The first step to keeping animals calm is understanding their way of communicating with us humans. We’ve covered the important cues to dog behavior in our Body Language of Fear in Dogs poster. Now we have those same cues in poster form for cats! You can download one for free (or a donation) from our store. Just click on the picture, or the link below.

  1. FOR THE PAST WEEK MY CAT HAS BEEN ACTING STRANGE. SHE HAS BEEN GOING TO THE LITTER BOX FREQUENTLY BUT NOT DOING ANYTHING. SHE GOES OUT AT NIGHT WHEN I AM HOME. I LIVE ON A QUIET STREET AND THERE ARE OTHER CATS
    FROM HER LITTER WHO LIVE AROUND THE CORNER FROM ME BUT LATELY SHE TRIES TO GO OUT DURING THE DAY AND WILL EVENT CRY IF SHE CAN’T. SHE I BRING HER TO THE VET?

  2. How would I make my cat trust me? Everytime when anyone (including myself) gets near her she runs away and she’s always on edge. I’ve tried to get her to calm down by playing with her but she has no interest in it but she has enough energy to run away from people all the time. She has mostly all the signs that were mentioned on the body language poster for anxiety in cats. However I have no clue how to make her more at ease and less scared 24/7.

  3. A house call veterinarian check up’ increased perches, hide the food to encourage hunting and follow the veterinarian’s suggestion for medication and behavior consult, is needed. From what you described, your cat has chronic stress which may cause health problems.

  4. It can be very hard to tell what is wrong when my cat shows aggressive behavior towards me. I really was trying to think about what I was doing to cause her to want to get ready to attack me in my face. I thought that maybe she did not want me to stop petting her. She shows signs that she loves to be petted but I lessen the time I pet her because I don’t want to overstimulate her which can lead her to want to bite me and so forth. Would like someone to give me some advice as I really love my cat. I do not want to abandon her and give her back to the shelter I got her from. She has had four owners besides me already. Maybe at least one abused her so therefore she has anger issues and can be moody.
