How Feliway helped Mewsli to stop cat scratching and hiding
So, mewsli is my little baby.He’s a bit of a character.He’s got the softest fur.He’s really, really cute.He’s a rescue cat so i had an immediate kind of connection with him and i was like i’ve got to take him home.I do get the feeling because of his demeanour that maybe he didn’t have the best of upbringings unfortunately.He was very scared, he was very anxious, he would hide.He was scratching the side of the chair so he ruined part of the chair, which wasn’t great and, obviously, my husband.
Probably wasn’t very happy about that either bringing in the new cat.Since we first got him we’ve had to build up that trust.We did use feliway.I kind of read that it helps relax nervous cats and cats in new environments.The feliway plugin was really easy to use, actually.Just plug it in the wall and let it go and you forget about it.And i use the spray on certain areas for instance on the sofa where i know he goes.After a little time i noticed.
Youre Petting Your Cat All Wrong
We are here to talk about why your cat beats you up.Now, let’s go get catified.Today, we are in the land of the supermarket question.The supermarket question is, jackson, i got this cat, he’s really, really cool.And every time we’re sitting together, out of the blue, randomly he attacks me.Of course, its never out of the blue.It’s always because of something.And secondly, yes, you may have bites and scratches on you, but is that an attack most times, when folks are sitting here just like me and him, we’re just sitting around,.
We’re not doing much of anything good pc, good pc, oh i love pc.Look at this, look at this.Bye, pc.See you, pc.Right and gone.Why is that pettinginduced overstimulation aggression.And what happens there is that certain cats and this is physiological, this is not a matter of temperament cannot take being pet like this over and over the over again.It actually fills them with a sort of static, like a balloon, filled, filled, and then bang.You don’t realize when you’re sitting watching tv with your cat how you’re petting them.
So what is the cure for this all right, let’s look at number one.Be observant.Know when your cat is getting worked up.As you’re petting, you’re going to notice the tail start to twitch just a little.And then that graduates, and then starts going like this.And then, you are going to get bit.Then there is what i call back electricity.Right down the back.It’s a cat going eew, ughh in terms of stimulation, they’re just getting to that point.It’s up to you to notice these things.
And if you notice that, the aggression is not going to happen.Know where your cat enjoys being pet and for how long.I’m going to demonstrate with veloria the opposite of the full body pet.Veloria, here, 23 years old of fun.So now watch, out comes the finger.You see how she guides me here with the finger look at that, see how she guides me this is a technique i wish i had a better name for it.Right now i call it the finger nose.
I present my finger like a nose to the cat.The idea is to let them pet you.Overstimulation happens constantly with cats because they are this direct channel for energy.Proactivity is key, folks.You’ve got to play with your cats.You’ve got to get that energy out on a regular basis so then when they’re sitting on your lap, that balloon is not filled to 90.So all it takes is five pets and kaboom.They blow.Again, remember, you are in control of putting air into the cat balloon.
Let that air out as the day goes on.Don’t keep putting air into it, and don’t be surprised when the balloon pops.From now on, when it does happen to you i know this is really hard pull yourself emotionally out of that moment and say, what just happened here.When you understand that part of things, you’re going to stop blaming the cat for doing things to you.All right, folks, you can find me pretty much anywhere.If you want to find me, teamcatmojo, mycatfromhell, teamanimojo, you’ll see a lot of these hashtags.
Just hashtag.You know, i’m still looking for more cats and dogs watching my cat from hell, so if you just catswatchingmcfh, dogswatchingmcfh, we’ll all have a lot of fun doing that.And also, send me in examples of what you’ve done to your house to environmentally enrich that place.Catification, and be on the lookout for that book catification with my coauthor kate benjamin, coming out in october.Couldn’t be more psyched for that one.All right folks, until next time, all light, all love, and all mojo to ya.
