My cat hates company?

My cat hates it when we have company over, she goes nuts! She turns from a nice curious kitty to having a MAJOR hissy fit. And than she hates EVERYONE while the company is here. My sister and bro in law are coming for the weekend, they were here last weekend and my cat was a real witch and yeah. I am wondering is there anything I can give her to make her calm down? Any natural anti hissyfit meds? Anything??? Can I give her like 1/3 of a small benadyrl? Thanks

You could try stuff called Kitty-Calm-Down. from the smell of it, I think its watered down low-quality vodka. But at the same time, this isn't that unusual. To a cat, company that isn't there regularly can seem like an invasion of the home. Plus, cats have a limited capability to count (with most research saying they know 4 numbers: 1, 2, many, and uncountable millions; this is why zebra stripes are so effective), so they may be getting scared of how many people there are in the house in general. I know one cat who is very much like this.

There is really no medicine that can change your cats attitude. Start out with smaller groups of people coming over. Don't have anyone lean over her or pet her or anything. Just sort of leave her alone to explore the people around her. If she gets violent, then put her in a close doored room with a cat box, food, and water until company is gone.

NEVER give ANY animal medication intended for human consumption! You should go and talk to your vet if it's that bad. My cat gets like that too! I have a closet door open for her when I have company come over, she likes to go hide in there! Woks great for the both of us!

there are some aroma sents out there at pet stores stating it will calm your cat down. Never tried it. I always put my cat away and allow her privacy...if she wants to come out when company is over, that's fine. I don't push any attention on her that she doesn't want. It stresses a cat out when people are over that it doesn't want to interact with.

Cats are creatures of habit, anything that disrupts their world (strange people in the house, new baby, new puppy, new kitten) can set them off.

DO NOT GIVE ANIMALS DRUGS THAT ARE INTENDED FOR HUMANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT COULD BE FATAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Besides, cats are mainly antisocial creatures. My cat does the same thing, and unfortunately, there's nothing you can do.
