Cats + Behavior

  • Cat Behavior Problems - Vocalization

    La mayoría de las quejas relacionadas con los maullidos de los gatos suelen referirse a su intensidad y persistencia o al hecho de que maúllan durante la noche, cuando los propietarios y los vecinos intentan dormir.

  • There is no delicate way to ask, “Why do cats sniff butts?” In order to comprehend why cats sniff rear ends, we first have to understand their sense of smell and their communication techniques.

  • Cats, unlike humans, rarely just plop down in bed. They spend a lot of time preparing their bed before snuggling in for the night.

  • Most of the time cats are a source of amusement, but sometimes they can be a source of embarrassment. One of the more embarrassing things that cats do is to lick their “private” parts in public.

  • While punishment can be effective at decreasing those behaviors that are undesirable (when applied within 1 to 2 seconds), if not administered properly it can aggravate existing problems and cause new ones.
