Woman Always Tries Not To Scare Her Jittery Cat But Her Husband Seems Uncooperative, So She Asks Reddit

Believe it or not, some cats are always shy and fearful. Experts have suggested that fearfulness in cats is due to a number of different factors. It can be negative associations cats experienced in early life. A kitty that used to be abused is harder to trust its human companion than other normal ones. Another factor is the cat’s genetic patterns in which cats with a higher level of arousal need a longer time to calm down or get used to the new environment.

Reddit user Lucky_Kangaroo_ and her husband are raising a jittery cat like that. Chloe is an adopted cat that gets frightened easily and dislikes being picked up.

Lucky_Kangaroo_ is a huge cat lover, and she is trying to give her family cat the most comfortable zone to lessen her fearfulness. Meanwhile, her husband doesn’t seem to make an effort.

To be more specific, the woman shares in her post that he often picks up the cat, holds her for a long time, and chases after her. Chloe is afraid of him, and if she is forced to stay with him for a long time, she’ll pee herself.

Upon his wife’s frustration, the husband says if Chloe doesn’t want to be cuddled up, she should not live as a domestic cat. He even blames the woman for defending their cat instead of him. Therefore, Lucky_Kangaroo_ asks the r/AITA community if she’s wrong to require her husband to respect the cat.
