sudden aggressive behavior
somethin odd happened the other night and i dunno if i shud be worried but im the type of person that needs an answer so im hoping for some thoughts/help. my cat is female, spayed, 5yrs old & been with me since a couple months old, domestic shorthair and is currently the only animal in my household...its been over a year and a half since we had another cat, she definately seems to prefer being the only cat.
i was about to get in the shower & hit the corner of the countertop and ripped my knee open, as im cussing and hollering my cat runs in and starts attacking my feets, ankles & calves! i kept pulling her off of me but she was relentless, i shut the bathroom door she busted through it, still attacking my feet. i got in the shower & she sat in the bathroom howling at me. she stopped the howling but sat and waited for me to get out of the shower then paced around the apartment for awhile but didnt attack anymore.
the night before she also attacked my arm for no reason...very agggressively leaving scratches and bruises. now she has at random times bitten me or played rough but never so bad to leave bruises or bleeding like she did. its been 2 days since the shower attack and she did attack once more last night, my foot while i was laying on the couch but just one good bite and she stopped.
i have no idea what is going on suddenly to make her act this way. the shower incident was really crazy and concerning. however, she does seem pretty normal since then..shes eating and playing and grooming like normal. im perplexed...any thoughts?
