How to get along with a cat – how to get along with a cat

       First of all, in my opinion, it’s inhumane and irresponsible to throw kittens!!

       In addition, in fact, it doesn’t matter if a female cat loses her own child. After 72 hours, she has no consciousness of being a mother again and will not take the initiative to find her kitten. Even if she sees it again, she will not recognize it

       But after all, cats have brains. What you do will surely reduce its trust in you. It is normal to ignore you

       I can only say that you like cats very much

       Yes! But you are selfish. Your love for the cat is not selfless. You can’t like all of it. You can’t tolerate its life, its emotion, its children, its mistakes

       So, why should it tolerate your life, your emotions, your mistakes?!

       What’s the point of keeping a cat?!

       I think it’s a mistake to keep a pet blindly before one develops a sense of responsibility for it!

       How many pets have been abandoned… How many pets have escaped

       Before you like an animal, you should think about whether you can afford their life. Can you give them better, more, what they can ask for??

       There is a reward for giving. Pets have their own thinking. They can understand your good. … especially cats!!

       Cats are naturally proud. When their trust in you is reduced, you can’t touch them at will!

       The voice of a cat lover

       To make two cats live in peace, it is best to do the following:

       1. Old cats must be immunized.

       Before bringing a new cat into the house, you must at least ensure that the old cat is immunized and within the period of validity of the immunization. If you have decided to bring a new cat into your home and the old cat is not immunized, you must bring the old cat to the house first. The vaccine won’t work until a week after immunization, when you can consider taking the new cat home. If the old cat is not immune and the new cat is not immune, once the new cat is a carrier of feline fever / viral rhinotracheitis or feline calicivirus, the two cats may get sick at the same time. At this time, the time, energy and money troubles brought to the owners are beyond our regret.

       2. Isolation

       New cats must be quarantined. The requirement for the isolated place is that the old cat can’t get in absolutely, which will affect the old cat’s original life style to the minimum extent. The isolation can be a room in the home (there must be a door that can be locked). If you don’t have a separate room, or if the old cat is used to sleeping with you in the bedroom, you can isolate it on a sealed balcony or bathroom (also with a door).

       3. Sterilize the cat.

       This can reduce the incidence of disease. It can also put an end to the struggle caused by the estrus when two cats are together. Because of the different physiological structure of cats, because estrus and childbirth may cause many diseases. For male cats, it can avoid the problems of androgen tumor and prostate hypertrophy caused by estrus. In addition, frequent estrus male cats are most likely to have urinary tract obstruction, because there are secretions blocked, sterilization surgery can fundamentally solve this problem.

       4. Old cats must be better.

       Play with him more, talk with him, and feed him some delicious food by hand. Let him not too much occupation consciousness, so that the two cats can get along better.

       Extended data:

       Before bringing a new cat into the house:

       Cats are animals with a strong sense of domain. Generally, new members are not welcome to enter the house. They should be given enough time to adapt. The adaptation period may vary from 4 weeks to 12 weeks due to the different personalities of cats and various environmental factors.

       The ideal new cat is the age, body size is smaller than the old cat, opposite sex, not to sexual maturity, or has been sterilized, the character is similar to the old cat. However, in reality, such a combination is relatively small, we can estimate the length of adaptation period according to the following factors, and make adequate psychological preparation¡ª¡ª

       The origin of cats: stray cats are generally competitive, with strong territorial desire and the courage to defend themselves. Artificial feeding of large orphan cats is generally a little timid, in this case, it takes a long time to adapt.

       Body shape: a new cat with a smaller body is less threatening to the old cat. Hairy cats will look bigger than they really are, so don’t just look at the weight, look at the appearance.

       Age: a kitten born to 12 weeks of age lacks the ability to judge and respond to the environment correctly. Such a kitten cannot be allowed to face another cat alone. It’s best to be around at all times.

       Kittens from 12 weeks to 6 months are full of energy and mischievous. For big cats, especially old cats, they are very annoying. Cats aged 6 months to 2 years old are still teenagers. Old cats should be sterilized and new cats should be sterilized as soon as possible. It’s hard to get along with two sexually mature, same-sex cats.

       A cat over 2 years old is fully grown up. The general character of a cat has been shaped at this time. Two cats of this age group are more likely to adapt to each other when their reaction to the outside world (timidity or boldness, etc.) and vitality (sleeping all day or not quiet all the time) are similar.

