Feline Aggression Page 3 of 2
I have a male de-sexed cat, with major anger management issues. I attempt to pat him and after about 30 seconds he lashes out and trys to bite me. He wanderers around the house quite happy, then all of a sudden he goes crazy and attacks. Visitors are petrified of him (which can be a little funny) and I am constantly on my guard waiting for his next attack. Its like he only wants affection when he is ready. I kind of stole him from a neighbour who left him to fend for himself without food & water for a week - Im thinking maybe this is where is anger stems from? I have read advice given on the use of Belladonna & Natrum Mur-Worse to calm him down. I am from Australia and I am not sure what the term 30c relates to. This is obviously the dosage amount, does this stuff come in liquid form? What does the doesage compare to - a tablespoon/teaspoon?
steff last decadeYour cat needs anacardium 200c.Just add a drop or 2 in his/her drink once daily till his/her behaviour is back to normal.This is not only suitable for animals but for human beings.
ANACARDIUM is a homeopathic medicine.
200c is the strength of this medicine.
Available on homeopathic store,or contact ABC,they also sell medicines.
sajjadakram635 last decadeI have given the cat 'Belladonna' and the label said 30c. I have been giving him 1 table per day which I just make him swallow before dinner. He has been on it for 4 days now and he is still extremely aggressive. Am I giving him enough or is Belladonna perhaps not the solution to the problem? How long does it usually take for the dose to kick-in? I also looked for 'anacardium' but the health food shop had never heard of it. Living in rural Australia - my sources are limited to the local natural health store!!
steff last decadeThis is not so much a reply but a question for all. I just had my cats fixed and the one is being very aggressive towards the other and at times even me. I dont know what to do. I went out today and bought a oil difuser the feliway comfort zone plug in. Can anyone help me with this. THanks Stella from ontario canada
stellabanks last decadeIt sounds from some of the symptoms described in the posts that for aggressive, crazy, hallucinating, cats, you may want to check ino hyperesthesia or rippling skin disease. I have been looking into this for my cat. I google searched and looked at the website of exoticcatz, catskittysgatos, andcats-about-com
misomiso last decadeI realize this is an old topic - but maybe someone can offer me a suggestion... Here's my story:
I am new to this forum but I am in a bit of a desperate situation and I'm down to trying just about anything so I'm hoping there is someone here with suggestions :)
I have 2 domestic cats now (I've been told they are Bengals, but probably really removed as their markings and features are not very distinct. Behavior wise though they are a bit Bengal-esque). They are mother and son, but they were separated for over a year so they probably don't realize that connection. However, they are inseparable. I also have a dog, and all 3 get along just fine, absolutely no problems. We had a 3rd domestic cat die at 20 years old about 2 months ago.
We recently took in a 2 year old female Bengal who, due to a very complicated delivery and a prolapsed uterus, was taken out of a breeding program and sold as a pet. Prior to the litter being born she was very sweet to all the other house cats in the breeders home. After the litter and subsequent spay - she became very VERY aggressive towards other cats. I was hoping that might have been hormonal, and after taking her away from the litter she would revert back to being non-aggressive.
After getting her home, I noticed a large ball on her stomach. Long story short - she had a massive hernia from spay complications that the breeder apparently 'overlooked'. So, she had yet another major surgery to repair that. Right now she is still separated and in a kennel to try and give her time to heal without any more issues.
After 1.5 weeks of being in my home (prior to fixing the hernia), secluded in her own room - there was still no sign of calming down when the other cats would come to sniff under the door. She would get very aggressive, puffing and grunting, screaming, etc. I realize this could not only be hormonal but due to injury, so my fingers are crossed that after she has healed maybe she'll get better all on her own.
But I'm worried it wont, and would like to stack the deck in my favor. I would really feel it a tragedy to have to return her to the breeder after what is such an apparent lack of care for her animals.
I've been trying to find some herbal remedy that might be a good thing to put in her food during her recovery time that will also ease the aggression - maybe kill 2 birds with one stone. She'll be more hormonally balanced after the time away from her litter, feeling better after the surgery - and perhaps more calm and less aggressive. The best possible situation to try again to introduce her to my house cats...
Any suggestions??!? Please!
Summer&Rajah 8 years agoHello,
I just posted to the general board then found this thread. I will copy it to this board as well
I was recommended 'agression formula' by a cat whisperer for my 3 year old boy, but I really don't like taking ready made formulas as they may have things he doesn't need, or may miss things he does need... the formula has Scutellaria, Chamomilla, Belladonna, Arsen alb, and Hepar sulp.
The problem is with my 3 year old male cat Valentino who has been with me for most of his young life. I feed him raw food, and he has always been happy and healthy, though quite shy and occasionally skittish.
This spring I took on fostering a mother and 5 kittens. I kept the new ones away from Tino. The mama Dona was very aggressive, filled with mother hormones and she went after him any time she saw him. In time her hormones faded and she became very sweet to him. I decided to keep Dona and one kitten Tilly. I began to let them all hang around together, Tino was stand offish, but fine. One day he was irate, hissing, spitting, growling, even at me. I soon found he had a festering wound on his leg, he went to the vet, got stitches and antibiotics and healed. Since then he has been very hissy, and even whaps the baby on the head sometimes. Generally in the morning he will be nice to the girls, often he will lick the baby and play with Dona, but as soon as he eats he gets grumpy and starts the hissing. He will calm, then after dinner... hissy fits. The cat whisperer said he may be suffering from the chemicals/medicines, and she thinks they hurt his neck when restraining him. I intend on taking him to a chiropractor (when I find one I can afford) and would like advice on homeopathics as well. If anyone out there would be good enough to share their experiences, I would be so grateful. I really want my kitties to be healthy, happy and safe.
