Basic Cat Behaviour Problems

We are regularly contacted by owners wanting to give up their cat in cases where we consider a couple of minor fixes would solve the problem for ever. It’s such a shame for this to happen. While some pet owners’ minds can’t be changed once the decision has been made to give up an animal, others who are more open-minded to solutions may appreciate some advice and support.

We are happy to provide some basic advice by telephone, and will refer you to behaviour counsellors where appropriate. Alternatively, your vet may be able to help in the same way.

You can download lots of advice relating to the common problems such as urinating in the house, scratching furniture, bothering the baby, attacking / fighting the children, the cat needing too much attention, here.
