    Recently, you said that ferrel cats are not adoptable. That is wrong. With time and love, and TREATS, ferrels love having a real home with humans.

    I just wanted to understand something, I have a 18 year neutered cat that has never taken to anyone male or female since I rescued him at 6 weeks old, My husband and I have been together for 3 years and My cat (Meow-Meow) has never been a lap kitty to Brian my husband, My husband had a below the knee amputation now it’s like everything has changed, Meow-Meow has never crawled into his lap before and need less to say never even wanted any affection, but since the surgery of my husband it seems like it’s Meow-Meow mission or a must do routine to protect him, he crawls up and lays on his stump and purrs like nothing I’ve heard before, It’s so adorable and was wondering if anything like this is something you have come across before. We are in way troubled by this was just curious as to why he feel it’s his job or mission to protect and show compassion, when there was none at all before surgery. They were playmates, and I was also the one he would come to for affection.

      Not all cats are affectionate. Often they mirror you. If you make effort to gradually show them affection, they will return the favor. All 6 of mine do.

      secondly, while they may not overtly show their love, they are intelligent creatures and know something is amiss. Meow-Meow is showing sympathy.

      Sounds like you have a very special cat!

    Hi there,
    i need a little advice please concerning my cat.
    I have a 4 months old cat (Simba), i adopted it since it was 6 weeks old.
    It might not sound important, but it is to me. My cat refuses to eat anything unless someone sits and feed it using the hand! This issue appeared at 3 months old. I once kept Simba without feeding him for a whole day hoping he will get hungry and serve himself, but he refused to eat.
    What should i do to make him brake that habit? It’s important to me because sometimes i stay out for 24 hours each 4 or 5 days because of my work, and want him to eat his meals.
    Thank you!

      Nader,
      You definitely want to install a camera, like a nanny cam or pet cam,to record if your cat eats while you’re out. Leave dry food and try various types of dry food. Try that first.

      Do you travel 4 to 5 days at a time? If so, I do not recommend leaving a cat along that long. They can get into trouble. I personally hire a pet sitter. You never know when they will knock over a lamp or get caught in something.

      Good luck!

        Thank u so much Christine :)
        I noyiced that Simba eats by himself when i’m around, but refuses to eat when i’m not home (maybe he needs me around). I don’t travel, i just stay out for 12 to 14 hours, once or twice a week, so i guess that’s not a big deal :)
        I have a second issue hoping u can advice me . Simba bites a lot, and the problem is he’s not biting cz he’s angry or offensive, he purrs when he bites!! I guess this is is way of playing and saying ‘i love u’ … but soon he will get his new fangs and i don’t want him to try them on me… what sould i do?
        Thank u! :)

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.
