Cat House Boundaries

Tuesday, July 30, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

Is your cat  bothering your bird or other pets in the house?  Maybe you have a hamster or a small dog. The reason that your cat is bothering them is because it’s her instinct to do so.  Now,  teaching a cat to overcome these instincts can be  a bit difficult. Start by setting some other rules to help her.  Teach your cat to stay out of the room where your bird or hamster lives. You have to modify the environment to keep pets apart. For example, if you have a small dog, keep a baby gate up to keep them apart.  Don’t place the conflicting pets food, water or beds near each other.  If you do see your cat bothering another pet, spritz her face with cool water from a spray bottle.The sensation may be unpleasant enough for your cat to stop this behavior.   Do not reward her with cat treats right after you’ve spritzed her with water. She will get confused and think that by bothering the other pets, she’ll get more treats!  You may want to ask another cat owner or your veterinarian for more tips.

Remember, your pets count.
