  1. Behavior
    My cat is a 2 year old, very well trained to use the litter box and bury her waste. But for the past week she's been missing her aim at night while she's in her cage. Half her poop would be out or dripping by the box's side. We thought it was the cage issue so we decided to allow her to roam...
  2. Behavior
    So I recently brought home a new kitten (2 months old, male) and my kitten named Mickey (6 months old, male) keep hissing and growling at the new kitten to a point where he wants to hit the new kitten with his claws. Luckily the new kitten was in his cage during that time so no one was hurt...
  3. Behavior
    After my cat has pooped he always goes to the kitchen and scratches the plastic mat that his food bowl is on. He only scratches there and only after he poops, not after he pees. The litter box is in the bathroom nowhere near the kitchen where his food/the mat is, but without fail, after pooping...

    My cat, bella, has lived in my room with me for as long as I remember. I just remember I wanted a cat of my own, so my mother let this one that she adopted be mine. Every morning and night I let her go to the kitty litter in the bathroom, and I bring her dry food and water to my room, and refill...

    Hello everyone, I recently got a new kitten. She is my first pet ever. She is about 2 months old. She has a habit of climbing on my lap. But when she decides to go, she jumps and may sometimes loose balance. This has caused numerous scratches on me as she tries to latch to me trying to keep...

    Hello! I'm in need of some advice. My other grandparents (not the ones who already have a cat) are thinking of getting a cat for mice control. They have an outdoor neutered male dog. He's territorial, so I don't know how he'd react to having a cat in his yard. He/she would be outside, so will he...

    I'm looking for some advice on one my cats. She was born on our property, and been with me all of her life, (which is like 17 months.) But for some reason she doesn't like me. She is very unaffectionate. If I try to pet her, she just run off. I thought it was just her personality, but now I'm...

    I have a fair amount of behavioral knowledge with dogs, but this makes no sense to me. Environment: 2 bonded spayed/ neutered cats 10 years old each, male and female they were once feral. They both reside mainly in our dining room and basement, gated off, cat door to the basement. Cat stands...

    So I had a huge surprise tonight. My 6 year old, male tabby named Hunter, who has always been aloof and a bit skittish has been getting friendlier lately but just with me. He is affectionate only when he is at the top of his cat stand or if I'm lying on the floor. I've cried around him before...
  10. Health and Nutrition
    Hello, I'm new on this forum because I'm seeking answers about my cat. I just adopted her, she's 2 years old and very small, weighing only about four pounds. She eats just fine, I have her on a mixed wet and dry food diet just like at the shelter. BUT, she poops VERY OFTEN and when she does...

    Hi, I was hoping to receive some advice or explanation to my cats behaviour. My lovely boy (Simba) is just over a year old, very active, charming, loving and happy. He is an outdoor cat as I have a cat flap but he doesn’t tend to go out much when I’m home. Every evening he follows me up to bed...

    Two kittens, black one is 15 weeks, white one is 16 weeks. After getting used to each other, they love each other. They always sleep together, cuddling, as well as playing together. They've always played with each other, at first they were too aggressive and couldn't control themselves, though...

    Got a kitten
  14. Behavior
    Hello! I adopted my first ever cat about two weeks ago! She is spayed & ~8 year-old Siamese mix and EVERY single day she urinates and defecates on my bed. I have looked up and tried every thing from Google and my vets recommendation and nothing is working. I tried changing her litter and litter...
  15. Behavior
    Hi, Months before I had rescued the motherless kittens Goku and Sumi (both in June), there were already two grown up cats who were visiting us from time to time for a treat- a male and a female. Mind you, they are stray and feral, and do not like to be petted. They eat and run! Ever since I...

    Hello everyone. I just got a kitten (female) of the same breed as my older kitten (make), same age but they won't tolerate each other. The female kitten (new one) specifically is the aggressive cat, not only towards the male but also towards us, unlike the male kitten when we got him. Any...
  17. Behavior
    I don't even know where to start. I am starting to think a guest in my home over Christmas pychologically abused my beloved calico. She won't come near me and she's normally glued to me. She won't cuddle with me. She isn't playing and she normally races around the house. She doesn't respond...

    So this is kind of weird, but I'm having an issue with my kitten sucking on his own private parts when he is held. He is about 4 months old and when ever I hold him or pick him up, he instantly wants to suck his "area". He only does it if he's being held, never in any other instances. He will do...
