Scaredy Cat

Saturday, October 28, 2023
posted by Jim Murphy

Your cat is arching his back, puffing out his hair and bouncing all over the room. What’s happening? If your cat perceives that he is in a fearful situation, his biochemicals begin to go to work. Adrenaline is flowing through his body causing his hair to stand up on edge, his back begins to arch and his tail puffs up. You could snap a picture and put him on a Halloween card. Cats pose┬álike to this to look bigger and menacing to an approaching threat. Your cat will turn sideways toward the proposed attacker to further magnify his appearance. He┬ámay look tough on the outside but on the inside, he hopes the attacker will turn and go away. This position may look strange to us but it’s very real to your cat. Maybe that’s where the phrase “Scaredy Cat” came from.

Remember, pets are family!
