Tips for Cat Aggression

tips-for-cat-aggression

Recent studies have found that aggression is a behavior issue that is common in most cats, and often people will try over the counter drugs like Benadryl for cats.

Unfortunately, there is no direct solution to aggression, and several reasons may cause it. It can sometimes be accompanied by a change in diet, in which case your vet might prescribe Mirtazapine for cats.

Cat aggression may lead to injuries or an owner possibly surrendering the pet to a shelter.

Here are a few useful tips to help you learn and understand what may be the cause of your cat’s aggression: 

WHY IS MY CAT AGGRESSIVE?

Different types of behavior will help determine your cat’s aggression pattern. For example, studies show that unsocialized kittens often suffer from play aggression. As babies, kittens learn by playing with their siblings. When a kitten doesn’t get this opportunity, they won’t know some boundaries with their owners.

Another type of aggression your pet may be suffering from is fear. Most times, aggression and anxiety are results of your cat coming into contact with a new person, pet, experience, or unfamiliar place.

Research shows that when a cat is suffering from anxiety or aggression, they remain in a seated posture with their ears pointed outward and tail placed under the body.

Also, give your cat the proper time to introduce a new person in the setting. Uninvited petting or touching is another factor that leads to aggression.  

WHAT TO DO WITH AN AGGRESSIVE CAT

It is essential to know and understand the personality of your cat. Some cats may enjoy human affection and love petting, while other cats may not enjoy it as much.

Overstimulation is also a factor that leads to cat aggression, and it can also lead to cat hiccups; this is why it’s essential to pay attention to any signs your pet may give you. For example, when petting your cat and you notice their tail wagging and pupils becoming dilated, that is a clear sign that you should stop the petting and give your cat space to cool down.  

HOW TO CALM AN AGGRESSIVE CAT

Always talk to your veterinarian first before attempting to solve the issue on your own. Since different factors may lead to aggression, your veterinarian needs to rule out any medical problems.

Once your cat has been adequately evaluated, and have ruled out all underlying therapeutic factors, the next step is to identify what is contributing to the aggressive behavior. During this process, it is essential to take your time and remain patient.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to your veterinarian or a licensed professional if the problem persists, or you cannot identify your cat’s cause of aggression.
