Aggressive Cat Behaviour

In case you are at the moment experiencing aggressive cat behaviour then I believe I may also help you out. I’ve a couple of cats and someday out of nowhere they began getting increasingly more aggressive and showing aggressive cat behaviour.

In case you are at the moment experiencing aggressive cat behaviour then I believe I may also help you out. I’ve a couple of cats and someday out of nowhere they began getting increasingly more aggressive and showing aggressive cat behaviour.

Get It Sorted Rapidly – The thing is with aggressive cat behaviour is that there is clearly a problem someplace in the house that the cats should not completely satisfied with. It’s a must to type this as rapidly as doable or it’ll simply give you more annoyance further down the road. When you get it sorted now I promise you will thank your self for it 100 times over.

What To Do? – Cats are very territorial animals and like a secure setting where everything remains the same. Suppose to yourself what has changed in the house recently? What could possibly be contributing to the stress? I discover issues like transferring furnishings round an excessive amount of or an irritating surroundings can truly rub off on the cats. Have you ever modified their meals? Has a youthful relative been intimidating the cats? Strive returning these things to regular and checking back in a few weeks to see if something has changed.

Ache And Pleasure – On the flip side you additionally wish to let your cats know that this aggressive behaviour is unacceptable. What you should do is use the carrot and stick or what is extra generally referred to as the pain and pleasure principle.

In case your cats exhibits dangerous and aggressive behaviour you could punish the cat. Do one thing like squirt it with water or bang some pots close to the cats in order that they get a shock. What is admittedly essential right here is that you just guantee that the cats are actually not seeing you do it or they will nonetheless be aggressive, simply not if you end up there.

On the pleasure side of things you must reward not aggressive behaviour. If the cats behave effectively then reward then with a treat, a sit on your knee for a stroke etc. Or maybe even a new toy. Every cat is different. Simply ensure you reward them right away after good behaviour or after a day of good behaviour.

When you sustain this routine your cat will study in its mind that aggressive behaviour will not give it what it wants. Give it a try. What is the worse that could happen?

If you are at the moment experiencing unusual cat behaviour then I think I’d have the option that can assist you out. A while back now my cats just started appearing all nervous and fidgety and I puzzled why. I needed to find out because it was unfair on them if it was something I had been doing. Listed here are some of my top recommendations on strange cat behaviour.

Has Anything Changed? – Do you suppose that something major and even small has modified to the cat lately by way of the territory by which it lives. Animals like cats are very territorial and love a constant and stable environment. Perhaps you’ve moved their basket or changed their feeding time or moved furniture. All of these things can unnerve a cat and make them change behaviour, they’re very sensitive. Try transferring every little thing again to its authentic place and see if something adjustments in 2 weeks.

Stress In The House – You must be completely trustworthy with your self here. Have things bee tense across the dwelling lately? Cats can decide up on a people stress and they are practically all the time watching you if they don’t seem to be sleeping. Perhaps something needs to be carried out in that area. I do not mean to patronize you as a result of I know nothing about your life but it has been proven to be a problem.

Just Wild? – There is a high chance that the animals are just being their wild pure selves. Which means that they are just going to should be educated by pain and pleasure ti give the behaviours you need if they’ll stay in your house.

For example. You’d use the pain part to scare or shock the cats in the event that they act unhealthy like biting scratching. I shock them by banging some pots near their head or in any other case making a loud noise and spraying water onto them with a bottle I have nearby. It really works a charm they usually cease after a while but you need to bear in mind the opposite side of the equation.

It’s a must to use pleasure along with your cats. What do they absolutely love greater than most? Maybe it’s a new toy or simply one thing as simple as a stroke? Bond with your cats within the coming weeks. For those who make time to stroke them for 30 minutes each day they are going to behave so much better for you. Perhaps 30 minutes is an excessive amount of for you however it’s definitely worth the furnishings being saved from scratches and fixed meowing.

Here is what I came upon and my top suggestions for aggressive cat behaviour.

I currently have 7 cats but Noodle is the oldest and wisest. He is almost 10 years old, has had a very tough life and only has one eye. He is still the “king” in the house and controls all the others (including Mom and Dad!) with his gentle but firm demands. As you can see he loves his comfort.

