How to Discipline a Puppy

Tuesday Mar 20, 2007 11:20:00 AM

Cats are perfectly content to live alone or in the company of humans. We are not by nature, really sociable animals, although sometimes cats will bond with each other or even - Godess forbid - with a dog and become family. Humans however, seem to think that because lions live in prides, house cats should do the same thing.

They do not realize that lions are the exception in the cat world, not the norm.

Also, humans are social animals, so they think that their companions must be the same way. As a result, one day you may find your human gifting you with a puppy, kitten or even a small human. Here are some tips to help you deal with the problem.

If a puppy is bothering you, you should strike the puppy very hard over the nose or muzzle area with your claws extended. Drawing blood is perfectly acceptable. If the puppy is unusually persistant, you may need to combine this with a growl which means to same thing in Cat and Dog. Hissing is pointless as dogs don't hiss, so puppies aren't going to speak the language. This will usually send the puppy running back to the nearest human who will laugh and then say "Well, that's what you get of annoying the cat." It will also allow you to get back to whatever important activity you were attempting to engage in, such as eating, sleeping or grooming.

Kittens can be disciplined with just hissing and growling. An unusually stupid one might need to be struck, but as they speak Cat perfectly well by the age of 8 weeks, they generally take a subtle hint, and do not require an unnecessary waste of energy.

Humans are difficult. They only word in Cat they understand is "NO" and most of the time, they don't think that we know what it means.

You may strike a small human to discipline it, but make sure your claws are pulled when you do that, otherwise the next time you wake up you will find your paws hurt and that you have no claws left. It is not acceptable to ever scratch a small human except as a case of last resort when you have tried everything else in your power, such as batting, hissing, growling and moving to higher spot in the room. You may also wish to call the small human's behavior to the attention of the larger humans, and they will take care of the disciplining of it for you.

I hope these easy hints help you adjust to your new living style. Unfortunately, you will be stuck with it whether you want it or not, so you'll have to make the best of the situation.
