Question : My Bengal cat is unmanageable! Is it normal and what should I do?
I have a 5 month old Siamese. I adopted her when she was around 2 months old and she was the most affectionate, darling creature.
My sweet kitten has turned into a monster. Sometimes I feel like my apartment is haunted by a tiny demon. She runs around all night, and has heavy feet – it’s noisy and I hope the downstairs neighbor can’t hear it.
She bumps and kicks her toys all over, I keep finding destroyed paper napkins, and poop in the shower box, and she knocked over a jar full of utensils, and two eggs, and both remote controls, and she dragged a box of chocolates to the bathroom (and couldn’t open it), and she keeps jumping on the counter, and biting, scratching, clawing and attacking and wakes me up by gnawing on my toes.
If I shut the bedroom door she cries outside until I let her back in.
I’ve had cats all my life – and I’ve educated and raised many of them from birth. Disciplining a cat is hard work. It requires constancy and repetition and a lot of patience.
Yes, it’s normal. Your kitty is a teenager. Teenage cats, like teenage humans, are energetic, defiant, clumsy, inconsequential and sometimes annoying. They’re testing their limits – and yours. Bengals, like Siamese, are very active, energetic cats. That is a good thing! Playful cats are funny, cute and quite entertaining.
Their permanent teeth are coming in and they need to chew and chew and chew. Be patient. It will pass. Keep her claws trimmed (don’t de-claw your cat, please), give her attention, play a lot with her to spend some of that energy, especially a couple of hours before you go to bed, and pray that time goes fast.
This is the time to set limits – clap loudly or make loud noises when they jump on places they’re not supposed to, or say “NO!” sternly when they attack your hands and feet. Over and over again. A spray bottle with water helps with teaching them not to steal food or pee/poop where they shouldn’t.
Spaying/neutering helps with keeping them calm, too.