Alarm Clock Kitty, How to Stop Early Morning Meowing

| July 15, 2018
Grudgingly, I drag myself out of my warm bed and look at the clock; 3:47 am. I reach over to the night-stand and turn on the light, pain is the result, the light, so bright, the light is, so, so bright. My wife rolls over on her side and I can see the annoyed look on her scrunched up little face

Grudgingly, I drag myself out of my warm bed and look at the clock; 3:47 am. I reach over to the night-stand and turn on the light, pain is the result, the light, so bright, the light is, so, so bright. My wife rolls over on her side and I can see the annoyed look on her scrunched up little face

Meow! Meow! Meow! I bury my head underneath my pillow. Meow! Meow! Meoooooow! The high pitched meowing persists and penetrates through my feather stuffed shield. Meow! Meow! Meow! My eyes open only with the greatest of efforts. Grudgingly, I drag myself out of my warm bed and look at the clock; 3:47 am. I reach over to the night-stand and turn on the light, pain is the result, the light, so bright, the light is, so, so bright. My wife rolls over on her side and I can see the annoyed look on her scrunched up little face. “Must…. feed…. demon… cat….” I say to myself as I trudge to the kitchen to empty a can of cat food into the little yellow cat dish. The cat has by this time woken up the entire household and I wouldn’t be surprised if the neighbors were also awake.

Our cat is a loud cat. Unnervingly loud. 747 jet-engine loud. And there was a time that she woke up every morning before even the sun had the nerve to peek over the horizon. Our loveable little ball of fur wanted to be fed. While the rest of the household was fast asleep our sweet little kitty wanted to have some food to suck down her gullet. This caused quite a bit of frustration for us, especially since this was not a one time thing. No, this was indeed becoming her morning ritual. Every morning, our cat would sit in front of our door and meow at the top of her little kitty lungs the most blood curdling meows I had ever had the displeasure of hearing. Our initial reaction, after caving in and feeding her several nights/early mornings in a row, was to put her in the laundry room before my wife and I went to sleep at night. This, however, was not the best solution in the world, our cuddly little black mass didn’t seem to like it very much and after a while she wasn’t the warm and cuddly cat we knew before.

There must to be another solution to this dilemma. Fortunately, there is. What your cat is, is what has been termed as an “alarm clock kitty”, what that is, is a cat that wakes up very early (or stays up very late) and begins to meow at approximately the same time every single, bloody day in expectation of being fed. Unfortunately for those of us who enjoy sleeping at night this is a natural behavior in cats and while the problem may not happen to every cat owner it happens to many. So what can you do? Even though cats have been domesticated animals for thousands of years now dating back to ancient Egypt, they still have retained most of their wild instincts and this is a cat’s natural instinct; hunt and feed. Cats are predatory animals, they hunt, and the cat’s natural time to hunt generally falls between dusk and dawn because most of the prey they hunt are nocturnal (rats, mice and other rodents). So, if you can’t or don’t want to let your cat out at night to hunt on her own what should you do?

Training your cat to stop this behaviour may be fairly easy, but be warned, it will take a little patience on your part but a good night’s sleep may be the reward. What you need is a cat toy, preferably a mouse or something similar, a piece of string and a stick. Attach the cat toy to a string and the string to the stick. While you are watching your bedtime TV or doing whatever your before bedtime ritual is take your cat toy and play a hunting game with her. Cats love to chase things because of their hunting instinct. Play with your cat for about 15 minutes, enough time to tire your cat out and give her the satisfaction of having hunted. During your game create as realistic a hunting scenario as you can, make noises like a mouse (or whatever animal you are emulating) squeaking or scurrying through the brush. Let your cat catch the toy from time to time so that your cat will feel as if she was involved in a successful (rather than a frustrating) hunt. Towards the end gradually slow down the game drawing your little hunt to a close. Your cat will probably be sufficiently tired by this time. At the end of the game feed your cat something you know she likes. You don’t need to feed her a full sized meal, but feed her an amount sufficient enough to satisfy her hunger. A handful of cat treats or a little piece of left over pork chop may be sufficient. Then go to sleep. In all likelihood your cat will be satisfied and will not continue her ritual of waking you up every morning.

You may need to continue your hunting game with your cat for a week or two before the early morning meowing goes away, and even after it does its a good idea to play this game with your cat from time to time in order to keep the behavior from returning and to keep your cat feeling like an accomplished hunter. But if you follow this routine you should be able to satisfy your cat and get a little shut eye at the same time.

