All right folks, i’ve been hassled about this forever. We’re going to talk about litter boxes. As cats are all little individual snowflakes, they all come from the same place, from that big cat cloud, right?.
And like any other cloud, a little bit of pee must fall, or dingleberries, or let’s get catified. All right, folks, we’re going to break this down in a very fast fashion because there’s a lot of information to cover in a very short amount of time.
Now here’s the first thing. If your cat is peeing or pooping outside the box, number one, go to the vet. Rule things out. Get a urinalysis done. Get a full blood panel done.
Make sure that your cat’s not acting out from a very simple physical place. You got to know. I’ve had cases in the past where a cat has actually been acting out this was in the shelter environment. The cat was within a day of being euthanized.
Because of this behavior problem. And a friend of mine who’s a fantastic vet had the presence of mind to check the cat’s mouth. And sure enough, that cat had an abscessed tooth. And that’s why the cat was acting out, not using a litter box.
And that abscessed tooth almost cost that cat her life. So let’s think about this. Again, rule number one, go to the vet. Now here’s the next really important chunk. You have to know the tools of the trade here. You’ve got to know what you’re going.
To need in order to solve the problem. You know I’ve talked to you about this before. It’s the power of journaling. This helps you in a number of different ways. You step away from the pee. You step away from the poop.
It’s not all about you and it’s not all about the fact that you’re angry because your cat peed. You’re looking for the whats, the wheres, the hows, the whens, the whys. Now if this wasn’t happening a week ago and now it’s starting to happen regularly,.
Why You Should Still Spay or Neuter Your Cat Dog
wild animal noises All right, folks. Today we’re going to answer a very, very important question. A question that I get more often than I probably should at this point, which is, Jackson, should I spay or neuter my animal companion?.
Should you? Man, we are about to get catified up in here. Let’s go. JAZZY INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC Let’s break it down to the questions that I get asked most often.
It’s not just, should i spay or neuter? The question usually revolves around marking behavior, cats who are just bound and determined to get outside. And when they do, bad things happen. You can’t stop a sexually mature cat from wanting to roam. For the males, they have a hormonal prime directive.
Which is to populate their territory. And for the females, they’ll be rolling around on the pavement. They’ll be leaving scent everywhere. How do I get my cat to stopping peeing all over the house? Most the time, I’ll tell them to take that blacklight of yours, go outside the house, and I bet you’ll.
Find evidence of neighborhood cats, feral cats that are also marking against your house. So it’s a pretty normal reaction on your cat’s part to say, hey, hey. I draw the battle lines right here. This is my place, and I’ll pee on this wall.
While you’re peeing on the opposite side. The problem is you’ve got a hormonal war on your hands. And the only way to deal with that is spaying or neutering. I can’t fix the behavior unless we fix the animal. That’s the bottom line. A lot of folks say to me, well, I’ve.
Heard that if i spay my cat or if i neuter my cat, they tend to get really fat. No, no. That’s not a cause and effect. What tends to happen is that they spend all this time that they were outside roaming inside the house.
You don’t occupy their time by playing with them, and instead they are now eating way too much and not doing anything. And that’s why they get fat. So as long as you pick up the slack in terms of giving them activities, then.
