Your little kitten might look like a cute little bundle of fluff, but they'll do anything they can to avoid a fight. Like their big cat cousins, they're naturally solitary and dependent on themselves for survival, so conflict is the last thing they want.
Larger than life
One trick your kitten might use to frighten a potential opponent is making themselves look bigger than they actually are. That means fluffing up their tail as big as possible, arching their back and standing sideways-on. But, big and scary as they might look, it’s really just a great big bluff – your kitten really isn’t looking for a fight!
Meek and mild
Alternatively, your kitten might take the opposite approach, trying to make themselves as small as possible in the hope that they can’t be seen. As a last resort when they feel threatened, they'll simply run away in the opposite direction!
