One of the most common questions that people ask is, “Why does my cat swat at me when I walk by?” It’s a question that has several possible answers. Cats have many different personalities and they react differently in various situations. However, there are some reasons why cats might be more likely to swat than others.
In this post we’ll discuss why your cat swats at you when you walk by, what to do about it if it happens often, and how to help prevent it from happening again in the future.
Reason #0: Your cat doesn’t like something about you
Cats communicate in many different ways, the most common being visual. Cats have excellent vision and they can see all of the details on your face – including wrinkles, hair color, pimples or other blemishes. It may be that there’s a part of your face (or body) that your cat finds displeasing for some reason and he/she is swatting at it to try to get away from you. This behavior could also signify anxiety related issues such as fearfulness or aggression. One thing to keep in mind when dealing with this type of situation is not to punish the cat but instead take him/her to the veterinarian so she/he can determine the problem.
The assumption is that your cat doesn’t like you, but cats can also be playful and just swat things in front of them. The best way to know for sure is by paying attention to the context when he does it. If your cat only swats at you from behind a door or while hiding under furniture, then this may not be an issue with aggression at all! It’s possible they’re trying to play without hurting you too much so don’t take offense if their claws are retracted (or maybe they have none!).
It might seem easy enough to figure out why the cat is behaving aggressively towards someone:
They don’t like me because I’m mean?
They want more food?
They want me to play with them?
Maybe they just don’t like that I have a new pet in the house?
The truth is, it can be hard to tell why your cat may not be getting along well with you. A lot of cats will swat at people when they walk by or if someone gets too close for their comfort level – even if there’s no negative intention involved! Cats might also become aggressive because of stressors such as change in environment or other animals coming into their territory. If this happens often and doesn’t seem to resolve from distance alone, then you should consult a veterinarian about an appropriate course of treatment before matters get worse.