       Cats over 8 years old are old. No matter whether he is a new cat or an old cat, he is more likely to be anxious and depressed in the process. Therefore, it is necessary to consider bringing a new cat into the house under such circumstances.

       Gender: cats that are not sexually mature are rarely considered a threat and are easily accepted. The sterilized cats are weaker in competitiveness, territorial desire and possessive desire, so they can get along better. Most of the two male cats, who are sexually mature and not sterilized, will constantly chase and fight with each other, and urinate in circles everywhere.

       Pay attention to the jealousy of the cat’s predecessors. If you want to have another cat, you should pay attention to the relationship between the two cats. The cat looks calm on the surface, but it is really jealous. When it sees the owner doting on the new kitten, it will be jealous and deliberately attack the new pet. Most of the time, the new pet is kitten. The owner holds the kitten and says to the cat’s elder, “this is kitten. Take care of it more.” He thought it would be safe and sound, but in fact, the cat’s predecessors were already depressed. Cats are not gregarious and like to act alone. The arrival of the new kitten makes it feel that its sphere of influence has been violated, and will subconsciously resist, and some even run away from home.

       First of all, in order to avoid future disputes, the only way is to give face to senior cats. Think about ginger is still old and spicy, so you should imitate the cat’s voice to say hello to the cat’s elder, and then embrace it to show that you still love it. This is very important, so that the cat can be at ease. When cats meet, they can hold their ancestors. In addition, if you apply the urine of the elder cat to the squint bottom of the new kitten, it means that the elder cat has recognized this new partner, and the disputes will be reduced.

       ¡¤Before bringing a new cat into the house:

       A place of isolation.

       New cats must be quarantined!

       The requirement for the isolated place is that the old cat can’t get in absolutely, which will affect the old cat’s original life style to the minimum extent. The isolation can be a room in the home (there must be a door that can be locked). If you don’t have a separate room, or if the old cat is used to sleeping with you in the bedroom, you can isolate it on a sealed balcony or bathroom (also with a door). If only the toilet is available and the old cat’s toilet is also in the toilet, you can move his toilet to a new location. If possible, do this preparation one or two weeks in advance. In short, the smaller the change in the old cat’s original lifestyle, the more conducive it will be for him to adapt to the arrival of the new cat. If all of the above conditions are not available (to be honest, I don’t think there should be another cat in the house if there is no second door in addition to the front door), a larger cage can be covered with cloth for isolation facilities, but it is better to have the new cat free of any disease at this time.

       For the requirements of the isolation area, the main thing is that there is no dangerous or harmful thing to the cat. The place is not required to be large, but smaller is easy to adapt to. The isolated place should have cat litter basin, a nest for cats to hide and rest (not too complicated), and water. Food is best sent in regularly by the host, eat out, do not always put in it. This will help the new cat quickly establish the relationship between the new owner and the food, as well as the corresponding trust and emotion. After all the preparation (material, psychological) is done, you can take the new cat home. But the process of adaptation is just beginning:

       Step 1: after taking the new cat home, put him directly in an isolated place. Don’t stay any longer, come out immediately and close the door.

       Then say hello to the old cat according to the original home procedure. Leave the bag or cage containing the new cat at home (not directly in front of the old cat) and observe the old cat’s reaction. Some cats will be nervous, ha, and even attack the cage (ready for a protracted war), some will howl, run away and come back (typical), and others will be curious and excited (optimistic outlook). Keep an eye on the cage until the old cat has completely lost interest in the cage. To stay with the old cat for a while and not to see the new cat for a while, he needs some time to adapt to the environment in the isolation zone. After at least an hour, you can bring some food to see the new cat. If this is your first contact with the cat, don’t try to get close to him. Talk to him gently and wait for him to approach you. Don’t stay too long. 30 minutes to an hour is enough. In the future, you can see him several times a day, about an hour each time. If you touch a new cat, it’s better to wash your hands before approaching the old one. Even so, the old cat may still be confused by the strange smell on you, so ha you. Pay attention to how much time the cat spends outside the door sniffing or sitting outside. Only when the old cat is not hostile to the cage where the new cat is put, the smell of the new cat on you, or the door of the quarantine area, can you enter the second step.

       In this step, it should be noted that the old cat must be better. Play with him more, talk with him, feed him some delicious food by hand, spoil him, and make him feel that his status at home and in your heart is not threatened.

