View Full Version : Cats & Revenge?

My cat won't let my elderly mom eat in peace. He's all over her and
her table whenever I feed her. Last time he knocked her dinner on the
floor. I picked him up and carried him into the bathroom, and closed
the door until she had her dinner. He wasn't pleased about that, and
tried to wiggle free. When I went to let him out I saw he had left me
a "present" on the bath rug. I'm sure he could have held it until he
could use the litter box in a short while.

Do you think he did this because he was ****ed--actually that wasn't
what he left, but close enough...LOL! Do cats get revenge? I feel like
getting ****ed back, and putting his food bowl where he can't find
it...the little sh*t!!!

Yeah, he's ****ed off; I'm certain of it. He did that deliberately to
let you know he's ****ed off. Don't know how long your mother has been
staying with you, but apparently your cat sees her as an intruder, or at
least some sort of unwelcome presence in his home environment.

All I can suggest is that Mom and Cat need to find a way to warm up to
each other. Either that, or Cat needs to have a place in the home that's
all his own, where he can go and know Mom won't bother him.

I've seen this type of behavior before. Cats do this when they're mad at
you. I once had a cat that did that. The vet said he was angry because I
moved him to a new place, and there was nowhere in the home that was all
his. So I put him in an empty bedroom each night with food, water and
litter, and shut the door. By the end of the week he understood that was
his private little spot, and would just go in there of his own accord
from then on.

I don't understand. What is the problem? He should be allowed to do
whatever he wishes...

That was WRONG. You have NO RIGHT to force your anger onto a helpless
cat. He should always be allowed to come and go freely and at his
leisure. Who are YOU to judge him? You're no better than he just
because you're a homos apian. This is where all man's troubles began.
At the moment that he placed himself over other things NO LESS EQUAL
or deserving than was he them.

You presume much. And much comes from your own guilt. He probably
needed to go really bad but he could not. You should also be convicted
of false imprisonment at bare minimum.

If you do, beware PETA. They will personally camp outside your home,
bringing full attention to you, the doer of wrongful animal deeds, to
one and all. They will have you on the 6:00 news as a harmer of
innocent and helpless cats. One who refused their rightful attempts at
not being told what to do. You have NO RIGHT to tell them what to do
or what to eat or who's dinner they can and cannot tip over. Animals
can do as they please. And one day, they'll be nothing that you or
anyone else will be able to do about it but WATCH.

We used to have a big black foster cat named Felix. Twenty two pounds.
He was mostly a sweetheart, but hated going out to the weekend
adopt-a-thons. He would literally turn his back to the people and
sulk.

After one such episode he apparently had had enough. He came home and
****ed into the vents on my computer case, frying the mother board.

What on earth do you mean he is all over your mother when you feed
her. It sounds like you are treating your elderly mother like an
animal. Why arent you and your mother dining together? It is a real
insult in the German language to say you feed someone. Animals get
fed. and babies. I detect hostility in your attitude towards your
mother and you are blaming your cat of being hostile. Ha. look in
the mirror if you want to see hostility.

Thereafter, we asked prospective adopters to see him at home.
Eventually, we got an inquiry from a young guy who wanted a really big
cat. He came and they seemed to hit it off, so he adopted Felix. I
warned him that Felix might be ****y and sullen for a while in new
surroundings so he should be patient.

I called a week later to see how it was going. He took Felix home, let
him out of the carrier, and sat down to fix himself a sandwich. Felix
jumped up on the table and demanded half the sandwich. Seems like all
he really wanted was a place of his own.

Really sweet story. I'm so glad you found him a great home, he sounds
like quite a character!

Sounds like you're the hostile one. Maybe his/her mother is an invalid
and he/she needs to prepare her food and even help her eat it. You
don't know that he/she isn't eating with his/her mom. Besides, he/she
probably isn't German so why are the idiosyncracies of the German
language relevant here? I think you read way too much into the
question.
