I clean the litter box like 3 times a day, sanitize/wipe down and everything. Cats are now using pee pads in the box instead of the dust because i'm having SEVERE health problems from the dust. One cat is fine with this because he pees on the ceiling (which i started lining about 8 months ago) so it doesn't make a difference to him. When he poops he just wraps it up in the pee pad on the ground and I airlift it out. We're on good terms.    My girl cat is a little over 1....
Yeah, he hates all litters except the clay. Which is silly, because he was a homeless cat for years and lived in a parking lot so I'm sure he didn't have clay litter there.
Right now I have the pad in the litter box so they understand this is where they need to go. My girl cat pooped and then covered it with the pad so she gets it. He's just holding it in and going to pop at some point. I haven't left the room to make sure he doesn't pop on the bed.
I have tried every litter. One of my two cats will ONLY use clay litter. The problem is that we're sharing a very, very small bedroom in my parents house. We have been so far for about 6 months and will for another few months. I just cleared out the closet from my mother's belongings and put the box in there and it really didn't help that much. The silica dust is making me really sick. I can barely breathe and I spend the majority of my day + sleep in this room and I have...
Well I don't know what to say. I've been giving him treats and affection and the humping is getting worse. There are a couple of weird things. He only humps the spot I put my head down in the bed/blankets. He tries to hump my other cat still but she fights him until he stops trying and gives up. It's not horribly frequent for her. I think he knows he can't win so he doesn't try. But he wins against my things so I literally keep walking in on it. I leave to go to rhe...
Oh wow, thanks for all this info! I'm not sure it's the attention thing as I left my job and became a pet photographer and am with him more than I'm not with him. That said, maybe he is stressed about something or wants the female cat's attention. She's less amorous than he is, she likes to play and scurry around more than cuddle and is a bit aloof. I did used to sleep with him in my arms before I got married so that may be part of it, too. The humping started after I...
Ok, maybe "out of control" is an extreme way to put it but it's becoming an issue. My boy cat has always humped things that are soft - those plush like blankets. So I got rid of them all. Then he started humping fleece so I got rid of the fleece blankets except the "Paws Off" pet cover I use for my bed, which he can't hump because it's pulled tight across the bed. If it's not pulled tight and any part of it is loose, he'll grab it with his mouth and go at it and drool all...
It's been about 15 hours. She's acting normal. Harassing me by zipping all over the room and begging for food. Our vet isn't open but I'll be sure to call.
SO my little 8lb cat ate a strip of a plastic wrapper. I had a crystal lite container and you know how it has the little strip that wraps around the lid of the canister and you pull it off so you can lift off the lid and get to the individual packets? I pulled it off, it didn't ALL come off but it was like 6 inches by half a centimeter wide and is flat obviously. I put it down on my dresser and when I went to throw it away, she had it and ran off with it. She ran under the...
Maybe. I'll try anything at this point. There was one time he went while squatting and it was a perfect scoop. A PERFECT SCOOP. I feel like he was taunting me. Like, I can if i want to... but I don't want to.
