Pets and human psychology Diamond review

AdvantagesSolving behavioural problems and restoring the friendship between pet and his human companion

DisadvantagesDifficult to find the right behaviourist who can help with your pet

"...tell people that I’m a pet psychologist, I get strange looks. ‘Pets don’t need shrinks’ they tell me. ‘No, they don’t’, I reply, ’their owners do though in some cases...’ Unfortunately most pet owners treat their pet(s) like children. They tend to pamper them often to the point of excess (with results to have now a generation of obese cats, dogs, hamsters, fish, etc) and to get annoyed when their ‘cute pets’ behave like normal cats or dogs (dogs ..."

Barking mad or deaf

Advantagesit worked but not needed

Disadvantagesbetter understanding

"My dog is 14 years old and although I have heard of the saying "you cannot teach old dogs new tricks" I knew we had to do something when he suddenly started barking a lot. My daughter had just had a baby and they are living with us and although my dog can be trusted, as far as any dog can be, with the baby he started barking a lot around her.

AdvantagesLearn to understand cat behaviour and solutions to problems

DisadvantagesConsulting a behaviourist can be expensive

"...set of creatures. Feed them, pet them, let them out to play and a bed for their 15 hours + a day sleep - a contented cat is really simply to achieve. Well not so. Cats are like people and all have their own personality traits. Fearful, aggressive, depressed, agoraphobic, and as I've had over 60 cats through foster care here in the last year there are not many behaviour traits I haven't seen! Even my own cats are complex little characters! On ..." Read review

Mommy Cat no more...

AdvantagesCats are wonderful creatures

DisadvantagesCats go crazy sometimes...

"...an indoor cat and somebody's pet -- she had a weathered flea collar on, and was well-behaved. Given the timing of her arrival, I'd say she was dumped from college students who left town. That happens quite a lot here -- this is a university town, and college kids want a pet, but don't want the hassle of dealing with them when they have to leave, either for the summer or for good. I'm just far enough out in the country that if a cat were to get dumped, ..." Read review

It is worth to castrate cats. Why?

Advantagesbecomes more lovely

DisadvantagesListed below

"In Lithuania ( my country) cat’s castration (male) or sterilization (female) is getting more and more popular. People are beginning to understand, that smelly house and flat or little, cute kittens that go round the rooms and after 6 months become grown up cats, is not very lovely. I will try to prove that sterilization or castration is very useful not just for you but for your cat too. Why should you castrate or sterilize your cat? 1.In ..." Read review
