De-Needy Your Cat

Follow these tips to help your cat be less demanding.

If you don’t want your cat in your face at all hours, try these suggestions:

  1. See your veterinarian to rule out any medical problems.

  2. Differentiate needy from demanding.

  3. Look in the mirror to discover who created this monster, then:

  4. Don’t respond to demands you find obnoxious or overbearing.

  5. Don’t be a pushover.

  6. Be like a cat: a bit aloof, a bit indifferent.

  7. Practice a gentle form of “tough love.” Just don’t give the cat so much attention.

  8. Bring home another cat. A lot of needy behavior is just boredom. An appropriate companion could solve your problem.
