Put the Cat Spray Bottle in the Trash!

Cat Chat — Brought to You by Dr. Elsey’s (06-15-2022) #0096: Tracie agrees with Zazie Todd whose book “PURR: The Science of Making Your Cat Happy” explains why using aversive techniques to control a cat’s behavior will backfire on you. They discuss the problems with negative actions towards your cat like spraying your kitty with water, shaking a can of pennies, or even clapping your hands or yelling to startle a cat — all of which do nothing except create bad feelings towards you — the “attacker.”
