Kieter-probleme

Hi,

My sussie het die oulikste mannetjieskat - hy is om en by so 9 jaar oud. Die probleem is dat Mr. verskriklik rondloop in die nag en in allerhande fights betrokke raak...kom dan by die huis aan met die "wonde" (het ook al vir so 3 dae verdwyn - my sussie was natuurlik in 'n toestand) My sussie het toe maar begin om hom in die aande in die huis in te bring en toe te maak in 'n vertrek (daar is ook ander katte so ons wil nou nie die hele spul straf nie!) Die ding is nou dat haar kat verskriklik "sad" is....hy sit die hele tyd en maauw...'n mens kan nie help om jammer vir hom te voel nie. Hy loop nie deur die dag rond nie - kry nie tyd nie, want hy le heel dag en slaap! Wat kan ons doen? Dit voel so wreed om hom toe te sluit in die aand.

Hi NM
If the tomcat is not castrated this may help, but keeping him in at night is probably still the best thing. It is not a punishment, but a way to prevent him getting injured or causing a nuisance. It won't hurt the other cats to keep them in as well, as long as they have a litter tray to use inside. If he sleeps all day, this is quite normal for cats as they do sleep a lot. He may become more active during the day once his routine is more settled and he is less active at night. Try to cheer him up with catnip, toys to chase and interesting treats.

Is hy reggemaak, my mannetjie is reggemaak, maar verdwyn snags ook so op jagtogte, maar ek bly op 'n plot so dis seker anders. Jong mannetjie loop nou maar eens en altyd rond ne. Ek kan jou kommer verstaan.
