No More Bad Cats - A Bored Cat Is A Bad Cat!

Updated on May 2, 2011

Did you know that One out of every four American families has a pet cat and some have more than one. However, If you don't have your very own cat to appreciate and love its eccentricities and incomparable behaviors...You should consider getting one! If you're an ailurophile (A cat lover), Visit my blog...

Facts About Cats and I'll introduce you to the interesting and likely unknown facts about cats and their behavior, lifecycle, senses, and habits.

No More Bad Cats...

I'd like to think a lot of your cat owners acknowledge that this is correct...No More Bad Cats...But for a few of you newcomer cat or kitten owners, you probably do not acknowledge about this yet. But you'll before long find out, that's sure as shooting. Being a brand-new cat owner is a fantastic and joyful experience. Simply getting your brand-new cat/kitten should make you feel that little bit of exhilaration or maybe a tingle running through your body. A brand-new member of the your family who's going to bring many years of happiness and companionship to you.

BUT It might not always be as rose-colored as that. A bored cat especially a kitten can oftentimes turn into a bad cat! Your cat is tearing through the house, getting into trouble by clawing at the furniture, tearing apart your bathroom tissue, chewing on your precious objects. I know, that my kittens use to do that stuff. We have a Russian Blue and a domesticated short hair. They were always getting into a lot of trouble the 1st couple of weeks. Now their 8 months old and are behaving all right. They seldom do the things we were upset with them for doing anymore.

Take a stab at why they are so good now. They are at present keeping themselves occupied with a couple of basic cat toys we bought at our local sales outlet, for a couple of dollars we got some little stuffed cat toys for them to chew up. Now they're not tearing up the house.

For hours they chase one another and play fight, and that's dandy while they're doing their play fighting, but they spend a lot of time now playing with their cat playthings than anything else. We collected a stick with a toy hanging off a string...They go crazy playing with that thing for hours. When we're fed up of playing with them with the stick toy, I tie it to a chair and they still keep playing with it. I still haven't decided if I want them to have catnip...Any readers using catnip? Drop a comment and tell me how your making out.


Just about all of the time they'll keep out of trouble, it's hardly a problem any longer. Now it might not occur to you and your pet. But why not give it a whirl. Keeping your cat engaged with simple little things like cheap toys can save you a lot of grief. Just for a couple of bucks at your local pet store or retail store is all that's required.

I listed a few of my favorites you can get from Amazon in this Hub. We had a empty cardboard box, they spend a lot of time in there too. You will even get a couple of minutes of laughter just watching your cat play with a empty box.

If you're going through a tuff day, just watching your cat fooling around with their toys will relieve some stress from the day's events. Savor your pet, and always remember, a bored cat is a bad cat. Keep them occupied and you will have No More Bad Cats!

      Great information! I really enjoy your hubs and so glad I found you. My kitties just love playing with small plastic balls that have bells or jingles inside, they run all over the place playing soccer with those balls. And the 'cat dancer.' That's what we call the stick with fuzzy drives them nuts. So, you are helping new and 'old' cat lovers learn even more and better ways to care for and enjoy their beautiful feline friends. Thank you!!
