My Assesment so far:


~Avoids peeing on bathroom rug during a litter change/novice


~ Sits patiently for food/Novice


~Attacks house plants-Professional


~Annoying nocturnal activity/Professional


~He'll wake you up at 5am even if you got home from work at 3am/Professional


~Destroys perfectly new headphones/professional


 


Ever  have someone say to you "It followed me home" or I swear I'll take care of it, or  "can you watch my cat, dog or snake til I find it a home?" 


How often does that turn into a reclaim?


 So here''s my story, and I think fellow petowners can relate to my frustrations.


I've been "watching" Acey Bear for a good 4.5 months now.  It appears to be an 8 month old neutered male.   I refuse to go thru 300 lbs of files for his papers, but he will see a vet this Tuesday. The Cat +Car, this should be interesting.  Sighs...


 


He's Alpha, extremely friendly, and not too skitish.  He has a special ritual of swatting at my toes while I'm in the tub.  He appears to be tired from being tired.  The reason I think he's bipolar is b/c, one second he's purring and seconds later he goes into this Squirrel avenger mode.


Exhibits A & B below.


 


-------------------->??


Please tell me I don't have the Norman Bates of Cats??


Ohh, I almost forgot.  'Ol Acey Bear has darted out on me a few times, giving me the pleasure of looking like a complete fool.  I wound up "baby talking" him to come back inside from the roof infront of my new neighbors.


 


Any offers??, meaning, how much mullah do I have to pay you to take it????


Disclaimer:  I may consider on keeping him for my FURever cat if the YaYa's consider me for membership.  If not, the cat GOES.

Some Tips for Nips -

My Assesment so far:


~Avoids peeing on bathroom rug during a litter change/novice.  Cats rarely do this.  They wait for the opportunity to scratch n' bury!


~ Sits patiently for food/Novice  Watch his weight. Cat appetites don't sate like ours do so they will eat as much as you feed them.  Until they are ridiculously obese.  Owners with fat cats are doing them a major disservice. Feed him a little less and he'll yowl at the sound of the can opener.  That's a housecat's translation of the lion's, "Let me get at that felled antelope!"  Keeps him sleek and fast.


~Attacks house plants-Professional  This is an invitation to YOU to play with him.  Swish something like a houseplant on a stick for him to attack. Then switch to other interactive toys.


~Annoying nocturnal activity/Professional  All cats are nocturnal.  Yours is a very healthy male!  Satisfy his hunting instincts with games, provide much affection and a balanced diet and Acey Bear will make you his own!


~He'll wake you up at 5am even if you got home from work at 3am/Professional  You have come home to feed him.  He's hungry after all that running around at night with nothing to kill and eat.  After his nightshift, he want to eat and flop.


Sound familiar?


~Destroys perfectly new headphones/professional.  Headphones have spongy foam earpiece covers that can be worked off and batted around like baby birds until you get home with the real food.  LOL!

Usually!

Don't bring him loose.  He'll be all over the car while you handle the wheel.  That can mean coming up from behind from the back seat to use your soulders as a perch, claws out.  Or getting in down around your legs for his safety as you try to operate the pedals without sandwiching him.  Figure out a way to contain him.  And I don't mean in somebody's arms.  If he panics he'll use his paw and feet claws to get out of anyone's grasp in order to figure out the car himself.


If you don't have a carrier use a beach towel and a friend to engineer him into a ventilated cardboard box.  He'll yowl all the way to the vet like somebody's got a steak knife in him.  It is a unique cry.  It is his distress call and depending on the volume and duration means he's panicked and calling for help. 


Don't let him out until the vet office takes over. He'll shoot out of the box!  Watch how they handle him.  You'll have to do the same thing when you get home. 


 Bring a friend with you!


He's Alpha, extremely friendly, and not too skitish.  He has a special ritual of swatting at my toes while I'm in the tub.  He appears to be tired from being tired.  The reason I think he's bipolar is b/c, one second he's purring and seconds later he goes into this Squirrel avenger mode.


You have one happy teenaged cat on your hands.  He loves to play.  Might have been mistreated if his behavior is kinda tame/feral unpredictable and you don't speak "Cat".  Have fun with Acey Bear!

You can also lure your cat back in with the sound of an electric can-opener or just open a can within view, put the contents in a bowl and call him to lunch.  Then retreat. He'll come running.  lol


Dunno about Ya Ya.  There's a catspeak qual.

