Fear-motivated Aggression

Fear-motivated aggression occurs when the cat is scared and cannot flee. It can also happen after a bad experience. Anxiety-motivated aggression can be prevented by ensuring proper socialization (letting the mother stay with her for a long time, having a lot of contact with people). When a cat is punished in an anxiety situation when it shows aggression, the aggression will get worse. Better is to prevent frightening situations, not soothe but ignore anxiety behavior (with relieving, you confirm the alleged anxiety situation) and possibly give medication.
