The first step to keeping animals calm is understanding their way of communicating with us humans. We’ve covered the important cues to dog behavior in our Body Language of Fear in Dogs poster. Now we have those same cues in poster form for cats!

This informative tool can now be downloaded as a pdf, which means you can print out as many as you need to. If you would like to see this poster in another language, we’d love that too! For that, we need your volunteer assistance. Please go to our Poster Translation Page to fill out a contact form for approval to do a translation. If you’d like to purchase our handouts of this poster i Keep an eye out for the Body Language of Feline Anxiety as one of our large format wall decals in our Zazzle store, coming soon!
