Has she always been like this or is this a recent development?

If it started suddenly, she may be sick, injured or otherwise in pain. Only a vet visit can tell you what is wrong for sure.

Re: why does my cat not like me or anyone!

i agree with the above, sudden onset can be caused by illness and pain.

I note you said 6 weeks old.... This is WAY to early for a kitten to be removed from its mother. If she has been removed at 6 weeks.... im not suprised she is showing signs of behavioural disorders. Shes probably scarred from it, unsure and frightened still. Behavioural prblems due to being taken from a queen too soon can manifest in may ways. Fright of sound, excessive 'suckling' or cloths, fingers, ears etc, the cat mimiking feeding off its parent. Some cats become timid and afraid of everything. Other can become defensive and agressive.

Put it in this way.... how would you feel if someone suddenly took you from your mum? you hate them too right?.... if this is the case then it may take a long time for your cat to come round to its new life. love and care will get you there.... eventually.

Re: why does my cat not like me or anyone!

Some kittens weve rescued have alot of feral in them. Even though they are socialized if I have to travel and leave them alone without alot of interaction they start being skiddish. Maybe your kitty needs it boundaries gentlely push with mild attention to get her comfortable again?

When they growl like that its a warning so something has to be up. Either its in pain or uncomfortable with the attention. But I think you can bring her back around to being happy being touched.

It was very sweet of you to rescue this kitten after its mom got killed. It probably wouldnt of survived otherwise. You are a kind soul.

chloe's the same sometimes, we really dont know if you she was feral when we took her in because we just found her outside our door @ 3 in the morning, didnt know she was dumped or wandered in, but she does have moments like you are explaining...

6 weeks is young to be taken away from mom, but there are so many abandoned cats out there it's highly possible the mom wasn't around. I've had my cat since he was about 3-5 days old. He was found abandoned at my work and they were going to take him to animal control where he would have been euthanized. I took him home and bottle fed him along with helping him go to the bathroom. He turned out just fine. Since her cat is older and just started acting this way it doesn't seem like it's because of the age it was taken from mom.
