Cat Acting Different&scared Of Everything

October 28th, 2006, 11:41 AM
Lately My Indoor Cat Has Begun To Randomly Get Scared Of Common Things Like Blankets, Shoes, Jackets Or Sometimes It Seems Nothing And He Will Jump Up, Run Away And Hiss At Everything. Or He'll Be Cuddeling With Me And For No Reason Get Upset By The Shirt I'm Wearing And Hiss At It Then Run Away. With This He Has Also Stopped Being Cuddely And Friendly Like He Has Been For The Past 10 Years!! I Know That About A Couple Weeks Ago He Suffered A Hit To The Head But I Don't Think That Could Be Causing Him To Act Like This Can It?! He Has Begun To Drink Alot More Water And Eating Alot More But I'm Not Sure If That Would Be Related. Other Than That He's Normal Like He's Always Been. What Should I Do? Is It Just Because He's Getting Old?

You should take him to the vet right away. Changes in behaviour often indicate physical problems. Don't forget to tell the vet that he is eating and drinking more - could be a sign of hyperthyroidism.

With animals, there is a reason for everything.
