We figured out why cats can be aggressive during quarantine
During quarantine we spend a lot of time with our cats at home, so we see how their behaviour changes due to our 24/7 presence at home. When kittens bite and scratch, this is a normal stage in their development.
So they learn the world around them and try to exist in it, reacting to what is happening. If they are not taught the rules of behavior at an early age, they will not know when to release their claws and show their teeth inappropriately. But sometimes it’s bites that can tell about important aspects of a pet’s life: his well-being, mood, or even illnesses.
Bemorepanda understood when a cat’s “bite” means that it’s better to leave it alone, and when we should pay attention to this gesture. Especially during self-isolation, cats and their owners are inseparable, in this circumstances our cats can become more aggressive and bite us.
Each cuteness has a time limit.
Unlike dogs, cats often have a low tolerance for caresses and can quickly get tired of attention. The length of time stroking to switch from pleasant to annoying depends on the pet. But when the boiling point is reached, he reacts as if in pain. Experts call this petting-induced aggression.
What to do: stop on time. From the cat you can easily understand that it is unhappy with what is happening. Let it calm down and bounce back.
Sensitive hearing prevents relaxation.
Cats are sensitive to any noise. Computer and television screens, dimmers, fluorescent lights, remote controls and electronic collars for pest control can emit high-frequency sounds that are inaudible to humans but annoying cats.
What to do: if possible, eliminate extraneous noise, and it is better to listen to music in headphones.
Human singing is not for delicate cat ears.
If you choose from what to listen to, then cats would prefer something as calm as possible or a melody consisting of cat sounds. A singing person does not produce the best effect on them. If your favorite song does not sound like meow, then your pet will probably not be impressed with such a “performance”.
What to do: look at the reaction of the cat. It happens that some of them like the voice of the owner, but more often the opposite happens. In this case, you have to chant where there is no pet.
Your cat may be allergic to you.
Cats can be allergic to many things, and sometimes it’s hard to figure out what exactly causes discomfort. Often the cause may be human dandruff. If, being next to people, the cat begins to sneeze, gasp, behave inappropriately, then it is likely that she has an allergic reaction to something related to them.
What to do: seek help and advice from a veterinarian.
Frequent kisses are not fun.
Most cats consider constant smacking as a challenge, which can lead to even more aggressive reaction during subsequent manifestations of human affection. Most often, hostility can be seen in young, energetic cats taken early from the litter, as well as those who remain alone for a long time throughout the day.
What to do: restrain love impulses and monitor the behavior of the pet during the next caresses. First you need to pay enough attention to the cat on a regular basis, and then climb to kiss at every convenient opportunity.
Jealousy for cell phone and other things.
Cats can show signs of jealousy when the owner pays more attention to an object, another person or animal. Especially if the time for a new interaction is chosen one that was previously spent on playing with a pet. A jealous cat can easily come up and knock the phone out of her hands or start biting and scratching in protest.
What to do: allocate time and pay attention to the animal every free moment. Get some interactive toys, fountain sticks, or laser pointers that let you play with your cat.
Boredom and doing nothing leave a choice.
From boredom, a cat can begin to nibble wires, chew plants, bite a person. It is impossible to give the pet attention around the clock. And, even if you really try and devote all possible free time to him, this may still not be enough. Then you have to put up with the wild imagination of the animal.
What to do: buy toys that the cat could play with on its own. But it is better to refuse ringing trinkets: you are unlikely to want to hear in the night how the restless pet is having fun.
From time to time it’s important to show who is the boss in the house
Domination for cats is one of the main behavioral features. The less opportunities they have in childhood to play and interact with people and other animals, the more authoritarianism can manifest themselves on their part. This is because they simply have not learned to control and limit themselves.
What to do: discourage any manifestation of dominance. Do not let your cat bite or grab you, use the punishment for such behavior.
Bites as a way to report pain.
If the cat, which until then had a calm attitude towards stroking by the owner, begins to bite during caresses, then maybe something hurts her. This may be a small wound that is not visible due to fluffy hair.
What to do: carefully check the cat for damage, without jerking it or causing discomfort. It is also worth paying attention to whether he began to lick any part of the body especially carefully, which he had not done before. It is likely that in that place the pet feels pain.
Too playful mood.
Of course, the easiest way to play with the cat is to make a "formidable hand" and attack the kitty. When it is still a kid, it is fun, but as soon as it has grown up, such a habit ceases to be cute and playful.
What to do: make sure that you do not accustom it to play with arms or legs.
Here is the quarantine center for cats that have coronavirus!
Dozens of felted, spotted, colored and pampered cats have arrived at the world's first veterinary clinic to hospitalize and treat cats with COVID-19. The head of the Russian National Veterinary Service, Nikolai Vlasov, approved the testing of cats and their immediate quarantine.
Russia faces a wave of more than 8,500 new cases of coronavirus each day and has 387,700 people infected and 4,400 people who have died from the killer virus. Authorities have conducted 10 million tests so far and for a week have been testing the pets of people who have been diagnosed with the relentless disease. The head of the Russian National Veterinary Service, Nikolai Vlasov, had to approve the testing of cats after several were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Recently, the first quarantine center for cats was inaugurated in Moscow and houses 46 specimens that had the killer virus in their noses and throats, informs RT. Until recently, cats could be quarantined with their owners who had mild symptoms of COVID-19.
