Stress in cats

A number of factors can cause stress in cats. Life-changing events such as moving house, a new member of the family (for example a new baby or a new animal joining the household) can be difficult for cats, but even events of shorter duration such as a visit to the vets can be stressful. It is important to be able to recognise both things that might cause stress and the symptoms of stress so that you can help prevent and alleviate stress to keep your cat happy.
