Jealous Kitty

Thursday, February 1, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

My cat Molly is very attached to me as you well know by now. I cater to her every need since she is almost 19 and has a host of medical issues that need to be tended to. Molly is used to all of my attention and when she doesn’t get it, she appears to get mad. Not in a mean way but more of a hurt way. When I’m at my computer working on my radio station, she’ll quietly come in and try to distract me. She’ll sit by me waiting for me to give her a pet or two. She then seems to get upset that I’m spending too much time on my computer and not with her. She then”storms out.” Yesterday Molly was sitting on my lap as she normally does in the evening. I got a phone call and was talking to a friend for quite a long time. Molly got up and left and went into the bedroom and sat by herself. I could swear that she was upset that I was on the phone. As soon as I ended the conversation, she came back to my lap and was cozy and comfy as usual.

Sometimes a cat’s behavior could be caused by competing over different resources such as territory, food or the owners affection as the case with Molly. Sometimes a cat can be stressed over change.Whatever has changed in kitty’s little world scare him or her leading to fear induced aggression. We may be able to pinpoint the change to a newly adopted cat, a baby or a new boyfriend, but that doesn’t mean the cat is jealous of them. It’s more likely that Kitty just needs help with adjusting to the new situation.

It’s always good to know your cat and understand what they are feeling. I will continue to spoil Molly and understand that at  times she may not be too happy with me!
