Ten signs your cat might be stressed out:

1- He/She is Urinating Outside the Litter Box

We all know cat pee is smelly and annoying to clean up but your cat is trying to tell you something when they missed their “toilet”. They might not be feeling well at all.

2- Vomit, Diarrhea, or other Stomach Issues

This is another stinky clue your cat might not be feeling well. Do not ignore this and speak with your vet as soon as possible.

3- Extreme Scratching

Compulsive scratching can be an indicative of big behavioral and health issues.

4- Extreme Grooming

Cats are known for their grooming habits, but when they lick themselves to the point where they go bald it is a serious and clear sign of stress.

5- Excessive Meowing

Some cats “talk” constantly just because that’s their personality but when their vocalization is unusually long or it sounds panicky (you will be able to tell) a vet should be notified.

6- Seclusion

Cats are shy and have the tendency to find their own hiding spot but they should not be constantly hiding from you or anyone else in the house. Check with your vet if this happens constantly.

7- Increased Sleeping

Cats can sleep for 20 hours a day, but this doesn’t mean that they will. You should know more than anyone your cat’s sleeping habits, if you can sense anything out of the ordinary check with the vet.

8- Decrease in Appetite

Cats are not like us and don’t go on diets, so if you see that your cat is not eating, check with your vet.

9- Aggression Towards People

A stressed or sick cat might display aggression towards strangers, even you. Check with a vet or veterinary behaviorist immediate.

10- Aggression Towards Others Animals

Fights or aggression towards other animals might be a sign of stress.

If you see any of these signs on your cat, please make sure you check with your vet!
