Do Cats Imprint on Humans?

If you have a cat or kitten, you may have wondered, “Do cats imprint on humans?” Since kittens are not born with the ability to do anything other than sleep, you would expect that they wouldn’t learn how to do it. However, it has been proven that when a cat and a person share the same room, they will imprint on each other.

It is believed that cats sleep differently so if you place them next to each other they will understand what is happening in their environment. Since they are so different, when you feed them, they may look at you differently or think of you differently. When you pick them up they may run away. Kittens also have a fear of water. If you give them water or a dish of water, they will run off because they don’t trust you.

This also shows that cats imprint on humans based on the way that we show affection to them. We pet them, talk to them and they know and get along with us. If a cat is in a room with an unfamiliar individual they may be afraid, but if they see their owner talking to them, then they will trust the person and like that person. They learn to like and trust people, rather than being fearful of them.

You will see that when you show affection to a cat and they look at you and show affection, they are rewarded. A kitten does this more often than an adult cat, as kittens don’t have the need for physical affection yet. They also like to look at and touch things. As they grow older, you will see that they will start to show affection toward you more and will play with you more.

You also want to reward your cat when they behave in a certain way or get good rewards for their behavior. Rewards can be as simple as a pat on the head or a ball. Cats love to be rewarded and it makes them want to repeat that behavior. It might sound strange but when cats are rewarded for simple things, they will actually enjoy it more. If you start to notice your cat getting better, then you will begin to understand how to teach your cat to do what you want it to.
