Scared Cats, Watch this Really Funny VideoKeith
Scared Cats videos totally freaking out.
Some cats become so frightened they lose control of their bladder or bowels and eject right where they are. Each cat has her preferred way of dealing with a crisis situation. You’ll notice that your cat probably tends to try one option first, and if that doesn’t work, she’s forced to try a different one. For instance, if your cat is afraid of dogs and a friend brings his dog to your home to visit, you might notice the following: first, your cat puffs out her fur to make herself look big, then hisses and spits at the dog. If the dog doesn’t retreat, your cat may flee the situation, find a hiding spot, and freeze until she deems the situation safe.
- Aggression (spitting, hissing, growling, piloerection, swatting, biting, scratching)
- Loss of control over bladder and/or bowels
- Freezing in place
It’s normal for you to want to help and comfort your scared cats when they are frightened. However, this isn’t necessarily the best thing to do from your cat’s point of view. It’s normal for a cat to feel insecure or frightened in a new environment. Often, your new cat will hide for a day or two when you first bring her home. Sometimes a traumatic experience like a visit to the veterinarian, or introducing a new animal into the household, can disrupt her routine and send her under the bed for a few days.
