Why do dogs hate cats? Dr Innis says there is no specific reason it’s just he way they are. “They are two completely different species but if you look in nature they have to fight for the same food sources, the same shelter. I think they are just naturally enemies.”

Kerry wanted to know what can I do to get my cat to stop peeing on my beanbag? Cats urinate in inappropriate places due to health or psychological issues. Dr Innis suggested throwing away the old beanbag, wash the covers and use a feliway spray on the bag. “It gives the cat a sensation that this is a friendly place. It deters them naturally.”
