My cat has suddenly gone from a relaxed, happy cat into one

Customer Question

My cat has suddenly gone from a relaxed, happy cat into one that is tiptoeing around the house, afraid of her own shadow. She startles easily and sneaks up on her cat tower and food dish like they are going to bite her. She is like this in the house and in the back yard, but not so much in the front yard. She is 2 yrs old, spayed, healthy, has all her shots, no kids or other pets in the household. She does not seem to be physically injured, just mentally. Obviously something scared her badly. Is there anything a vet can do for her? Will she eventually get over this and be herself?
