I have 2 cats, Kitten (2) Oreo (5). Oreo's always been a strange cat. he'd make huge amounts of racket from day one, knocking things over. Finally we learned and moved everything breakable up high. Oreo lived with my mom for several years while I was in school and didnt get much attention. So I took him in when I moved out and got him a friend (kitten).Theyre best friends, and love each other dearly. However, oreo is definitely the leader, and kitten, bless his soul, follows him around like a little puppy dog, aiding and abetting oreo's terrible crimes. My vet told me that oreo was overweight and needed to be put on a diet food, reduce his servings and play with him more. I've done all of that. he's weights gone down, my vet even suggested I be the spokesperson for feline weight loss. But it was shortly thereafter the problems started. Oreo will do ANYTHING to get food. Including knocking over the waste basket, chewing through rough plastic, even that metallic type material that the Greenies come in. he jumps up on the counter, opens cabinets and clears them with one foul swoop, breaking everything in his path. I tried locking the cabinets with the child safety locks, but he waits til the one time I forget and dumps an entire bag of cat food all over the floor. We moved the food to the cabinet that is above the sink. Like 2 feet up and directly over the sink. No way, right? yea, he solved that one tonight. Somehow got up there, and shattered a glass that was in the sink. He is always whining for food. We never give in. meal time is 1/3 cup in the morning, each, and a 1/3 cup around 5pm. we dont give in and give it to them early and we dont give it to them when we first wake up or first come in the door at night. Everytime we walk in the kitchen he's tripping us and whining. He's been treated for worms, and he's a completely indoor cat! I dont get it! we're not starving him. My vet says he's perfectly healthy now. What do I do to get the racket and the destruction to stop? We play with them every night in hopes that it'll calm him down. I love him dearly, but not only it is gettingon my last nerve that he's breaking everything, but I'm worried hes going to hurt himself.
