Domesticated Cat Behavior – You’ll Be An Expert!

In this program, you’ll learn to understand your cat’s body language so you’ll know exactly what he’s trying to communicate to you.  You’ll discover exactly how to train your cat so he’ll obey you regarding issues like coming when called, not scratching the furniture, not biting, and litter box or toilet training.  And because you two will understand each other better, your cat will likely end up being far more affectionate toward you! (awwwwww…)  You may not have even realized that cats can be trained.  Well, they can, and I can assure you it’s easy when you know how.  And as a result, you’ll have a much happier, closer relationship with your cat.

This Program WORKS

And it doesn’t take weeks or months.  And you don’t have to pay some “expert” to come into your home to train your cat.  And the best thing is, you won’t have to do any yelling, scolding, or any punishment of any kind.  This training is all about you and your kitty having FUN together – and getting really FAST results!

Here’s What Others Are Saying

Cat Behavior Problems SOLVED…

“When we purchased your cat training course, we hoped all our prayers would be answered…and they have been! Our cat’s spraying all over the house, excessive meowing, running out the door, scratching the furniture and refusing to come when called are now all fixed. I hate to admit it, but my husband and I were seriously thinking of selling her because we didn’t know what else to do. Even the medication the vet recommended didn’t work. I’m so thankful we found your course.  Our cat is now such an angel and everyone tells us how “lucky” we are to have picked such a great cat.” Jill K.

Kitten SAVED From Being Returned

“We adopted our kitten, Max, a couple of months ago. Max turned out to be much more work than we bargained for!  We had just decided to take him back to the breeder when we found your cat training course online.  We began listening to the program the same day, and we’re so glad we did!  In just a few weeks our little anxious, biting, hissing kitten is now using the litter box perfectly, coming when he’s called, and even doing tricks!  He stands up on his back legs and looks like he’s dancing – it’s so cute!  Max has turned out to be such a wonderful part of our family – thanks so you!  Annie S.”

Cat Transformed Within MINUTES

Within minutes of using the cat communication you teach in your course, my cat, “Stretch,” was calm and her anxiety was gone.  We’re so close now, and I’m sure she feels as much relief as I do!  And her chewing on my computer mouse and electrical wires has stopped too.  Turns out all I needed to do was learn how to understand my cat.  Thank you so much!  Mary B.”

This Will Work for You and Your Cat

The bottom line is that this system is 100% guaranteed to work, just like it’s worked for the other 785 other cats the program has already been successfully used to train!  And every day, more and more cat lovers like you are giving it a try.

  • Have you tried to train your cat in the past with no luck?  This will work for you.
  • Are you thinking about getting a cat but you want to make sure you’ll know how to train it?  This will work for you.
  • Do you simply want to understand your cat and have a better relationship with her?  This will work for you.

This formula has been tested, used, and tweaked with over 785 cats.  It will work for your cat, your neighbor’s cat, your mom’s cat…it will work for any cat you want to train or help.

You Get Results Fast, and You Enjoy The Process

There’s no hitting, no yelling – nothing like that.  This system will show you how to make your cat want to obey, while making your relationship with her even closer. This program makes it super easy, and super enjoyable for both of you!

Your Cat Will Be So Well Behaved And Happy Your Friends Will Be Jealous! Otherwise, You’ll Get 100% Of Your Money Back And They Still Let You Keep This Entire System For FREE!

