Why does my cat scratch the floor at night?
A: My kitten started scratching my hardwood floors recently. He scratched hard. He had claws when I got him but I was told that this would heal. It's still like he's scratching a hard layer of skin off my floor. It's like I didn't get him until a few months ago. He hasn't been scratching hard before, he was just starting to scratch the front door when I first got him.
Q: My cat will wake me up scratching.
A: My cat was sleeping in our bed. I'm in the habit of getting up around 4am and trying to get some more sleep. When I woke up, I heard this scratching noise that sounded like it was right under the bed. I thought there was a squirrel under the bed or something. When I checked, I found out that my cat was scratching the floor under the bed. I thought maybe there was a mouse under the bed and he just jumped up from under the bed and scratched the floor but he still had a scratching motion. He's a white cat with brown paws. He's never done that before and we haven't had a mouse in the house since he was about 10 days old. I'm just worried that it's something bigger than a mouse.
A: Your cat is scratching to let you know that he is there, but not as a warning.
Q: Why does my cat cry when I pet her?
A: My cat is a year old and she is so playful, she likes to play around with me. However, when I get home from work, I usually pick her up and carry her around the house and she sometimes starts to cry. This happens once or twice a week and I can't figure out why. She doesn't really care for other animals. If I call a friend over to visit, she is OK but she will usually jump into their lap and stay with them. I think she needs to bond with a family member to understand that they are a part of her life.
