Question by PeacefulThunder: What to do about cat behavior problems?
My cat has always been a bit..odd, but lately his behavior has been worrying. He’ll jump up on a person’s lap, but if they move or talk he’ll growl at them and hiss, seeming very angry. He occasionally gets very scared and vocal around people, hissing and running away, and, again, acting angry. We’re worried that the behavior may escalate into aggression, since he’s so odd and unpredictable. Nobody who’s met him would describe him as “nice.” He just acts crazy.
We adopted him as a kitten, and have taken proper care of him. Why does he act like this towards people?
Answer by Jill E
If this was my cat I would add 10 drops of Bach’s Rescue Remedy to his water bowl each day and then stir the water with a spoon so it was well mixed in.
He would only need to take a couple of sips a day of the water for it to work.
It would calm him down and stop him being frightened and angry.
The good thing is you can do this without needing to know why his behaviour has changed. Sometimes cats are peculiar and it’s hard to work out exactly what it is they are having a problem with, but I’ve found the Rescue Remedy works really well.
