Your cat’s behaviour is closely related to the natural behaviour of the species and is a normal part of predation, play and social conflict. However, if a cat starts to show aggression towards humans it’s important to establish what the cat’s motivation for the behaviour is and whether, in context, it is normal or abnormal.
Aggression is a consequence of an emotional state and could be related to social pressures, fear, anxiety or frustration. It could be inappropriate play or as a result of pain or an illness. In any event, it’s important to take your cat to the vet to investigate the cause so either an appropriate treatment can be provided or behavioural advice and guidance can be offered.
Take a look at the ICC website for more information on your cat’s behaviour HERE and if you would like some help and guidance on your cat’s behaviour, request a questionnaire and book in for a behaviour consultation.
