Cats love playing, chasing things, climbing, sharpening claws, and getting plenty of attention. But, what happens when they cannot express these natural behaviors fully? Well, you get a bored and disruptive pet.
Discipline Your Cat
An effective discipline means consistency. React the same way each time if you want to stop certain cat bad behaviors. This way, your pet will somehow get the message and will not be confused. One way to discipline is to give a reward to good behavior and no reward for negative behavior.
Rewards include playing with your cat and giving it some treats. Non-rewards involve giving them the cold treatment; not treats and no games. Repetition would make the cat want the positive reaction from you, and try to avoid getting a negative reaction.
Stop These Bad Cat Behaviors
The bad behavior of cats come in various forms, ranging from minor issues to naughtiness, to more serious ones.
When your cat does not bite, give some treats and play with it. Eventually, your pet will stop biting as it recognizes your positive reaction to your negative reaction when it is biting.
The way to discipline your cat is to think like them and not more as a human. Keep in mind that you love your cat. Hence the pet should not fear you as you discipline it.