Thanks for the info Marlyb, I've connect some dots. The cat is understimulated.  I still think this cat has a  preference when it comes to litter, he's odd. Maybe I'm not changing it enough.  I hate the feel of litter on my feet. bleh.  I've noticed he's very finicky and  only likes my slim jims and the gravy' in his wet food.  I know what's in Buffallo Blue dog food, but I refuse to look at the ingredients of cat food, .  I don't want to know.  lol

Eek Lonna look what ajsdaddyCCSO's big ugly dog did to your thread!


A lot of cats love to play, but some can be quite indifferent to pouncing on stuff you present.  They turn up their noses at toys. 


Beware. A cat will train you by turning up its nose at food until you are feeding him a varied diet of unseasoned fresh hooked yellow tail, lightly sauteed and cooled to room temperature with a side of unseasoned chopped chicken liver and a platter of cream.  You can jump down that rabbit hole if you decide to become your cat's personal chef and slave. I prefer to pat a cat on the head for bagging its own lunch then showing up on the doorstep to 'share.' Cats aren't cruel.  They injure a bird to cripple it until they are ready to eat it.  After all, a cat does't have a Hello Kitty bar refrigerator.


 Never declaw or collar a cat.  They can't escape dogs and ajsdaddyCCSO by climbing a tree.  A collared cat can hang herself on a branch!  Lonely cat owners over-indulge and let their pets grow obese.  Like a fat human, their cat grows sedentary and falls into ill health.


Yes, cats do have litter preferences.  They hate it when their box gets dirty. Cats are very fastidious animals. As hunters who employ stealth they constantly groom to keep clean and scent free. They will groom you too - as a member of their tribe.  Longhairs can't stay ahead of it themselves.  They have to be brushed or they cough up great hairballs.  I hate the longhair and hairball combo.  At that point, I'd rather pick a dog's company!


I don't keep a housecat. I like my cat to have access to the outdoors to lead a catly life.  Where I live, a cat would get nailed by coyotes or hit by a car.   I won't have a litter box in my life.  So, I do without a cat.


MEOW!!!!

 They sell mats at walmart that go next to the litter box so your cat can remove the litter from it's paws. My cats also have a preference for darker litter. They are very unique animals.

 Lonna,


He's a male; they are notoriously contrary. My two female cats are not picky about the littter in their boxes; their brother, on the other hand, will poop anywhere BUT in the litter box if the brand does not meet with his classical approval. If it is not EverClean, I can guarantee that he will poop on whichever rug is the most readily accessible at the time.

We live too close to a highway, and are in an are heavily populated by red foxes and racoons (both of which carry rabies, which runs rampant in this county. My granddather died of rabies, which makes me all the more skittish. Also he arrived in my life already declawed, something I will never do but it was already a done deal).  Otherwise, Colby Jmes would be let out the door to poop.

Sabrina and Bella are our two, Bella arrived declawed (Donna Lynn's daughter rescued her) but someone forgot to tell her ! I've seen her catch a bird on wing and run up the side of the house. Sabrina is the mighty huntress but she is getting a little old ( she's 11) They both are indoor/outdoor cats. But when it's time to go to bed they expect to be let in to sleep in whoseever bed they decide to grace that night. Both treat our dogs like they are little pups or bad kittens LOL. Now, Shadow is 68 lbs and Dixie is 58 lbs, they are lab/catahoula mixes but the cats just treat them like family. LOL

I can relate a little MamaCat. 


My Mother had an indoor/outdoor cat that used to leave dead birds on her porch. The cat never ate them, so  I guess this is a sign of establishing it's place in the pack order, and/or a thank you gift to what it considers it's master. Makybe I'm over thinking the whole thing, and it was just a swap, the bird for the wet food?  lol


 


I've had a few temporary foster felines.  Cat's are usually skittish for the first 48 hours, but later become alpha.  Their not as interested in the dogs as the dogs are of them.  One cat let my Pit know by clawing him on the lip tearing two of the holes on his flaps, little Izzy doesn't care to play with cats.


Speaking of food, too many people feeding Bipolar Cat, who hopefully will return to his former staff member soon.  We're giving him treats to sit as if he was a dog.  I'm guilty too, ok ok,  I'm the prime suspect!.


Doc says he's slightly overweight.  Less is best.

NO Lonna ! When they bring you food it means they LOVE you !!! Sabrina and Bella both bring us dead critters, my male Sindar (he was 19 when he died) in his prime, birds, snakes even squirrels  and usually alive so I would have to chase him and make him let them go LOL

 I feel your pain.  I had a cat that was mentaly challanged.   When she had to go to the bathroom she started getting antsy.  And we would take her down to the litterpan and put her feet up on the wall.    Hubby and the rottie sitting with her waiting for her to go.
