A “Kneady” Cat And An Anxious Beagle-Hound

A “Kneady” Cat And An Anxious Beagle-Hound

While Kathryn is in the shower or getting dressed, her cat Blakey carries and kneads a piece of clothing for 10-15 minutes. If they take away the item of clothing, the cat walks around the house yelping for 5-10 minutes. He’s done this since they got him from an animal shelter. A six month old Beagle-hound mix, Cullen, urinates whenever his human companion David pets, plays or walks with him. Unfortunately this doesn’t happen with anyone else in the house Can Cullen’s behavior be modified?

As a caretaker we must also consider the capacities of our pet. I think it is not good to let them blend with their non family animals. - Brenda Lee Reed
