Don't cats operate a lot by smell? I always attribute changes in mood to smelling something the cat didn't like. I know my Pippi doesn't like my hand lotion. AT ALL. Whenever I use it, she hisses.

That doesn't sound like mania nor depression. Cats don't have a way of telling us they've had enough, except by biting or scratching so that we get the message. They probably have caught on that rabbit-kicks won't do them much good because it's so cute when they do it.

Lately my cat is also with some mood changes.
I was not yet able to stablish a relation with anything really.
He can be from half sleep, being pet, simply quiet in his corner or walking around. And suddenly he would put his hears back, eyes completely open and attack me or my boyfriend. The normal warning does not work when he's like this.
As he hates to be alone, today my boyfriend ground him for 10min after each attack (today he did 2) in the WC with the closed door.
He came out super quiet and lovely.
He's very intelligent so I'm hoping this psychology will work.
