Cats are known for being typically independent creatures, but they still need some TLC from their owners. At Gresham Animal Hospital we care about all of your cats little quirks, and want to make sure they continue being the individuals they are for many years to come. Continue below to read a tip for keeping your cat happy, healthy and lively.
10. Provide your cat with some basic training to help him get along in your home. It’s true that cats usually have their own ideas about how to do things. Even so, most cats can be taught not to scratch the couch, eat plants, or jump up on the kitchen counter. With repeated, gentle and consistent training, your cat will learn the house rules. Don’t yell or hit him.
Use a squirt gun, whistle, or other noisemaking device to startle (not scare) your cat if you catch him doing something you don’t like. Remember to provide a suitable alternative to meet his needs, for example a scratching post, cat grass, and a kitty condo.
