Cat freaking out
(Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada)
Cat in crib
Cat is freaking out and scaring us. I have a two year old tabby who has been fixed since he was six months old. He sometimes acts like he is scared of life. He always wants to be on my bed and sleep with me, which is fine.
When he comes up on the bed it is like he is scared. He crouches down and his eyes open really wide and he acts very sketchy. He has always been welcome on my bed. Sometimes he sits on my bed looking up into an empty corner of the room, his tail is going back and forth like crazy and he has his ears back.
He sits doing this for up to 30 minutes. He only acts like this in my bedroom. He has always been a very loving guy, he loves affection and has a need to be loved often.
Last night my daughter found him in her baby's crib, when she tried to pick him up he freaked out and kept batting at her with his paws, nails out, he was making a weird sound.
My daughters room is in the basement, this cat hates the basement and never goes down there. This behavior is scaring us. We are thinking there is something wrong with his brain. We have other cats and he plays and has a great time with them. I hope someone can help. Thank you!
