Re: Warm weather and eating.

Yep. Normally both Sox and Tiger would eat till they popped if given the chance, so every now and then I throw a chick in with their food to give them bones to crunch. Last night Tiger was quite happily chewing on his chick after eating his food but Sox just pawed at his and left it. So Tiger ended ...

Re: Best Way To Discipline?

What you want, if you can get there, is for you to be able to spot him about to transgress and a firm 'NO' to stop him doing it .... whatever it is! Good luck. :D That's easier said than done a lot of the time :lol: He fails to give warning most of the time, very occasionally we can catch him and t...

I'm afraid you'll have to watch him like a hawk, or even shut him out of the room if he tries.
I thought it might have to come to that. Well, if that's what it takes then that's what will have to happen.

Re: Best Way To Discipline?

We have so many ex-strays that are master cat burglars (yes Daz, I mean you!)that we've had to enforce firm rules. In his first year Daz ate the meat off our pepperoni pizza, stole several sausages from neighbours' barbeques (and one out of the frying pan when OH turned his back), broke into the ca...

Best Way To Discipline?

So I've hit a speed bump in the discipline form... Tiger can be quite the naughty cat when he chooses to, the problem is some of his naughty behaviour is stuff that needs to be stopped immediately or, in his mind, he gets away with it. For example- Stealing food off plates. Only the other night me a...

Re: Cat cleans paws in water

Sounds more like he's drinking the water off his paws :) My boys do it with running taps, dip their paw under and then lick the water off.

Vomit everywhere(seen by vet for this, now sorted). 2. Pee over the edge of the litter tray and on the floor, where it ...

I seem to have a cat with a slight predisposition to feline acne... I'm assuming this is entirely possible and it's something I'll just have to deal with? Tiger has had feline acne twice in the past year, which might not seem like much but compared to my other cat Sox who has never had it- It's a lo...
