Our cat has become extremely aggressive at us in our own home. How can we make them feel safe again?
Well, it sounds to me like your cat is pretty stressed. That's the main cause of aggression or increased aggression in cats.
We need to first address environmental factors. Is there a new baby in the house? Have you introduced another pet? Or, has a new pet moved in next door which is stressing your cat out?
There are a few products available to help calm your cat down. Feliway is a great product, particularly in multi-cat households, but also for a single cat.
And then there is a diet that you can feed your cat called Calm from Royal Canin, which is very effective. It's made with some pretty special ingredients that help relieve stress in cats.
Of course, you'll also need to rule out any medical issues causing the stress. If you think that there could be some pain, or you've ruled out all the other environmental causes of stress, you should really get that checked out at your local vet.