Alexi, a four year old male Russian Blue. And how he is surviving Lymphosarcoma

| January 27, 2012

Two years ago my female British Blue, Kat, was also diagnosed with Lymphosarcoma but was put to sleep the very next day. She was 12 years old. She was my angel.

I started looking for another cat because I love them so very much. I knew I wanted a similar cat like Kat. The closests breed to the British Blue is the Russian Blue.

The only breeder I could find was in Amanzimtoti, KwaZulu-Natal, SilverSheen Cattery owned by Carol and Roy Wood. My only problem was the amount, so I said I would probably get one at a later stage.

However, a few months later Carol contacted my regarding a kitten that was bought and the owner was moving overseas and was looking for a new home. My husband and I jumped at the chance of adopting a kitten. We went a few days later to go and fetch him, Alexi.

When we got him he was living on a small balcony with no roof, he was underweight and scared. We took him immediately and I stayed with him in the house for a week to make him  comfortable with our two female dogs, Celeste, a Spaniel, and Krummel, a Jack Russel and the new environment.

It was tough work, for sure! But we got it right and he soon began to go outside to pee etc. It was a huge obstacle we overcame and we were so glad we got him. He is such a joy and even the Jack Russel gives him kisses all the time.

Beginning of this year I noticed that Alexi wasn’t feeling well. And so we took him to the vet. On April 30th we received the news that he has cancer, Lymphosarcoma, to be precise. I was devastated. The vet told me that Alexi had less the three months, if he was lucky.

On November 30th, was eight months and he is going strong! We have a wonderful vet and he prescribed that Alexi use Prednisone. Of course God is so very good for Alexi aswell, he is being blessed with health and I am so very grateful for all the help and love Alexi is getting. I am just amazed at his recovery, slowly but surely he is getting better!

Alexi is a fighter, he is just amazing and he is my angel from above. It is just so wonderful how he is living life as usual and going as if nothing is wrong.

All About Cats

All About Cats

Cats are the members of the Felidae family of canivorous mammals. Lion, tiger, leopard, jaguar, African wild cat are the members of the cat family. Their closest relatives are civets, hyenas and mongooses. However, what we generally recognize as cat is the domestic or the house cat.

Cats are the members of the Felidae family of canivorous mammals. Lion, tiger, leopard, jaguar, African wild cat are the members of the cat family. Their closest relatives are civets, hyenas and mongooses. However, what we generally recognize as cat is the domestic or the house cat.

The association between cats and humans dates back to between 7000 to 4000 years ago. From being dragged into satanic ritual beliefs, Halloween and unlucky black cat tags to being cute, caring and loyal companions, cats have seen it all. Cats have also been associated with bad omens, death and witchcraft. On the other hand there have been cultures like Vikings who worshipped the Goddess Freya, the goddess of fertility, who was closely associated to cats.

Cat appears in the Vietnamese and Chinese Zodiac systems. They are highly respected in Islam since it is believed that Prophet Mohammed approved domestication of cat. Feeding a cat is regarded as a great deed in Islam. Ancient Egyptians hailed cats as embodiment of their Goddess Bast. In many of the pyramids, mummified cats were found in the thousands. This signifies the importance of cat for the ancient Egyptians.

Today, there are dozens of breeds of cat that are domesticated. As for your cat vocabulary, a group of cat is clowder, male cat is tom, female cat is queen and the cute little baby cat is called kitten.

An average cat weighs between 2.5 to 7 kgs. And live for 15 to 20 years. However, you can ensure a longer life for your pet cat by getting it spayed or neutered and getting all the necessary vaccinations done.

Cats are extremely intelligent. They communicate effectively through purring, hissing and gestures. Thanks to the 32 muscles in their ear, they have a sharp sense of hearing. Cats can conserve their energy by sleeping for long durations. Cats mostly land on their feet. They have a very good sense of balance and have great flexibility. They use their tail to regulate the angular momentum during their flight in a fall. They walk on their toes. They can also manipulate their walk in such a way that they make minimum sound and leave negligible tracks.

Cats have very superior eyesight and senses which are matched by no other animal. They have very good nocturnal eyesight. They have a field of view of 200 degrees. Their whiskers assist them in navigation. Surprisingly cats cannot taste sugary food because they have faulty sweet receptors.

Cats are fussy eaters. They are known to eat grass, leaves, shrubs and houseplants but they’ll eat only the specific food which they get used to. Whatever they are, they are some of the most popular pet around the world. So much so that they outnumber dogs as pets in USA.