You read that right. UltimateCatSecrets.com stands behind their program 100%.  Even though you can count on seeing results on the very first day, they give you 45 days to listen to and try out the system. Then, if you aren’t completely satisfied (for any reason at all), they will give you a full refund (no questions asked), and you get to keep the entire system for free.  You either love it, or you get a refund and get to keep it free. How’s that for a guarantee?

foods that are harmful to dogs and catsMy Final Recommendation

I truly was shocked when I first came across this cat training program for a lot of reasons, but mostly because 1) it contains SO much information, 2) it contains bonus materials that are worth more than the cost of the program itself, 3) it offered a transcript of the program for those who would rather read than listen to audio – and 4) the money-back guarantee (where you get your money back but keep the whole program?!) just blew me away.  I honestly think this is an incredible deal for only $37.  I’d pay $37 all day long to solve even ONE cat behavior issue, let alone dozens!  I say go for it. You have nothing at all to lose. And please, come back and comment below to let me know how you and your kitty like the training! Debra 🙂

How to Get Your Cat to Stop Peeing on the Carpet

If you don’t want to end up spending hundreds of dollars on new carpeting because your cat has ruined it, then it’s imperative that you learn how to get your cat to stop peeing on the carpet – and fast!

Why Does My Cat Pee on the Carpet?

There are three common factors that contribute to inappropriate urination in cats: medical issues, chemical attraction, and psychological stress. That’s not to say that there couldn’t be other reasons why your cat isn’t peeing in the litterbox, but these are the three most common.  By learning about these three issues, you’ll be able to get your cat to stop peeing on the carpet before any more damage can be done!

Medical Issues

The most important thing you should consider if your cat is peeing anywhere but in the litterbox is that he might be having a medical issue.  It is imperative that you take your cat to the vet as soon as possible.

I once had a cat who never peed outside of the litter box in her then 15-year lifespan.  All of a sudden, she started peeing on the bath mat.  I took her to the vet and found out that she had a “bladder crystal” and she had to have surgery.  It was a serious medical issue, and had I ignored it, the cat would’ve eventually died from it.

A more common medical issue that causes inappropriate urination in cats is a urinary tract infection.  These are painful and terribly uncomfortable, and, as with any infection, can become very serious if left untreated. The diagnoses is simple – a simple urine test – and the treatment is simple as well – inexpensive antibiotics.  Your cat will thank you for it!

So definitely have your cat checked by the vet first if there’s a peeing problem. Only after a medical issue being the cause is eliminated should you move on to possible other reasons why the cat is peeing on the carpet.

Chemical Attraction

The next thing you should consider is whether your cat is peeing in the place where he (or another cat) has peed before.  The smell of cat urine will attract your cat to the same spot again and again.  Even if you think you cleaned the spot well, your cat can probably still smell it.

Your best bet is to remove the carpet that’s been peed on.  But if that’s not possible, you should try steam cleaning the area.  You might also try a commercial product like Nature’s Miracle to eradicate the odor completely.

 Psychological Stress

The third most common reason why cats pee on the carpet is that they are stressed.  There are lots of reasons for this – you can read about them in my article, Cat Stress Relievers – 10 Things that Stress Your Cat Out. Eliminating whatever is bothering your cat could very well solve the peeing problem.

How to Separate Fighting Cats – How to Break Up a Cat Fight

I personally think witnessing a cat fight is one of the most horrifying things you can see – and hear!  I made the mistake once of throwing down a pieHow to Separate Fighting Catsce of chicken onto my kitchen floor for my cats, not realizing they’d both lunge for it at the same time and the nastiest, meanest fight I’d ever witness would ensue.  And these were house cats – I can’t even imagine what fights between outdoor, stray, or “wild” cats must be like.  I shudder just thinking about it.  If you find yourself in this terrifying situation, try these tips on how to separate fighting cats:

Avoid hitting.

Hitting can make the situation worse and may cause the attack to be turned toward you.  Not to mention it creates even more stress and fear for the cats who are already in a terrible situation.

Don’t get your hands in the way!

Don’t get your hands anywhere near their mouths.  It’s best not to use your hands at all – your hands and arms could be torn to shreds pretty quickly with cat claws moving wildly about.  Here’s a great tip – use an UMBRELLA to separate the cats.  Open the umbrella and use it to “scoop” one of the cats away from the other.  Just managing to get the umbrella between the two may be enough to get one or both to flee. A broom may do the trick as well – hold the broom between the two cats to separate them (do NOT hit them with the broom).

