Hi!! I'm Amanda, kitty mommy to 2 cats who are a little over 2 years old. We've had them since they were about 8 weeks old. My question is does anyone know why a cat would develop a fear of men? One of my cats is terrified of men...everytime one of my husbands friends comes over she hides under the couch or in another room until several hours after they leave. If a woman comes in our house its completely different. She will let them pet her and seems totally at ease. No man has ever been mean to her or treated her badly in any way and she is my husbands baby, so I just can't figure it out. The only thing I can think of is that about 5 months after we got them my husband left for Iraq, and there were no men around her for a little over a year, but as soon as my husband got back she went right to him and didn't act funny at all about him being home. Anyone know how I can get her more comfortable around men?? I hate to see her so stressed out just because a man is in our house. Thanks!
