There’s a reason why “scaredy cat” is such a common phrase. The list of things that can cause anxiety and stress in cats is pretty long, and can include loud noises, trips to the veterinarian, and moving to a new home. While most cats are initially wary of unfamiliar noises, people or events, they eventually adapt as they get used to the stimulus. However, some cats remain anxious.

They offer suggestion on how to calm a scared cat, how to help cats stay calm at night so you can get a good night’s sleep, how to make car rides less stressful, and how to help a cat adjust after a move.
