when they're rubbing around our legs. It is a greeting behavior as well, but primarily because we smell a bit funny when we've been out, and they're trying to make the smell more familiar.
當貓咪們在我們或是環境中的物品四周磨蹭時,通常是東西的角落,牠們通常使用像是牠們身體的一些部位,像是臉頰,還有上面這裡,還有牠們的側邊。牠們事實上是在留下味道。雖然這看起來很像一個非常高貴的行為,牠們有點像在親吻這些區域,這事實上是在用氣味做標記。我們常常看到這些行為,特別是例如我們一回到家,牠們繞著我們的腿磨蹭時。這也是一種問候的行為,但主要是因為當我們一直都在外頭時聞起來會有一點奇怪,而牠們正試著要讓那個氣味更熟悉一些。

The slow blink is one of my favorite behaviors. This is where you slow blink as a cat, so you really slowly open and close your eyes, and then with a perfect cat etiquette, just turning your head slowly to the side. This is showing the cat that you're nice and relaxed in their presence, and that you're not threatening at all. If you're really lucky the cat will slow blink you back.
緩緩眨眼是我最喜歡的行為之一。這是你像隻貓咪一樣緩緩眨眼,所以你確實慢慢地打開並閉上你的雙眼,接著來個完美的貓咪禮節,就慢慢地把你的頭轉向一旁。這是告訴貓咪你對牠們的存在感到安心且放鬆,而且你一點都沒有威脅性。如果你真的很幸運的話,貓咪會對你緩緩眨眼回禮。

When cats have got their ears flattened either to the side or back, this can be a sign of stress that they're quite frightened. What's really important when for cats that are feeling stressed and frightened is to give them a place to hide, and the opportunity to get up high.
當貓咪將牠們的耳朵平放在側邊或後面時,這可以是壓力的象徵,表示牠們十分受驚。非常重要的是當貓咪感到壓迫且受驚時,要給牠們能躲起來的地方,還有能爬到高處的機會。

Now when you return home, and the cat throws itself from its side and shows you its belly, often many people misinterpret this behavior and think it wants its tummy rubs. Now unfortunately, those people that would have tried this behavior will unfortunately get a glue grab on their hand, and maybe the cat would bite them as well. That's because what this cat is really doing is showing a greeting behavior, and also that it feels relaxed in your presence. It trusts you. And it's almost an abuse of that trust to go in straight their tummy. What the cat would rather you do is just to give him a slight head rub, and that's it.
現在當你回到家,然後貓咪從側邊伸展自己並給你看牠的肚子,許多人經常誤解這種行為,認為牠想要摸摸肚子。現在不幸的是,那些試過這樣行為的人會很不幸地在他們手上被賞了一記「貓抓手」,也許貓咪也會咬他們。那是因為這隻貓真正在作的事是表示問候的一種行為,而那也表示牠們對於你的存在感到很放鬆。牠相信你。而直接去摸牠們的肚子近乎是一種對牠們信任的傷害。貓咪寧可你做的事是只是給牠們輕輕地摸摸頭,就這樣。

Lip licking can occur for a variety of different reasons. For example, if they've just had something to eat, then you'll notice them doing a really big lick. However, it can also be a sign of nausea. And in this particular cat, it's a sign of stress. So when cats are stressed, it's really important to give them a place to hide, and the opportunity to get up high.
舔嘴唇可以因為數種不同的理由發生。舉例來說,如果牠們剛有某些東西能吃,那麼你就會注意到牠們非常明顯地舔嘴唇。然而,它也可以是作嘔的象徵。且在這種特定的貓身上,是壓力的象徵。所以當貓咪受到壓迫時,給牠們躲起來的地方、以及爬到高處的機會是很重要的。

Purring is part of these behaviors that's a myth to all cat owners. It often shows a cat that's content, often soliciting attention, but sometimes it can actually be a sign the cat is in pain.
貓呼嚕是對所有貓飼主來說成謎的這些行為其中一部分。它通常表示一隻貓咪是滿足的,通常是乞求關注,但有時候它事實上是貓咪不舒服的象徵。

I hope you've enjoyed looking at these cat behaviors and found them interesting. Hopefully when you go home today, you look at your cat with a whole new light, and hopefully you improve your relationship with them as well.
我希望你們喜歡看這些貓咪的行為,並覺得它們很有趣。希望當你今天回家時,你以一種全新的觀點看著你的貓咪,並希望你也能增進與他們的關係。
