10 Common Things Cat Owners Do Which Can Literally Break a Cat’s Spirit and Its Heart

Here is a great list of the top 10 definite “no no’s” for cat lovers. If you don’t want your fur-baby to resent, hate or fear you,… These are the very behaviors you should refrain from:

1. Shouting.

Raised voices can easily terrify your cat more than you think they do. Feline ears are extra sensitive to loud noises. This means that your yelling is amplified to extreme levels for them

2. Ignoring Pain.

Looking away and not doing something to help when your kitty repeatedly chews at a sore spot on her belly or maybe furiously scratches at her ears. Cats are masters hiding most of their discomfort, whether an infected tooth makes eating difficult or a urinary tract infection means litter box visits are nothing but agony. Monitoring your cat’s well-being all the time means being a pain detective so you know what ails your cat at all times, even if she can’t tell you directly.

3. Leaving the Lights Off.

When left alone in a silent home when darkness falls, your cat will feel abandoned and alone.

4. Not Cleaning the Litter Box.

How would you feel if the people who live with in your home never flushed the toilet? Probably like you yourself actually belong in the toilet bowl, no?

5. Teasing.

Some examples of this include pulling on your cat’s tail (or letting your kids do so), blowing in her face, ruffling her fur while she’s is trying to sleep, picking her up if she dislikes being handled, jiggling her in your arms-such antagonizing behavior confuses and also depresses your cat, who wants to love you. We should also add that teasing your fur-baby with food, just not a cool thing to do!
