Cats + Behavior

  • Behavior Counseling - Senior Pet Behavior Problems

    No es raro que aparezcan problemas de comportamiento en los animales de más edad. Muchas de las causas son las mismas que podemos encontrar en los animales jóvenes, ya que los cambios en la casa o en el ambiente pueden producir problemas a cualquier edad.

  • Cats are very attached to their home territory, and most of our pet cats live a very sheltered life with a very predictable routine that does not involve travelling away from home. For most cats, a visit to the veterinarian is an overwhelming experience.

  • Socialization is the process during which the kitten develops relationships with other living beings in its environment.

  • Summer is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy nature and the warm sunshine, especially with your pet. Pets are inquisitive creatures and love to investigate their surroundings. Unfortunately, this trait can lead pets down the path of injury and illness. The following information will help you to avoid many summer dangers that can affect your pet.

  • Some folks argue that no cat can be taught or trained to do anything she doesn’t want to do! On the contrary: Cats are so smart it’s almost scary.

  • In order to ensure that there are no injuries and that all introductions are positive, a desensitization and counterconditioning program is the best way to ease or re-introduce a cat into a household.

  • Punishment is the application of a stimulus that decreases the chance that a behavior will be repeated. It must coincide with the undesirable behavior, and must be unpleasant enough to deter the cat from repeating that behavior.

  • Considerations When Getting a Second Cat

    Me gustaría tener un gato, pero alguien me ha dicho que debería coger dos, ¿es verdad? Los gatos se consideran tradicionalmente criaturas solitarias, pero a pesar de que es cierto que en su conducta manifiestan aspectos de independencia, se sabe que en realidad son animales sociales que disfrutan de la interacción con individuos de su misma o de otra especie.

  • Punishment is the application of a stimulus that decreases the chance that a behavior will be repeated. It must be timed to coincide with the undesirable behavior, and must be unpleasant enough to deter the dog from repeating the behavior.

  • The best way to train your pet is through the proper use of positive reinforcement and rewards while simultaneously avoiding punishment. The goal of training is to "learn" the proper task and/or behavior.
