Solve Your Cat Behavior Problems

in Cat

Despite all of the common perception, cats are not totally self-sufficient creatures. They still need you to feed them, protect them, and love them. Also, despite all of their protests against it, cats need you to train them. If not properly trained you will be fighting with some annoying cat behavior problems. Adopting a cat can be a very rewarding feeling, as well as a major challenge at times. Training your cat can ensure that you have a gentle, loving pet that does not eat your furniture or hands and use your plants as a bathroom. Training not only protects your belongings, but also protects your cat from potential dangers.

Cats develop behavior problems for different reasons. They may be bored, sick, transitioning, or they may view it as play because of past mistakes made by their owner. For starters you never want to teach your cat that your hand is a toy. Kittens will need to chew on things for the same reasons that puppies and human babies do- they are exploring their world, as well as teething. What you need to do is to make sure to provide them with other things to put their mouths around and reward them for doing it correctly. If your cat is older and has just started chewing, you might need to examine what might have changed in his live. Did you just move? Is the cat bored?

A poorly trained cat is a ticking time bomb. If you let them begin slipping and developing their cat behavior problems, they will only get worse. First it will start with something simple like biting or scratching. Then they will use the whole house as a litter box. Now, while this may not be true 100% of the time, you need to make sure you have properly taught your cat.

A happy and healthy cat free of behavior problems will be fun and amusing to yourself and to your guests. You and your cat will both live happier stress free lives. Calmer cats also tend to be more affectionate. So be sure to start correcting your cat behavior problems today.
