    Meows ALL the time

    Install a cat door? My guy meows when he gets bored & he LOVES to sing in my bathroom (good acoustics?) I don’t know why. Ignoring him didn’t help. Talking to him/answering him gets him to be quiet in a few meows.

    Cat is starting to try to eat off my plate

    My mom had a bottle baby that was crazy spoiled. She ‘suppervised’ On the counter while my mom was cooking & tried to steal bacon out of the pan! So I agree about nipping it in the Bud early. Since my past cats got people food on their plates & they were well behaved I will try that (plus...

    Cat is starting to try to eat off my plate

    I admit, I do give him a nibble or two of my food if he is interested but never off my plate. When he is interested he gets on my lap and starts sniffing the food like crazy. He is a spoiled bottle baby. With my previous cats I was a ‘mean mommy’ & only gave them people food on a plate away from...

    Anxious and worried about my cat after sibling cat died.

    Walnut is young & at a good age to introduce a new kitty. Plus a baby kitten is less threatening. I hear you about loosing them to soon. Dante was just 13 years old & I considered him to be middle age. No matter if it is a month, 5 years or 20 years they leave to soon because they left ahead of...

    Anxious and worried about my cat after sibling cat died.

    First let me tell you how deeply sorry I am that you have kissed Cashew! Well my advice may be weird but I hope it works! I suggest you tell Walnut all about loosing his brother & how much you miss his brother ...... while petting Walnut. I think cats understand the general idea of what we are...

    Tips and Tricks for Managing High Prey Drive

    Rotating interactive toys, puzzle feeders & hiding treats or toy around the place. I think a bird watching window with a bed or cat tree by the window so they can look out (open the window during warm weather days.) Journey can still watch the birds. The heat is a pain. It is 90F here today...

    Tips and Tricks for Managing High Prey Drive

    If you can I would do one of those window cations or securely install a cat proof screen in one window (or better yet pay a professional to instal one.) Then you can let them see/smell outside through the window, hangs couple of bird feeders & bird bath in view of the window. That way Journey...

    Tips and Tricks for Managing High Prey Drive

    I had this problem! Whenever Dante (R.I.P.) got bored he would jump on my other cat & bite him right between his shoulder blades! The only thing that calmed my hyper punk down was outside time ‘hunting’ birds. When Dante didn’t get his outside time he would start hunting his brother 🙄 With my...

    Jackie hates the other neighborhood cat but loves the cats at my mom’s house

    Jackie is outside atm & I’m inside watching him. Because I’m right there (& constantly untangling his 26 foot leash) he can run inside whenever he wants. Plus I’m there going outside whenever someone comes by. When I take him on walks if he gets scared I let go of his leash & let him run back...

    Jackie hates the other neighborhood cat but loves the cats at my mom’s house

    If I’m being honest I don’t like the kitty being tied up either. The cat is in the common ‘front yard’ of my apartment building. The kitty’s tied up spot is far away enough from the curb that she can not get within 5 feet of the curb. So if people walk their dog in the ally then the cat is safe...

    Loves people, indifferent to cats.

    I wouldn’t sweat it & would be over joyed they like each other /tolerate each other so well already!!! My advice? Keep up the slow introductions and enlist someone else to help. That way you can engage both kitties in play without fighting over toys (I had a toy hog.) I thought Salem hated...

    Jackie hates the other neighborhood cat but loves the cats at my mom’s house

    So I’m becoming friends with one of the ladies in my apartment complex (she is a cat lover/owner to.) About a week ago I saw a cat outside my sliding hlSs door screen, about 5 feet from my door that Jackie was all riled up about/growling. I had to put him in the bedroom to be able to go outside...

    How to train a Bengal?

    I never owned a bengal but I have trained a few cats. I recommend clicker training but I just say the same praise all high pitched as I give him his food or treats to reward him “oh you are such a good boy!” I used to just say “good boy/girl” and I noticed my cat Jackie responded to me sucking...

    Son And Mother Are Strangers!

    Seniors cats like things as are & resist change. So #1 are you sure it is worth the effort & stress to get these two senior kitties to interact? My senior cat Salem (15 years old) moved to my apartment and hid in terror for a couple of days. So I sent him back to my mom’s house where he felt...
