Here is some information on common causes of behaviour changes;
- Defensive/fear aggression – If a cat can’t escape when there is a perceived threat, it will defend itself if it can’t escape
- Play & petting aggression – Cats like short and frequent interaction which is normal feline social etiquette, sometimes we interact with them less often and with more intensity which can be a bit much for some cats
- Territorial aggression – Usually occurs when 2 cats meet on disputed ground
- Pain-induces aggression – A cat in pain will generally have reduced tolerance levels.
