Behavioral problems, such as excessive vocalization or defecating outside the litter box, are the fist symptoms of stress and anxiety in cats that a pet parent may notice. It is important to see a vet if your cat is exhibiting any behavioral problems or is showing signs of stress or anxiety, in order to rule out any underlying medical conditions (such as hyperthyroidism, urinary tract infections, or GI issues).
Certain breeds of cats, such as Siamese, Abyssinian, or Bengal, are extremely intelligent and need a lot of attention from their owners. These cats will become anxious if intellectual stimulation is not adequately received.
Stress and anxiety in cats can be supported with natural supplements, which are safe for and will aid in calming aggression, and reducing agitation.
