Tips for Cats with Anxiety
Every cat shows signs of anxiety in his own way. If you are noticing a change in your cat's behavior, it is important to evaluate the situation, put yourself in your cat's paws, and determine if something is bothering him. Some possible signs of anxiety are listed below:
- Changes in appetite or weight
- Excessive vocalizing
- Changes in elimination habits (such as urinating outside of the litter box)
- Compulsive behaviors or Excessive grooming
- Health changes
- New destructive behaviors (such as furniture scratching)
If your cat is showing signs of stress and anxiety, it is extremely important to see your veterinarian to rule out medical problems. If your cat is physically healthy, your veterinarian will help you take the next step in treating his stress.
