This is one of my cases via email:  


Dear Dr. Basil, I hope this letter finds mew well. I have a bit of a purroblem that I'm hoping mew can help me with. Mew see, my human recently started dating a new boyfriend, and I can't stand him. Every time he stays over, I can't help but pee on his clothes. My human is not happy with me, and I really don't want to cause any trouble. Can mew please help me figure out how to overcome my intense dislike of this new boyfriend? Sincerely, Pansy, the Tabby

This is my Expert Reply
Today, I use the colour PINK, which is the colour of love and hopefully will be the purrfect choice for this particular purroblem.

Dear Pansy, I understand that adjusting to changes in your human's life can be difficult, especially when it involves a new purrson who mew're not used to. Here's a 9-point plan to help mew overcome your intense dislike of the new boyfriend: 1. **Positive Association:** Try to associate the new boyfriend with positive experiences. Encourage your human to spend time with both of mew together, engaging in activities that mew enjoy. 2. **Comfort Zone:** Create a safe space for yourself where mew can retreat when mew feel uncomfortable. This will help reduce your stress levels and give mew a sense of security. 3. **Reward System:** When mew interacts calmly with the new boyfriend, ensure your human rewards mew with treats and affection. Positive reinforcement can help change your perception. 4. **Slow Introduction:** Ask your human to introduce the new boyfriend gradually. Let him approach mew calmly and offer treats or toys to build trust. 5. **Scent Transfer:** Exchange scents between the boyfriend and yourself by rubbing a towel or cloth on him and placing it in your favourite spots. This helps mew get used to his scent without feeling threatened. 6. **Playtime:** Engage in interactive play sessions with the boyfriend. Play is a great way to bond and build positive associations. 7. **Consistent Routine:** Maintain a consistent daily routine to reduce stress and anxiety. Predictability can provide a sense of security for both mew and the new boyfriend.

8. **Patience and Understanding:** Remember, change takes time. Be patient with yourself and the new boyfriend. Understanding each other's needs and boundaries is essential for building a harmonious relationship.

9. **Worst Case Scenario:** If you're still having trouble adjusting, consider contacting me again, and we'll devise a plan to run the new boyfriend off into the sunset to restore your zen harmonies! MOL

I hope these tips help mew navigate this challenging situation. Remember that mew deserve to feel comfortable and secure in your home. With patience and perseverance, mew can overcome your dislike and build a positive relationship with the new boyfriend. Or we can initiate Step 9, the Worst Case Scenario plan.

Yours most sincerely
Dr. Basil

  1. Awww, poor Pansy. That's good advise but the boyfriend has got to go! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. I am heartened to see you providing sich good advice.

  3. Welcome back. I missed you. XO

  4. That is very good advice, but maybe you can see what your mum can't see, and the boyfriend is not suitable. Does he even like cats?

  5. If you don't like him then he needs to go and mom should know that. I don't think this is the right boyfriend.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scrithches to all the kitties and a big hug to mom. ♥

  6. Good to see you again, Dr. Basil! You never cease to amaze me with the excellence of your advice!

  7. One thing I've noticed is, if I'm in the presence of a cat I've never met and I try to meet it, it tends to shy away as if it does not know my motives. If I ignore it, it will often come to me. Maybe the boyfriend is trying too hard.
