Aggressive, nervious CatHi there,
I was hoping that somebody might be able to help out with domesticating our new cat. She is 1 year and 4 months old and we have had her for just 3 weeks. She was petrified upon arriving at our house, and when cornered (the only way to get close) would snarl and lash out with her paw. She would hide in the most remote corner of the house and not come out until everyone was asleep (to eat). 3 weeks later she still remains in places out of reach and avoids all interaction, only coming out to eat at night. Upon being approached she still hisses, though is a little less aggressive than before. When approaching her, quicker movements heighten her fear and she will hiss, sometimes still lashing out with her paw or try and escape. If you approach her slowly, talking to her, you can overcome her anxiety and stroke her. After a short while she will begin to feel comfortable and crave the attention, rubbing her head almost violently against your hand. This process of overcoming her fear has to be repeated upon every interaction. This is much more difficult to do at night as her anxiety seems to be heightened on approaching and she is more aggressive than usual. She eats just once a day, at night when nobody is around. Everything physical seems normal and healthy. Her previous owner seemed kind and caring and had a number of cats, as well as a small dog. However, it would appear that this cat has been aloof for some time. The couple of time I visited the previous owners´ house the cat would always be out of sight on the roof. It was difficult for her previous owner to catch her. We bought the cat for our children but as of yet our children have not been able to interact with her!

That having to interact with other cats
Stresses them. See how it goes after the aconite. But after a time with a regular routine and letting the cat decide when to interact with everyone- the cat will calm down- I have 2 rescue cats- one of them is
Very affectionate now, but It took
Letting him alone and doing everything in a calm way.
