Hello Everybody!

Have a cat who won't stay off your dining table no matter how many times you take her off? How about playing trial and error with different cat litters to the point where it's just getting too expensive because you're throwing a lot of it out? As pet owners, we all try different methods to stimulate good behavior in our pets, but sometimes it just doesn't work.

Personally, if what I try doesn't seem to work, I'll either research the behavior online or I've been asking my lovely forum friends Rose (Roseytoesrose) and Crystal (daisy mae).

I wanted to create this thread so that we could share with each other our experiences that has proved to be effective and help each other out with their, you guessed it - cattitudes 😉

Any other cat related questions that are not related to their personalities are welcome too!

Renegade does that as well! 🙁

Clare Hemington might be good for some advice on this. 🙂 

i'll drop her a message to see if she has time to put a post together on this.

Sounds good. Thanks, Marc! 🙂

BTW, also received The Trainable Cat book this past weekend. Looking forward to reading/deciphering the book to see if there are any pointers from the book too 🙂

Your cats are still little kittens-right? Daisy Mae is 11 now and when she was a kitten Anita, she liked jumping up on the tables, counter tops, top of the doors and etc... She loved to explore. I'm only guessing but through my experience, once your kitten turns into an adult cat it won't be as bad. I also think to that once you either have them spayed or neutered will slow them down and they won't jump up things as much as when they were kittens. Do you feed your kittens cat grass? We used to and we put between the food and water dish. Litter box was in the powder room not to far away. Good luck my friend.

Hope you find some pointers from the book. I may be asking you and Rose to give me pointers on some things like how to get your to be more active? Daisy Mae must be a morning because she's active in the morning but sleeps the rest of the day. Hope my advice in the previous post helped you.

Hi Crystal,

Always appreciate any advice given 🙂 My girls just turned 1 on August 26th, and I believe at 1 year old, it makes them adults (I could be wrong). They were spayed when they were 5 months old, so that shouldn't be it. I did toss their cat tree and haven't had a chance to replace it yet because it's expensive, but it had so many fleas on it, so I don't know if they jump up on table tops because they miss the height of their cat tree. They do this a lot when they're chasing each other around, as Rose likes to call it the "zoomies". Not sure how to reinforce this type of behavior, but I'm excited to read the book to find out!

This past weekend was my last weekend at my 3rd job doing pet food demos for Wellness. Now, being back to 2 jobs, should free up some time for me to start reading and writing again. I'll definitely look into the book to see what can help encourage activity throughout the day for older cats. Will keep you posted!! Lastly, Marc has posted up a last giveaway ending 10.31.17 for the last round of books for The Trainable Cat. Be sure to enter, and good luck! 🙂
