Cats, just like us, can be depressed or even depressed. To avoid this, it is important to know how to recognize the warning signs of an uneasiness that can quickly become deeper. If your cat is unhappy, you must know it. Prevention is better than cure !
1. He pulls out the hairs
One of the most revealing signs of uneasiness and stress in the cat is the pulling of hair. The cat will then lick a lot and tear the hair with his teeth. If this behavior only lasts a few hours or days, the cat could simply feel disturbed by an unusual event. However, if he continues to tear the hair after three days, do not hesitate to consult a veterinarian to determine the cause of his anguish. Indeed, he could, in the long run, hurt himself.
2. He does not wash anymore
The cat is a particularly clean animal. He spends a third of his time cleaning his body licking and wiping. Not only does his toilet allow him to remove dust and parasites that might have been invited into his hair, but in addition he undoes the knots that could have formed. In addition, licking the hair will produce endorphins that will soothe the cat, which explains why he licks more intensely when stressed. The toilet is such an important act for a cat that you have to worry if the cat stops doing it.
3. He does not eat anymore
As with all animals, loss of appetite is not a good sign. It can be the expression of a disease, but also of a malaise. If your cat is unhappy, he will not hesitate to sulk his bowl, including his favorite foods. Remember that a cat can not fast like a dog. If your cat has eaten nothing in 36 hours, drive it to the vet.
