Bad smells

Cats have an excellent sense of smell. There are some smells that cats hate such as citrus, menthol, lavender etc. You can use scents cats enjoy to attract them to locations like their scratching post. There are also smells she might really like, including catnip, and silver vine.

Tummy rubs

Most cats don’t like to be stroked on their tummies, she will (try to) depart the scene or hit you with her paw. However, a few cats love when a person pets their belly.


Interacting with strangers

Paying attention to your cat’s reactions is also important when an unfamiliar person meet her especially if that person is a child.

Leaving her alone

It is true that its easier to leave a cat for longer times than a dog. This is mainly because cats are more independent creatures. However, if she is alone for extended periods it is possible that your cat develops symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Unclean litter box

Using a dirty toilet—in public or a home—is pretty gross, right? As far as cats go, they can only cover their poop with litter as their natural instinct. It is upon you to clean the box every day.

Competition with other cats

Cats can become easily jealous and can be possessive about their carers, territory, toys and even litter box. That’s the reason your cat rubs its head on you, to mark you with its scent so that other cats know that you are taken.
