Wow, two blogs in one day? Who'd a-thunk-it? *s* Hope y'all will read the earlier Tuesday Tips, Part 1 (on writing), but meanwhile I've an update for you on the kitty behavior front. Actually, it's on OWNER'S BEHAVING BADLY, LOL!
We love our cats but still complain about their annoying behavior problems. Why do they scratch furniture and caterwaul all night when we are perfect kitty parents? The problem is that while we are worrying about their behavior issues, we might be better off focusing on our behavior instead. My latest Paw Nation article describes eight common things owners do to "hiss off" the cat.
One of those kitty complaints is being JAILED inside! Cats kept inside for their own safety sometimes attempt the great cat escape, and practice door dashing. There is a saying, that a cat is always on the wrong side of a door. Seren used to do this when younger-and then stood frozen with wide eyes, as if to say, 'Oh @#$%^! How do I get back inside?' If you have a great kitty escape artist, you'll benefit from reading 8 Tips to Stop Door-Dashing Cats for help in preventing your own cats' Houdini escapes.
By the way, Gina Misiroglu of Red Room put me in touch with the AOL people, which is one of the great ways in which she's bringing traffic to Red Room and getting attention for Red Room's authors.
