People use the phrase “scared cat” because cats can be scared by almost anything. Loud noises, unfamiliar faces, new furniture, or a new place to live can cause fear or panic in ordinary cats.
Recently I looked at my cat’s behavior and thought: “This is the strangest thing. My cat is scared of something I can’t see. But your cat is terrified and nervous now.” Cats have heightened senses. Thanks to these keen senses, cats can notice things that ordinary people cannot see and be afraid of. Therefore, nothing is surprising because the cat may be frightened of what we do not notice.
My cat is scared of something I can’t see, but I really don’t know what scared him. It’s one of the most common problems veterinarians hear about from cat owners. If this happens to your kitten, you must try to figure out what scares him.
