Answer
Hi
often cats who are afraid react with aggression. So it sounds like something has upset your cat. it could simply be that someone new has come into your home and the smell of of them has worried your cat, this is not unusual.

i would give the whole house a good clean to remove any strange smells and also I would give your cat some space, allow them to be on their own. Also allow the cat to come to you rather than the other way round. i have a page about how to bond with a cat here

/new-cat.html

Give your cat some time and I'm sure they will settle down.

best wishes Kate
