Difference between false cat aggression and real aggression — 2 Comments

  1. A brilliant article Michael! You are right, a cat never becomes aggressive for no reason, he is either frightened or in pain and I don’t even think a cat in pain will seriously attack his caretaker if they have built up trust between them.
    A good caretaker will realise his cat is in pain and be very gentle with him.
    Some people stare a cat in the face, that is challenging to a cat, then they wonder why the cat scratches or bites them.
    Education about cats is sadly lacking 🙁

  2. This is a great article Michael. It’s a very important subject – this can often be the barrier between a person connecting with and understanding cats properly leading to them deciding a cat is aggressive or untouchable.

    Alot of people just don’t know how to ‘listen to’ and ‘read’ cats for what they are – instead they project and completely miss what’s really going on with the cat. After that it just gets worse because there is constant misunderstanding – the cat is always the one who loses out in this kind of thing.
