Attention-Seeking Behavior in Cats


attention seeking behavior in cats

Attention-seeking behavior can occur in any cat at any age but during my consultations I’ve seen it most often in cats who don’t receive adequate stimulation or who are left alone for longer periods.

Signs of Attention-Seeking Behavior in Cats

In general, a cat who is trying to get your attention will resort to whatever works. Typical behaviors include:



Jumping up to be at your level

Walking around and between your legs

Stealing objects, knocking things off tables

Biting (usually an inhibited bite)
