  • Visit The Veterinarian: Your veterinarian can check your cat and determine whether or not the aggression is related to a medical problem.
  • Take Precautions: You need to protect your loved ones and other pets, so supervise, confine or restrict your cat’s activities until you can get him professional help. T
  • Do Not Handle: Do not try to handle an aggressive or fearful cat, as you could wind up with scratches or bites.
  • Do Not Punish: Your cat’s aggression could be a result of fear, and punishing him may only strengthen that fear. This could result in your cat becoming more aggressive.
  • Seek Professional Help: Contact an animal behavior specialist to work with you and help solve the aggression problem.

You can discuss this problem with other pet-owners by posting on our Plaza Luxury Apartments Facebook page.

See How the Plaza Makes Foster City Living Eco-Friendly

Using sustainable materials to construct the buildings and conserving natural resources while the project was underway minimized excessive use of water, electricity and gas. The complex also used recycled wood-chip byproducts for joists and beams versus wood-frame construction. This was yet another way to be green, support forest growth, and lessening the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere.

During construction, the site promoted on-site recycling to lessen the burden on already over used landfills. With these steps put into place, The Plaza earned the level of “Gold” when meeting the standards for LEED certification.

Residents of The Plaza will also see savings in gas consumption by using the convenient mass transit system and access to Caltrain. If you’re a bike rider, there’s plenty of storage, nearby scenic trails, and a bike repair shop.

Our staff is standing by to answer any questions you may have about our community. Contact us for the latest information about availability, pricing and policies, or to schedule a visit.
