Cats, like children, have to be harness trained with persistence and concern. Hard treatment and physical stress can only induce fear in cats. Starting at age six months, a cat can start to undergo the training. Confine the cat in order to diminish its need to wander. It is very vital that the right harness is purchased and used since a cat can easily struggle and free itself from the leash if a puny one is used. The harness should be of sturdy yet of comfortable quality, one that is specially made for cats.
The H shaped harness made of nylon material which is light, although it has buckles for the neck and the cat's tummy, is a sure buy. Make sure that there is a metal ring for the cat's I.D., which is located near the backside of the cat. The cat size can be measured by using a tape measure for the neck and tummy.
Have you ever had this happen? You’re a happy cat owner, your kitty is using the box just fine, but one day…you come home and find a giant urine spot in the living room…the bathroom…heaven forbid – on your bed! What happened? What went wrong? It isn’t normal for a cat to use her litter box faithfully, then one day decide it’s no longer right for her. There’s always a reason why a cat stops using the litter box.
You don't often hear about or see information for special needs kitties. These may be blind, very old (with limited mobility), or disabled in some way. Disabled cats may be amputees, or even paralyzed. There are special mobile devices you can purchase for your paralyzed cat.
In statistics, cat spraying urine constitutes from 44% to nearly 100% in multi-cat households with over ten cats. It is quite normal behavior for the cat but we can reduce the problem. Many cats will reject a litter box placed in a busy area of your home, people walking by all the time and making too much noise. Some cats like a little privacy if they are going to use the box and not give you cat urine problems. Most cats will not use a box that is located too close to their food and water, this is understandable.
