Cat who does not love his owner: the signs that do not deceive

There is little doubt if the cat behaves in any of the following ways as soon as its guardian approaches it:

  • He hisses,
  • He blows and spits,
  • He runs away,
  • He hides under a piece of furniture,
  • It attacks, scratches and / or bites.

The body language is the perfect witness allowing a person to know that they are in the crosshairs of their cat. Indeed, when he approaches, he adopts an explicit attitude, namely:

  • Its tail curls between its hind legs, suggesting an immediate attack,
  • Its tail stands up in aggression,
  • His pupils dilate,
  • He has round eyes,

  • His hair stands on end,
  • His back is arched, which shows a feeling of fear …

  • His weaning was too fast or too early,
  • He feels suffocated by a too cuddly breeder,
  • The animal is systematically disturbed when it aspires to be alone or when it simply wants to sleep,
  • His master speaks badly to him,
  • The animal was the victim of mistreatment,
  • The master was absent for several days / weeks (vacation, hospitalization, etc.) so that the cat felt abandoned.

Remote chat with your tutor: what to do?

There is no point in rushing things to gain some consideration for your animal. This would only amplify the bad relationship between the man and the twink. We must act with discernment and always respect his personality because not all cats are cuddly. Some are distant, extremely independent and will remain so no matter what. This distance does not necessarily mean that they do not like their master.

If, on the other hand, despite all his efforts, the breeder is sure that his cat does not like him, he will have to redouble his efforts by starting with be patient. He must take time each day to talk to his cat gently and not to rebuff him all the time, but also to leave him alone when his little companion only wants to be alone to rest or wash.

It is very important toestablish a relationship of trust for example by playing so that, little by little, the little animal gets closer to its master. For this, it is better to avoid any situation that could generate stress because the little feline is very sensitive to it. It may take some time for the kitty to be receptive to affection and accept a connection. As a last resort, we can rely on a veterinarian behaviorist to take stock and gather valuable advice.
