Lessons Learned From My Cat — 2 Comments

  1. I am so happy for you Sharani, and for Bowtie too. Seems you have learned quite a lot in a short time and made the adjustment well, while reaping the benefits of cat ownership or shall I say cat “parenting”. I did not know it was common cat psychology knowledge that they do not understand “no” and respond to visualizing what you want from them. I have in fact experienced that myself. It works. If you ask nice and imagine what you want them to do, they usually respond positively.

    Rocky even had her kitten in the little corner we made for her and we didn’t even show it to her yet. Russ thought she was so smart because she responded to our thoughts.

    Booboonose, our cat who adopted us a few Decembers ago, in a similar manner as Bowtie did you … tiny adorable meows heard outside our house…. she relieved my grief and pain of loss of Rocky who we loved for 18 yrs. For this I am eternally grateful to my Boonosie.

    Anyway, I digress. Booboonose still has emotional “wars” with Russ over missing the box. Getting angry at her does not help as it may with a dog or possibly a human. Suffice it to say, you have learned much faster than Russ. And I guess I still need to train them both more consistently and lovingly. Poor both of them!

    Any suggestions for removing the odor of cat urine from unfinished plywood floors?

  2. Hi Julie, Try leaving white vinegar in shallow bowls. I seem to remember someone saying it removed cigarette smoke and cat odor. Good luck. Enjoyed your comments and story about your cats! -Pritika Egemo
