gushing with cuteness! as for those wicked claws, i’m a big fan of nail caps aka soft paws (press-on nails for animals). i like these new glittery pink ones for my girls and clear for the boys. no need to do the inhuman thing of removing their bones & my furniture is intact.
in other kitty news: one of my clients told me she had become a slave to her cat that pees all over the house. she’s lost in what to do. so insane that they actually put a litterbox on the bed. bleecch! i commend her for trying but that kitty is trying to say something. in most cases, people don’t want to deal with it after a while and gives it up or even worse, put out a domesticated declawed cat into the streets.
if the cat can talk, it would tell you this:
- urinary tract (UTI), usually happens to male cats.
- clean box. thank god my guys only made it as far as outside the box when i wasn’t doing my job
- different or new litter. i also found that they don’t like boxes w/ a door. it keeps the smell in and they don’t like being trapped in it while trying to do #1 or #2
- new cat in the house. my baby kitty made a few deposits in the big palm tree planter when she was too afraid to make her way to the litter in back of the house because she’d have to cross path with the cat i was sitting for in the house.
- spending quality time. they may be solo artist but they know when you’ve been neglecting them all too many times. they need some lubbin’ too!
anyhoo, if you really love your pet you’d take the time & effort to work with her/him. i know & have heard too many stories where people who give up, yet not really trying. its like potting training a kid, its hard & trying at times but it all takes time & patience.
