A lot of the articles I’ve published on this blog over the years are articles based on problems I’ve had at home with my own felines.
Some problems were quick to fix, others which took ages to solve or still haven’t been completely resolved yet.
A few examples of articles like these include:
- My cat keeps begging to be fed all the time, how can I get him/her to stop?
- My cat meows and cries at night, how can I fix this?
- I need my cat to be able to play by him/herself when I’m away at work, what can I do?
- I have a house cat and he/she’s bored all the time, what can I do?
- Making cats like carriers so trips to the vet are less stressful.
- Making cats more okay being in cars so trips to the vet are less stressful.
- How can I keep my cats off counters?
- How to keep cats from scratching leather furniture.
- I’d like my cat to be more cuddly, can I train my cat to snuggle more?
Whether or not I have the perfect solution to the problem, I find it’s a good idea to share what I’ve learned with others who may need some ideas on directions to take with their own furry friends at home.
At times, I will also write about solutions and fixes I can think up to help others who stumble across my blog and have a different problem than I’ve come across in my time spent as a cat mommy.
Usually, these come from the comments section on posts, where pet parents will share a different spin on a problem they’ve had that’s roughly on the same topic as I’ve discussed.
They also come from emails I sometimes get from pet parents, asking for help with a really particular problem, or even actually more general problems that I’ve seen a considerable number of pet parents need help with, even if they’re not the most serious problems to have (like with cutting cat nails).
Here are a few examples of articles like these:
- My cat hates getting his nails cut. How can I make the process more smooth?
- I’m a first time cat owner and my new cat hates me.
- My cat was ill and got better, but now his personality and behaviour have changed. What can I do to help?
- After adopting a second cat, my first cat’s personality changed. How can I fix this?
- After adopting a second cat, my first cat pees everywhere, including on me. How can I fix this?
Essentially, problems and fixing problems, to the best of my ability, have been the largest part of what makes this blog enjoyable to me.
I like helping people with their cat problems, if I can, and to be honest, when I haven’t been able to, a lot of times other pet parents who stumble across the articles I write help out pet parents who have left comments before them with their own words of advice.
I’d therefore love to open this article’s comments section up to ask for any problems you’re currently facing as a pet parent to a cat: what are your most frustrating cat-related problems right now?
If you have a number, take the time to list them. If you have one, and can think of relevant information that might be able to help with solving it, do take the time to list your thoughts as well.
I’ll try my best to answer as many of the questions you have, but I also would love it if you took the time to read through a couple of other comments, if you can, and reply to any pet parents who are having problems that you have ideas with regards to fixing.
Fixed that problem yourself before? Even better! But even if you’ve never had that issue yourself, ideas can really help a pet parent out, as sometimes there’s something we just didn’t come up with to try that could be the perfect fix.
Thank you in advance for sharing with all of us – whether it’s a problem to be hopefully fixed or some guidance or thoughts, or even stories, that could help another pet parent who’s going through a difficult time with a cat based on a specific problem their having.
And all the best to you and your amazing fur-babies! xo
