Analysis of cat attacking human behavior
Cats are demons?
It’s a daunting thing to watch an angry cat. Even if you’ve never really seen it up close, I think you’ve seen it in some scary movies. A bad tempered cat opened its big mouth, showed its sharp teeth, its ears fell back, its eyes were staring and its pupils were dilated. Even growls and boos are not pleasant.
Understanding the causes of cat’s different aggressive behaviors and learning and recognizing warning signals may help you cope with emergencies when cats attack.
Sometimes, their attack seems to have no sign, but usually there are a lot of warning messages before the attack. Knowing these signals and learning to recognize them can prevent some of the pain of being bitten or scratched. Some physical information of cat’s attack (or potential attack) is mainly shown as follows:
¡¤Keep your eyes open.
¡¤Pupil enlargement (if threatened) or extremely constricted (when the cat tries to fight back).
¡¤Keep your ears flat.
¡¤Tail straight or whipped, tail hairs erect.
¡¤From restless meow to growl or howl.
¡¤Hissing and sometimes even spitting.
Behaviorists classify cat attacks on humans according to the causes of the attacks. This enables us to have a deeper understanding of the underlying causes of cat behavior, thus making it possible to find good solutions. Here are the five aggressive behaviors that cats show.
Fear induces aggression
When cats feel scared, their “fight back or escape” reaction mechanism is activated. Most cats tend to run away from danger (real and imagined), but if they are cornered or have no place to run for other reasons, they will choose to attack. When there is no escape, even shy or timid cats will choose to attack.
An attack triggered by fear
If we understand the causes of fear, it’s very easy for us to identify. Sometimes, the reasons are not obvious. A timid cat may be afraid of all the threats it imagines, such as sudden sounds or movements. In addition, your cat may have experienced something before, causing it to be hurt, making it particularly afraid of something or phenomenon that we don’t pay special attention to. In addition, fear induced aggression is also a cat’s natural response to punishment, especially physical punishment. Cats don’t learn anything from any form of punishment and condemnation of dogs and children, they don’t correct their mistakes, they just fear you more and are more violent.
No matter what the initial motive is, if cats can’t resist the source of attack through revenge, they will transfer the emotion to the nearest person or other animal (dog, other cat, etc.). Your cat may be sitting in front of the window when suddenly it finds a dog, raccoon or another cat. The cat starts to show excitement, but because it is confined indoors, it can’t make any meaningful response to perceived danger. At this moment, when the cat is focused on the threat outside, you happen to pass by and caress its head. That’s not to blame the cat for suddenly killing you or attacking you. All the aggressive emotions that have been suppressed for a long time are released on attacks that you think have no reason.
Pain leads to aggression
For humans, this is probably the easiest type of attack to understand. The poor kitten is in pain, so, naturally, it gets upset and tries to attack everyone around him. You may have the same feeling, when kittens go through the more painful procedures of the veterinarian, they sometimes show this situation. After all, it doesn’t understand that this is for its own good, but for the sake of protecting itself from harm. Sometimes it is very difficult to find out what causes the pain of a cat’s attack. You may hurt your cats when you pick them up or when you dress them up. Cats’ skin is very sensitive and has caused pain to them when we may not be aware of it.
Attacks caused by caressing
This attack is one of the most familiar situations for cat owners. Your cat lies peacefully beside you, praying for your caress, and you begin to caress it gently. At first, the cat purrs with satisfaction, but within a few minutes, the purr begins to stop slowly, and its tail begins to twitch. Suddenly, your cat turns around and grabs your arm, leaving a tooth mark and claw mark. This is a very common cat behavior pattern, but it is difficult to explain why some cats are more sensitive to caressing than others. Anyway, it looks like some cats are intimidated by too long caressing and become over excited. But how long is too long for each cat is not clear. If you often live with such sensitive cats, you will soon know the exact length of time.
Disease induced aggression
It may also be a medical problem that cats become aggressive. Aggressive behavior may be associated with meningiomas in cats, cerebral thrombosis syndrome, rabies and toxoplasmosis. Therefore, for any sudden onset and gradual increase of unprovoked violence, you should first consult your veterinarian about medical reasons. You know your cat best, so you should pay attention to any changes in its behavior as part of the cat’s lifestyle and health assessment. Among these diseases, rabies is the most dangerous because it is dangerous to transmit to people and is usually fatal. If you suspect that a cat is violent (whether it’s your cat or someone else’s) that may be related to rabies, you must contact your doctor or veterinarian immediately.
