He hates everyone in my household except my dad. He pees on the rugs and carpets all the time. He has bitten or scratched everyone in my house except my dad. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS MEAN BUGGER?!?!?!?!?

How old is the mean lil booger? And how long have you had him? There are a lot of things that could make him act that way. So give us some more feed back.

ps you must be travelling a lot by train ...esp no#28, right ?

No no no. He doesn't have medical problems. We took him to the vet who said he needs animal psychiatry. He is 7 years old and he has been acting like this for the past 7 years. It is simply I just founf this forum a few hours ago. The vet said nothing was wrong and he has a litter box that he hardly ever uses.

Oh by the way, I ride trains to New York City and Harrisburg all the time. Not number 28 though. I ride number 48 to harrisburg. To New York City, there is no number, so I ride the northeast corridor. It is a New Jersey Transit train.

There is many things that could be causing your cat to do this, if your vet has said there is no physical reason for it, then here are your options, and this could be a long tough road (but not always).

1.) Find a qualified cat behaviorist to come out to your house and work with you guys and your cat.
2.) Talk to your vet about medications for this cat that can help modify his behavior, and in turn might also help his litterbox habits get back to normal.
3.) Keep him in a calm quiet area, that is warm, where he feels safe, has toys food/water, litterbox etc. Do not bug him, do not make it worse, spend time with him by sitting down on the floor semi near him and wait for him to make his moves. Let him come to you, don't go to him. [/list]

Angelzoo, I like your ideas. However, none of them will work.

1. A cat psychologist. The Vet suggested this, but my parents won't pay for it.

2. Tried it. Vet gave them to use, the cat just got sick.

3. doesn't like toys, he has warmth and carpet, we live in a wealthy area. Litterbox he has, however, he prefers to go outside. He avoids us also.

Though, I may annoy him a bit. Maybe I will give him some alone time.
