Cat Mojo

  1. Cats need to hunt. Play and prey are the same thing. If your cat doesn’t hunt, he doesn’t own his space; so play with your cat in an interactive way. Take them through the process of “hunt, catch, kill, and eat” every day.
  2. Cats need to own territory. They do this by scent and visual marking. Make sure they have plenty of soft beds, blankets, scratching posts, etc. and put them in territoriality significant places such as places that smell of you.
  3. Cats see everything in 3D. It is more than just the floor for them. Having access to levels…the floor, the counter, the bar stool, the sink, etc. creates territorial security.
  4. Some cats like heights like the top of the refrigerator. Some cats like floor level safe such as under the bed or in the closet. It’s that simple.  Organize your house accordingly.
  5. Cats have a short-term attention span – less than 3 seconds. Thus, discipline isn’t viable for a cat.