Maybe many cat owners don’t get scratched or bitten for these reasons, but most of them happen when they are playing. When they scratch you, sometimes it means they are flattering you, just like their love bites when they are playing with each other. It feels the same, but it’s different from a real attack, which we’ll discuss in other articles.
What do you do when your cat grabs you with its claws and teeth and attacks you? Fight hard and try to break free, it will only make you really get scratched or bitten. On the contrary, if you keep calm all the time, and you don’t move, you don’t try to pry the cat’s mouth open, you don’t hit it or yell at it. Don’t make a lot of noise Instead, with your other hand, gently touch the front of its claw, then the tip of its claw, until it is released, and speak to it gently and treat it calmly. Then, instead of pulling back your hands quickly, get up and leave it, but continue to caress it, just keep your hands away from its teeth and claws as much as possible. Let the cat sit down in its place and, when it is calm, carefully ease it down. Then when your cat is completely calm, you can leave it safely.
¡¤Castrate your cat
If an aggressive cat is a healthy male, you should castrate it as soon as possible. Although attacks from territory are usually directed against other cats, the attacks are often passed on to people. In addition, sterilization can help to solve the problem of male cats running away from home, wandering out and injured in the fight against counterfeit goods. In addition, it can control the growing problem of cat mouth expansion.
Stress may be the root cause of many behavioral problems, including attacking the host. When a cat is nervous, almost any kind of attack can get worse. Stress is due to changes in the cat’s environment. The cat becomes nervous about these changes, and each cat’s reaction is not always the same.
¡¤Don’t punish the cat for its aggressive behavior!
Punishing the cat may add pressure and make the cat more aggressive.
Cat aggression is also a very serious problem sometimes. If you feel that things are getting out of control, please contact your veterinarian immediately and ask him to help you consult a domestic cat behavior expert.
Your veterinarian or animal behaviorist may suggest that you use medication to deal with an aggressive cat, especially if the attack problem is not caused by the disease. This is a common strategy for animal behavior experts.
The memory of cats is very poor. Many owners give names to cats, but cats can’t remember them. That’s why so many people train dogs instead of cats. Secondly, cats don’t have any feelings and dependence on their owners. They just regard their owners as the source of food resources
I don’t know what kind of cat you are. How old is it? Different cats have different estrus. I think it may be estrus. Then they go out and talk about a subject. Then they come back. Cats like to rub on their owners, especially with their heads. In fact, they are marking you, just like dogs urinating. It’s the same reason that dogs urinate. Don’t talk about going out for a period of time, those cats who don’t keep free are not careful If you run out, you don’t know the owner
It’s not a change of attitude towards you, it’s not remembering you at all… Don’t think it’s heartless and immature… Because the cat is not a dog… Because it has a bad memory, its habits are different… But it shows that it trusts you by exposing its belly. Secondly, if you touch it, it makes a snoring sound, which means that it is very satisfied now. The cat will blow its hair or emit something like a snake Ha ~ ha ~ the voice is not in the murderous master, but it is sending out a signal of stability. It thinks that people close to him are aggressive to him. He wants to calm the other party down and not hurt him. His dog will also send out a stable signal. However, most owners don’t know the body language of animals, so they think they are punishing them by murderers
My family has a blue and white cat for a long time. I feel that the cat is really realistic. When I eat, I always lean on you and show my kindness to you. After eating the meal, the stomach is comfortable. No matter how you call it, it just doesn’t hear it. It’s just: someone has something to do, and nobody has anything to do with it! Cat is also considered as the other side of human nature. It recognizes money but does not recognize people. It knows how to ambush secretly. It likes to do secret things. It is known as the harmony of human beings. The joy of keeping a cat is that when it is plotting against you, you can always find out and guard against it. In this way, cats are all good teachers of human beings. You can learn the truth of being a man from this teacher. Raising a cat is also a knowledge!

Why do cats like to pat each other with their little paws when fighting? Is it really useful?
Cat is a very cute little creature, cute appearance, crisp call, let people love. From time to time with innocent big eyes to look at the master, and then a crooked head to kill, not to mention how silly. Does this kind of little guy grow up eating cute? Soft and cute appearance gives a noble, elegant feeling, of course, it also gives people a harmless feeling. How can such a cute, cute and gentle animal be fierce? Even the fight is to use two small claws tentatively to pat each other, which is too implicit, shovel excrement officer must love the cat more. Take a look at the dog’s fighting way, directly is to use the mouth, clean and neat, never sloppy. Can the soft and cute cat protect itself?
