Keys to Understanding Your Quirky Kitty

Cat owners can have a lot of questions: “Should I get a second cat as a playmate?” “How can I stop my cat from scratching the furniture?” “Why doesn’t he use the litter box?”
So, in the spirit of David Letterman, I compiled this top 10 list of cat behavior tips:

1. A persistent misconception about domestic cats is that they are not social… 

2. Having multiple cats can increase problematic behaviors… 

3. Although the socialization of puppies receives a lot of attention, the same is not true of kittens… 

4. Litter boxes are often designed to please cat owners instead of cats… 

5. Cats are known for their fastidious behavior—grooming takes up a good portion of their time, second only to sleeping…

You’ll have to read the article for the remaining five!
