Stressed Cat? Bach flowers can help!
ust like you can have stress, your cat can experience stress too. It’s possible that you haven’t thought about this because your cat seems to have an easy and lazy life. Nothing is further from the truth; cats also have to deal with stress. *
Stress can show through physical problems like bald spots or a decreased appetite. Your cat can also start to expose bad behaviourlike spraying in the house or scratching the couch, doors or walls. Your cat will isolate itself and will have to deal with dejected feelings. *
Cats are very sensitive to change. A new family member, moving into a new house or even the smallest change in your domestic setting can make your cat lose its equilibrium. Dealing with this causes a whole lot of stress in cats.
Bach flowers mix 111 can help your cat deal more easily with new situations. *
Tensions or threats within their territory
Cats can feel a great deal of stress when they feel threatened in their own territory. The arrival of another animal can cause much stress for example. Some cats will get too scared to move freely in their own home. They can also feel threatened when they have to share their food bowl, drinking bowl or litter box with other cats. They will tend to keep an eye on the other cats. These situations bring along a great deal of stress. *
You maybe wouldn’t think this possible, but even a cat that’s sleeping throughout the whole day, can experience stress. Prolonged boredom can be an indicator of chronic stress. Keep a good eye on your cat, because this form of stress is difficult to observe at times. *
Stress can also have a physical cause. The discomfort of a disease and administering medication (often forced) can cause stress to your cat. In addition, if your cat has to visit the vet frequently because of an illness this will also cause stress, particularly where the cat is locked into a transport box for the journey to the vet.
