A dedicated cat room (inside or outside) may be the only solution. If inside put linoleum flooring down so it's easy to clean. My brothers wife insisted he build an outside cat house out of 1 of their barns. Covered everything including the floors with wire mesh so the outside critters couldn't get in and the cats can't get out. She buys old quilts/blankets at yard sales to throw in for the cats beds. The old ones get tossed when the new go in. Cats seem content.šŸˆ

Exactly!šŸ¤·šŸ¼ā€ā™‚ļø BTW, its cats and lots of em. They had a 20+ pound cat that would crawl up inside the springs on the sofa. When you sat down he would reach out and grab your ankle. Needless to say if they forgot to tell a guest it could get quite hilarious.šŸ˜³

John, you obviously haven't been bitten by the cat bug. It's call catification. It's a disease that affects lots of folks, myself included, to varying degrees. I never considered myself a cat person after a lifetime of being a dog person, then I married a woman with the cat disease and found it to be contagious. We currently have two, a tuxedo short hair female who's nine (Stacy) and a two+ year old orange tabby (Marco). Love them both to pieces and just like people they have unique personalities. At this exact moment Stacy is curled up in my lap where she spends every evening and Marco is checking his eyelids for leaks on "his" chair. I don't have a picture of Stacy that I can post but this is Marco.

I have stayed out of the discussion because I am not a cat person and I don't understand people that are. If I had the situation that is portrayed on the cat whisperer show they would be gone in a second. I will stop at that or this will go down hill in a hurry.

Tiny,

Marco looks like a fine upstanding young fellow, funny how all cats like Christmas trees. I've had Siamese, rag doll, tabbies and Manx. They are all Loveable and have their own personalities . Currently Cat less after putting Fred down last November, a 3yr diabetic he finally gave up at 14 yrs. old. Not yet ready to get another, It's hard to replace a friend.

Ditto Tiny,I too have become 'infected' by the bug,they sure get under your skin,I inherited a feral moggie when I met my wife,we had a gap of a year after she passed @18 years,then we got Boo,our Maine Coon girl,Dexter the big dufus followed a year later,and a refugee we adopted Rallo our jet black serial killer. (We reckon he came from farm stock) so has a keen rodent annihilation instinct.
All joking aside we have never been willingly clawed or bitten by any of our three,and trust me, if Dexter (Our 23lb lad) decided to have a go it wouldn't be pretty!
They're truly fascinating wee critters.

They do become quite the pals. I have Rey my 2 year old blind guy and Wicket who must be pushing 15. I got her last year. She was a feisty critter who hated everyone especially other cats. But I saw something in her and after 6 visits to the pound I brought her home. She is the most loving cat but very vocal. She saw a raccoon the other morning and started to chase it thinking it was another cat. The coon ran but stopped and turned around to face her (8 feet away) and that is when I brought Wicket in the house.
Rey was feral and has no eyes. He comes from Cuba where somebody decided that as he was handicapped he should be in a sanctuary. He was there 6 months and then boarded a 737 for Canada.

Big negative on the catification. For those who don't know, the main/home office spaces of the Stovebolt.com global publishing empire are co-located with a real working farm. We have a few cats here (all neutered) and we like them well enough. But they are considered "independent contractors." As such, they are pretty much on-demand labor. And as we all know, cats don't do the "labor" thing very enthusiastically. They have a job to do around here. When they fail to live up to their end, they get fired. To paraphrase a quote from Ben-Hur -- "Serve this farm well and live."
