Cats communicate through natural messages released in the air (called pheromones).

These feline odorless messages are only perceived by other cats. People and dogs are not affected.  

There are 3 kinds of feline messages

Cat feels comfortable

“Happy Messages”

When comfortable and happy, cats mark their territory as familiar by rubbing their face against corners, furniture, people, or other cats at home. They leave an odorless message known as a feline facial pheromone. When present in the environment, these "happy messages" provide comfort and security to cats.

Cats communicate with other cats through natural messages left in their territory. When they scratch an object in their territory they leave "territory messages". This provides a visual message (scratch marks) and the "territory message" says that "this is mine".
