Cat Litter Training

 cat litter training
Training a cat to have its litter at the same place is one of the most difficult aspects of training a cat. A cat is an animal which is sensitive to smell and its therefore very important that we know how to handle them properly else it will be a very futile pursuit. I used to have my cat litter on different carpets each time which made my life very difficult until my friend told me certain tips that helped me understand my cat and train it to litter at one particular place. Am sure any cat lover will find these tips for cat litter training very useful.

The 1st and most important thing is to provide is to provide the cat a litter box that is of enough size for the cat to move around and dig. It should be kept at a special location preferably a dark place where the cat can escape to whenever it wants to without any disturbance. Also its very important that u treat the cat in the beginning every time the cat uses the box. While doing this you should keep in mind not to be disturbing its privacy as well. The box should be cleaned daily. This is very important so the cat doesn't feel like wanting to change locations due to same smell.

Also if you are introducing a new cat or kitten then be sure to confine the cat with the new litter box for some time so to get it used the surrounding environment.

These measures will go a long way in ensuring u have a litter trained cat or kitten.

How to introduce a new kitten or cat to other pets ?

Introducing a new kitten in an household can always be difficult, i remember the 1st time i tried introducing a Persian kitten to my Siamese mother cat. She hissed at such a high frequency, it scared everyone in the house and i had to leave the Persian kitten at my friend's place. We always wonder why we cant just tell the mother cat to take care of this poor orphan kitten.

After this bitter experience , i set out to find out what i had to do to ensure the same experience never happened again and it turned out to be very simple yet very effective. First and foremost one must realize no cat can be made to adjust to another cat or kitten in a single day. The process has to be slow so as make sure the distress levels are minimum.

Hissing is a common welcome given by all cats to new comers and its bound to happen almost always. But at the same time it will subside in around a couple of weeks. The mother cat must be made to familiarize the smell of the kitten. We can do that by making the kittens of the cat as well as the new kitten play together or by exchanging blankets or both. The key to the process is to make sure the mother cat feels calm and happy by providing her treats whenever the new kitten comes or so on. This is improtant inorder to prevent jealousy. Once the kitten starts playing with other kittens in front of the mother cat it will be safe to assume the cat is at ease and in a week or two am sure they will all be sharing the same domain. The important thing to remember at all times is to give it proper space in the beginning and then merge the spaces slowly together.

This worked for me and am sure it will for you as well. For any advise comment below.

The Bombay Cats

The Bombay is a rare breed of cats . Nikki Horner crossed sable Burmese with pure black American Bobtail with the intention of creating a "miniature black panther" and finally was developed in 1958 . Bombays are a muscular healthy breed which usually come with a short satiny black coat and do not require much grooming as they groom themselves but the cat maybe brushed regularly to get rid of dead hairs .This is not much of a show cat . Sometimes Bombays are seen with sable coats as well . This is a recessive trait and NOT a health problem . These cats live upto 12 to 20 years and for companionship from family members and would mostly follow them to be in action or it will settle down on someone's lap (hence the name "lap cats") or will find someone to play with . This is not a shy cat and socializes very easily making a great family pet but it has a tendency to dominate other pets in the household and this may cause problems . Though a loud and active cat Bombay breed prefers a calm environment without much loud and startling noises and too much exposure to such may cause a nervous disorder in the cat and it will start losing fur from tail and stomach . Few Bombays are prone to a genetic disorder known as Burmese Carniofacial Defect in which the cat will possess a defomed skull a result of certain crossbreeding . Bombay Cats make great pets and should have a monitored diet since they are prone to obesity .