Why do cats spray 4 reasons
Hi, andy here from healthy pet systems.Today i will tell you why do cats spray some of the reasons are 1.Cats spray to mark their territory.Just like our finger prints and irises distinguish us one from another, for cats it is the odor of their urine.2.They do not only mark their own territory, but it is also used to attract mates.Hence like humans use tinder to look for mates, cats use scents to look for other cats in order to mate.3.Your kitty may also sprinkle due to stress.If the cat is not able to rest properly, or.
You just changed its diet, or it’s just not getting enough play time these are also reasons for stress spraying.4.The cat may also spray more often if there is more than one cat in a particular area or home.To find out more, i created a great guide about cats spray.In it you will find why do cats spray, do female cats spray and how to stop a cat from spraying.Link is down below in description.If you liked this tutorial, hit the subscribe button to receive more like it in the future.
How to help cats get along
Can feliway help my cats get along domestic cats retain the natural behaviour trait of their ancestors to hunt and maintain a territory on their own.Territory is very very important and having to share this with other cats can be difficult for them in the wild groups of cats can live together these usually related females and their offspring the size of the group depends on the amount food as well as other resources such as water, sleeping areas and space available feliway can help a tension between cats.In a domestic environment with multicat households.
We need to look at how these resources spread throughout the home a cat needs to be able to access these without having to interact with other cats in the house.What are the resources a cat needs food and water the should be placed away from each other as no cat would instinctively drink where they eat or where they would be under threat from another cat toileting area.We all like have to have some privacy when we go to the loo and cats are no different.Thinking about where the litter boxes are located.What size they are.
And which cat litter is used can all impact on whether your cats want to use the litter box in the first place.Keep in mind that cats do not like to eat where they go to the toilet sleeping and hiding places cats love to be up higher on surfaces away from each other in a place where they feel safe enabling them to rest without being disturbed.Ensure there are enough comfortable places each cat can get to for example on top the cupboards or shelves where should all these things be placed in your home.
How to stop cats forever The extreme party popper by Craig Turner
I like to think i’ve had some pretty good ideas in my time, like forget drive through coffee shops, i invented drive by coffee.Skinny latte! and whatever spork.I beat the hell out of that when i created the cutting spoon.But the one idea i had that was probably most successful was my water spray cat deterrent, which quite successfully rid my yard of urine spraying cats.Well, at least i thought that was the case for a while.So there i was, working away on a new non cat related project for a youtube tutorial.
And then i noticed an all to familiar sight.And smell.Yep.Cat piss! yeah, like before, it’s in all the usual places around the outside of my house..Even in my house.So while my really super awesome cat get awayer thing worked well for months there, it’s not really practical to leave on all the time.But even once it was packed up the cats stayed away, probably because it was burnt into their memory like if you ever have walked.In on your parents.Mum, where’s my aladdin dvd.
There were a lot of good alternative ideas suggested by you all but no.I am not going to replace the hose with a gun for obvious reasons.And for the minority of people out their who said err that’s urine from a dog, did you not understand my surveillance footage it’s not a dog because one there is a big fence, and two this is a cat.Even if they are upside down i can still tell because i have this ability to see.So there are still a couple of cats returning to my yard, so i figured i needed to.
Revisit this whole cat deterrent concept.What i need to do is increase the fear element of the device, so it’s etched so deeply into their memory they never return.In researching pest control measures, i discover that some farmers and even airports have been known to use pyrotechnics to scare birds and other pests away.No, i’m not going to use explosives.Although that is a good idea, but you can’t easily buy anything fun like that in western australia.Here you’re not even allowed to use a toaster unless you are a licensed electrician.
While looking through a draw i found something which prompted an idea.In keeping things humane and hopefully more effective here’s what you need to do.Start off by purchasing yourself some party poppers.You’ll also need an old pedestal fan.If you have a neighbour that has a bore for their garden reticulation, you’ll need to borrow their systems 240 volt relay.Find a power board.Grab a small plastic box that the relay will fit in.I found one in my houses meter box which was doing something electricity related.
