Does your feline buddy have a kitty meltdown whenever she spots the bottom of her food bowl? This is a pretty serious problem, as far as Fluffy is concerned … even if she did just have her third breakfast an hour ago. Empty food bowls aren’t the only thing that will send your cat into a state of kitty panic, however. A local Fort Myers, FL vet lists some of the other ones in this article.
Have you ever spotted your cat staring out the window, perhaps hissing, growling, or clicking her teeth at something? This is Fluffy’s ‘intruder alert’ stance. If the kitty next door is in your furball’s yard, it’s probably safe to say that your feline pal is going to feel very defensive and territorial. Birds and squirrels, on the other hand, will activate your furball’s inner lion.
Another thing that will get Fluffy going from 0 MPH to, well, 2MPH, in a moment is the appearance of an intruding, unauthorized critter. This could be a moth, bat, mouse, or even a snake. Your faithful pet will spring to action to protect you from the invader … or maybe just bat at it for fun.
Cats are very, very serious about their beauty rest. If you have to move your furry friend mid-nap, don’t be surprised if you hear a little meow of protest. Fluffy may also give you a dirty look. Huge faux paws!
It’s not exactly surprising that cats prefer their kingdoms be kept quiet. After all, they spend a rather ridiculous amount of time sleeping. If you make noise in the kitchen, expect Fluffy to immediately hightail it out of the room. The vacuum cleaner may also send your kitty into a tizzy.
We do everything that we can to make appointments easy on our feline patients. However, one thing we can’t do much about is the car ride. Most kitties are definitely homebodies who prefer staying in! (Sorry, Fluffy: it’s for your own good.) If your furry buddy melts down in the car, keep the window cracked and play soothing music on the radio. Pet-calming pheromones may also help. Ask your vet for specific advice.
