What does it mean when my cat grabs my arm?

Cats will grab a person's arm as a form of affection and/or seeking attention. It's a non-verbal form of communication and is common among cats when they want to show a bit of love to those around them. It's a wonderful sign if your cat is doing this and it might be a sign you are doing things right.

Why does my cat get aggressive out of nowhere?

Aggressive Behavior Changes A cat that is not normally prey-driven and is hissing, swatting, biting, and overall aggressive towards other pets and/or people is probably trying to tell you something. Pain and fear are often the reasons for a cat to have a behavior change that results in aggression.

Do cats try to dominate humans?

Aggressive responses seen in pet cats are closely related to the natural behaviour of the species and are a normal part of predation, play and social conflict. However, if cats start to show aggression towards humans then this would constitute 'problem behaviour'.

Do cats get possessive of their owners?

Yes, cats are possessive of their owners. While cats can be incredibly independent creatures, they are equally willing, and arguably happier, when bonded to their owners. Social interaction is vital for every pet; it is essential if you want a close bond with your cats.
