How to spot stress and anxiety in cats

Noticing unusual, stressed behaviour in cats isn’t complicated, especially if your pet has always had a rather calm and normal behaviour. You might notice them facing trembling and shaking scenarios. Over grooming is also something that cats tend to do when they are feeling stressed, which might lead to bald spots or cracked skin. Things can become even more worrying if you don’t start seeking the right cat calming solutions. Your cat might become aggressive towards you, other people or animals. They might no longer use their litter box, suffer from diarrhoea, constipation or inappropriate soiling could happen, not to mention repetitive vocalisations and increased “clinginess”. If you have spotted any of these symptoms, it’s clear that your cat is going through an anxiety episode and you should help them by learning how to treat the issue and prevent its reoccurrence.

How to treat & prevent cat anxiety

Start by assessing your cat’s living situation and environment and make sure you have ruled out any potential stressor. If you are aware of the exact cause of the problem, it will be easier for you to treat it successfully. When possible, it’s recommended to eliminate the root of the problem entirely. Make sure your cat has a safe space to retreat, their litter box is always clean, their health is in check, they have easy access to food, water and litter tray, and overall create an optimal pet environment. It’s also highly recommended to use Feliway for cats and Feliway Friends for cats (used for multi cat households), which are plug-in diffusers that release natural pheromones in your home which have a calming, soothing effect, treating anxiety and stress rapidly and effectively and also ensuring proper prevention in the future. Besides a Feliway diffuser, you can also get a cat calming spray such as Feliway Spray, to treat cat anxiety even better and more rapidly and is useful for travel. Considering your cat is part of the family, knowing they are happy is probably a highly important aspect for you, so adopt the right approach here, stressed cat will become a happy and relaxed cat.
