2 months old? And you are wondering how to "tame" him?! I rescue cats, mostly kittens and there is only one way to "tame" a rambunctious kitten-PLAY WITH HIM! Wear him out. He is a little body with all of this energy that he needs to get out...he is doing what every kitten does if someone doesn't play with them...he knocks over plants, he tears stuff up, he is a terror. Find some toys that are interactive for when you are not there but play with him twice a day for 15-20 minutes or more. I recommend a laser pointer for playtime with him. That wears a kitten out more than anything.

Use a spray bottle, squirt him when he does something you don't want him to do-BE CONSISTENT and don't let him see it come from you. You want him to think...gee, everytime I step on this table, water comes from somewhere and I don't like it. If he knows it comes from you, when you aren't there he will do it.

Here are some toys I like to use for these little guys.

Only use this one under your supervision since he's so small...I have had a kitten get their head stuck and it took a vet to get her out after putting her under anesthetic and using a saw to cut her out.

Also, do you realize that he will be this way for a few more months? Don't play with him using your hands (he will think they are toys and might bite you) and get him a scratching post. He is at the point, if he is two months old, that he can be neutered as well.

Good luck

I totally agree that it's not an excuse for the cat to misbehave but often they are still learning the boundaries of the house and trying to see what they can get away with.

Every cat is different, but would a loud hand clap startle her if she sneaks up on you when you don't have the squirt gun or a "hey!"?

I've personally had good luck with feather wands, cheap feather boas that you can swish around for the carts to chase and tackle, a ping pong ball (on the hard floors), squeaking prey toys, this mouse toy that runs away when your cat swats it and plastic rings.

I guess it depends on what sort of games your cat likes already. Since she's all about the sneak attack- maybe a remote controlled mouse? or maybe a puzzle box?

Some of these you can make at home or substitute to get an idea of how your cat will respond to it before spending lots of money on something that they aren't too enthusiastic about.

Mine definitely play this game on purpose. The pantry door is their preferred spot but I bought them this toy and they use it a bit as well. They like to use table and chair legs as obstacles too. It's only fun if it's extra challenging, I guess.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/Pets

Oh, the difficulties of being a pet, with all your needs provided for you... I know the feeling, though. I want my cats to be happy and mentally stimulated.

One, rotate your toys. Put all of your toys in two or three boxes and change them every 2-3 days. I like to make a Tuesday box and a Friday box. On those days, I pick up the old toys and gradually introduce "new" ones from the box. Cats have really, really short memories, so they'll treat the "new" toys like they really are new.

Two, you can try toys that look like this: http://www.amazon.com/SmartCat-3833-Peek-Prize-Pet/dp/B0006VMN4O I make my own using cardboard boxes and toss them when they get gross. Just make sure the opening is big enough for them to get their paw in and pull the toy out. Err on the side of too easy. Even smart cats will get discouraged quickly. After all, he's never been challenged before! You can put toys or treats in there. Like the normal toys, if he gets bored, pick it up and hide it for a few days and then put it back out.

Three, get a treat-dispensing ball and put some dry food in there or treats. You can make your own using a toilet paper roll, but I find that it just gets greasy from the treats and my cats don't use it as much as the plastic balls I bought. This way he has to "work" for his food. My cats love it.

I'll also take the dry food and put it in a small plastic tupperware container (lid off), and then put under another tupperware, so they have to knock off the top one to get to the food. Or use a larger box/laundry basket and prop it up so they have to reach their paw under to get to the food, and if they nudge it, the basket falls down. This will frustrate them, so don't start with it, but when he gets bored of everything else, then you can start making it difficult. This is hard to describe, but I'm not at home so I can't take pictures for you.

Lastly, you can try Cat TV - putting on videos of birds, mice, etc for them to watch. Mine like watching YouTube videos of big cats like tigers. Be careful - if you put prey on your LCD screen, they will want to catch it, and that involves claws.

Oh, and about that toy he loved, I buy the following two toys at I think PetSmart for about $1-$1.50. Most cats love 'em. I've seen a few cats that go CRAZY for one or the other. One is a mouse with feathers for a tail and the other is a plastic ball with feathers sticking out.

Good luck!!

Maincoons LOVE to play and have that kitten play aspect to them for YEARS!!!Mine loved balls, and a good old laser pointer was the best thing ever. He would get running after that red dot, and couldn't stop well on our hardwood floors and would slide in walls....

Oh and a cat bed on top of the Fridge would be great for your girl. Tiki always slept on top of the fridge :)

My cats love the little puzzle toy that his came with.

u/eddieg007 · 1 pointr/Pets

I have Bengals and they destroy everything in seconds. Here are some toys that have held up for months:

  1. Vee Purrfect Leather Tassel toy http://www.veeenterprises.com/A1_pp554.htm
    get the leather not the feather one and make sure it's the one with the plastic tubing at the top. Can stand up to EXTREME play. But I would not recommend leaving it out when you're not playing with it. Did that once and our boy did manage to chew through the cord. That said these are incredibly durable.

  2. Cosmic Catnip A-Peeling catnip filled banana shape toy. In the past these have held up even to their teeth gnashing but the last one split open. Not sure if that was a fluke. The company actually sent a replacement and so far it's holding up.

  3. One of these wooden boxes: http://www.amazon.com/SmartCat-3833-Peek-Prize-Pet/dp/B0006VMN4O We stuff the catnip banana in it when we leave for work and they fish it out.

    Your probably already know this but avoid all toys with extra bits sewn on like eyes, whiskers, etc. Fake mice also bad - my boys would chew off the fur and eat it and once even swallowed the plastic form inside - so now we only give them toys that are 100% filled with the 'nip.

    Hope that helps.

Closest I have is a cat toy box.

clearly i don't need this because we all know that cats are lame and don't like to be fun. I don't even know if I like my cat. he is totally not the cat's pajamas. I mean, come on people, have you ever seen an uglier cat than this guy?! he should not be allowed to have anything fun, ever!!!

u/PhoenixBride · 1 pointr/cats

My kitties love playing in cardboard boxes and paper bags. They also love plastic straws and go nuts for the cat dancer. For when you aren't home, my cats play with the Peek-a-Prize toy and Catit Play Circuit. If you can afford it, a cat wheel is also great to keep him occupied.

Batman Suit!

You absolutely need this grass pet bed because holy shit, that bunny in the picture is absolutely adorable. For that reason alone, you need to buy this. What kind of pet do you have? Is it a rabbit?! Because if you have one and it is at least as cute as the one in the picture, it deserves that bed.

I need this cat toy box for my kitty because I think it will keep her busy trying to get toys that are inside of it. I am desperate for ways to help her burn off her energy when I'm gone for the day at class and come home to study and can't always play with her for hours on end (seriously, she would play for hours and hours straight if she could).
