Cat Behavior Training
Is there such a thing as cat behavior training?
first place to start your cat behavior training is right
under your cat's tail. Here is how you can have a more
cooperative and affectionate cat. Cat owners most often
seek help for these top 3 behavior problems:
Get a head start at the rear end of your cat
Feline neutering and spaying is also the
most frequently overlooked solution to the biggest cat behavior
Cat's that have been neutered or spayed tend to be less aggressive,

When cats are neutered or spayed they are less likely to spray
urine inside and outside of the house. The source of the hormones
that drive this urge to spray are eliminated through the spay or
Roaming outdoor cats are much more exposed to fights and
injuries, as well as infectious diseases. Altered (neutered) cats have

between eight and fourteen weeks of age. This also prevents any bad
hormonal driven activity like roaming, spraying and howling from
