It's available on Amazon!!

I think everyone reaches a point when they just feel like they have had enough, you simply tossed him into another room where it was okay for him to throw up. You didn't throw him up against a wall, smack/hit him or try to hurt him on purpose you wanted him out of the room and if he wasn't getting out himself it was kind of like an instinct to toss him into the other room. I don't see it hurting him at all and I am sure he landed on his feet just fine, you'd be surprised the height cats can fall from and be perfectly fine.

How are they toy wise? Maybe you could buy one or two of those interactive cat toys, like this or this to help keep them more engaged with each other and with a toy so they don't feel so needy?

Some suggestions:

>He can get a bit hyper, but when he does we try to redirect it or reduce the stimulation.

That actually might be hurting more than helping. He's a year old. He's going to get Hyper. And you shouldn't try to reduce hyperness, just redirect it to appropriate outlets. Don't reduce stimulation, cat's need stimulation, or they get bored, and misbehave. Play with him a lot during the afternoon. Like get a wand toy or a laser pointer and get him to the point he's out of breath, if you can. Drain him of energy as much as possible during the day and it might help during the night. If he has pent up energy or frustration, it's going to come out. If you are constantly causing him to snuff out any energy-expending behaviors during the day, well... he might be dealing with that by letting it out when you aren't able to suppress it as effectively.

> He also only does this if we are both sleeping or trying to sleep.

What is the non-sleeping person doing when the other is sleeping? If the non-sleeping person is giving the cat attention, like playing or petting the kitty, it might be that the cat is just attention-seeking. If the non-sleeping person would scold/remove/react to misbehavior, it might just be that the cat knows he can't do anything without being stopped or punished, and is waiting for when you are both more "vulnerable."

>I swear half the place is taken up by his things, so its not for lack of things to do.

Consider the type of toys - not just the amount. Some toys are inherently better for self-play than others. This ball track was a savoir to me when my kitten was young. And consider strategically placing toys in places the interrupt the pathway to your bed and it's sleeping occupants. I would literally place the track in the doorway of the bedroom so if he was on his way to bother me, he'd get distracted and play with it instead. You can also attempt rotating toys, so they have a "new" appeal to them. Like, keep some toys away and replace them every week or so. Some toys might only come out at night, so he can't get bored of them during the day... things like that.

> We don't smack him if we can help it,

Good - you really shouldn't. Smacking your cat at any time for his behavoir sets a precedent that (1) smacking is fair-game and (2) you are the enemy (they learn to fear you). Not good things! If he is wrestling with your foot in bed, and you smack him for it, there's a good chance he'll get in the mindset of "i'll show that human" and get more agressive back. And what's especially bad is that to cats, there wasn't "warning" before you got physical, that said "this play is inappropriate." Cat's will flick their tails, move their ears, and make sounds (some of which humans can't even hear) to tell other cats they're being too rough... and finally hiss.... before they lay on the retaliating smackdown. Going straight to the hit can make the cat confused, feel like you are unpredictable, or that modulation of behavior isn't practiced in the social setting you're establishing. Though, with such agressive behavior, you can try doing something.... a good hiss would be a good escalation. So, if your cat bites at your arm/leg/whatever, bolt forward fast and give your most intimidating hiss at the cat. Speak the cat lingo of "I'm really effing pissed at you." Make a loud smack with your hand on the bed if you want to (for extra display of intimidation). If the cat rolls over (showing a belly is a sign of submission), lay back down. But keep your eye on your cat for a bit (eye contact is a sign of distrust, breaking eye contact your cat may take a sign you are vulnerable). If the cat doesn't properly react, or repeats the behavoir a second time, then grab it by the scruff. Once kitty is secure, blow in it's face (most cats hate that - but it's not something they can "do back"), and lock him in a bathroom or something. Return to bed. Ignore any protest signs (hell, put some earplugs in), and go to sleep. By locking him out, you've removed the opportunity for him to be in bed with you - which is good. He should see it's a privlage that is removed when he misbehaves.

> Currently we scruff him and remove him from the bed.

Scruffing is good because it mimicks the mommy reinforcement that says "this behavoir is not acceptable." However, sometimes it's not enough. Cat's are highly influenced by reinforcement, and sometimes you may reinforce behaviors without intending to or realizing it. If your cat is seeking a reaction, you waking up and scruffing him may be reinforcement enough, because he wants you awake (for whatever reason) and even annoyed. Obviously, with this behavior it's tricky, though. Sometimes you can get rid of bad behaviors in cats (if the root cause is attention-seeking) by ignoring it entirely and not reacting at all.. but that's hard to do when you're being physically hurt. This is why I would try the above tactic of reaction.

