He has always been a bit "wild" (but also super cuddly).

Customer Question

Hi. He has always been a bit "wild" (but also super cuddly). Lately he's gotten more anxious. Hissing a bit randomly. Low growl that sounds different than what we've heard before.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the cat?
Customer: He seems maybe more anxious than he used to? Mostly it's hissing at people that he knows and likes
JA: Where does the cat seem to hurt?
Customer: Doesn't seem to hurt anywhere. Just acting different
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: We let him outside sometimes, but only for a few hours at a time
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Gambit. Almost 1 year
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
