      Although some cats do not like to be held, but most cats are still very happy, first of all you have to make it comfortable and safe in your arms, and cats do not like to be held for too long, we have to master the proportion. Cats are sensitive and wary, when hugging cats also need to be careful about the method, or it is easy to be scratched.

  1. When holding a cat, you must always use your hand to hold the cat's body: If you hold the cat in an incorrect way, holding the cat's front legs with your hand while the rest of the cat's body hangs upside down in mid-air, a patient cat will wag its tail to show its displeasure; and a less docile cat may struggle or even bite in order to escape.

  2. The correct posture is especially important when grabbing kittens. Because the kitten's chest cavity is fragile, it is very easy to bruise. Special care is also needed when picking up a sick cat. If you hold the cat while petting it, it will remove the wariness. Once the cat starts to resist, put it down immediately.

  3. Be careful when approaching the cat and do not reach out and grab it suddenly. It is best to let the cat approach you of its own accord. Let it get used to the gentle touch before picking it up.

  4. Hold the cat with one hand on its chest and the other hand on the back of its body, so that its chest cavity rests on the palm of your hand. Pick up the cat gently and slowly approach your chest. Be careful to hold the back of the body steady.
