My cat is about 9 mts. old, female, and she's always been the type of cat that doesn't enjoy a lot of petting. But she's always loved to play. Everyday when my boyfriend and i would come home, she'd stretch out on the floor for him to rub her tummy. And we'd always chase her around the house, her waiting for us to catch up, then she'd run then let us catch her. In the last 2 days, she won't even come near us... well, mostly with my boyfriend. Lately, him and I have been argueing, and there's been yelling, in the past she'd jump on our laps in the middle of our arguements as to say, "settle down". Well, she barely lets my boyfriend touch her anymore. She'll slink away from him. He's tried to feed her her favorite treats but she won't even take them. We think he could have played with her too hard, (but we've checked her and she's not hurt or bruised) or we thought it could have been the yelling. I'm scared she'll never feel happy in her home agian. I'm really worried about her. Will her scared feelings ever go way? Does anyone have any suggestions of what it might be, based on what i've said, and what we can do to help her be her playful, loving self agian?
