Cats are incredibly expressive creatures even though they can't actually "talk". Here's how your cat speaks to you without actually using worlds.

1. Their tails are signals.

If a cat has its tail raised he or she is excited to see you, but a tail held low is a sign of fear.

2. Their pupils change size.

Dilated pupils are a sign of playful excitement.

3. Their ears are pinned back.

This is a sign of fear.
