Default Kitty On His Way

If any of you remember my getting a cat topic, i'm finally able to take him tomarrow. Hes 8 weeks old and very nuts. I got al the essentials today for $120. I'm prolly set for at least a month of litter and a couple weeks worth of food. The next few weeks will be fun and crazy. I suppose I should get bubble wrap for all my furniture, eh?

LOL Cats are like children and if you have patience they can be trained not to tear things up. It helps to get them toys and a good carpeted scratching whatever. They come in alot of different styles. Rubbing catnip on it really gets em started. And even more goofy

Please dont declaw, it causes abnormalities in their behaviour and pernament nerve damage and pain.to their feet. You have to get right on them if the scratching starts and guide them back to the scratcher. Cats are pretty smart and even the more stubborn ones usually come around even if you have to use a little rolled up newspaper. tahts goes with the litter box as well. What breed is he?

Very true and good advice.

Get a scratching post/cat perch and place it next to a sliding glass door that opens to the outside of the house. The cat will use the scratching post and not your furniture.

Also we found that a water squirt gun works wonders when the cat is doing someting that you do not want him to do. Catch him in the act and give him a squirt. If you are a good shot you should be able to hit him 3 times before he is out of there.

Hes a tabby. Hes the usual grey and black stripes, but, he kinda has white tips on his fur. Again, I don't want to declaw and do have a scratch tower. I will do anything to avoid declawing him. Even if I have to line the house with the scratch towers.

LOL, that'* a funny mental image. Anyways, I would second the squirt gun idea. I know someone who did it and it worked alright for their cats. Plus as long as you don't abuse it, it'* pretty harmless to the cat and everything else.
