I am so sick and tired of my cat scratching on the door in the middle of the night. I want to pick him up by the tail and sling him off the porch as far as I can throw him (I won't do it, I just want to). I feed him every day and he doesn't eat. Instead he waits until after dark and watches a raccoon eat his food, then begs for more. The noise of his claws scraping along the front door is worse then nails on a chalkboard and it's coupled with urgent screaching sounds coming from his mouth. It makes me cringe. I sware I'm never getting another cat after this one is gone. I'd get rid of him if I hadn't spent over $1000 on him already in vet bills.(Boy was I stupid!)

I don't live in town and i think it's filthy to have animals inside, especially with a little one. I think it's obvious I love him anyway or i wouldn't have spent so much money on him. <3 I'm not mad at him any more today.:P

It's true. We do some pretty stupid things sometimes when we love something. It was either help him or have him put down...had to help him.

Maybe he's afraid. If you don't live in town, then he is probably hearing coyotes and strange noises. They are really bad right now. Put him a house by the door where he can curl up and hide and it belongs to him. It will make him feel safer.

Thanks Maybe. I don't think he's afraid, but he has a really nice house on our porch in case he gets cold or scared. He sleeps in it every night. He's never lived inside. He was a barn cat when i brought him home and he really hates being inside. He would tear the house apart to get out. No, I think he was just trying to let me know his bowl was empty. The coon cleans it up every night as he sits there watching. I gave him more food last night and he got quiet just because his bowl wasn't empty anymore. I need to trap the coon and take him to the wildlife reserve. Some of my neighbors won't be so nice if they catch him creeping around their houses. He's really pretty and I love watching him but rabbi season is coming and it's getting expensive to feed him.

Actually, it's good for little kids to be around pet hair and dander, even dirt! Helps build immunity and decreases allergies. Too many kids any more are locked up in the house all the time. A little dirt is a good thing!

I agree with you on all of that. Every home I've ever been in that houses a cat smells like a litter box though. There's no way to completely get rid of the smell. That can't be good for anyone.

True. Having an indoor cat does require daily cleaning of the litter bix, not a desirable task.

If you let your cat out even in town and conctete is being poured or finished this guy will shoot him even in your yard. He uses 22 shorts silenced and kills cats all over town.
