Keeping a cat is not always easy and requires patience, but it also gives a lot of pleasure. Unfortunately, when it comes to keeping cats you can do a lot wrong. Here are 5 mistakes in dealing with a velvet paw, which you should refrain for the benefit of the human-cat relationship better.
There are a few "educative measures" that you can be sure will hurt the relationship between you and your fur nose. Cats are sensitive animals that can suffer from these parental errors.
1. Violence is NEVER a solution
Violence is always the wrong way to deal with animals. No matter how agitated your cat is, strikes, kicks and other physical sanctions are the worst thing you can do to your pet. Those who become violent to their cat (or other animals), if only in affect, are guaranteed to harm the relationship sustainably.
2. Screaming hurts your cat
Cats are as powerful as they are sensitive. Their hearing is much finer than that of a human being. Therefore, you should never shout at your girl, as this can be very painful and irritating. For your cat, the screaming of physical violence equals.
3. Coercion is the wrong way
You should never force a cat to anything. For example, if your velvet paw does not want to cuddle, you should accept this and leave her alone. Coercion and pressure hurt the relationship and do not lead to the goal. The exception to this is medical emergencies - if your cat is ill and needs to go to the vet, you should take her there, even if she does not want to.
4. Subsequent scolding brings nothing
You come home, enter the living room and your cat has scratched the curtain or overturned your favorite vase? This happens and is undoubtedly annoying. Subsequent ranting, however, brings nothing. If you reprimand your cat, you are unlikely to associate this with your deed, but only senses that you are angry and unsure.
5. Impatience does not pay
Always be patient when it comes to cat ownership. Even velvet paws are not always in a good mood and follow instructions or education on some days only reluctantly. Loving patience is always the better way for cat husbandry and education.
