Cat issues!?

How do you get your cat from climbing all over you at the computer? Ugh she is driving me crazy!! We just renamed her Bellaca (pron: Bay-Aka) which is spanish for horney. cuz she is just so annoying. as soon as you pet her once shes just all up on you..if you stop she cries and claws he way back on top of you.

  • Some cats just have that personality where they crave attention. The older they get, the less often it will happen.

    Since you said you have other cats, she could also be displaying her dominance. Every time she rubs on one of you or the computer, etc. she is scent marking it. That's pretty common when introducing new cats to an environment.

  • Sounds like she might be entering a heat cycle. This usually happens by about 7-9 months of age, and the cats will yowl, roll around, be especially affectionate, and start to walk funny. If you think that's the issue, contact a vet now and get her spayed ASAP and her affections will tone down a bit. If that's not the issue, you could get her a perch or someplace else to sit when you are on your computer so the shifts her attention to her new spot. Cats tend to love watching the mouse move across the screen and will pounce at it, but will do the same to a red laser pointer (you can buy cat toy pointers at the pet store).

  • I had a kitten like that, he out grew it. sometimes they just alot of attention, especially when they are lil. Try to make sure you spend at least 10 minutes with her playing with toys and brushing her ect before you get on the pc, that may help appease her.