Try a spray bottle, or hose.

Try spraying one or both cats with water.  If it doesn’t work, try aiming for the nostrils.  Don’t spray too much – all you need to do is get one of their faces wet to startle them out of fighting mode.

Prevent the fight from starting in the first place.

When two cats are in a frozen position, snarling and growling at each other but not yet fighting, try putting a magazine or newspaper between the two of them to block their vision of each other.  It allows an opportunity for the frightened one to run away and for you to pick up the dominant one if it’s tame. Don’t try picking up either of the cats unless and until you have done something to block their vision of each other.  Otherwise, your touching one of them might actually start the fight.

This works most times:

The fastest way to break up a cat fight is to make a loud hissing, spitting sound, followed by a glass of water splashed in one of their faces.

How to Get a Cat to Use the Litter Box – Stop Your Cat From Peeing Everywhere!

I owned cats for more than 30 years.  I’ve had very good luck with getting my cats to always use the litter box, with the exception of one whom I’ll talk about in this article.  There are several things you can do to make sure your cat is using the litter box, and also ways you can find out why they don’t want to if that’s the case.

How to Get a Cat to Use the Litter Box

When a cat won’t use the litter box – either initially (ever) or just stops using it when they’ve always used it in the past, you can bet there is a very specific reason.  Cats by nature prefer to pee in a litter box-type environment.  They want something to bury their mess in, and they generally prefer a private place to do their business.  Most cats will use the litter box.  I loved when each of my cats were kittens and I’d put them in the litter box for the first time.  Of course the first thing they do is play in it – so Stinky Kitty is how they’d spend those few days or weeks. Then they’d sometimes try to eat the litter (crunch, crunch, crunch). But I was lucky – it never took long for any cat I’ve ever had to learn to use the litter box.  “Put them in it often.”  That’s it.  That was the only thing I had to do to teach them.

But if you have not been as lucky and you need to know how to get your cat to use the litter box, I hope this article will help. If you need to stop your cat from peeing everywhere – if they won’t just instinctively use the litter box – then use these tips to figure out why.

Check for a Medical Problem

The first thing you should do if your cat has always used the litter box but now is refusing, is to have the veterinarian check to see if they’re having a medical problem.  My cat Helmet Head (yes, her name was Helmet Head…shut up!) faithfully used the litter box for about 15 years when suddenly she started peeing first on the bathroom mats, then in other places around the house as well.  I took her to the vet and it turned out she had a urinary tract infection.  And it was cute, really, how the vet described the problem.  He said, “She has a urinary tract infection and it hurts when she pees.  She doesn’t understand why.  She thinks it has something to do with the litter box!  So she’s going around the house, trying to find a place where it doesn’t  hurt to pee.”  That’s so cute to me – that the little sweetie was just trying to figure it out in her little kitty brain.  But I felt bad – turns out she was having a problem that needed attention.  The vet started her on an antibiotic, the infection cleared up, and she began using the litter box again.  So always check with your vet first thing. Urinary tract infections are fairly common in cats, as is kidney failure.  So realize it could be a serious issue that needs immediate attention. Incidentally, if you need help paying for your pet’s medical needs, read this article, Help With Vet Bills.

Make Sure the Litter Box is Clean

Other than a medical problem, the litter box being dirty is one of the most common reasons why cats will pee elsewhere.  That same cat I told you about, Helmet Head (I said shut up!) would absolutely refuse to use the litter box if it wasn’t kept clean.  She’d let me slide a little bit – it could get a few clumps in it, a few wet spots.  But if it got too bad she’d simply squat next to it and pee or poop on the floor.  She was a sweet, lady-like kitty, and she was meticulous about caring for herself, keeping her fur clean, etc.  Why would she want to step into a dirty litter box?  Remember you wouldn’t want to use a filthy bathroom – so don’t expect your cat to!  I used to keep a plastic bag and scoop next to the litter box.  I’d scoop it every day (every two days at most) and put the mess in the plastic bag.  At the end of the week I’d toss out the bag, plus throw out the old litter in the box and replace it with fresh litter. If you don’t have time for this or if cleaning the litter box just makes you wanna barf, you might try a Self cleaning litter box.

