Behavioral Issues That A Cat Can Present

A common behavioral issue is for your cat to start peeing on something. If you purchase a new cat bed that a particular cat in your house likes he may pee on it if another cat happens to sleep in it. When they pee on something they are marking it with their scent and show the other cats it is off limits to them.  UN – neutered male cats are not good to have in your house as they love to mark their territory as it is part of natures way with them. A cat may pee on a new boyfriends coat because your cat wants all of your attention and your cat is jealous so to speak. If there are two female cats in your house one may start peeing on things to show the other cat she is the matriarch of the house. If  your cat pees on something get rid of it or clean it but do not replace it with a new one right away as that may be what they want if it is a cat bed.

Some cats stop using the litter box if you add another cat to your household. Cats do not like any change in their daily routine whatsoever. Your cat may use a house plant as a litter box. Introduce a new cat into your home slowly. Put the new cat in an enclosed room for five days where the other cats can smell him and he can smell them. Your cats should get along fine when you use this method and the litter box should not be a problem.

Some cats pull out their fur or lick their fur off. They may have a nervous condition or a skin problem that should be addressed by your Vet. Your cat could have fleas if he keeps itching away and he should be treated with flea treatment medicine.

Cats do not like anything new to come into the house, Having a new couch or chair in a room can upset them terribly. I put a cushion from the old couch on the new couch so it has that old familiar smell to it. Place an old blanket on a new piece of furniture so it smells like it has always been in you home. I hope your feline friends will not have any behavioral issues and you have smooth sailing ahead.

The older we get the less we like changes. We all have our daily routines. We do like to try out new things and we must be patient with adapting to new electronics and much more. Be patient with your friends and your feline friends.
