I find it hilarious that you state that you believe in positive training experiences yet still think that it's ok to hit your animals because 'it doesn't work for me'.

You know to be the best or even a decent trainer you should practice what you preach. If you are unable to do the training concepts you are trying to teach you should not be in position to teach/train others.

If you can't control yourself enough not to hit an animal then you can't control yourself enough to be an effective trainer.

-And I don't think someone who is unable to feel for another living creature should be a trainer.
-I don't think that someone who can't understand that those animals don't know why you are hitting them should be a trainer.
-I don't think someone who so openly defends animal abusers should be a trainer or any sort of spokesperson for pet ownership.

I think you need to really think on what you want to do. Because if you want to be a trainer you aren't the person right now that you need to be to be a trainer and you definitely aren't someone who should be telling others how to raise their animals if you are unable to grasp the positive reinforcement enough to do it with your own pets.

While attempting to avoid the current drama, I find it necessary to state what should be obvious. If your cat is urinating outside the litterbox, the first step should ALWAYS be a vet visit!

We had a client come in a couple weeks ago for her cats annual exam and during the vet's physical, discovered that he was completely and severely blocked! The owner had no idea which leads me to assume either A) he was an indoor/outdoor cat and/or B) she wasn't cleaning out the litterboxes nearly enough to catch his lack of output.

Can't believe we are this far into a cat thread and I haven't posted a maru maru gif yet.

Yup, when our cat started going outside the litter box, we took him to the vet and he had a bladder infection.

Why does this not surprise me? LOL. Has he climbed into any bowls yet (outside of the sink bowl)? He would cram his whole body into the dog food bowls to try and take a nap and whenever the water bowl was empty I'd know because he would be passed out in it.

Awwww, no! Though we don't have many bowls around.

He's currently tearing up some junk mail for me though