How to Get a Cat to Use the Litter BoxWhat Type of Litter Are You Using?

You may be tempted to use scented cat litter because you think it will mask the smell.  Two things:  first, it doesn’t mask the smell.  All you end up with, is, for example, lavender-scented cat piss.  Sorry to be gross, but really.  Second, many cats are sensitive to fragrance and perfumes.  The smell you think is nice may actually make them want to stay away from the litter box.  And remember cats don’t like change.  If you’ve adopted an adult cat, use the same litter he’s used to if you know what that is.  And don’t change litters all the time.  Pick a brand/type and stick with it.  I never had any problems with inexpensive, clumping, unscented litter.

How to Get a Cat to Use the Litter BoxTry a Different Litter Box

I had a really cool litter box that looked like a floor plant (pictured).  The thing sat in my dining room (that’s honestly the only place I had room in my small apartment) and no one ever even knew it was a litter box!  Fortunately for me, my cats used it without a problem.  However, some cats do not like an enclosed litter box.  They can be small, dark, smelly, and especially for larger cats, difficult to move around in.  You also have to make sure that the cat can easily step inside the litter box.  Think about things like your cat’s size, his age, whether he might have arthritis pain, etc.  The litter box should be very easy for your cat to get in and out of, and easy for him to maneuver in.  You can find an assortment of litter boxes for low prices at Amazon by clicking HERE.  If you like that floor plant litter box, you can purchase one HERE.

I had a little sweetie named Miss Abigail who I would sometimes call, “Scrapey.”  That’s because she’d get inside the litter box, pee or poop, then scrape, scrape, scrape, scrape…20 minutes later…scrape, scrape, scrape!  It was hilarious!  She was diligently trying to make absolutely, completely sure the mess was buried.  But the funny part is, it never was!  Honestly, even after all that scraping, she never actually managed to cover the mess.  Precious.

Consider the Location of the Litter Box

Think about things like whether you cat’s litter box is in the basement or on the second floor – can your kitty do stairs easily?  Or is he too tiny, too old? Arthritic?  Also think about whether the box might be “too private.”  Sometimes cat owners are trying so hard to hide the litter box that they…uh…hide the litter box – from the cat!  Also consider the distance.  Honestly, would you want to walk five miles every time you have to use the bathroom?  Make it convenient for your cat.  Also, remember if you move your litter box, your cat might keep returning to the old location.  If this happens, try moving the litter box a little at a time in the direction where you want it to end up – and let the cat get used to the change slowly.

You Might Need More Than One Litter Box

If you have more than one cat, you might need more than one litter box.  Some cats just simply won’t share.  And as we’ve talked about, some cats won’t use the litter box if it’s dirty – which is bound to be the case more often if more than one cat is using it.  Also, if you have a two-story house, you may need to have a litter box on each floor – again, depending on your cat’s age, physical condition, etc.

Conflicts Between Multiple Cats

If you have more than one cat, consider whether your cats get along.  If there’s conflict between them, that might be causing a problem because they won’t cooperate and share the litter box. Also, the introduction of a new cat can also cause inappropriate urination – both because of fighting over the litter box and due to “territory” issues. For more information, read this article, How To Stop Cats From Fighting and How to Break Up a Cat Fight.

How to Get a Cat to Use the Litter BoxFinally – Fix the Problem Quickly and Clean Up Any Messes

You don’t want your cat’s peeing outside of the litter box to become a habit, so take the above steps quickly.  If you discover your cat has urinated outside of the litter box, clean the mess up quickly and make sure you’ve eliminated the odor with a Pet Stain & Odor Remover so your cat isn’t tempted to return to the same spot again to do her business.
