Compulsive Behavior in Cats

compulsive behavior in cats

Cats who are exposed to stress on an ongoing basis are most susceptible to developing compulsive behaviors. It may begin as tail chasing or becoming fixated on playing with a laser light. In the case of laser light chasing, some cats then develop a behavior of chasing other flickering lights or reflections. This doesn’t mean that using a laser light with your cat will result in compulsive behavior but it’s something to watch for if you have a cat repeatedly exposed to stress, one who might be beginning to show signs of compulsive behavior, or if you exclusively use the laser light toy during playtime.
