Human-Directed Aggression

If you live with a cat that displays aggression towards humans, you need professional help. Before contacting us, please be sure that you have consulted with your veterinarian to rule out pain or illness, especially in cases of sudden onset aggression.

Our human-directed aggression evaluation begins by taking a detailed history of your cat’s behavior, such as when and how the aggression occurs. We’ll then conduct an assessment to identify the triggers and underlying causes of the aggression. Once we identify possible underlying causes of the aggression, we’ll then work with you to develop a customized behavior modification plan that is tailored to your cat’s specific needs. This may involve changes to your cat’s environment, such as providing more hiding places or play opportunities, and modifications to your own behavior, such as altering the way you interact with your cat.

We may also recommend training exercises and techniques that can help reduce your cat’s aggression towards humans. These may include positive reinforcement techniques, such as rewarding your cat for calm behavior, and counter-conditioning exercises, where your cat is gradually exposed to situations that trigger its aggressive behavior in a controlled and safe manner.

Pawsitive Vibes can provide you with the knowledge, tools, and support needed to manage your cat’s aggressive behavior towards humans. By working with a certified cat behavior consultant, you can improve your cat’s quality of life, strengthen your bond with your feline friend, and create a safer and happier home environment for everyone.
