Default Why Do cats sulk?

Humans are huge to a cat. When you scold him, you are intimidating him. And when you look down upon a cat to discipline him, he associates your fixed gaze with a rival. The eyes of many animals are a signal of power. In comparison to a cat's size, his eyes are enormous. In hostile situations, a dominant cat will stare at his rival, who will look away rather than increase the hostility. So when your cat turns away after disciplining, he isn't ignoring you; he's surrendering.

Now I know why my cats turn away when I look down at them, they always surrender. I thought at first they were just uninterested. Thanks for the trivia.

Very true. Ive learnt to tell the difference now between him surrendering and when hes just being plain old ignorant. Lol. Sometimes when he knows Im talking to him he will look at me and then stick his nose in the air and look away.
