Also, double sided tape will keep any cat from scratching things. Just put it on whatever surface he is scratching.


I am not... I REPEAT... NOT covering my whole body in double sided duct tape


Might just try the vinegar though when he has stopped sulking in the garage where Rod Jr has put him

Kindest respects

Thats a battle you will never win .. Stalemate most likely ..
Never had problems from cats .. rather an affinity with them got a siamese that hates everyone except me and down by river where I fish theres a mother tiger and two cubs usually toss them a few fish ..

If you want a housecat make sure in future you get a female cat theyre far less destructive and dont mark their terrotory like male cats do ..

The pooping/marking thing is a territory issue. He's feels insecure about something and needs to mark his turf. Do you have an outdoor cat population that could be making him feel bad?

Cats also like having places they can get to high up. Galaxy always recommends installing cat shelves high up that a cat can get to so that they can sit up and survey their territory from above. The more area the cat can cover from above, the better. If you do that, you may have to spend some time training the cat to find the shelving and learning how to use it.

Also, playtime. Play with the cat with some toys to try to get out that extra energy. And if the cat doesn't like anyone but your son, then you are the ones who need to start doing it, so the cat learns that you are safe and good people to be around too.

You might also try cat treats. If you can get the cat to associate you with treats, then you also become a provider of good things rather than something to be disliked.

And I've had an assortment of cats all my life in multi-cat households, and his advice is usually pretty spot-on from what I've experienced.

Thank you Ket for all of your wise suggestions...

Problem seems to be solved actually...

Rod Jr took the cat outside yesterday and put him in the workshop (with cat flap) where our outdoor cat sleeps during the day and also one of our dogs.

After spending a night with both of them "Thing"... which is his real name... was all lovey dovey this morning and for the first time in yonks actually gave both Mrs R and myself a big cat hug before going off to have a massive poo in his gateway to hell (litter tray)...

He even asked to go back outside again...

Bloody heck, even myself, a hardened veterinary with over 25 years experience completely forgot that sometimes the hard way works...

Time for retirement at an early age methinks?

Kindest respects

My friend had a dog that was kind of like your cat. The vet suggested St. Johns Wort. I don't know if you
can give it to a cat, so ask your vet, but it worked wonders for my friends dog.

Ahhh the good old balm of warrior... great for depression...

Will keep that in mind if I see the cat trying to hang itself... but then again....
