      Cat is demonstrating displeasure, and needs a place of it’s own, where there’s a box where the dog will not interfere. Keep the box very clean, change at least daily. (doesn’t need more that a cup of litter there) Kitty probably also needs to feel it has a special place, where it can be part of household goings on, but out of reach of the dog. Then it will share other spaces in an acceptable manner. Insure there are no medical issues with the cat that may cause such demonstrations.

    I think I have found someone who can help me. I don’t get cable, but I can see your show on Netflix. I had to put 2 of my furbabies down in the past 2 years. They were 16 and 17 years old and they were very affectionate and loving to me. I do have another cat that I rescued from my backyard, which is a feral cat and pretty damaged. It has taken her many years to be social and affectionate in her own way, which I call the 30 second loves. Anyway, I adopted a 6 wk old kitten from ASPCA here, and he was already fixed, tattoed and cleaned up. He was considered a “lemon” because he was adopted but returned in a day or two because he was a gift and the person didn’t want this gift. I loved the “little guy” which is his name…and he is 8 months old now. He has taught my feral baby to be a cat, and how to play (she never played before at all) and turned very very affectionate to me, altho its still 30 second loves ( only can hold her 30 sec, kisses and head butts 30 seconds, then a dark look comes over her and she scratches and bites, or trys to). Anyway, Little Guy was doing well, adjusted well, wasn’t too affectionate, ran around here like the Prince of the castle. My adult daughter and her fiancé are living here also, and she has a cat of her own, but stays in her room and doesn’t really interact with anyone. I noticed that Little Guy would jump on my daughter’s lap, purr, and drool…always in her room, jumps on her bed and lets them hold him. He clearly loves them very much, but has nothing to do with me. I try to hold him, he growls and hisses, doesn’t ever jump on me or my bed. He has his perch, and sits and waits for her to come home or open her door. I play with him, feed him, but he doesn’t give me the right time of day. I haven’t done anything to hurt him, I don’t yell at him. I have been very upset and told my daughter that when she moves out, which she is in 6 months, if things don’t change she can take him with her. I have never had an animal not like me…and I am very upset about his lack of affection, altho I am accepting it, and I don’t force holding him or chasing him. Once in a while, he lays down by my feet, doesn’t let me scratch his belly. Am I correct in how I feel about this situation.

    Hey, I’m so glad I found you. We just lost our kitten to HCM. I was with it when he passed. I’m so heart broken and now I have to tell my 11 year old and 6 year old. It’s going to crush my 6 year old. We just this past Sept. lost my dad to cancer and now her kitten. Any advice?

    Hello Jackson. urgent need your help, you’re our only hope, we do not know who else to do. We had adopted 2 cats a same litter Nana and Pepe. recently the cat died and Jack was left alone, so we adopted another cat but cat not takes her well with her, it becomes aggressive, and Lula new cat is rather reclusive and shy. We do not know to do so they become accustomed without having risk of that will hurt. Help us please, we need you.

    My grandson has a 6 or so year old female spayed cat. She is deaf. He has lived in about six different places with her and each move has been an adjustment. Now he has moved in with his girlfriend and hopes to make that a permanent situation. She has two chihuahuas and “Sassy” is not happy with them as roommates. The dogs are used to sleeping with her, Sassy sleeps with him. Needless to say, that isn’t working. She either howls all night, or terrorizes the dogs and causes them to bark. They haven’t slept in weeks. Is there any help for them? Suggestions? Thank you

    Hi Jackson,
    I thoroughly enjoy your Animal Planet series. I just watched the video on Netflix “The Paw Project”. I have known between 35 and 40 cats in my life at one time blessed with 15. I however do not recommend anyone to have more than four unless they have the space and time needed for that many cats.

    All this being said I want to address the issue of cat declawing. I am firmly and totally against it. I also feel the movement to ban the cruelty of declawing should be supported and encouraged. I can only see a need for limited use of it when and where the cat’s overall healthy and well-being is in jeopardy. Such as in a case I personally know of where my friend had a polydactal cat whose extra digits were causing infections and the vet suggested that as the remedy. It made sense at the time but I have no way of knowing if some alternate treatment could have been better.

    However while it may yet be years before declawing is unacceptable in the US I believe it should be mandatory for vets to fully explain the procedure and its ramifications to anyone considering it. It should also be required for the owners to view something like “The Paw Project” before being allowed to choose such a procedure. I firmly believe that the greater majority of such cruelty is done out of ignorance of the cost to their pet. This alone should reduce such procedures and help to ban them altogether.

    Sincerely,
    Mary B

We regret that Jackson does not answer questions posted in the comments. This is due to his demanding schedule and the high volume of requests he receives. But most importantly, since he has not met your cat, it would be contrary to his approach for him to give specific personalized advice for your specific situation. That being said, general questions and issues are addressed throughout this blog, in his book Cat Daddy and of course, the show My Cat From Hell.
