Kittens! Why Do They Do What They Do

Printer Friendly

Usually, if a kitten is “ignoring” a command, he was either never really taught the command in the first place (many times people just start saying Come Here or Stop It! as if the kitten could automatically understand the meaning of their words) or the owner has not made it worth the kitten’s while to care about the command.

Consequences, not commands, control a cat’s behavior. Reward your kitten for behaviors you want to see more of.

In 2008 we lost our 16 year old house cat to old age because she had told us it was her time. It took me just until the start of this spring to convince my mom to allow us to get anew cat, in which we now have Bunny Tiger. We have been told she is a Tiger Calico becaus eof her coloring, however, I plan to ask the vet about it. She is just about five months old and the one thing I notice is that she loves to claw the furniture even though we have tried to train her not to and she'll suddenly attack while playing and it's continuous and we've even tried to train her not to do this and she still continues. Is there a way to stop either of these? She is a really good cat otherwise. We haven't had any other issues with her. She even sleeps with any of us at any time.

Trisha -- Sounds like you might have to take your cat to the vet. This way, you can cure any medical reason that would make your young cat go outside the litterbox.

My kitten is 16wks old. Of course he is a wild kitty, which I am used to. He uses the litter box all the time. He had used the litter box early in his age too, but I was just sitting on my couch and he came and sat on me and started peeing on me. His litter box was clean too. Any comments?

I have a kitten and every time when I lie down she lie's on my chest and licks my face and she always sleeps with me every night. I also had a Defferent cat that use to do the same thing. Why Do They Do that?
