Tips, Tricks and Techniques for Persuading Felines
While cat owners love their purring, fuzzy friends, cats can have another, rather unpleasant, side. Some cats spray; defecate and urinate on carpets, in corners, in shoes, on visitors' leather jackets; shred upholstery; chomp house plants; ambush guests; caterwaul at all hours; and scratch and bite children.
