24.3 How do I know my cat is stressed?


In cats, signs of stress are sometimes hard to distinguish from those of fear. Some, such as licking the nose or raising a front leg, can be surprising and might even at first have been associated with a calm or content cat. These signs can be isolated or linked, and can also be manifest in succession. If your companion shows any of these signs, it is time to act in order to avoid difficult situations and discomfort for your companion and you.

Signs of stress in a cat:

  • Meowing
  • Low position, immobility
  • Ears down and pointed backwards
  • Nose licking
  • Shivering
  • Defecation
  • Urination
  • Mydriasis
  • Low position
  • Prostration

Cats can go from stress to fear in rapid succession when exposed to an unpleasant experience. Just like us, they can also be scared without stress and stressed without fear!
