Cat likes glass

Tags : 

Dear Mindy,

“My cat often goes up onto her hind legs and scratches at glass doors, windows and mirrors. I’m not sure what this means? I’ve opened the door for her to go out, but she doesn’t want to.
I have 2 cats and one of them does it all the time and yet the other one never does it.”

The key to this problem is can the cat see its reflection in each surface? If yes then it could be because she can see herself. Like  a budgie with a mirror she does not know it is her and thinks it is another cat. To see if this is the problem you can put some cardboard over the glass and see what she does.

If she simply goes and finds another vertical surface to stretch on does she have a scratching pole that she can scratch at full extension? It is a general rule with cat scratching poles that it must be taller than them at full extension and somewhere on the scratching pole enable them to do so.

Can you train your cat to use the toilet?

Tags : 

Dear Misty,

Can you train your cat to use the toilet?

Yes you can! Its actually quite easy!

There is a toilet training system you can purchase called the litter Kwitter that is an insert system for your toilet.

You begin by placing its usual litter tray in the bathroom till it gets used to the fact that this is its new toileting area. Using the 1st step tray which sits underneath your toilet seat and you fill this insert with a light layer of kitty litter – ensure you show the cat this. Once the cat gets the hang of this you can then move on to the next stage which is another insert with a hole in the middle. As your cat adjusts the hole gets smaller and smaller until you can remove the tray all together.

The product can be found at:

You can watch the below video for a demonstration:
