My cat is 10 years old and a real sweetheart - curious, lovable, cuddly, etc. But, I've noticed over the past several months that he is hissing for reasons you wouldn't think he'd hiss over. For example, the other day he was sitting at the sliding glass door looking outside. I was going to bed so I had to shut it. He hissed. Last night, he jumped off the bed and hissed when he landed. What's that about?? When all this extra hissing started, I thought it was because he thought I was going to give him a pill (he had been taking medication not long before) or step on him (he has a tendency to get right under my feet lately). But, then it just seemed that he was hissing for whatever reason he felt like. Now it has progressed to hissing when he jumps off the bed. I just don't get it. The only reason I can think is that he's recognized the attention that he gets from hissing. Any other thoughts?