>We're planing on having a baby soon and he cant be doing this to a sleeping baby.

Yeah, soo... don't give kitty access to the baby at night! Honestly, sometimes you just can't trust animals. Not all of them, but... ones that act like this at night are not a good risk to take.

The first thing to resolve is playtime. It's possible she just loves plastic, but the fact that she doesn't want to play with you at all suggests either a picky cat, or one that doesn't yet trust you. You're the food provider, but playtime is also quality bonding time for a cat. She's already fully grown, so maybe it's a learned thing, but it's something that you should be able to correct to some extent.

There are some motion cat toys that you could try using to get her playing more on her own.

like this



or this

It's also possible that you aren't playing with her the way she wants to be played with, cats can be very fickle about this. My own cat is very picky about how my SO and I play with her, and she picks one of us based on how she wants to play. She'll pick me when she wants to chase a stick toy, and my SO when she wants to wrestle, that kind of thing.

Have you tried using the straws to play with her? Maybe try hiding a straw under a blanket where she can see it move from wiggling it. You could also try new tactics with the stick toys like this, hide them under things and move them. My cat only likes the stick toys if I alternate between moving them very slowly while in her line of sight, slowly moving out of her line of sight, and then moving it quickly to get her to chase it when she tries to pounce it.

I'd also suggest looking up different playtime techniques for cats online, like on YouTube or what have you, especially related to more wild/feral cats, as they also don't really like playing with humans. I'm not saying she's wild of course, but because she's more standoffish from you it may be along the same lines.

If you can get her to play with you consistently, then you can very easily tire her out and get her on the schedule YOU want her on. The idea is that cats hunt/play and then eat the reward of the hunt, and then sleep.

My own cat used to be very similar with waking us up very early for food, usually by making lots of noise and biting if that didn't work. Once we were able to get her on the hunt/eat/sleep schedule with her timed meals, we basically stopped the bad morning behavior entirely.

Sorry for the long post, hope this helps!

I can't speak for your cats, but my cats love this ball circuit.

I've had it for a year, and they will still play with it.

u/JaggBoom · 3 pointsr/CatTraining

If I work from home i try to have a box near me, especially a new one. He jumps into it every time.

Food puzzles throughout the day (staggered feeding with mostly kibble).

This one I just put kibbles in and he has to fish them out
Catit Design Senses Play Circuit

Or empty toilet paper or paper towel rolls, put in kibble fold ends. Cut holes in if you'd like.

6 pack beer boxes. Put food in holes. You can even cover some of them with crumpled paper so long as your cat wont ingest it.

u/i_grok_cats · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

For my cats, it took a lot of trial and error, but we found that our cats like wand toys best, especially if there was spring that stimulated more than one sense, like a bell or something hard that could be tapped. We really like the neko-fly toys, but those are expensive (like twenty dollars for wand and toy) and we found that the wand wasn't sturdy enough for our cats.

The wand toy only works for ours because we will run down the hallway with it to the bed, where they like to attack it with pillows in strategic locations for optimal pouncing. Also, my backpack is a great barrier because they love the smell of it so will often play around that while a wand toy is in motion.

One of our cats also enjoys playing fetch. We use small stuffed mice. If they have real fur, the cats love it the most but I've found that those last barely a day. I have also used leather straps that I got at hobby lobby. They like chewing on the ends.

For awhile we had a track with a light up ball that they would play with.

Also, the standard laser works. The only problem with that is cats like to chew on things, abs the laser really didn't have that. Give them treats after playing with the laser.

Also, is your cat lazy? We found that when our cats are fatter they are more lazy, but much more active when we started cutting back their food intake. Also, not playing with them near their food dish is useful to, as they will tend to think they are getting fed instead of being played with (will think this if you have set feeding times, mostly).

Finally, you're going to have to try different toys. My cats really like the stuff they can chew on our hold onto. We had foam balls for awhile that basically disintegrated from being chewed up so much (lol!) And also, those craft fuzzy balls were fun. The smaller ones, we found out one of our cats had eaten when we cleaned out the litter box. Since, we've gotten large fuzzy balls.

Oh I also remembered that they liked sniffing and chewing those antlers that you can get dogs. A small one is large for their mouth, and I'd recommend one that was split open, but they liked it a lot. We never let then have it without our supervision though.

Oh, and like I said in my earlier comments, anything that has my sweat on it, they will go insane for. Try running your hands over toys to get them interested.

