Ive actually called animal control myself in the middle of consults. If I think it's an unsafe environment, it's game over. My job is to speak for the cats, not protect anyone's investment.

not all cats for sure. They're like furry snowflakes; no two are alike.

That said, your cat is just very social. Some people/cats/dogs/seahorses. etc just want company during dinner

Yes! Do feed and water, but have a bigger plan..Have you heard of TNR? Trap-Neuter-Return is totally the way to go. We can help solve the problem - millions of "community cats" are breeding and with TNR we can stop the growth and make their lives more bearable. Go to www.alleycatallies for more info

PLAY

EVERY DAY

Like their wellbeing depends on it. Mimic the hunt. Be a bird, be a moth, be a mouse.. with toys, of course! Speak to "THE RAW CAT" and they will thank you.

It disgusts me that a landlord would require mutilation in order for you to live there. Hopefully soon, with enough of us being very vocal about this issue, we can change it. For more info on what you can do contact www.pawproject.org Also, ask your landlord if soft paws, acrylic nail caps, are an acceptable compromise. You can appeal to their sense of compassion to ask for a middle ground.

Yes and no... Yes, it was the first time that I discovered that it worked universally as I tried to calm a roomful of hysterical cats in the shelter I worked at in the middle of the night during a raging storm.

No, because my "remote mentor" was Anitra Frazier, author of The New Natural Cat. That book opened my eyes///so to speak ;-)

I've gotten close.

...and thank you!

1) My approach to play is inclusive to food. HUNT-->CATCH-->KILL-->EAT! imitate prey and then end play with a meal. Which brings me to.. 2) Feed grain-free wet or raw food. Cats are obligate carnivores and their bodies will process that more efficiently. 3) don't free-feed. Meals only 4) treats are for reward, not because your cat's face is adorable.

I have a tiny pink panther on my left arm that I got in a guy's basement in Lincoln Nebraska back in 1989. Just to see if it hurt. It did. I apparently liked it.
