Very doleful cat, what to do?
Ok, I have 2 cats and 2 dogs, all sharing a 1200 sq foot home. There is plenty to do. The domestic has a nice open air gallery where birds are seen and bugs make their channel through providing big time entertainement for all. But for some reason my male cat is the with the sole purpose unhappy fellow, actually he is turning to be a real niggle. All he thinks about is trying to get out my door and will meow incessantly. I cannot consent to him out, there is a highway and we are in the country with coyotes and who know what .I really cannot get why he has to be so fixated with the door when he have a sister to play with, a large home, birds to view all day.
I mean this is a dream domestic. I had cats all my life and they be happy enough in a small apartment beside a window view, what makes him devise that this home is not enough. Ok, he is a big explorer, but wow, I really cannot see how I can make him happier. I also cannot concord anymore with him trying to escape out the door each time I take the dogs out.
Any planning, on how to make him appreciate all he has?
From what I can infer from your question and details, you're probably treated him horribly.
If you can pedal it without hurting him, take him in a room next to only you and no other pets and leave the door closed. At first make it undisturbed and allow him to roam and then put him on the bed or somewhere where you are able to sit near him for a while and pet him really nicely. If he leaves, turn on the television or something. He will eventually ease up to you.
Or possibly he just does not like the living conditions or the other animals. you can't help that. Shut the door on the other pets adjectives night then and let him sleep next to you for a few days and he will eventually make that his sleeping spot.
If you've ever LET him external, then he remembers what the odors, etc are like out there, and it'll be harder to hold him in. I put a bell on my "wants out" cat, so that I'd know when he was getting close.and wanting to run out..so I could prevent it!
If you can't control his wanting to run long-gone the dogs..put him in a different room, behind a closed door, before taking the dogs out. Just obtain into that "habit".and he won't be able to escape..
Hope this helps...Good luck.
Any how, I have had equal problem with many kitties within the past. I know therefore, how worrisome it may be. It can get really frustrating and yes, it did upset me too. We love these creatures so much! Try to squirt some dampen as soon as he is close to the door. It is better safe than sorry. My cat made it out one day and was run over. Please be incredibly careful..
Your cat is conspicuously desperate to go outside, but I appreciate that with starchy traffic and coyotes to worry about, that it just isn't not dangerous to allow him outside on his own. Would you consider the idea of training him to walk on a harness, so that he could spend some time external under your supervision? This link has conscientious advice on how to do this.
You don't mention if they are allowed outside onto the gallery, but if not, is there a way that you could do that? There are different types of fencing that would ensure he couldn't travel any further than the veranda.
some pets are unhappy with the living situation, i think that everytime your cat tries to bolt for the door is because he is curious of whats out near, one solution is to put him outside but put him on a leash and constantly check on him, he will just continue this behavior and in the future you might just lose him, let him explore the outdoors and maybe it will eventually blow over and not be so interested give or take a few going outside
