PATRICIA B asked:
What to do when I have a few cats (a multiple cat household) and one cat is scared of another and then pees on my bed?
Both cats are healthy, no problems. Litter boxes, (3) are kept clean, and are in private places. This only happens when the inside/outside cat is inside . She is very dominate and bossy. Should I medicate the bossy cat or the scared cat?
We don’t recommend medicating cats as a solution. Drugs should only ever be used in times of emergency and risk to life of pet cat.
Same goes for humans; Meds (drugs) do not cure the cause only cover up the symptoms of the root cause of the problem. Drug meds cause side effects and unhealthy body.
The only exemption I can think of regarding cats, is administering flea control drops. The cat flea control drops do alas poison the cats blood, but the cat usually copes well with it (although some cats can be sleepy and drowsy after application of flea control was administered- depending on brand, cat size etc). What other choice is there if we want our cats and our homes and our own bodies free of a flea infestation..? Powders don’t work, sprays get washed away by rain, wet grass or licked off by the cat.
If your cat suffers from a bossy tyrant cat naturally she feels scared and threatened. Cat shows you her fear by doing the unthinkable, unforgivable no-no of peeing on your bed. Whenever a cat pees on your bed you know she’s telling you she’s in trouble.
Is doping her gonna help her?
Is doping the bully cat going to change her habits or the reason she’s being mean to the scared cat?
Cats are like humans and have their characters and reasons. Often they are acting spiteful out of jealousy, insecurity or feeling unloved. Or bored.
