Cat Training: Deal with Play Fighting and Spraying
it's a fact that most cats like to play around, running here and
there, scratching furniture or biting you. But Sometimes cats can
be so energetic that can cause damage when playing. And what about
spraying? All cats spray their territory to mark it and make it
their own. Do you have a house training tactic to deal with these
start with play fighting. Cats are carnivorus animals, they like
hunting, attacking and biting their preys with their claws. They
like playing like that and they do not really understand that this
behavior can cause any damage. It's their natural instict that orders
cats to behave likewise.
what is the best house cat training method to prevent your cat from
damaging you or your child when playing? Here are some possible
solutions to the problem:
Buy some cat toys allowing the cat to play with another cat or alone.
You can also find some time everyday to play with the cat by having
the pet chasing a string.
You can use a squirt bottle (You can find it in any pet shop). Fill
the bottle with water and spray your cat when, for example, you
thing it's trying to use it's claws on you. You can buy a few small
bottles and put them in different places in your house and use them

a totally unacceptable house cat training method and will have no
a few things about spraying.
is a common cat behavior performed especially by male cats. The
best solution to that would be to neuter the cat. This generally
solves the problem.
your cat still sprays after that then there's probably a new cat
in the neighbourhood and is walking around your house. In that case
you can disable physical contact with new cats or other pets in
the neighbourhood until your cat feels comfortable.
can also try buying a repellant (you can find it in any pet store)
and spray it around your house so that other cats will not approach
