Your little kitten might look like a cute little bundle of fluff, but she’ll do anything she can to avoid a fight.
Your little kitten might look like a cute little bundle of fluff, but she’ll do anything she can to avoid a fight. Like her big cat cousins, she’s naturally solitary and dependent on herself for survival, so conflict is the last thing she wants.
One trick your kitten might use to frighten a potential opponent is making herself look bigger than she actually is. That means fluffing up her tail as big as possible, arching her back and standing sideways-on. But, big and scary as she might look, it’s really just a great big bluff – your kitten really isn’t looking for a fight!
Alternatively, your kitten might take the opposite approach, trying to make herself as small as possible in the hope that she can’t be seen. As a last resort when she feels threatened, she’ll simply run away in the opposite direction!
