Cat aggression is one of the most common behavior problems. Aggression can lead to serious medical issues. A bite or scratch can get infected and painful and in rare circumstances can become “cat scratch fever.” This holds true for both humans and cats who come in contact with an aggressive cat. If you have an aggressive cat, it’s important to address this behavior immediately, before it becomes a bigger problem.
Aggressive cats can be dangerous to be around and aggressive cats are one of the many reasons it’s better to keep your pet cats indoors instead of letting them roam the neighborhood.

This is one of the many reasons people give their cats up to shelters or turn them out on the street and many times the humans themselves have instigated the violent behavior to begin with.
