I have a couple of questions if someone could please help me out. I know this is long but please bear with me.
1) My himalayan cat, Emma, is about 4 years old, she stays indoors (i think she is too scared to go outdoors) and she isn't "fixed". She does have a few very odd behaviors though. We have had her since she was a few weeks old and she is still really jumpy around my family. One slight move, drop a paper clip on the floor, and she goes bolting. We treat her very well and she has never suffered any harm which would make her so scared at the people she sees every day. She also NEVER comes when she is called. I understand if she is not a "people cat" but to be so scared?? She is also terrified of my dad.
2)Every month, and I'm assuming it is because she isn't "fixed", she gets into her "mood" as we call it. She squats around the house meowing nonstop and rubbing into EVERYTHING. Also she is overly friendly, wants to be pet and wraps her front legs around our arms when we do pet her. If she lays down while we are around, she has her behind stuck up in the air and if we try to pick her up, she straightens her back and it appears to be painful to her stomach area. If this is normal behavior for a cat who isn't fixed, is she at all suffering? Is it really that important to get her fixed if she never goes outside?
If anyone knows any answers could please help me or has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
