Why does my cat stare at other cats?

As you know, cats are territorial and they will not take an invader pretty well. Using body language is the primary way in which cats communicate. Staring at a tresspasser is a way of establishing dominance and aggression.

If a cat notices another cat just staring at him, then he will approach the potential danger to establish who is the strongest one. It is important to know that cats do not need to blink in order to get their eyes lubricated. Humans, on the other hand, have to lubricate all the time. This basically puts you at a disadvantage on a staring contest as cats can stare for a significant amount of time without blinking.

When your kitty is staring straight at you, it is impossible to ignore. But far from being awkward, you feel like your cat is studying you. He is definitively not challenging you to a starting contest which you would fail at epically, as we explained earlier.

Cats love us and hence follow us everywhere. Even if you go to the kitchen for a cup of coffee, your feline companion will be there trying to be a part of every single detail of your life. When he stares at you he probably is studying your every movement.

You kittie knows that at some point, those movements he is so closely studying will, at some point, benefit him. Either way, if you find your cat staring at you, stare back and give her an affectionate look.
