Q: What is wrong with my cat

November 6, 2010 | By Jenp123 | 1 answer | Expired: 1904 days ago

My cat seems to literally hate everyone! He tolerates me but will be sitting on my lap one minute and start hissing and growling at me the next. If anyone tries to pet him he attacks them. Even if someone looks at him he attacks. He has been like this for as long as I can remeber, but he seems to be getting worse.

Your cat might be experiencing intermittent pain from an undiagnosed medical problem. If so, when he starts feeling the pain, he may try "attacking" anyone/anything around him as a potential source of the pain.

You should have your cat examined by a vet to ascertain if he does have a medical condition that could be causing his sporadic aggression. Even if the "problem" is anxiety, there are medications that could help.
