All cat owners know the most obvious sign of a scared cat: the cat shy away from people, hides whenever someone visits. What is she does not? How does it look when a scared cat stays and faces what scares him?
The cat in the below video was scared by a girl who was a guest on that day.
Though the cat may look fat, he is not. Scared cats used to buff up to scare off the thing that scares them.
You may also notice his dilated pupils and the overall vocal behaviour. This along with puffed out fur shows that the cat is very scared.
Have you ever heard a cat being vocal like this one in the video?
