My cat Leia has been acting up.


my name is Matthew and I have a very mean and aggresive cat when it comes to any persons but myself. Leia is almost 3yrs old and has always been this way. Everynow and then Leia will get angry at me when she smells other animals on me but will adventually calm down after 30min or so. For some reason Leia has been angry at me for the last 2-3 days and is not letting up. Also she is not eating as much as she usually does, but is still eating. I guess im wondering if cats can get depressed? If they can, does it happen suddenly with no changes to their daily routines? Or could this be something more serious? Also I should mention that she was spaded after her first heat some time ago and is strickly an indoor cat with no contact with other animals. Thank you for taking time out to help me with this problem, if any problem at all. And again thank you.

Hi Matthew
My advice would be to wait a few more days to see if she gets over this or not. If not then i would recommend that you take her to the vets for a check up.

i say this because whenever a cats behavior changes like this for no apparent reason and is also slightly off her food could suggest that she is not feeling well and is irritable because of it. just like if you are in pain you want to be left alone and everything seems to get you down.

Hopefully it is just a small bug that we all get from time to time and from which she will recover naturally. but as i say if it continues you will need to have her looked at by a vet to be on the safe side.

Hope is is back to her old self again soon

best wishes Kate
