So I have this extremely cute and loving almost 3 yr old boy names Kal. He was a foster I got when he was just 2 weeks old. Safe to say I have had him his entire life! At first he like most with no moms, he was very feisty, attacking my face and clawing up our hands. When ppl would come over (weekly) he was what I assumed was playful but a little rough. Still had sharp claws and teeth. He started with hissing at people that he should have been used to by then. The whole time he never hissed at me, my bf or my daughter. My bf passed away when Kal was around 1 1/2 but I remember towards the end he did start to hiss at him but never attacked! As Kal got older (after losing his dad) he got meaner to “outsiders” very aggressive, full on unprovoked attacks! All you have to do is walk in! He’s not a small cat so everyone is terrified of him! He will often come up to a new person and rub on their shoes and sometimes even their legs. However, you absolutely cannot touch him! He will attack! Hiss bite and scratch! Another odd thing is, when I have company and I try to pet him, he attacks me!! That’s the only time he is ever aggressive towards me! As if he is angry that I allowed this person in His house! Now almost 3 yrs later, I have to put him away immediately when someone knocks before he realizes they are staying and he wants to attack me! When company is here, I can’t even go try to calm him down and pet him in the other room cause he is often still very angry I allowed this! This seems a lot but you also have to understand when it’s just us, he is the best cat I’ve ever owned! So affectionate and loving! He sleeps with me, lays on my chest, he grooms me and my daughter all day if you’d let him. He shows no signs of any problem until someone walks in our home. He is fixed, has been since very young. He has been around other cats with no issue, used to go outside (close to door) he seemed very scared of loud noises and cars so for fear of getting scared and running in the streets, he stays in now. I don’t know what to do. I want other people to get to know the sweet boy I know!! Any suggestions as to why he’s doing this?? What can I do to help him relax when people are over? Even if no one can pet him, just stop attacking everyone!
