my kitten is aggressive after trip to vets

by robyn

My kitten had her shots today, but now she doesn't want me to pet her. She even hisses at me. Is this normal behavior for a kitten getting it's shots for the first time. she even claws at me.

Answer by Kate

Hi yes some cats can react like this after a visit to the vets. After all she would have been a little frightened by the whole experience and it can take a few days for them to get over the situation.

She may also blame you for her fear and that is why she is acting aggressively towards you. Don't worry, let her come to you in her own time. if you try to push the situation you could just make the situation worse.

please see my page about bonding with your cat, it gives some good tips on how to approach your cat without frieghteneing them etc. here is the page

best wishes Kate
