1. That’s all fine… But what about a stray that trusts you but then becomes aggressive to everyone including her kittens when she and her kittens are brought inside so they don’t freeze in the snow? They have everything they need even though she is pregnant again. I didn’t see anything about this in this article.

    1. It is not uncommon for cats who have been living on their own to be unsure or even scared when they are first brought into a new environment. This fear can sometimes manifest as aggression, particularly if the cat feels threatened or uncomfortable. In these situations, it is important to give the cat plenty of space and time to adjust to their new surroundings.

      One way to help a scared or aggressive cat to adjust to a new environment is to create a safe space for them where they can retreat if they feel overwhelmed or threatened. This might be a separate room or a large crate or kennel that is equipped with all of the things they need, such as a bed, litter box, food and water dishes, and toys. You can also help the cat to feel more comfortable by providing them with a variety of hiding places, such as cardboard boxes or pet tents, where they can go if they feel scared or anxious.

      It is also important to be patient and understanding with a scared or aggressive cat. Avoid making any sudden movements or loud noises that might startle them, and avoid staring directly at them or trying to touch them without giving them time to adjust to your presence. Instead, try to establish a routine that includes regular feeding and watering times, as well as regular litter box cleaning and other daily tasks. This can help the cat to feel more comfortable and secure in their new environment.

      Finally, consider seeking the advice of a veterinarian or a professional animal behaviorist if the cat’s aggression persists or becomes worse. They will be able to provide you with specific advice and guidance on how to help the cat to adjust to their new surroundings and how to address any underlying issues that may be contributing to their aggression.
