Anxiety for Cats

No one wants to see their cat anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed. Scriptly has a wide selection of cat anxiety medication and treatment options to help your four-legged friend feel at ease.

Cat anxiety

A cat's fears and anxieties tend to develop during the first year of their life. Some common causes of cat anxiety are illnesses, physical pain, trauma, or improper socialisation. 

Cat separation anxiety is also very common. With more and more people working from home, many cats have grown accustomed to seeing their owners at home more often. When their owners inevitably have to leave the house, this can lead to stress and anxiety!

Physical manifestations of cat anxiety include increased heart rate, panting, or trembling. 

Cat anxiety symptoms

Because your cat's reactions to anxiety will most likely be physical, it can be easier to spot if you know what you’re looking for. Some of the most common signs of stress in cats are:

  • Increased movement
  • Hiding 
  • Destruction
  • Excessive vocalisation
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Aggression

Should I use a cat anxiety diffuser?

Cat anxiety diffusers or cat calming sprays recreate chemicals that mimic naturally occurring pheromones that are known to soothe and relax cats. In nature, these pheromones act as chemical markers that cats use to feel safe in an environment. Cats do this when they rub their head against people or objects, to mark them as safe.

Like an electric air freshener, a cat anxiety diffuser can be plugged into a standard outlet to automatically emit pheromones throughout the day. These diffusers are odourless, so humans and other pets can’t detect the scent of cat pheromones. 

Should I use a cat calming collar?

Cat calming collars, similar to cat anxiety diffusers, release a scent or pheromone to help calm your kitty, and reduce problematic behaviour. The benefit of using a collar over a diffuser is that they’re portable. This makes them especially useful on long car journeys or trips to the vet.
