Hello. I have a female cat, I adopted her about a half year ago, I think she’s around 1 year old or more ..
Lately she began to act very weird . Usually she lays on my chest a lot when I lay also,and we sort of “cuddle”.
She is the sweetest cat who likes to be petted and asks for it, she licks me, bumps and rubs her head at me etc ...
Now something happens and I don’t know why. She comes to me to like always and meows like always , lays on me and after a few minutes our eyes lock - then she stares a few seconds , back out and slaps me with her paw and claws on my face ... then runs away.
I got scared from that so now every time she comes to me and jumps at me I’m scared that when I start to pet her she will flip out at me
And I think she feels my fear or something because she is doing that every time now ..
first the stare at my eyes , then back with her body a little from me , slap and run..
What is this ?

Cats are predators but can also be prey which is why they have their 'radar' up all the time.

She probably thinks you're thinking of eating her, seriously. Rather than prolonged eye contact better to do the 'eye kiss' by slowing closing your eyes at her while looking away.

I notice my cats staring at me but they don't like me staring at them. When my male cat is staring at the female, he then runs at her and wants to pounce and not in a nice way.
Only other thing is not to pet too much and overstimulate. Usually you can tell by the tale.
Last I can think of is to make sure she is healthy.

Has your female cat be spayed? Some cats act out of character when they're coming into heat.
