Around this age just before a year old, some cats do get very skittish. Every human babies who would go to anyone, often "make strange" around a year old and don't want anyone holding them except mommy. I remember having a couple of show kittens who showed beautifully as younger kitties, and then at ten months got skittish and didn't like shows any more. Some of these kitties after some months I took to shows again and they were fine. Just a strange stage they go through---not all of them do but seems a few do. I think it's rarely a permanent state, but it is puzzling when there seems to be no reason for the behaviour when nothing's changed.
