Daisy and Peaches: A Tale of Two Kitties…And Stress-Related Litterbox Issues!

I'd like you to meet Daisy and Peaches, two of my clients who were introduced to me by their guardian, Dorothy. Dorothy originally contacted me because both of these kitties were pooping and peeing outside of their litterboxes. However, after talking with Dorothy about these cats' history, behavior, and interactions, I decided there was more going on here than just a case of the litterbox blues. We had a relationship problem and a stress-related litterbox issue on our hands!

Cat Introductions 101: It’s All About Patience!

Recently, a friend of mine asked me about getting a new cat and how difficult it would be to integrate it into her family that has an existing kitty. A lot of people expect cat introductions to be "difficult" - after all, cats tend to be solitary creatures, possessive of their territory and resources, right? Not always! Think about it - feral cats often live in colonies, in a combined effort to exploit food resources, protect their members, and even communally raise kittens. So shouldn't our domestic kitties be able to get along together, living in peace within a family? Yes! They can, and they do.
