CAT WITH A FUNNY QUIRK
I have a black and white cat. When we rescued him he was taken away from his mother at young age. Male cat. He had a weird tendency when he was younger , he would suck his paw. Vet said he would most probably grow out of it. He had a tendency to sit on my sholder and that was quite when he was young but now that he is grown he is freeking me out. He would meouw when I wash my hair. Also cuite, but now he likes drools when he is sitting next to me and keep on smelling my hair. Also cuite to some extent. However this last month he would smell my hair and then start licking himself and I don't meen cleaning. What can I do

Hi There

Well, my only suggestion is to go onto the website: www.animal-behaviour.org.za and find someone in your area that could do a full assessment at your house and assist you with this. They would be able to do a consult and view the behaviour. It would be better that way.

Good luck
