My Kitten's wont come near me after i enjoy a few wine's with the girls. it break my heart. Why is this?!

Question: My Kitten's wont come near me after i enjoy a few wine's with the girls!. it break my heart!. Why is this!?
I am NOT a big Drinker!. Like maybe once a week, perhaps more fortnightly tho monthly will I go out and enjoy a wine or five with the girl's!. But since i have my beautiful two little kitten's (which are treated like royally, and cant imagine anyway i can treat them better!!) everytime both (particularly one) will back away from me and wont cuddle me or pay the same normal affection i usually get!. This break's my heart as I would NEVER EVER treat them bad, they all i have!. have heard dogs dislike alcohol, are cat's the same!? Is this why my darling's are backing away and wont snuggle in bed, or purr in my ear at sleep time if i have had a drink!? Please help, i would never hurt them!. I offer them my hand when i come home to make them realise i wont hurt, yet it seems its not enough to gain their trust!!!!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

It could be that when you've been drinking, your body language is just different enough that something seems "off" to the kittens!. And because they're still small, to them the safest thing to do is just keep their distance until they can figure out what's going on with their human!.

Keep on treating the kittens consistently nice, and as they grow up they'll figure out that you're OK (and it's still you and not some stranger) even when you've had a few glasses of wine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Are you smoking or near people who are!? Cats will certainly smell and avoid that!.

In any case, it's probably a smell, could also be the way you're acting, it's out of sync with what they see as normal, so they back off!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


Big deal!. So the cats don't like alcohol!. They will survive!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

they're probably just mad because you weren't home with them!

My bunnies are the same way!. I think they can tell that there is something different about you!. At first they might be shy, so they can see what's going on!. Then you think they are scared or something, so you try to calm them and they think you are being weird, so they decide to stay away until you mood changes!. Then the next time you smell like wine, they figure the same thing is going to happen, so they stay away, but you keep trying to get them to come near, and it's just weird for them!.
Hope that makes sense!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Remember, cats remember you based on your scent!. So two things:

1) Where are you drinking!? If it's in a bar, the scent of the bar might throw off the cats!.

2) They may dislike the smell of wine!. Or, perhaps you've drank too much and they don't appreciate your loudness! :-DWww@FoodAQ@Com
