To most of us, we communicate by speaking to one another. This is known as verbal communication. At a more subconscious level, humans also communicate with non-verbal queues like body language and intonation for example. It turns out however that humans are not the only ones who try to communicate our feelings and thoughts to one another. Veterinarians have found that certain animals, like your pet cat, rely primarily on their body language when they try to speak to us or to each other.
