hi there, all of a sudden my cat has become scared of something as when he is asleep for instance and you walk past him he jumps, even when he is awake he jumps if he hears the front door open, is he deaf or something, he comes when he is called, but he has only just stared this.
a few weeks ago his brother was killed on the road, he seems to have bad dreams and then wakes up in shock, he wasnt around when his brother was killed though.
sometimes he doesnt want to eat, and he is skinny but not underweight or anything is he okay?
Answer from Kate
Contrary to popular belief cats do go through a period of grief after the loss of another pet.
His behavior sounds like he is definitely anxious and this could definitely be caused by the death of his brother.
I have a web page about this issue which you may find of further interest and help
best wishes Kate
