Hello everyone. I just registered because I really need some help/advice. I have raised my cat Miyu nearly from birth. She was barely longer than my hand when I got her. She always followed me around everywhere and would sleep in my lap or on my bed beside me. She would groom herself and then hop up on my chest a lick my beard (i guess she was grooming me) and then go to sleep. In the past month or so, she has been strictly sleeping under the bed. Any time I try to pet her she dips/ducks away from my hand. If I pick her up, she hisses and squalls. She won't have anything to do with me unless I've got food or one of her favorite toys in my hand. I have had cats my whole life and never have had one act like this before. She tries to use the bathroom right beside the litter box instead of in it. I also noticed she is constantly flipping her tail back and forth (i read this means she is mad?). The last month or so has been miserable as I feel my cat hates me. What can I do?
