Every kitty has a secret. My secret will now be published on here furever!! It’s one I choose not to reveal however, it apart of me and feel it could help others.
As a kitty I was rather feisty and as I got older it got worse. A lot of humans told my mum’s to get rid of me. They didn’t and never dreamt of it, they kept me and I love them, as they love me.
So, I don’t scratch I bite. I bite hard to draw blood and leave a lines or holes, then run away and hide under the bed. I know I’ve done wrong and stay their for a little while before I come out to say sorry.
I have scared my mum’s arm so, much so, people think she self harms. But she just uses that arm to protect her face from me.
I can attack when my mum’s are in bed, if, I mew and they don’t listen to me then I attack. Sometimes I just attack for no reason! Mum1 thinks maybe, I think I am playing when I just jump and bite when mum’s are on the sofa.
Once I put mum1 in hospital. Everyfur in the street knows about my temper. So, one person who my mum’s do not know knocked on our front door with a kitty in her hands. WELL!!!! I went nuts! I caught mum1’s hand and ripped it open.
When Im out on my lead with mum2, I play up. She has to carry me back into the house with oven gloves. The neighbours think its funny! Mum1 takes no messing so, I’m good with her.
My mum’s think it’s the panther in me, it comes alive sometimes. After all we are kitties that will have the hunter instinct in us.
It sound so bad, and I don’t like talking about it but feel maybe there’s people out their with kitties like myself.
I have improved, my behaviour has became more manageable. I used to attack daily when now it maybe once a week or once every two weeks. My mums use scents for kitties. She uses Feliway or Pet Remedy which works for me.
Most importantly they treat me like a cat and not like a child. They play with me a lot and I have a catio to ensure I get all my energy out. They know my movements and know that if I swish my tail in a certain way that I am not to be touched.
While I am not the lap cat my mum1 wanted I am always her fur baby and she loves me unconditionally. With mum2, I’m her lap cat! They both adore me and treat me well.
They get offended by people telling them to get rid of me. They say I’m a living creature and I have a home with them furever. I am their responsibility and that’s that. They love me for me.
Everyfur isn’t purfect and I certainly am not. I hope I continue to improve and my mum1 has said that when I stop attacking them she will get a tattoo to cover the bite scars.
If, you have a problem with your kitty please do not give up. Time and patients is needed! Kittys are wild by nature however, humans domesticated them but some will always be more ‘wild’ than some. Please learn your kitties body language and your own. Provide plenty of playful opportunities.
Remember its ok not to have that lap cat that’s portrayed on TV and in social media. We’re all different and unique.
I don’t want to portray me as a bad, bad kitty. My start out in life wasn’t great and I’m learning.
Purrs and hugs to all
