How to Help an Anxious Cat Relax

Anxious CatHas your cat been meowing more than usual lately? Has she become aggressive towards other cats, pets and even people? Has she exhibited a change in her eating habits? If you’ve noticed any of these things, you could have an anxious cat on your hands. The good news is, there are a few simple steps you can take to help your cat to relax.

Spend more quality time with your cat.

One of the easiest ways to help relieve your cat’s stress is to simply spend some extra time with her. Whether you choose to sit quietly with her on your lap or play with her in your living room, showing your cat some love and attention will put her mind at ease and help her unwind. Remember: cats are most likely to get anxious when they’re bored and under-stimulated.

Provide your cat with toys and play equipment.

If boredom is the source of your cat’s anxiety, making sure she gets enough playtime and exercise can make a huge difference. Keep toys and play equipment around the house so that she’ll always be able to climb, scratch and indulge her hunting instincts on a regular basis. This will allow your cat to blow off some steam and keep their anxiety at bay.

Schedule a veterinarian visit for your cat.

There are also certain health-related issues that can cause anxiety in cats. If you make an effort to reduce anxiety and stress on your own and don’t see results, take your cat to the vet for a check-up. The vet may find an underlying health issue that is causing the anxiety and stress to manifest.
