Why Does My Cat Hate My Partner?
If you and your partner have been living harmoniously with your puss cat, a sudden change in your cat’s behavior suggests that he is not well.
If your cat has started hissing, this can be the sign of a variety of medical problems ranging from dental problems, arthritis and diseases of the nervous system diseases to a hyperactive thyroid.
If your cat has started hissing when being handled by your partner, there is a very good chance that they are physically in pain.
The best thing is to take your cat along to see your Vet for a check up as this will reveal if there is a physical problem needing treatment.
Now the question is…
What If My Cat Is Not Ill But Still Hates My Partner?
Cats are definitely creatures of habit who seriously hate any change in their daily routine.
If a visit to the Vet’s did not reveal any physical problems then you will have to try psychologically analyze your little fur baby
The big question is – Have you changed their routine in any way?
Are you leaving for work earlier or later and because of this, have you altered the time of your cat’s breakfast?
Have you recently moved their cat bed or cat litter tray?
Is the latter now in full view of passing traffic so your cat has no chance of using their litter box in peace?
Believe it or not, any of these could upset your cat and turn them from a cuddly fun-loving cat into an anxious and irritable pet.
Routine is very important to cats
Now let’s look at how you can get your cat to like your husband
How To Get My Cat To Like My Husband
If your Vet has found a physical problem with your puss cat, then hopefully as the treatment takes effect, your cat will start to feel better and life will return to normal.
If however, you suspect that you have upset your cat by changing their routine, it will take several weeks for things to calm down and for them to accept the changes.
There are tips to ensure that your cat starts to like your husband again.
The most important point is that cats hate to feel trapped so your husband/partner must not try and pick the cat up for a cuddle.
Far better to just let the cat come to your husband when they are ready to do so.
Don’t try to force your cat to cuddle or to like your husband. These things take time
Your husband can certainly be the one on dinner patrol and he can happily talk to your cat and after several nights of success, trying stroking your puss cat.
It will take time and it is best not to rush things and let your cat feel totally in control throughout.
The key to success is to give your puss cat space so that he doesn’t feel pressured and let him approach your husband for a cuddle – not the other way round.
The most telling moment will come when your puss cat allows your husband to share his favorite armchair once again – take it as a positive turning point in their relationship!
