Recognizing Signs of Cat Anxiety
Pet owners sometimes don’t believe that anxiety could affect their beloved cats. After all, cats don’t have to hold down a job and pay the bills. What is there to be anxious about? And in comparison to dogs, cats are a little more subtle about showing their insecurities, but they are suffering nonetheless.
“If your cat’s anxiety is mild and she seems otherwise healthy, there are a few things you can try before calling the vet.”
What is Cat Anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, uneasiness or apprehension, which is normal under certain circumstances but can become a problem if it becomes severe or occurs at inappropriate times. A few of the more common situations that can cause a cat to become anxious include:
- Separation from her owner, even for just a short period of time
- Moving to a new home
- The addition of a new family member (spouse, child or pet)
The symptoms of an anxious cat can be subtle and easy to attribute to other causes. Cats may
- Hide more than normal
- Greet owners exuberantly when they return home and follow them from room to room
- Urinate or defecate outside of the litter box
- Compulsively groom themselves, sometimes to the point where they are virtually bald over a large part of the body
Of course other diseases, including some that are very serious, can cause these symptoms.
