Cats are a popular pet, but research on their behavior and social skills is not yet very in-depth. This review introduces the behavioral habits of cats, including hunting behavior, sleep habits, cleanliness behavior, and estrus behavior; At the same time, the social abilities of cats were also explored, including their social interactions with humans and other cats. Through the research in this review, we found that cats exhibit strong individual differences in their behavioral habits and social abilities, with each cat having its own unique behavioral and social characteristics. The research results of this review provide better care and training recommendations for cat owners, as well as a foundation for us to better understand the behavior and social characteristics of cats.
