my cat is always mad

Answer by Kate
Hi, Well your boyfriend has moved in on his territory and he feels threatened by it. he is using his urine smell to make the home smell more like him again and is trying to cover the scent of your boyfriend.

I would suggest that what is needed is a period of bonding between your cat and your boyfriend. However this must be done on your cats terms and in his time frame. Please see my web page about bonding with a cat it has some suggestions as to how to approach a cat and let them become more confident with the person without feeling threatened.

Don't worry your cat is not mad at your boyfriend, his behaviour i.e hissing etc is a sign of fear not of anger. So the secret is to allow your cat to become familiar with and confident around your boyfriend.

Best wishes Kate
