Sudden strange behavior

My male 1year old cat named jack, who is neutered has all of a sudden trying to run outside. He has never been outside.He is also growling and his best friend our other cat Molly. Now is is being VERY verbal and kind of scaring us.What could possibly be causing this behavior in what is usually a very loving sweet cat??? Please help.

Is there a new stray cat in the neighborhood?  Your cat may be trying to exert his territorial rights if a new animal is spraying.  Just because your cat has been neutered he is still able to smell the hormones of intact cats outside.  

Try purchasing Feliway Infusers, and placing them is some outlets in your cat's favorite rooms.  Feliway is a cat pheromone that gives cats a feeling of well being.

If Feliway is not effective, you could try giving your cat Bach's Rescue Remedy.  This homeopathic remedy has a calming effect.

If both of these are ineffective, it may be a good idea to bring him to your vet for an exam and to discuss the problem.  Some physical problems can have behavioral effects.
