Why is my cat aggressive towards my other cat and me?

This problem can be solved many ways but the most common for this is that your cat may have a medical problem. Cat Aggression problems can be caused by medical problems so first take your cat to you veterinarian, who will perform a physical examination of your cat. Alleviation of medical conditions often resolves the aggressive behavior of your cat. If your cat is fine (healthy that is), determine what kind of aggression your cat is displaying in order to formulate a good strategy, and ultimately, a solution.

How do I stop my kittens from biting and scratching me when we play?

It's normal for your kitten to want to play by scratching and biting so don't be too worried about it. Biting and scratching during play time is typical and is look at as "play aggression," a behavior most commonly observed in young cats and kittens. When you play with your kitten just make you play with a distance between your hands and the kitten, so your cat has no opportunity to bite or scratch you.

For example:

Toss moving objects like ping-pong balls, walnuts, or aluminum foil balls for your cat to chase them or Provide climbing perches, scratching posts, and ball toys that deliver food when batted about. This will reduce all of the aches and pains guaranteed.

Why does my cat get very agitated whenever someone new comes into my house?

This is a sign of "fear aggression," a defensive behavior towards unfamiliar people, animals, noises and even new places. Unpleasant experiences, like a trip to the veterinarian's office, may also trigger fear aggression in your cat. With a fear aggressive cat there are two things I recommend you not do.

First, do not console your cat! By trying to calm your cat down with a low tone and petting it does nothing but lets the cat think that you approve of their inappropriate behavior and that is not the case.

Secondly, when visitors come to your home tell them to not retreat or show any fear in front of a fear aggressive cat, because this teaches the cat that her behavior can make unwanted visitors go away. Lack of attention is a better strategy and it will work a lot better.

Why does my cat growls and hisses when I try to move her off my bed?

This cat aggression problem is your cat attempting to control the situation through status-induced aggression. Other examples include cats that block doorways, or solicit attention from their owner. The signs of this kind of aggression include tail swishing, flattened ears, dilated pupils, growling, and hissing. You must ignore the cat's demands for play, food and attention, and make sure that any rewards must be given when the cat is relaxed (a relaxed cat holds her tail up, has normal sized pupils, and does not swat). The most effective reaction to status-induced aggression is to just ignore your cat completely.
