My cat is so aggressive that she chased me out of my own home. I’m losing patience and I’m scared. Please help.(r/Pets)
Have you tried this kind of toy? It may keep her further from your bodies when she plays and less like to redirect toward you.
I would recommend that when you play with her that at any sign of ‘you’ becoming the toy, play immediately stops and you either leave the room, or, if that makes her chase your feet, you stand still, arms folded, head up, until she calms down or leaves. Alternately, your fiance could remove her, calmly, from the room and shut her in a bedroom for 15 min or so.
Wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, and shoes to try to keep the damage to a minimum.
Don’t act like prey. Don’t scuff your feet, flap your hands, or make high pitched sounds – these may trigger her aggression. If you do and she reacts, stop. Of course if she’s doing damage, do whatever you need to protect yourself.
Do look into the pheromones. I’ve heard from many people that they work, though I’ve never tried them myself.
You may want to try interacting with her by training her to do things… Like teaching her to sit on a chair or something. That could give you two a way to bond that isn’t likely to lead to violence.
Try getting her a bunch of scratching posts and stop getting her nails trimmed. It’s not worth it, since she can hurt you either way.
Oh, I hope you can work this out. 🙂 And I don’t blame you for freaking out when she attacked you, I would, too, if one of mine did that.
