Families always have their arguments, and for some reason whenever I'M having an argument (disagreement causing to loud voices) with any of my family members my cat suddenly appears and gets a little fussy, movative, and has a curious face. She starts sniffing me, and if I continue, she may bite softly ( in fact too soft for a bite). Of course I realized she's stressed out, and for her sake, I always shut up and stop arguing and pet her. This also happens when I'm scolding my little siblings.
Now the problem here is that our house is kind of a noisy place (not to the point the cat shouldn't live with us, though). Kids at the age of 10 and 5 may scream at each other angrily and chase each other aggressively. Even adults may argue, but my cat never responds to any of them. However, whenever I come to settle things and start scolding the kids or even getting myself into some little quarrel with any of them or the adults, my cat displays the behaviour expressed before, even if she was in the furthest room away from me.
Now I have but two questions on this matter:
Why is my cat displaying this behaviour (I'm not screaming or even looking at her at the time by the way, so I guess she shouldn't see it as aggression even though I'd be mad at the moment)?
Why doesn't my cat display this behaviour to anyone else in the family (though they all get their disagreements and quarrels, and she's been with them since birth, although I was the one to take care of her since then because she was an orphan)?
I believe this same cat attitude was described in another question on this site, but the question was about snorting and not screaming or scolding.
Her ears aren't to the back. She looks even happy when she jumps all around although I know she isn't. Suddenly she's all nice and sweet and just wants to sniff me, but if I continue she'll bite. She does not do this to any other family member, although they are her family and she likes them as family just like me, not some sort of strangers. She's usually afraid of strangers and doesn't come out until some time has passed and she's used to the stranger. She herself scolds the kids when they keep rubbing her stomach or carry her in some annoying way (she makes noises, no hissing though, and pretends to bite to scare off her annoying siblings (human ones.) However, it doesn't always work, since they think she's just being cute) and she wouldn't dare do that to a stranger. She may hiss at them, though, and treat them as threats if they do something crazy, but never does that to her family.
What I'm trying to point out is that I believe she loves her family and doesn't just ignore them because she isn't used to them or something. She ignores their arguments and almost never let me have one.
