Hi guys! So, got two cats, Male Doug and Female Tilly, Doug is amazingly calm and self assured, fought to get outside as soon as he possibly can and isn't afraid of anything! Tilly on the other hand is nuts, she runs all over the place and hates being handled or confined but is a lovely, playful cat for the most part. Her background was a bit sketchy, we bought her from a petshop originally thinking she was a male (They obviously didn't check very well!), they told us that she had been brought in with a litter of kittens in a plastic bag... Shockingly enough. I think it is this that has shaped her behaviour. Anyway, her behaviour is generally playful and boisterous and she engages well with Doug but she has some real problems with things as per below. My girlfirend took her to the Vet in a carry box (mesh front so she could see out). She screamed the whole way there and pooed and weed all over the box, was shaking and generally a in a right state, she then lunged at the vet and bit him quite badly on the arm when he tried to handle her and then pooed and weed all the way home. It was a mess and my poor girlfriend was upset and covered in poo and wee! As well as this, she is terrified of going outside, I have tried to take her out and sit with her but she howls to get back inside and eventually jumps at the door like crazy! Only the sight of Doug will calm her down for a bit but she soon runs and hides under a car or howls at the door to get in again. As for picking her up, she'll let out a wail each time you pick her up but will relax for about 30 seconds and let you stroke her before panicking and lashing out to get away, if you try and hold on for much longer she'll scream and cause some painful wounds! We have to take both Cats to the cattery soon and I need some tips of trying to relax Tilly and maybe get her more comfortable with being in a box or going outside. Cheers!
