My GF got two young cats (1 year old now).

WHen they are fighting/playing, they run into my computer or get caught in the cables behinf my PC.

They pulled my computer.screen and a speaker down once, because they were too stupid to go another way.

We could already teach them not to play with cables.
But how do I teach them to stay far away from my computer?

What would you do?

There's not a lot you can do besides train them to recognize the word "no"

Only use it rarely so that it doesn't lose its meaning but any time they go near the computer say "no" in a firm voice.

I've got a kennel that I put my cats in when they act up and at this point I just have to raise my voice to get them in there.

got the same problem with them
walking with their dirty paws around our kitchen-tables when we are asleep.

Our cats used to throw our framed pictures and posters down.

They listened to a "no!", but still caused the same havoc when we weren't at home or asleep.

Gave these shit-head animals away and now have a worry-free life.

Cats and children just suck.

HAHAHAHAHAHA I feel you, so hard. Snap your fingers or raise your voice and don't let them enjoy themselves near the PC, be chill at all other times and pet / treat them when they're being good (even rough housing in an acceptable way, play with them) they will learn to stay away in your presence.. but like others have said, cats simply avoid punishment in the moment, in your presence. They will likely be driven to return to any forbidden areas out of sheer curiosity and power of will, once you are gone.

From someone whose GF owns two of the shit heads, as well

I have two cats, they are throwing our framed pictures, controllers and remotes down when we are asleep.

They never go on the tables or near the TV when we are present,
but at night these fuckheads are ruining our stuff.

Is there something like an electric fence for indoor use?

I've seen electric mats, but they are waaay to overprized (80.- upwards for a plastic-mat with cables).

Looking for a good solution too,
because my shithead-cats are kicking down my phone and computerscreen regularly when I am not home.

I caught my cat once, eating from my food and threw that little fucker into the running shower.
I think it helped.

LOL NIGGAS! I have a cat nao.

My brother is deathly allergic to cats, so I won't be able to bring it with me when I move back in with my parents.

I'll ask around for whoever the owner might be, tomorrow, but for tonight, do I need to worry about this cat shitting anywhere?

I fed him ONE can of tuna. Will that be enough to hold him over the night?

Dog owners like to feed their dogs chocolate and cheese even though it's poison for them. Is tuna poison to cats? I saw the cat eating grass outside, I didn't know cats did that.

Cats often eat grass to make them puke.

Also don't count on keeping the cat. Some friends of mine took in a ropey old cat for a year, then towards the end of that year the owners who lived next door revealed she was theirs, she was 2, she had kittens she was avoiding caring for and now they were moving and taking the cat these guys had fed for a year.

Cats will adopt anyone who gives them food and attention. Outdoors cats wander and area and you may have just abducted someone's cat. They may be sat around wondering why it didn't come home. Make sure it's not trapped indoors if you found it outdoors. If there's no litter tray it WILL shit and piss and everywhere.

I don't know any dog owners who feed their dogs chocolate and cheese by the way. I feel like you're totally ill prepared to look after a cat and a bit clueless about the whole thing. Its for the best you can't kidnap it and drag it home.

This is not unique to house cats. larger cats and other carnivorous animals do it too (including dogs)
They do it if they have indigestion or if they feel sick... essentially they use it like we would have used ipecac.

I've taken care of many a pet during the years( both cats and dogs), and i've noted that most of the time it's due to the pets not getting a proper, varied diet. Most people feed their pets dry kibble every day, but nutritionally dry kibble (and most commercial pet food, especially big brands) is really, really shit. A lot of pet food include a lot of vegetables, starch or flour, which neither cats or dogs were meant to digest.

I usually fed them fresh meat along with fillers low in fibre and starches or made a separate portion of my dinner (excuding spices and other things they're not meant to have), after a while they would stop seeking out grass.

The dog I grew up with very rarely ate grass (like twice in her lifetime), but my parents also gave her a varied diet... sometimes just canned cat or dog food, other times mixed up with leftovers.

>I don't know any dog owners who feed their dogs chocolate and cheese by the way.
Sadly I know a lot of people that do it, especially elderly people and those that treat pets like babies (which imo is mistreatment in its own right)

Dogs are omnivores but less so than us, I think they can be healthy without meat but it requires a level of understanding beyond anyone who isn't a pet nutritionist. I imagine they might do okay with eggs though, a mostly meat diet is still best. Cats need meat or they die, their guts are structured such that they can only get certain amino acids from meats.

Your parents sound like they did a good job but this other guy has either killed the cat or his brother or it's run away by now.

Tangential cool dog fact: Dogs are one of the very few animals better at running long distance than people.

>which neither cats or dogs were meant to digest.
This is false. Wild cats obtain ~12% of their diet in plant matter from the intestinal tract of the herbivores they consume. They have a reduced capacity for carbohydrate digestion, this does not mean they cannot digest them at all.

>Both dogs and cats have the ability enzymatically (maltase, sucrose, and lactase) to digest carbohydrates (Hore and Messer, 1968). Morris et al. (1977) showed cats are able to efficiently digest glucose, sucrose, lactose, dextrin, and starch (apparent digestibility 94–100%). Additionally, cats have been reported to have lower enzymatic activities for carbohydrate digestion compared to other species (Kienzle, 1993a,b,c,d) and physiologic responses differ by carbohydrate type and thermal processing (Kienzle, 1994). These results indicate that although cats have the ability to efficiently digest carbohydrates, their capacity for carbohydrate digestion may be limited, as evidenced by digestive disorders, such as diarrhea, flatulence, and bloating, when high concentrations of carbohydrates (>5 g/kg BW) are fed (Kienzle, 1993b).

true, but they're not meant to eat it in raw form. By eating a herbivore, most of the digestion has already been done by the prey itself. Too many polysaccharides (starches, cellulose) in their diet can and will throw their digestion out of whack.

I never said they could not digest them at all.
