Cats, like humans, experience a wide range of emotions that can directly affect the way they behave.
A happy feline is going to conduct themselves differently to one who is maybe stressed or upset for instance.
When a cat starts “acting out” this is generally a sign that something is not quite right in their world, physically and/or psychologically.
Anybody who has lived with a misbehaving cat will tell you how much of a handful they can be, but it is always worth remembering that persistent bad behavior will inevitably be the result of an underlying cause.
Cat behavior problems are extremely common. For some felines an uncharacteristic change in mood may only last a few minutes. For others it may continue for weeks.
Early intervention can prevent the latter from occurring, and should hopefully set your feline on a path to even better behavior.