But the virus is spreading rapidly among cats and there are no clinical tests to confirm that the cat virus cannot be transmitted to humans. Vlasov said that in his opinion, the cat is "the end point of transmitting the virus", but that this must be confirmed by laboratory tests. Meanwhile, the 46 specimens are treated and after about 6 days show visible signs of recovery.
No cats developed severe forms of the disease and developed immunity to the virus. Among the quarantined cats, Saşa, Olea and Tişa are the most pampered because they enjoy the full attention of the nurses who rarely put a mask on their face in their presence. A study by British researchers confirmed in early May that cats can get COVID-19, but is unlikely to get severe.
Coquettish and with a protective mask! Celebrities perfectly matched their protective masks with their clothing
Who says you can't look good if you cover most of your face with a face mask? The rules of protection against infection with the new coronavirus do not prevent the ladies from the royal families or with high positions in the state to be chic. At the first official engagements during the pandemic, Queen Mathilde of Belgium and the President of Slovakia perfectly matched their protective mask with their clothing.
Queen Mathilde of Belgium (46 years old) recently adopted a bold outfit, with an asymmetrical blouse and intense orange pants, at a meeting with women entrepreneurs from a flower farm. It is the queen's third public engagement since the quarantine was established in Belgium, a country severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
In fact, the queen's visit to Gediflora aimed to address this topic, the impact of coronavirus on the business in Belgium. Coquettish, Mathilde accessorized her outfit with oversized earrings, a gold bracelet, a clutch with green finishes and green sandals.
But the most important accessory was the protective mask, which the queen took care to match with the rest of the outfit.
Slovakian president accused of turning a face mask into an aesthetic accessory.
Zuzana Čaputová, the president of Slovakia, made people angry at the end of March, when she matched her protective mask with a garnet dress, during a political event held in Bratislava. At the time, Slovakia had reported 186 cases of infection with the new coronavirus, and there were many who criticized the president's flirtation.
Other voices have argued that her gesture could be a source of inspiration, especially for young people, who treat the coronavirus pandemic with too much relaxation. In fact, Zuzana's image was compared to the famous Mileena from "Mortal Kombat".
Known for impeccable clothing taste, Queen Letizia of Spain taught a lesson in adequacy during the coronavirus pandemic. On a working visit with her husband, King Felipe, on the largest fresh food distribution platform in Spain, Letizia impressed with her sober, practical outfit and perfectly adapted to the new rules of protection.
While interacting with the workers on the platform, Letizia wore a protective mask and black gloves, matched with black pants and blouse. In fact, at one point, he waved his elbow to avoid direct contact with workers.
Who said quarantine should be boring? The sensational idea of a mother to avoid routine.
Who said that isolation at home during the COVID-19 pandemic must be boring, become a nightmare and a torment? Young mother Rachael Havenhand woke up locked up in the house with her two 8- and 5-year-old daughters and had a sensational idea.
While most of the countries are starting to each quarantine restrictions, there are still many families that are scared to go out and return to their old life. According to wordmeters.info, there are currently almost 5 million confirmed cases and more than 323.715 deaths, while around 2% of those people infected are either in serious or critical condition.
On top of the list, we see the US with 93,110 deaths, followed by the UK with 35,681 cases and Italy with almost 33.000 victims. The good news is that we see the number of new infections going down, which means that the quarantine restrictions that have been implemented are starting to take effect.
As the gyms and fitness centers are yet to stay closed for the foreseeable future, Rachael Havenhand (28) from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK, is a fitness instructor and has been forced to stay home for two weeks now. Since mid-March, the British government has ordered the closure of cinemas and theaters.
Self-isolated overnight with her two daughters Gabriella (8 years old) and Florence (5 years old), Rachael took her cellphone and bought a lot of "decorative nonsense" from eBay. She did not spend more than 300 pounds and woke up to the door with over 200 kg of brightly colored objects.
Helped by the two little girls, the mother got on the job and turned the oppressive and colorful house anost in beige and cream shades into a real Barbie doll house.
"We spend a lot of time in the kitchen because here girls do their homework and here they spend 4-5 hours a day preparing snacks or food. So I started the decorations with the kitchen, then followed the hall, the living room, the stairs and the bedroom, ”Havenhand told the Daily Mail.
After the house was filled with colors, the mood of the house changed radically. The colors he used were pink, purple, green with several shades, blue, cherry and yellow.
And because the entire house has become a toy for the three housewives, they continue to use their creativity to the full and still paint the walls with abstract shapes and childish designs, which, later, Mother Rachael transforms into murals. Obviously, after the girls fall asleep.

You will need a spray container where you can keep the solution;
A graduated container to make the necessary measurements;
Household rubber gloves;
A nose and mouth protection mask. This way you will avoid inhaling chlorine vapors. If you do not have a mask, you can use a scarf, a handkerchief, a handkerchief, any textile material that will prevent you from inhaling the vapors;
