Sasha is not the nicest cat, I will admit. But never has she disliked a person as much as she does my roomate!
My male friend moved in my apartment almost 2 months ago. I thought by now she would like him, but she seems to dislike him more and more with each day. Within the past half hour I have witnessed her hiss at him twice and swing her paw at him 4 times. and he didnt do anything but simply walk by her.
She hisses at him and bats at him often. She gives him menacing looks and runs away a lot when he comes near. But yet other times she will go up to him and rub herself against his leg. She will take treats from his hand, and she will play with her toys with him sometimes. He sometimes will feed her or change her water to show her that he is not a threat. But nothing seems to work. One minute she rubs up against him, she even on a very rare occasion has let him pet her head. But then other times she hisses at him, bats him, backs away from him and puffs out her hair as if he is a threat to her when he isnt even doing anything.
The weird thing is that Sasha normally takes to my male friends or ex's better when they have come over than she does female friends or relatives who come over.
Other male friends and boyfriends who have been over she hasnt necessarily taken nicely to them as in letting them pet her or such, but she seems to tolerate them and has never hissed at them or batted at them.
I dont understand what it could be about him that gives her such disdain. Maybe she doesnt like his personal body scent or something? I dont know. Anyone have any ideas on why she may not like him and what I can do to help her accept him? Or maybe it is because he lives here now, he is here al the time and she feels threatened by that, she doesnt want anyone living here with us?
