Hi again!

I keep reading that Bengals have delicate stomachs. Ours don't, they will eat onions, peppers, cake, beans, rhubarb, porridge oats, basically anything you forget and leave lying around. However, they also like to eat window sealant. They are currently scratching it out of our double glazing and devouring huge quantities. APart from the fact that they have some nice Purina ProPlan to eat and the fact that this is wrecking our house, it's also really bad for them because we are worried it may get wrappped around their intestines. We've told them off. Now they have realised we don't like to see them doing it. So they just wait until we're not around - problem solved. For them!

Any ideas?

Hi

What about smearing mustard of some other hot, spicy sauce on your window sealant or something (non toxic) you know they will turn their noses up at.

Cats aren't supposed to like lemon or other citrus fruits, maybe spray some lemon juice. Once they have a bad experience, they should stop. I would leave the substance there for a while in case they forget, then rub it off.

Just a suggestion.

Hi there,
I just read this and I think my 2 kittens are heading that way :-), well I think the girl is... She likes to chew off door sealant to keep draughts out...

They tend to do that in one place though, i.e. not all doors... The best thing I found for stopping my wee one to scratch the hell out of my carpet is SSSCat which I purchased from this shop:

http://www.seapets.co.uk/product-detail ... 22001.html

It's a spray with a sensor and a beep. When the cat goes near it, it beeps first, if it goes nearer, it will spray which will chase the cat away. This is pretty cool and I don't have to get up at 6am every morning now to tell my girl to stop scratching. The spray does it and she runs away.

It's expensive, but it works!

I think it must be something to do with silicone ours destroyed 3 phone chargers last week alone, another favorite is cardboard boxes a large 2 foot square box lasts about a week i don't mind this so much as these are free a phone charges are costing me £15 each!!! its so funny to watch 4 cats get in a box and turn in to complete lunatics they go absolutely nuts and one is now 7 week pregnant not like she act's it.The other thing that drives them mad is the kids raddit they look at her in that FOOD way!!!

It's not boxes in our house it's a cat house (pop up material box) we got free with one of the kittens, you put it up and they have collapsed it within 30 seconds, usually with one of them in it, will try and get some footage of them it's very amusing!
