I just wanted to say that your cat does that because he/she thinks you are speaking to them. Some cats think you're speaking to them when you're on
the phone because they obviously don't see anyone else so you must be talking to them. They hear your voice and no one else.
If the attack happens while you're on the phone and facing the other direction, then your cat doesn't think you're talking to them, they're
attacking you because they want your attention, especially if you're on the phone for a long period of time. Remember, what you don't consider a
long time, your cat probably does.
Attacking you to get your attention may be due to a number of reasons. Perhaps they want to play, or they recently were playing and they lost their
toy and need your help finding it. Maybe it's nap time and they want you to put them to bed (yes, some cats actually try to get your attention to
put them to bed). If it's not play time or nap time, maybe it's dinner time and you're running late in feeding them? If the cat usually drinks
water from the faucet, then they're attacking so you will turn on the faucet.
It could be any one of those reasons, and plenty more. They could even be attacking you because they don't feel well and want you to make them feel
Many people understand dogs far better than cats because they think cats don't communicate as good as dogs. This is simply not true. Cats can be
trained just like dogs to do tricks as well as have a good vocabulary where they understand the meaning of many words and phrases.
If you think about it, since you know your cat, I'm sure you can figure out why your cat is attacking you. Let us know!