Now cut the cord on your power board.Don’t cut a live one! use your tongue or a fork to check that its safe.Do not actually attempt this! wire the power board to run through your relay.You can find detailed wiring instructions on my hand.Now mount the relay in the box.Now you basically have a power board that can be switched on with.Say a battery.Or battery and motion sensor.Aaaah, you get it.Take the fan, dismantle and remove the front and back finger guards.
Then load that sucker up with as many party poppers you can fit.Daisy chain all of their strings together.I have then placed a steel disc in the middle for some extra rotating mass.You can then tie your string onto the drive shaft of the fan.Once your power board is connected to you alarm motion sensor you have yourself a motion activated explosive wheel of terror.So what do you think pretty scary, ha no! it’s lame and the string keeps breaking! so we need to make an extreme party popper of some kind.Here is how we do it!.
First, grab yourself a tyre valve from a bike or stroller, and a 1 inch thready thing like this from you kitchen drawer in mystical muffler forest i managed to find some really big tube and steel plate.70 000410,140 gt 000414,260 take some measurements, then type 5318008 into a calculator, turn it upside down and it should say boobies.Hehe boobies.Next we cut ourselves some circles from the steal plate.Then cut another 25mm hole.Weld the end plate circles on.Braze your 25mm thready thing and your stroller valve on.
Next, make a return visit to your neighbours bore, this time borrow their reticulation solenoid.In my shed i found my old colonic irrigation kit, which had a lot of useful parts including a pressure gauge.Drill and tap a hole for it in the top to screw it in.Yeah you would tap that.Grind it all clean and paint.Lastly get yourself some pvc pipe, blah blah blah.This tutorial is too long.Cut, glue and make this thing.The next day when everything is nice and dry you can put it all together.
Screw the solenoid back on.And then screw the tank assembly onto your pvc.It’s quite an ominous looking tank at this stage, so find a way to friendly it up a little.Hello, i’m thomas.Now we need to load our extreme party popper.If you have ever looked inside one, they have a bunch of rolled up streamers.I have loaded the cartridges with screwed up newspaper to serve as wadding, then placed in the streamers while doing this, i thought why not add some flour and pile of newspaper confetti.
So how is this all going to work using an air compressor we load thomas with a big chunk of air through the stroller tube valve.He will then serve as an accumulator tank waiting for the sprinkler valve to be activated.Once activated the air will release through the valve with some fairly explosive force out through our pvc party popper cartridges, releasing fun and fear to all that are near.Now, you already know my previous tutorials hose spray setup and how it was triggered.Except this time i have two cameras firing lots of frames, plus a night vision camera.
The low voltage activated switch from our earlier failed party popper fan we can use to activate some more potent lighting.I’ve also added a little more infrared lighting to make sure we capture sneaky cats.We’re ready to go, but like always you want to test your setup.So hide the cameras and cover your extreme party popper with a sheet.Who’s my favourite sister how’re you going cool.You still coming round for a swim it seems to work pretty well.The water spray gives that good initial scare and the air exploding around the target.
Accompanied with a earth shattering boom appears to really bring home the fear element.I especially like the point where she gets a little airborne too.So this rig should leave your target second guessing the prospect of ever returning to your house or.Even continuing any form of sibling relationship with you in the future.Now unroll your test subject from their fear induced fetal position, clear and reset the rig ready for the night and a visit from your favourite urine packing kittehz.Its night number 1 let’s check out our surveillance footage and see how we went.
Here he is, my old friend tabby toilet rug.Oh, he looks over and recognises that something is a little different what’s all dis den 129 000718,560gt 000720,860 and then, he retreats.Nar, cats aren’t that smart.All he is thinking is der der der deh.Runnin.Wees and runs right back in..Right in the face please! that’s always a good way to clean under those eye lids.And boom.The drone shakes the windows of the house, and that cat is out of there.Despite the cool, calm and collected expression on his face.
