Cats also have emotions. Studies conducted by veterinarians and animal behaviorists have established physiological and behavior evidence that felines do experience various emotions.
Cats have been shown to undergo the same biochemical changes in the brain that humans do in response to emotions like nervousness or pleasure; they also respond to neurotransmitters that regulate moods, such as serotonin and dopamine.
Some medications which have been prescribed for mood disorders in people, have also been demonstrated to exert an effect on the moods of cats.
Cats can also experience grief and depression.
Both humans and cats display similar effects as a result of damage to specific structures in the brain that regulate anxiety, fear, rage, and other emotions.
Like you, your pet can also experience sadness, anger, fear, anxiety, jealousy, love, excitement, and affection.
