My guess is he’s confused and ill.  My cats act totally differently when they’re sick.  Maybe he couldn’t smell you guys very well and was confused.  Have you kept up on vaccinations (rabies and the like)?

@KatNYC2011: No idea what it could but, but such a drastic change in behavior is definitely worth getting checked out – I’m glad you already have an appointment!  They’ll probably offer to do bloodwork, to see if anything major is off; if they do, DO IT.  Even if it’s pricey, it can give them a lot of good info.  Do you have other pets at home?  Any other major changes?  Keep us updated!  Good luck.

I pretty much act like that when i get sick =]. Sounds like your cat’s ear mites are driving him so batty he doesn’t want to be bothered. As long as he’s up to date on everything (distemper shots, etc), neutered, etc, it makes sense that he’s just a sicky baby.

@KatNYC2011: Just don’t get yourself worked up. I’m sure the vet will figure it out. I freaked out last week because my dog was acting weird and I was just sure he’d blown a disk in his back or something… turns out he just pulled a muscle. I got a $5.55 prescription for muscle relaxers for him and an order to restrict his activity and he’s on the mend…. sometimes things really do work out the easiest/best/(and even cheapest) way!

Hooray!  I’m glad it wasn’t anything serious.  Good luck de-waxing.  That sounds….fun.  I think I might invest in a pair of welding gloves.  😉

I’m glad he’s ok and it was nothing major 🙂

Yay! I’m really glad it isn’t something serious. I second the welding gloves.

OR heavy duty “rose pruning” gloves.

Awww great news! My favourite method for giving a cat pills, checking teeth, etc, is to get on my knees, stick the cat between my legs (stradling him) and put my ankles together, so your sort of sitting on/stradling the cat. He can’t back up because of your butt/feet, and then you can hold him in place with one hand while you pill or whatever with the other. Most of the time the cat is so confused about why you’re sitting on them the pill part is done before they get a chance to get mad 😉