       In the first step, some changes can be made. After the new cat is familiar with the isolation area and has established basic trust in people, he can be released out for a short period of time every day to familiarize him with the environment of other places in the family. At this time, it is necessary to isolate the old cat. It is better not to isolate the new cat, but to have someone accompany him to avoid being too nervous. Then the new cat is sent back to the quarantine room, and the old cat is released to observe his behavior.

       Step 2: restrictive contact.

       Limit contact between new and old cats. They can see each other through the glass door, but they can’t touch each other, or they can open a small crack in the door of the isolation area, so that they can touch their noses and wave their claws, but they can’t touch each other greatly. If there is no one at home during the day, make sure that all the settings can achieve the purpose of limiting contact before going out, but there will not be any way to break through the barriers. If there is enough space for the cat’s paws to stretch under the door of the quarantine area, then one or two steps are actually carried out at the same time.

       During the period, if you go home with a new cat and an old cat greeting you at the same time, you must respond to the old cat first. New cats will understand that.

       When the new cat and the old cat are calm in this situation and rarely HA or roar at each other, the third step can be taken.

       Step 3: full contact.

       Open the door of the quarantine area and let the old and new cats meet. Don’t introduce it deliberately. Open the door when the old cat is not near the quarantine area. Let them “inadvertently” meet each other instead of “meet formally.”. Watch their reactions closely. They may still be chasing each other, but as long as there is no fierce fighting, continue to observe. When fighting, you can say “no fighting” or spray water to separate them. Don’t use your hands to separate the fighting cat. It’s easy to hurt people. In addition, when cats fight, it always sounds worse than the actual situation, so don’t worry too much. Trim your cat’s nails regularly to reduce the damage. If the fight is very fierce, or if we fight again soon after separation, we should go back to the second step for a period of time, and then go to the third step.

       It is suggested that in this step, under the supervision of someone, we should first contact once a day for a short period of time, gradually to many times, a short time, then a long time, and finally the whole day. The first full day contact is selected at the weekend, and then the host observation and necessary intervention are carried out. Leave them at home all day long until you are confident that they will live in peace.

       In short, introducing new cats to old cats should be a gradual process, which requires patience. It is better to be cautious than to be eager for success. Separate bowls and water bowls are necessary, and separate litter basins may also be necessary. In addition, pay attention to observe whether the cat has symptoms of mental stress, such as eating fast and then vomiting, over combing themselves, and overeating are all signs of unhappiness. Pulling urine everywhere at home, abnormal call, often hiding is also a sign of tension.

       Generally speaking, after such a process (kittens may only take a few days, adult cats may take as long as a month), most cats can at least get along with each other. As for whether they can become good friends, it depends on their fate.

       The isolation of the two cats at the beginning is very important. Cats can identify whether they are their own or not by smell. If two cats are of good character, it’s OK to say that a timid cat like you can plant deep fear or threat.

       If the two cats have not been received together, I will suggest (based on the experience of two aborigines in the family who have lived in four adopted / generation cats, for reference only)

       1. The first 3 ~ 5 days must be isolated! If there are two new and old cats, isolate the new cat in a separate space, which can make the new cat familiar with the environment and relieve the tension. The owner comforts the old cat.

       2. New cats can use old cats’ blankets, sand pots, etc. to speed up the assimilation of odor.

       3. At the beginning, give two cats a little time to live together, and observe the relationship between the two cats. If the hostility is not so heavy, you can increase the time every day (for example, at the beginning, one or two minutes a day, and then gradually increase to more than ten minutes a day), until the two cats can fight normally, instead of each other, and then walk away.

       These are the ways to ease the relationship between cats. It can only be said that it can increase the probability of getting along with each other. But whether we can love each other or not depends on the cat’s own character. For example, it is very difficult for two cats who want to be the eldest to become good friends.

       Let the cat like you, is to get along with it more, talk to it, let it feel your presence.

       Cats actually understand human nature, if you spoil it, it will also be coquettish to you~~~~

       Ha ~ ~ ~ ~ this is my family’s, everything dotes on her. But the cat does wrong or to educate, but can’t ruthlessly scold and hit. It can only be taught many times that it has done something wrong

       Kittens are easy to have feelings with their new owners. As long as you feed them, tease them in their spare time, or touch their hair with their hands and scratch their chin gently, they will be satisfied easily. There is also a point that you must often talk to it, and whisper softly, and do not scold or beat it casually.
