10 Tips to INSTANTLY Calm ANY Cat
There are a couple of techniques, which aren’t rocket-science but will enable you to calm almost any cat, in almost any situation. It doesn’t matter what breed they’re or if they need a very aggressive personality. the ideas below just work.
I’ve had cats in my life for around 40 years now and 25 of those are with magnificent Maine Coons, two of which I still own (Harry and Charlie, brothers and 14 years of age). There are numerous reasons why your cat may feel particularly anxious but usually, it’s associated with their environment or their history. Maybe you’ve moved house or changed things around (cats don’t adore change), maybe another cat (or dog) has been in and has left their scent around their home. There might be numerous reasons why your cat doesn’t seem as comfortable because it should.
Alternatively, it’d just be an aggressive cat. Perhaps it wasn’t handled and socialized properly as a kitten or it’s a nervous rescue cat with an unknown history. Sometimes it’s hard to know.
Whatever the reason, you would like your cat to trust you. The tricks and tips I describe below will send signals to your cat that tell it you’re not a threat. you’ll be showing it that you simply mean it no harm. Your cat should relax a touch and you ought to see the results of this immediately.
How To Calm A Cat
It’s not that complex. All you would like to try to do is behave as a cat would towards an aggressive cat if it didn’t want to seem like a threat. We’re applying natural cat behavior to things.
1) Blink Slowly Towards a Cat
If you simply take one thing faraway from this post, this could be it. It’s amazing what percentage cat-lovers I do know that haven’t heard of this technique! you’ll notice if you search for it, that once you check out your cat, they’ll blink slowly and possibly then look. this is often your cat telling you that you simply shouldn’t see them as a threat in any way. If you’ve got a cat, go and check out this now.
So, what you would like to try to do is sort of simple. The nervous cat will check out you to undertake and determine whether you’re a threat or not. If there’s any doubt, they’re going to assume you’re so what you would like to try to do is convince you’re not. So, once they stare at you, perform the following:
1. Slowly close your eyes whilst still facing them and keep them closed for about 2 seconds.
2. Open them as slowly as you closed them.
3. Wait a few seconds and divert your attention to something else, but roll in the hay all slowly – no sudden movements.
Repeat these steps every single time your cat looks at you and remember to stay things nice and slow.
As I said above, if you’re getting to take only one thing from this text or simply don’t have time to read anymore – just take this one point on-board. I even have been using this system for my very own cats for years but also for other cats. once you roll in the hay you’ll almost see them becoming less stressed and anxious right ahead of you!
