1. To Ascertain the Reason why cat is Anxious: The first thing you need to do is trying to figure out the reason of anxious cat. If you don’t know what caused your cat to be anxious, you won’t be able to treat it successfully. Normally, cat owners are almost inseparable from their pets and can determine the root cause of their problems without difficulty. If anxiety is triggered by a specific event, then the simplest thing is to eliminate or reduce this effect. In fact, such opportunities are slim, but you can take other measures to help your cat cope with his anxiety and stress.
2. Check Cat’s Environment: Just like humans need peace and calm environment, so do cats when they are stressed. Turn off the TV to ensure that any sound is kept to a minimum. Let your cat rest in a quiet place and make it as comfortable as possible. At the same time, you should give your cat its own room so that it can find its own harbor whenever it wants. In addition, provide it with a suitable cat scratching board. Grabbing things is a way to relieve stress for anxious cat. Also make sure that your cat has easy access to food and water. It is generally not recommended to fundamentally change the cat’s diet. However, when a cat is stressed, its food may be a little too rich to digest properly. It may be helpful to switch to a mild diet in a short period of time. There are also cat foods specially formulated for sensitive stomachs. Also, remember that if your cat does engage in misconduct, please do not shout or hit him, which will increase the anxiety of cat.
3. Spend a Good Time with Your Anxious Cat: Spending some “one-on-one” time, sitting quietly and looking at your cat can help it feel at ease. Gently fondling your cat from beginning to end also helps it relax its nerves. And make sure that your cat gets enough exercise and mental stimulation. Encourage your cat to play with various cat toys. You can also try some fresh toys every few days so that your cat will not get bored. You can also buy some cat toys that contain catnip. Just be careful to observe the anxious cat reaction to catnip, because it may stimulate the aggressive behavior of male cats.
4. Check Cat’s Health: Last but not least, it is very important to ensure that your vaccination, flea and deworming treatments are up to date. Check your cat for any injuries, and check for ear mites. If you have any questions about the health of your cat, you should always consult your local veterinarian for inspection. It is likely that a blood test is needed to assess whether there is a potential disease that causes cat anxiety.
As long as we can take care of those cats with anxiety patiently and carefully, we will be able to regain their confidence and make them become independent again!
