Adopting a Fearful Cat 

10-15-2019 08:30 PM

Fear is common and a perfectly normal, innate, and adaptive behavior of all animals. Although it's possible that a fearful cat has suffered abuse or bad experiences, most of the time fear results from a lack of exposure with positive experiences. Fear also comes from being in a new and unknown environment, or it could be part of a genetic predisposition. Most cats are fearful at first in a new environment and will adjust in time. However, if fear isn't addressed, it can develop into serious behavioral and health problems. This document created by the San Francisco SPCA with a grant from Maddie's Fund®.
