I have a new problem foster (actually 2 fosters, but lets start with one problem). She seems like she wants to be your best friend. As loving as the next cat, and even more so, but out of the blue turns to attack. I read the thread about aggresive behavior, but I am not 100% sure exactly why she is doing it. It seems to be the over stimulation type, but on the other hand it could be her way of playing, yet way too roughly. I have only had her a few days, so I do not know ALL of her quirks yet. But it usually only takes about 3 strokes before she lunges at you. Then she goes back to rubbing and rolling and purring until the next lunge. She will (hopefully) make someone a wonderful companion pet, but not if she constanly is in attack mode. Not many people want to deal with that kind of behavior. Can anyone help me to 1st determine what she might be thinking, and next how to stop it?
