Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

This behavior stems from some fears that Nessa has that you may not even be aware of. This will take some work to get Nessa pst this by "Desensitization" which means you expose Nessa to al of these things that she fears until she understands that these will not harm her. It wil help to use a DAP Collar available at the pet store. This acts as a calming agent that will help Nessa past this. Also, have Nessa examined by your vet to be sure this is not a medical condition. If this is ruled out, your vet has medication that can help Nessa past this.
