Oh no! Your actions have deeply offended your cat, and now it does not even allow you to approach it! Fortunately, it’s possible to earn a cat’s forgiveness.
#1 Choose the right time to apologize.
If you see that the cat is angry, you need to give it a little time before approaching and apologizing.
#2 Find out the cause of resentment.
If you offended a cat by teasing it, you should offer it a treat or praise it.
If you accidentally stepped on a cat’s tail or frightened it by dropping a pan, it might be enough just to hug it.
If you have taken a cat’s favorite place on the couch, you can give way and give the cat a treat.
#3 Approach the cat slowly.
If a cat runs away from you, it may still be angry with you, upset, or scared. Do not chase the cat, instead try again a few minutes later.
#4 Talk to the cat.
Tell: "Forgive me." You can name the cat by name. Make sure your voice is soft and calm; use a slightly higher tone than usual. Although the cat does not understand your words, it will understand your tone. Do not speak in a loud, piercing voice: cats have a very sensitive hearing, and in this way you will only cause irritation.
#5 Try to blink slowly.
The cat that trusts you blink slowly. By doing the same, you show the cat that you trust it.
#6 Gently pet the cat where it likes.
Be sure to pay attention to the mood of the cat: if the cat seems angry or upset, do not touch it.
