Cats are very independent, and so they are easily misunderstood, says Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA and author of the new National Geographic book "How to Speak Cat. He aims to unravel the mystery by helping people discern what cats are trying to convey.
Crafty kitties can make 16 different meow sounds and usually only unleash them when people are around, he said.
A slow blink from a feline, for example, is like a wink between friends, Weitzman said.
"Blinking is like a kitty kiss," he said. And extending their tails straight up equates to a human handshake, he said.
If a cat's ears are flat, don't get close because it's scared or facing a fight, Weitzman said.

"Dogs love to run, but they don't necessarily sign up for a three-mile run," says veterinarian Gary Weitzman, former chief executive of the Washington Animal Rescue League and co-host of NPR's "Animal House. When you take your pooch out for a long-distance run, you "are asking it to do something that's unusual for a dog to do," he says.
"Dogs are sprinters, not long-distance creatures," explains Weitzman, who is now president and chief executive of the San Diego Humane Society. Running long distances with a dog can put a strain on the animal's tendons and joints, Weitzman says, especially in young dogs.
And some breeds "are not runners at all," he says. Among them: short-nosed dogs such as pugs, Boston terriers and bulldogs, as well as short-legged dogs under 15 pounds, such as Yorkies, Shih Tzus and Lhasas. Even breeds that would seem to be runners, such as greyhounds, aren't built for endurance sports, says Weitzman, a greyhound owner.
And although a dog might not be able to "stretch" like humans do, your pet does need to warm up, Weitzman says. He suggests starting out with a walk, when your dog can also "take care of business," which means fewer run interruptions.
