Aggressive cats

When selecting a pet, it's essential to consider the characteristics of the breed. For instance, Mekong Bobtails and Redhairs are highly sociable and affectionate, forming an immediate attachment to their owners. On the other hand, Hausa and Savannahs may display aggression if touched when they are not in the mood.

In the context of "untamed" cats, it's crucial to recognize that owners sometimes misinterpret excessive playfulness as aggression, as the pet may unexpectedly "attack" your legs, scratch, or bite. OBOZREVATEL has delved into which breeds are prone to such playful behavior and why a cat's actions may suddenly turn aggressive.

Bengal Cat

The Bengal cat has inherited its somewhat wayward character from a wild ancestor, as this breed resulted from crossbreeding. Veterinarians suggest that current generations can be considered quite domesticated, but the "hunting" instincts of Bengals often manifest themselves.
