We just had a full moon and Layla said, I was acting loony. Apparently 42.19 % of pet parents report loony behavior in their cats during a full moon such as…
increased vocalization. Guilty as charged. Staring intently at nothing. Maybe. Running around like crazy. No, I’m too old for that. Displaying more aggressive behavior. Me, aggressive? Never! I’m a lover not a fighter.
However, one 2007 study on canine and feline emergency room visits in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical reported an increase in emergency room visits for pet cats and dogs during the full moon. But this is something to keep in mind, if you have cats who act like lunatics around the full moon. Since cats often mirror their humans’ behavior, it makes sense. I know Layla is way more hyper and sensitive during the full moon and especially the day before, so I can blame my behavior on her hehehe.
Do you or you cats go a little loony during the full moon?