Although the cat’s small paws are hairy and cute, which excrement removing officer is not prostrate under these fleshy little claws? However, the hairy meat mat is hidden inside the extremely sharp nail, the tip of the nail is the most sharp part of the curve, which can easily hook each other. Usually, it’s just a little meatball, which makes people love it. The owner likes to touch this furry little paw. However, once a cat shows sharp nails, it is not a fluffy little cute. Owners who have raised cats all know how powerful it is to be caught by a cat. A lot of excrement removal officers will leave a long, deep bloodstain on the owner’s hand when they accidentally touch the cat’s bottom line or when the cat overreacts. You know what the cat’s paws are.
Cats slap each other with their small paws in a fight. This is actually their own sense of self-protection. Just like when people are beaten, their first reaction is to fight back with their backhands. So is the cat. Why bully Ben meow for no reason? Hum, fight back! What’s more, cats are not afraid of the owner, especially for the invasion of the outside world is to go forward, never give in, the more frustrated the more brave. Although looking at the cat’s small claws are weak, in fact, the speed of the cat is still very fast, Pa Pa Pa Pa, shadowless palm can fan each other’s hands and feet, plus the sharp nails, I feel terrible. It doesn’t hurt to be beaten by a cat. I don’t see how many times the owner is bigger than the cat. Can a small mouse stand the slap of a cat like this?
The cat’s four small claws are very flexible. The living habit of living alone has trained the cat to be sensitive and capable. When social animals capture prey, they will cooperate with each other to subdue the prey together. As many people have great power, catching and hunting is relatively simple. But cats are different. Cats are solitary animals. When catching prey, they can only rely on themselves. Observe the movement of the prey in advance, find a hidden and convenient position to attack, and when the time is ripe, they will take the initiative to attack the enemy. This makes the cat’s claws very flexible, just like human hands.
In fact, the way cats subdue their prey with their claws is very clever. Just like a dog, whether it is catching prey or fighting, the first thing to hurt each other is the mouth. Although biting is a very powerful way of attack, it also has two very fatal disadvantages, that is, slow speed and short attack distance. Moreover, when attacking each other, they often show their weakest side in front of their opponents. Therefore, these gregarious animals will set out together to subdue their prey. Otherwise, it is difficult to win with their own strength. Cats are different. First attack each other with small claws. When the other party is slightly relaxed, find the right time and bite it with its mouth. In this way, it can protect itself and quickly subdue its prey. Of course, this is also a cat as a solitary animal must have the ability, cats are not very smart.
When cats fight, they don’t slap each other with their paws blindly, but they attack each other’s face with pertinence. Because the face is the most vulnerable part, the eyes, mouth and even nose have less hair and are more vulnerable to injury. But the dog’s paws can not complete such a task, only the teeth can fight, so the dog can only attack each other with his mouth. Dog’s paws can only be used to sell cute. When cats and dogs are together, dogs will be beaten by cats. Dogs are gentle in temperament and bigger in size than cats. Naturally, they don’t want to bully cats, but they are beaten and Howling by little cats. The dog reaches out his paw to touch the cat and wants to play together. However, the cat’s paw is used for fighting. If the purpose is not unified, the dog will be beaten naturally.
The paw of the cat’s small claws is still very powerful, but, to treat the owner, the cat will not easily leak out his own sharp nails. The cat will show its weapons only when it feels that it is in danger. Therefore, the owner must not make the cat feel that there is dangerous information, otherwise, it will be slapped by the cat.
First of all, the reason why cats use their paws as weapons is that they are born of the feline family. Moreover, cat’s claws are very sharp and are the main weapons for cats to hunt.
Secondly, the reason why cats attack people is that they are threatened or irritated or painful. Usually, the place where the cat owner caresses is just the key part of the cat. These parts of the cat’s skin feel very sensitive, if the owner gives these parts of the appropriate stimulation, the cat will feel very comfortable. However, when the stimulation time is too long or too strong, the cat will feel the danger and escape or attack its owner.
Finally, cats usually learn skills by chasing each other in the process of growing up. After this stage, they will also understand what strength will not hurt their partners, but this strength is not suitable for human beings. Therefore, in the process of cat growth, when the cat scratch and bite you, you should stop it, roar loudly and pat the place where it is forced slightly, so as to slowly It’s time to “attack” you.