The water blast has seen him swell to 3 times his original size and no, he’s not sitting, he’s levitating.And no he isn’t sitting he is levitating.At this point he thinks he’s all clear, but a few hundredths of a second later kaboom! with claws firmly embedded into the concrete he gets the hell out of there leaving us with the old cat brown eye.Actually.Hang on a minute, in this next frame has he.Has he got cat wood see this cat repellent isn’t a cruel, it apparently turns them on.
We are all reset for night number two.Which cat is this he looks like fatty fatty two by four from my last tutorial, but he has black paws.It looks like we have a new player.Lets just call him fatty fatty black paw.Spreyed right in the face.And he leaves behind a massive trail of destruction.And looking at the photos, before the first frame even fires he has launched off the ground.Thomas the tank detonates and fatty fatty black paw has a moment of zero g.
That’s right fatty fatty black paw, i can has boom! then he returns to earth and kicks the back board and extreme party popper with all of his kitty power.And happy new year! a mushroom cloud of fun descends on the backyard, while hopefully his cat brain is registering that this is not a place to return to.As an added bonus while editing this tutorial i realised having two cameras allowed me to create a very rough 3d anaglyph image.Check it out with 3d glasses if you want a headache.
If you’re interested in researching how to create these for yourself, don’t accidentally mistype anaglyph like i did, as it turns out that analgif will yield a very different search result.Once again i reset the extreme party popper for night number 3.Aah, it looks like it is the early hours of the morning, and who has come to visit oh.This is kind of a bit awkward.Yep, the dove from my last tutorial has returned.Now, some of you asked why i didn’t name the dove like i named the cats.
I don’t know, what am i the animal naming guy! 160 000944,670 gt 000949,240 ok, ok.How about dovo von doveington and boom! dovo is vaporised into a fine avian mist.Not really.With some quick fighter pilot style evasive manoeuvres he was safely out of there.Man birds really know how to fly.So that was it.The cats didn’t come back.The extreme party popper seems to be a pretty good solution.Apart for the fact that it requires about 4 hours to reset each time.And that when it suddenly detonates in the middle of the night.
Everyone in the house and for a block radius would empty their bowels in bed, which generally proves to be a bigger clean up than just cat wee.But otherwise, it’s the ultimate solution to cat pee.Or you could just get a dog.Nar, they wee on everything too.But do remember it’s not the cats fault, don’t be cruel to them.If you’re going take it out on someone, take it out on the cat’s owner.No! naughty! no! no! no! no! no! no!.A huge thank you to you guys for being so patient with the release of this tutorial.
And for your support and comments.Join me again for my next tutorial in 2035, where i’ll be harassing cats with fire.Nar, no more cat content.Unless they come back.But there is a lot of very cool stuff already in the making.And i will be working towards releasing more frequent tutorials for you all.Maybe some simpler ones.And maybe some extremely complex ones.Jump on my facebook page for some behind the scenes info and pics.There is a link in the description box below, and don’t forget to subscribe.

Introducing Cats to New Homes Breaking Up a Cat Fight
Now sometimes in spite of all of your hard work with introducing a new cat into the household slowly and over time, there will still be a fight, so i wanted to give you some tips on how to safely breakup a fight between two cats.First thing is never stick your hands in the way of two cats that are fighting, because they will scratch or bite you if you get in the way.They can’t control themselves when they’re in the heat of the battle so to speak.So there’s a couple of techniques you can use, one is to have a spray bottle.
Handy, it just needs to be filled with water, and you want to have the spray kind of on a stream, and you would direct it right at the cats who are fighting and spray, like that.Most cats hate water, and that will distract them and interrupt them from their fight.Another thing you can do is, if they’re really tussling, get a broom, and use your broom to get in between them and swat one of them away.The broom has soft bristles so it won’t actually hurt the cats, but you can use it to intercept them, so that you.