So, going off that, some dog toys can be just as much fun. Just think like a cat when looking at toys. And don't restrict yourself to just the cat toy section. Try the hobby aisles or the dog aisles.

Sorry I can't be too much help on toys but perhaps these suggestions will help!

Well, one of them will treat your feline friend, of course! Who else would annoy you endlessly every time you go to pee and fluff all over you when you're cold or sick? Time to appreciate them!

It's this toy. Really great for cats with a strong hunting instinct. Dora goes nuts, Bug mostly watches until she's figured it out.

This is a similar toy and I think it would be cool too.

u/theRacistEuphemism · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Sassy and Martu stop fighting!

I say give them foraging opportunities/toys! My ex always told me cats don't forage, but damn it, they'll learn to get good at it. It keeps them busy and can detract attention from each other. I really like the kibble balls pet stores sell, so back when I had two cats, I would load the kibble ball up for one and hide kibble all over the apartment for the other. I really like the Catit circuit too - both the ball and any pieces of kibble in there will give them something to do, and it can turn into a collaborative activity.

Other than that, yes, Feliway!

u/Gushluva · 2 pointsr/Pets

A window perch would be a good idea if she likes observing the outside world.

Also this one is a favorite of my two cats, I often find them playing with it and its by far their favorite toy, doesn't need an interaction from you. I actually bought all of its accessories (3 or 4 of them). http://www.amazon.com/Catit-Design-Senses-Circuit-Original/dp/B001LWRFW2.

Goodluck and good for you for caring about your cat's wellbeing and needs!

u/tb3648 · 1 pointr/CFBOffTopic

Just saw this.

Source: Cats my entire life.

  • I don't think 10 hours alone everyday is good for a kitten, a young-middle age cat would be better. The best thing would be to get 2 cats so they aren't lonely, but that's obviously a big commitment. Cats are totally ok alone for a long time but they still miss you. My cat acts out if I'm gone for too long.

  • It's pretty easy honestly. I wanted a dog too but decided on the cat because they are relatively easy to take care of and can be alone for longer than dogs. Changing the litter, feeding, clipping claws, occasional bath, and then playtime are all you need. If you get 2, you can cut back on playtime some.

  • Kittens are obviously the ideal choice cause they're so freaking cute, but I would consider an older kitten in this circumstance.

  • Vet bills are expensive. Cat food and cat litter are expensive, but not as much as dog food. Be ready to not be able to leave for a weekend at moments notice. This is the only thing I don't like, it limits my mobility. Have to find someone to watch them or put them up somewhere which is expensive. I've left my cats alone for a weekend before plenty of times when I was younger and had multiple cats though. I only have one now so I feel terrible cause I know he'll get lonely.

  • I recommend feeding them dry food and saving canned food for small amounts as a treat. I've had cats get hooked on the wet food and refuse to eat the dry food which is substantially cheaper. It's worth it to spring for the more expensive litter to make it last longer (clumping) and so your house doesn't smell bad. Also no need to really spend much money on toys, just get them a box lol. One toy my cat does love is this though, totally worth it. Don't use lasers, I was for a while but it started driving my cat mad and found out it bad because they never get the satisfaction of catching anything.

  • Beware plastic. My cat is legit addicted to it but it's super dangerous for them. I didn't care at first and just thought he was weird until he threw up plastic (thought the idiot was just licking it not eating it) and found it in his poop.

    Good luck!
u/Justanotherflower · 1 pointr/cats

You basically need to find a way to keep him entertained in the mornings. Here's a few options:

  1. Get him a buddy. My kitten used to be so needy and wanted to play at the worst possible times up until I introduced her to one of my cats from home. I have since moved that other cat into my apartment and they are best friends. They play together and wrestle all the time. Your cat is still pretty young, so this may be a good option for him.

  2. Get him some toys/games that will entertain him for a while. There's actually a lot of toys that cats can play with that will keep them entertained on their own. If you have an iPad or a tablet you can download games for cats. I have a laser game and a mouse game that I downloaded for free and I just leave the iPad on the floor and they play with that for quite a while. Other entertaining toys we have are this (courtesy of this year's Reddit Secret Santa!) and also this. Both these toys can keep my kitties entertained for quite a while.

  3. I've never had to do this, but you could try getting up with him at 6 one morning to play, and then the next morning make it 6:15, and then so-on until you're at the ideal time for you. Again, I've never tried this, but it might be worth it.

  4. After you establish a better sleep schedule for him, keep him in your room on the nights that your roommate's girlfriend stays over. Then she can't really wake him up and make him want to play. If that's not an option, you could ask her to play with him for a couple of minutes in the morning before she leaves.

