It will have happened many times to your cat to hear a sudden noise, or to see a dog nearby. If they stand on end and arch their backs, as if to grow up, while their tail swells, they are frightened. They manifest the fear so. It is not a question of fear in the true sense of the word or even of a state of anxiety, what the cat feels is a continuous state of hyper-vigilance, a constant alert to any possible source of danger.
Do you know why the cat goes from fear to calm in an instant? It is able to go from a sudden fright to go back to sleep in a few seconds.
Because they live on real fears, so at the moment the danger arises. They are frightened by things they do not know and whose reaction they fear.
The cat, being a predatory animal, is used to living being always alert, ready to defend itself and to hunt. They are not like us humans who are afraid even of imaginary things.
This also explains why cats are afraid of change. They love to live in environments they know, of which they are able to prevent the dangers.
The same happens even if we adopt a kitten and already have a dog in the house. The newcomer will learn to discover the dog's behavior slowly and will not be afraid of its reactions. But if the opposite happens, it would be trauma for the cat.
In addition to manifesting fear by arching the back, straightening the hair, puffing up the tail, lowering the ears, flattening on the ground, the cat also expresses fear by going into hiding. It is able to remain hidden under a bed even for whole days.
What are your cats afraid of? Anyone who has a cat at home will be able to understand what happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned on.
Since the cat has a particularly developed hearing, the noise of the vacuum cleaner is perceived as something unpleasant.
A person who loves cats considers certain daily attitudes to be "normal", those who do not love them so much look with suspicion. Every person who lives and loves cats must have done at least one of the things in the photos that follow, at some point in their life.
