  • If your cat has a sudden shift in temperament, or dramatically shifts his behaviors for no apparent reason, schedule an appointment for a veterinary examination. Sudden changes in personality and behavior may indicate a variety of underlying health problems, and a prompt examination may allow you to identify and treat an ailment quickly and with minimal suffering for your pet. The better that you understand general cat psychology and your own pet's personality, the better equipped you will be for assessing and dealing with any changes and problems that may develop.

    As it turned out, Jackson Galaxy, the show’s star, applied some cat psychology and advised Stella’s owner to start setting aside 15-30 minutes a day for play time with Stella. The play would burn energy that had been put into the attacks earlier.

  • Before you take that course of action you may prefer to see what help you can obtain from a good cat psychology book. There are many such books available, this one gets good reviews:

    Cat psychology should help us recognize that when a cat misbehaves she is often only trying to tell us something. . . perhaps we should listen.

    Look! cats are clever and you need some cat psychology if you really want to understand your moggie and have deep meaningful relationship with him/her. Most owners (8 out of 10 or something) believe that their cats are aloof haughty creatures who regard them (the owners) as lesser beings placed upon the earth solely to facilitate food and shelter to them (the cats). Despite glaring evidence to support this theory it is not true. Cats can be very loyal and trusting friends as this article will hopefully explain. A brief study of some basic cat psychology will soon have you looking at your cat in a completely different way. The thing is, our cats are constantly attempting to communicate with us but we just aren’t listening. Put another way, we don’t always understand their language and so we miss what they are trying to tell us. So sit up, pin your ears back and pay attention whilst I explain some of the basics of cat communication.

Cat Psychology - Understanding How Your Cat Thinks

Cats are emotional and expressive animals, capable of deep affection and sweetness on the one hand and anger, jealousy and fear on the other. On top of that, each cat has a unique personality and temperament, so deciphering your pet's cat psychology can be a difficult task. Many veterinarians recommend methods of training and problem behavior modification based on cat psychology. Understanding the basics of cat psychology will help to explain why your cat acts the way he does, and how you can best address difficult behaviors.
