3. Your pet is hiding
Every animal is different, but when your normally friendly pet starts going off by itself and hiding in holes, it is a bad sign.
The desire to cover could also be associated with feeling unwell, especially if the animal refuses to eat, has toilet issues, or other symptoms.
Another reason is severe stress.
If a cat tries to cover somewhere high, perhaps it’s being attacked by fleas.
One could also be pain, especially if the pet’s getting angry once you touch it.
Dental issues, arthritis, injuries, infections – these are just a couple of conditions which will alter a pet’s mood and cause it pain.