    I hope you figure something out for both yours and your cat's sake. The best solution for me was to just get another cat. Now I don't usually have problems with them wanting to play at bad times anymore. But I know that for a lot of people, getting another pet just isn't an option. So I would definitely try the toys. I'm sure there's plenty of other toys out there other than the ones I mentioned that could work for your kitty as well.

    One last note- if your kitty isn't neutered, I would definitely recommend getting him neutered. Neutering cats has a lot of benefits, and it might even help with the howling- source
    Again, good luck!

I have a cat that loves to play. Here are some of the things she has: da bird cat toy, circuit , a cat tree (armarkat), and some stuffed toys I made for her

Edit: For the circuit, you can make it as long as you want, and it doesn't have to be in a circle. Also, cats like boxes.

Haha, of course! My cat is so spoilt, but it's so worth it! If you're ever looking for exciting toys for her (aside from the laser pointer which someone else mentioned) This is by far my cat's favourite. He usually gets bored with things quite quickly, but he loves playing with that.

u/PurePerfection_ · 1 pointr/Pets

This approach may take some time, but my cat eventually learned that if I am in the bedroom with the light off and fan on (its an oscillating one that makes a fairly strong humming sound), I am down for the night and it'll be at least a few hours before I come back. After a few weeks of this routine, he gave up on screaming outside my door. The bedroom is off-limits to him at all times, as well. If I'm in there with the light on, he will meow at me, because he knows I'm likely to come back soon.

Mine's a door-rattler, too - he can fit his paw in the crack under the bedroom door and wrap it around the door. To protect the bottom of the door from his claws, I put some rubber weatherstripping on it. For the floor, consider getting a protective film to put down where she usually scratches. Hardware stores sell them to use during painting / construction, and many of them are affordable and tear-resistant.

It may be inconvenient, but do your best to cat-proof the house so you can ignore her acting out with minimal collateral damage. Keep anything fragile in drawers or cabinets unless you're actively using it. Consider making the bedroom a no-cat zone and putting as many valuables as possible in there. Don't leave food or drinks unattended - if you have to step away, stick them in the fridge or a cabinet while you're gone.

Also consider an electronic toy that moves around or something more interactive that will keep her engaged at night or while you're busy without the need for a human to facilitate playtime. Here are a few ideas::








Also, if she ignores the scratching post but loves to tear the crap out of your floor, she may prefer a horizontal scratcher. One wasted $30 scratching post later, I figured that out about my cat. Something like these would be worth a try:

https://www.amazon.com/Bergan-Turbo-Scratcher-Colors-vary/dp/B000IYSAIW - doubles as a toy

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009YQ5KJM/ - this one is nice because you can lay it flat on the floor, prop it up at an angle with the cardboard flap, or hang it from a doorknob to see which works best. Also comes with catnip to sprinkle inside it. These have corrugated cardboard surfaces and don't last as long as carpet or sisal rope, but my cat seems more satisfied with something he can actually destroy. He'll jump on it, attack it with his claws, then roll around in the bits he tore off. You will vacuum a lot of cardboard flakes off the floor as it starts to wear out, but for me it's worth the trouble. If you don't like the mess, you can buy this one to test whether horizontal, inclined, or hung against the wall works best, then invest in a similar style of scratcher made from more durable material. That was my plan, but he just loves this stuff so much I order one as an add-on every month when I buy litter.

My cat is some sort of world destroyer, too. I've had success with field hockey balls and ping pong balls. While the ping pong balls don't last quite as long, they are insanely cheap. I leave them propped on shelves and things all over the house for her to find, and she basically plays teeball with them.

this is pretty much the most awesome toy ever. You can configure different shapes for the track, and while she bites it and plays rough, it's really held up well. She goes absolutely positively insane for this thing. The ball inside moves fast, and there's a slight incline at each end that will send it back to her. It's awesome. We bought a second track with hills and made a really long one. It's awesome for my super energetic cat.

Catit Design Senses Play Circuit, Original https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001LWRFW2/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_OnT.tb0TSCVZ9 Mostly because of the kitten on the right's reaction to the toy!

In case you are wondering, it's a ring with a ball in it, I'm afraid it's not a Roomba.

Are your cats engaged in the ball in tunnel style toys like http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-Design-Senses-Circuit-Original/dp/B001LWRFW2/ref=pd_sim_petsupplies_2 ?
These entertain my cats while I am out pretty well, but they only work if your cat will initiate the play. Plus with these you can rearrange the thing to keep them engaged. I have more than one set. If you want the light up balls you need to order them separately.
