Psychology and the Missing Cat

This is a pretty fascinating article about the psychology of cats who have taken off for parts unknown, and why. Before you read the entire article be sure to find the best cat sitter in town. One who will ensure that your cat won’t escape, and one who will send a full hour in your home keeping your cats company – we can’t stress how important a good cat sitter is. Your vet is a good source for the purrfect referral.

Why would a cat run away?

Most cats do not literally “run away” even if abused — if anything they would prefer to stay put because of their innate territoriality. It is more descriptive to say that a cat was lured by a squirrel, or chased off by a dog or some other frightening event, but then finds itself reluctant to leave the NEW territory out of fear, rather than say the cat intentionally ran away from its old territory.

How to keep those uninvited cats out of your garden? It’s easy!

We’ve been asked literally thousands of times for ways to humanely keep the neighbor’s cats or ferals out of flower and vegetable beds. And as you know from reading our website the number one trigger for cats peeing outside the box is the presence of cats in your yard.

We tried all kinds of battery operated gizmos to keep cats out of our rose garden and vegetable beds including the ones which shoot water when the cat comes within range. Some worked pretty well, and others failed. Some worked for awhile then they malfunctioned. We would never use toxic “pet repellents” And we certainly wouldn’t use cayenne pepper because if it gets into the cat’s eyes they could gauge their eyes out trying to rub at the burning pain.

A very astute Biodynamic gardener told us about something which has worked beautifully for us. We are avid organic gardeners and obviously we are devoted to cats, but frankly we were getting fed up with finding cat poop among the lettuces. Her suggestion sounded good, so we tried it.

It’s an old country Italian trick where you fill glass bottles with water then place them around your garden. Why does it work? The water filled bottles shimmer in the sunlight. This shimmer is something which does not exist in nature and the cat doesn’t understand it or like it, so the cat leaves right away.

We experimented with several different bottles until we decided that the pale green color of white wine bottles give the most shimmer in sunlight. Soak off the label. Fill the bottle with water and replace the cap. We think turning them upside down with the neck in the dirt looks sort of arty and whimsical!

For added shimmer and cosmic fun we’ve put a big crystal in the dimple of the bottom of some of the bottles.

We know that this remedy may sound crazy, but really, it works. It’s been 5 years now and we’ve not found a single "feline calling card" in with the roses or the vegetables. Other than the wine, it’s practically a free solution! This is the most economical, humane, and non toxic feline garden abatement we know of.

Shortly after we posted this tip we heard from a long time friend of Cat Faeries who is an Italian countess. She wrote to tell us that you see water filled wine bottles in gardens all over Italy. Many are near or under key plants. If the plants are particularly precious you might see several bottles grouped together. Thank you Contessa dearest for adding this for us!

“My cat goes outside and has started spraying in my house!”

We hear this complaint quite a lot. Allow us to explain why a cat who goes outside, even for short periods can spray inside the house:

When cats go outside they often detect the urine smells of other cats, and other animals. Therefore, to retaliate and claim the yard or garden as theirs they are likely to spray bushes, trees . . .etc. in an attempt to cover up other cat’s urine smells with their own. Once they do that the potential for this to happen inside the house goes way up. Cats do not make a distinction between in a tree or a Chippendale, it’s all the same to them. It’s all about their territory which from the cat’s viewpoint needs defending (and spraying or peeing on!)

You may never see other cats in your garden. The feral cats and some neighbor’s cats come around at nighttime when we are asleep. One telltale sign is if Kitty sprays at night. Bingo! You’ve definitely got outside cats coming at night and they are probably spraying on or around your front door or other doors, even under the windows as well as everything in the garden.

The fix for this problem:

And lastly, keep Kitty inside! Really, they don’t miss it. They’ll be healthier and ultimately happier (and so will you!)

New Cat Faeries Flower Essences for Cats formula – From Bully to Bestie

From Bully to Bestie, 1 fl oz $24.95

Calms down aggressive bullying behavior inflected on other cats in your home. Transforms both male and female bullies.

Do you have a bully cat in your house? Many of us do! The worry is now over, we’ve got the perfect formula just for your bully-cat!

Other species have bullies, just like we encounter too frequently in humans. Often we’ll have a cat who seems to take delight in tormenting all of your cats or one in particular. This could be a reaction to insecurity or jealousy, or a personality trait. The actions of a bully cat are stressful to the picked on cat and to you. It keeps the tension level in your home at an unhealthy high. It can also lead to the picked on cat to not use the litter box and that’s something we do not want!

With compassion towards the bully and an understanding of what it must feel like to have the need to bully and pick on we’ve sensitively and professionally crafted this formula. It addresses a wide variety of reasons and causes while helping the cat find his or her heart and bond with all in the family. Maybe your bully and victim won’t quite become true lovey dovey besties, but the behavior should shift and settle down so that peace is restored. The picked on cat or cats can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy their life in your loving home.

For the picked upon cat or cats, consider using our Past Abuse formula in tandem with From Bully to Bestie.

NOTE: if the bullying came on suddenly and it’s directed at an older cat please take that cat to vet for a check up. Very often healthy animals will turn on an older sick animal. It’s that ancient survival of the fittest thing which is so unnecessary in our modern times with great health care and good doctors. Sometimes the aggression against one cat is an early sign that something is wrong health wise.
