Every new cat owner experiences the anxieties of having to look for their missing cat. It’s true as I have been there myself. It took me a while before I finally grasped my feline friend’s behavior. After a thorough research, consultations, and observations, I now understand as to why does my cat run away from me from time to time.
As with humans, I have learned that cats have personalities as well. This was a major surprise to me as I had initially viewed all cats to be quite asocial and initially thought that this answers my question as to why does my cat run away from me. This myth was dispelled Sharon L. Crowell-Davis, DVM, Phd., DACV, stating that cats, just like humans and dogs, are also social beings and they carry their own social patterns.
