Behavoir changes in cat

by sam

I have a 9 month old female cat, she is energetic and only wants to play. She's not a lap cat and doesn't seem to enjoy petting and usually takes any sort of petting as an invitation to play, which is fine by me, she is a very social cat and follows me wherever I go when I am home. The last two days now she has been going off alone and sleeping in my bed around late afternoon. This is weird as she will only go in my bed if I or my girlfriend are in there. It doesn't seem to me that she is sick, she shows no noticeable symptoms and is still very energetic all morning and afternoon. I did notice the other day that her litter box smelled strongly of urine, but it also really needed to be cleaned. It is her first winter and it's beginning to get real cold and also has been getting dark around 5pm, I'm hoping that this is the reason for the change. My girlfriend is very concerned and I am starting to think it might not be normal. I am going to call a vet if this persists but I was just curious if anyone else has experienced behavior like this.

Hi well yes it could just be the change to the season and weather. My own two 7 month olds are spending more time in and sleeping during the day now that winter is approaching.

you are best placed to know if the behavior is different enough to warrants a trip to the vets, trust your instinct. if you are worried then a trip to the vets will cost you a little but the peace of mind is worth so much more i find.

She is gorgeous my the way.

best wishes Kate
