Reduce Your Fear of Cats With Subliminal Messages
They look like heavenly sweet creatures until they start gnawing on your sofa and clothes, scratching on your antique furniture and doors, running around like a headless chicken, and, worse, biting your arms and legs. Indeed, your fear of cats is completely justified.
But you also know that you cannot let it rule you. After all, you cannot really take care of your pet properly if you’re fearful of it. How can you reduce your fears? Here are some tips:
Get a clean bill of health. Biting and scratching are usually behavioural, but they may also be signs of an underlying illness. Since cats cannot communicate on human level, they try to show their pain and suffering in other ways. That’s why if your cat loves to bite and scratch a lot, bring him to the vet first and have him checked. If there’s nothing wrong with him, then you know that the reason is his behaviour.
Know the reasons for biting and scratching. It’s normal for cats to bite and scratch, and they normally do these often as they get older. They bite for a lot of reasons too, such as when they feel threatened or scared, when they’re too excited or stimulated, or when they don’t want anyone to enter into their territory. They also do so if they have not been trained to socialize. In fact, biting can be a form of fun and play for them.
If you’re scared of biting, you may want to reduce the things that over stimulate him, such as toys and your own hands and feet. Don’t give him a belly rub with your bare hands and feet. Else, he would think your body parts are toys. It’s advisable to schedule a playtime with him, and make sure he releases all his energy. By tiring him out, you can calm him. Slowly socialize with your cat by patting his head, stroking his body, and not throwing him off the floor if he starts to climb on your lap.
Get an anti-rabies shot. One of the biggest reasons why you don’t want a cat bite is you fear of rabies. Unless you’re adopting a stray cat and you have no idea if he has been vaccinated, you have no reason to fear. Nevertheless, you can always obtain a pre-exposure prophylaxis shot from an infectious diseases specialist.
Condition your mind. Cats are generally sweet, and it’s unfortunate if you cannot see that before you fear them. A good way to allay your fears is by having a proper mind-set. You can do that by using Subliminal Messages.
Affirmations like “My cat is healthy and happy. There’s nothing to be afraid of” introduce subliminal messages that can assist in changing your negative thinking into something positive. You cannot really expect these types of messages to really work at first, but the more you repeat them and the more you put your trust in them, the more they become real and truthful to you. Whenever you sense the fear creeping up, speak these affirmations.
