Is your cat spoiled?

To determine if your cat is a spoiled brat, there are some specific behaviors it will exhibit. It will also leave you with some signs that could indicate that your cat is spoiled:

  • Excessive demand for attention: If your cat always seeks your attention and becomes restless or annoyed when he doesn’t get it, it could be a sign of spoiled behavior. A well-behaved cat may enjoy your company, but will also be able to entertain itself and spend time alone.
  • Aggressive behavior or nibbling: A spoiled cat may show aggression when it does not get what it wants. This could include biting, scratching, or acting violently when frustrated.
  • Damage and misbehavior: If your cat damages furniture, curtains or other household objects and ignores corrections, it could be a sign of spoiled behavior. Well-behaved cats are generally less likely to cause property damage. That is, if your cat is destroying objects in your house, then it is a sign that he is spoiled. Cats generally do not destroy objects if they have been taught correctly.
