What if the pet has acquired inclinations that terrify the owners, and the house is plunged into chaos? In many cases, bad habits of cats can be corrected. This will help patience and love for a furry friend.
Probably the most annoying habit on this list. The cause may be stress, problems with the genitourinary system, an uncomfortable tray or filler. Do not yell at the cat and poke its muzzle at the crime scene. Owner aggression can exacerbate the situation, especially if the source of the problem is the pet’s anxiety. You can take your cat to the veterinarian, buy a more convenient tray, or change the litter to a smaller and looser one. The tray should be placed in a quiet place away from noise and people.
Tears furniture and wallpaper
Cats sharpen their claws to remove dead layers from them. Their wild ancestors used tree bark for this purpose, while domestic purrs prefer sofas, wall corners and other interior elements. To wean a cat from sharpening its claws on wallpaper, you can put a comfortable scratching post in each room. The furniture chosen by the favorite should be temporarily pasted over with double-sided tape – until she gets used to the new order. You can cut your cat’s claws twice a month.
Wakes up owner at night
Cats are by nature nocturnal animals, so they tend to doze off during the day, and after dark jump over sleeping people or beg for food. This habit can only be eradicated by consistency. You should not succumb to the nightly moaning of a supposedly hungry kitty, but you need to make sure that during the day she has food and drink in sufficient quantities. It is also important to devote time to nightly games with the cat: it should play enough and get tired.
Scratching and biting
Cats show their hunting instincts in the game. If you allow the kitten to bite and scratch your arms or legs during play, he will get used to seeing them as an object of hunting. Subsequently, an adult cat may regularly scratch and bite people if this behavior is not stopped. Therefore, it is worth directing his playful aggression to cat toys: balls, ropes and teasing sticks with feathers.
A little patience – and the cat will be corrected. It is important to give him a chance and be consistent in your decision.
