Caturday: I Want To Be Alone

28 Feb

Stella stretch

Another great K8 cat capture, this time of Stella yawning.  Stella is now living by herself in the cat room.  It seems she was the cause of much upsetness for the other cats and for months the zoo was out of whack.  She was beating up Noel and shredding Mini, and eventually we figured out that it was her that was peeing on our bed.  She even started fighting with Nine.  Once we gave her her own little world, everything got better for everyone.  She is very happy to be in her private space and the other cats have calmed down (a Feliway mister is helping too).  I have never seen her so happy.  Cats are such territorial animals. Though I would like to believe that multicat/animal households are fine, most cats would probably prefer their own space.  Actually, I think they are loners at heart and we make them community creatures by forcing them to exist in our world together (how human-centric of me!).  Stella is doing great now that we figured out what was bothering her: she wants to be alone!  

I want to give a shout out to Dr. Levitsky at Healing Paws, who helped us realize that the trouble was Stella and not Noel.  We thought Noel, who was getting beat up, was the cat that maybe should be by herself, but it was actually the bully, Stella, not the bullied that needed the space.

I can not imagine a life without cats!

Just another CATDogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Boy I am happy someone doesn’t take pictures of me yawning! 🙂 It is way cuter when it is a cat.

    She sure looks happy and relaxed. Good detective work to find out the problem….

    Our kitty Biene had to spend the last two years of her life alone. She was a rescue who never trusted any human or pet except our other cat Boo. When Boo suddenly passed away, Biene gave up. We dogs chased her, the other cats tried to beat her up, it was a sad, sad, thing. Finally, she got to live in the basement. It is a huge area with lots of windows, Mom put a cat tree there for her, many beds and she was as happy as she could be those last years. It always broke mom’s heart that she was so afraid of life and could never overcome whatever happened in her first ten months of life.
