My cat hides, poops and pees on himself when a certain person is around.

I think you cat is showing with their behavior that they are extremely scared of the other person.

Cats only show this type of behavior when they are very scared.

I cannot say why they would be scared of someone as that would only be speculation.

How long has this been going on?

Is your cat eating ok?

Has there been an injury or anything that has happened to start the odd behavior?

For couple days and I don't know it's just that one person and I think he hurt him but I'm not sure I wasn't home but this is not how my cat is
Cat Veterinarian: Veterinarian101, Cat Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

So every time he sees a certain person he poops and urinates? Is that correct?

He is hiding from you and won't come out?

I would be very concerned that this person could have hurt your cat. I would not let this person around your cat anymore.

You might want to see if your local veterinarian accepts Care Credit, and then you can see if you qualify. You can apply online.

You could also contact your local humane society and see if they can help.
