Here is a list of the top 10 “no no’s” for cat lovers. If you don’t want your fur-baby to resent, hate or fear you .. these are the behaviors you should refrain from:
Cats are extremely sensitive to sound, with a hearing range that extends both above and below the frequency range that humans can detect. They can hear better than most humans and dogs. The ear is both a hearing and a balance organ. The raised voice makes the cat scarier than you think. Cat ears are particularly sensitive to loud noises. This entails yelling at them and amplifying their voices significantly.
2. Ignoring pain
Cats are masters at concealing the majority of their discomfort, so they don't cry out in pain, but they do communicate in a very subtle way. There is a chance that your cat's condition will worsen if he turns his eyes away when he repeatedly chews the painful area in his stomach or scratches his ears badly and does nothing or cats might not like you very much. Monitoring your cat's health requires you to act as a pain detector, so you'll always know what's wrong with your cat, even if they don't speak it out.
3. Leaving the lights off
Cats are used to some activities when we are at home during the day. After a while, they associate noise and activity with work, such as turning on the television, listening to music, or leave the lights on. When you leave the cat with lights off, everything is in the dark and become quiet, and your cat may begin to feel abandoned.
4. Leave the litter box dirty
If the box isn't clean, they may keep it, which is where the problem arises. Long excrement is bad for your cat's kidney and bladder health. It has the potential to cause urinary tract infections, bladder infections, and even kidney problems. Because UTIs in cats are frequently asymptomatic, cats may be ill for a long time before receiving treatment.
These hostile behaviors such as jiggling the cat in your arms, pick them up when they are not in the mood of being held, ruffling her fur while they’re sleeping, pulling the cat's tail (or allowing your children to do it) blows its face, may cause confusion and irritation to your cat. One of the few needs that cats have is to feel safe and secure at home. Excited cats that feel unsafe at home are more likely to run away at the first chance in search of a new home.
6. Skipping the small stuff
Allowing your cat to experience the discomfort of hairballs or grooming your cats only on rare occasions are the worst. Because their claws are not trimmed frequently, they will end up gripping them on every rug and carpet. They are constantly scratching their ears, shaking their heads or not checking for mites, ignoring her chewing problems, even their gum or tooth trouble may arise or worse. All of these minor details add up and can have a significant impact.
Shouting "bad cat," throwing or swatting your cat, or scolding them for not using the litter box will irritate you, but they will have no idea why. Anger does not teach your cat to "behave," but rather increases your cat's fear of you. Punishment is the least desirable tool for changing behavior, as improperly applied penalties can cause fear, anxiety, and owner avoidance. Remember that you punish their behavior, not the cat. Do not consider punishment unless your pet has the means to meet his or her needs with nature.
Providing your cat neither attention, conversation, affection, interaction, nor playtime can lead to depression. Many people believe that cats are not social animals, but this is not accurate. Cats benefit from human affection and interaction. Some cats are naturally affectionate, whereas others are wary of being held and petted. If you have a nervous cat, allow yourself to be pampered by your cat and reciprocate in kindness. Your gentle attention and small affectionate gestures will nourish your cat's soul and inspire her devotion to you.
9. Not filling or cleaning the water dish
Imagine you don't change your bowl or don't wash your glass of water for weeks, you will know their feeling right away. Not just only cats but all the pets you want to raise. They will sit still and it can lead to cat's health problems due to the “bad” bacteria that can grow in it.
Hitting, kicking, and physically harming cats can be inhumane and morally wrong, with "light taps" leading to heavy blows that instill cat dread. It harmed the cat's soul and heart in the process. Physical lessons if they get naughty only teach them how to be afraid of you, not to improve their behaviors. As previously stated, cats who feel unsafe at home are more likely to flee at the first opportunity to find a new home.
