We do not always realise the true reasons why cats act out, why they become depressed, reclusive or even rebellious. Take a step back, look at these proud majestic little beings in their perfect, yet small bodies. They have the personality of a lion, they act and live like wild animals. Let's show them the respect that they demand, and give them the pleasure to be the wild little beings that they so desperately strive to be.
Think about it, what does your cat do every day?
They repeat the same pattern:
They sleep, eat, groom themselves, they play, and they often go and look for something to hunt. Be that a butterfly outside, a fly inside.
Cats remain cats - and they want to be wild.
Why is humanising a cat not a good idea?
- Dressing your cat is degrading to that animal's purpose in life. This does not mean you are not able to give them a warm top for extra protection during the cold seasons indeed.
- Potty trained cats are human luxury. They would, however, prefer to go outside.
Keep the sandbox clean, do not use strong chemicals. cleaning it with very mild soap and water is just fine.
Strong chemicals will encourage them to urinate on your furniture and other areas where the smell lasts longer. They need to ensure that their territory is made known to any unwelcome visitors. Keeping the litterbox near a ventilated area (like the window or the cat flap) is the best place to put it. Not only does it help you keep the house fresh, but it also helps the cat maintain a strong presence of its territory. By using a mild soap, you will be able to keep the cat litter box clean, but not destroy their distinctive odour that they so desperately rely on in the wild.
- Spend your money wisely on scratch posts and items that bring out the wild side in them.
- Train your cat to correct behavioural problems and other fun activities, but help them to be the best version of who they are.
Please, let's keep them beautiful, let's keep them dignifiedly wild.
