My hubby & I got our cat when he was 8 weeks old and he is now 5 years old. Most of the time, he is the perfect kitteh.
He is a very loving cat to both of us.
The story changes when ANYONE comes over to visit. He will attack absolutely anyone who comes over, even regular visitors. The attacks are completely unprovoked. He will leash out at them from behind the couch, he will block the doorways and hiss so no one can walk through, he will bite & scratch if someone dares to get close to him. When visitors are over, even my husband and I can’t touch him. As soon as visitors leave, our loving kitteh is back to normal.
This was always a problem, but since we moved into a new house 3 months ago (which he loves, btw) it got much worse.
I think he is trying to protect the house, but this behaviour problem is extremely concerning to me, especially when we have small children visiting who get attacked out of nowhere.
What can we do?
