The Cats speak more than dogs, using a whole arsenal of conversation. Like the eyes, the lamb or the tail, the ears say a lot about the mood of our company. And about the message that it wants to convey. The cat ears, a conversation manual” I will introduce the subject. You will know better your cat and all she wants to communicate.
The cat ears, a ,,conversation manual”
Talking cat through a language in which he uses not only the young man but also the whole of his body. Thus, the position of the ears can be a very accurate barometer of his feelings and moods. When the cat relaxed,
quiet, the ears are slightly straight towards the back and outward.
But, when they raised and picked, the cat is very attentive to everything that happens. Listen to something interesting. Or he just heard a noise. If, but, the ear flaps directed laterally, then that means an imminent attack. If the cat frightened, you will notice that the ears turned back and stuck to the head. This posture is instinctively adopted
The cat bends its ears as the feeling of fear increases. Their complete flattening happens when she terrorized or ready to attack. Also, the general position of the body, associated with this posture of the ears, is easy to recognize. A frightened cat ready to give back urgently or but to attack stands with his back curved. And his body positioned diagonally towards the opponent.
Instead, when expecting imminent but pleasant physical contact, for example, a comfort, the cat gently tucks her ears back, without sticking them to her, and wags her tail. Also, the cat can move its ears independently of each other and can hear any sound from any direction, without having to move its body. When they move their ears in all directions, they express their nervousness, uncertainty, increased attention or fear. In this way, she tries to catch any noise, to expect any movement, to protect herself from danger.
Here are some amazing facts about your cat’s ears.
Cat Ear Care
When the cat is healthy, the ears are generally clean. The cat knows how to wash. But, we must not neglect the care of our cat’s ears. To disinfect and sanitize the area. To examine the ears and make sure the cat has no problems.
The periodicity with which you will perform this operation will determine according to the time in which you notice that the cat’s ears need to cleaned. Generally, it is enough to clean the cat’s ears every two weeks.

The cat has a great hearing acuity, being able to capture frequencies up to 60,000 hertz. It can distinguish a wide range of very low-intensity sounds. Mahes her one of the animals with a very refined hearing. That is why its range of vibration perception is three times greater than that of man.
The cat’s hearing is very sensitive. Allows her to perceive including ultrasound, high-frequency sound vibrations. The upright position and the size of the ear allow the cat to capture each noise. Even though, given its character. The cat uses his hearing, guiding himself to his pleasure and willingness, directing his attention wherever he wishes. In contrast, older cats tend to remain deaf. It compensates for this deficiency by vase and odor.
Deafness is also a common accident in kittens and related to the traumas that occurred in childhood. We can hardly tell if a cat is deaf because, thanks to sight and smell, it manages to behave like a normal cat. Deafness confirmed 15 days after birth is rather present in cats with white fur and blue eyes.
The loud noises immediately arouse the cat’s interest. The number of nerve fibers in the auditory nerve is about 52,000. In humans, there are only about 31,000 nerve fibers.
It is easy to understand why the cat easily perceives noises that escape us even if we are very careful. It locates very well the place where the noise comes from and the distance from which it occurs.
With the help of sensitive research methods, it has found that the cat can produce rapid vibrations of air in the larynx. The wavelength is of the ultrasound field. Even in young cats aged 30- 40 days, mouth opening is sometimes observed without the animal making any sound.
It has proven that during this “helmet” ultrasounds with a frequency of 80,000 Hz received which received by the mother cat facilitating the supervision of the chicks. The mother reacts each time by moving the ear flags. Moreover, it can respond by opening its mouth and expelling air with an ultrasonic frequency of 50,000 Hz. Ultrasound also plays an important role in the life of mice.
Thus, thanks to laboratory research, it found that young mice communicate with each other. Or with their mother and with the help of this system. Those it is not excluded that the cat will locate the position of the mouse precisely by intercepting such calls.
The acoustic and static role
The ear is a complex organ. It has an acoustic role but also static. It ensures balance. It consists of three parts: the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear. The outer ear made up of ocular pavilions that can move independently of one another.
They are capable of capturing sound waves.
And transporting them to the external acoustic channel (a cylindrical channel ending with a tympanic membrane).
Behind the tympanic membrane is the middle ear. It composed of a cavity filled with air. It located in the temporal bone of the skull whose upper part comprises 3 small bones (nicovală hammer and stair). They have the role of transmitting sound into the inner ear. Here the cochlea, (part of the inner ear intended for hearing, connected to the vestibule the posterior portion of the labyrinth responsible for balancing the vestibule and semicircular canals) receives sound waves. Through lymph, it transforms them into mechanical waves. Their function is to maintain body balance and stimulate the acoustic nerve. It related to the brain. About the structure of the ear and its function can found here.
The position of the ears can be a very accurate barometer of their experiences and their moods. When the cat relaxed, the ears are straight, slightly brought back and out. If, the ear flaps directed laterally, then that means an imminent attack. If the cat frightened, you will notice that the ears turned back and stuck to the head.
In contrast, when expecting imminent but pleasant physical contact, such as a comfort, the cat gently rests its ears on its back, without attaching them to it, and wags its tail.
When the cat is healthy, the ears are generally clean. The cat knows how to wash. But, we must not neglect the care of our cat’s ears.
