Tangerine is mean

I’m not a tangerine dream…I’m a tangerine nightmare!

What makes Tangerine so mean?

Our cat Tangerine takes pissed-off to the root of the term. When she wants something, she wants it now, and she wants it her way. I bought a rustic carved wood bowl and put it on the table as she watched. She must have been thinking the whole time, “Humm, let’s see what I can do to that bowl!” The next morning she wanted outside at about 5AM, but I wouldn’t let her out. When I left the room and she peed in my new bowl.

One time my husband was playing with her too rough on our bed she ran off. He left the room and she came back in and carefully peed on his side of the bed. She does many things that we swear she thought out. [[Meankitty's note: she totally does think it out.]] Even so, we wouldn’t trade her for the world.

Advice: Pan Scratcher

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Dear Meankitty,

My mean cat has decided that she sometimes does not like the newspapers spread around her cat pan to catch litter. She scratches and bites and rolls and tears at the papers every day at 4 a.m. At 10 a.m., she does not mind the papers, nor are they a problem at 6 p.m. What is going on here?

Sincerely,
Furious at 4 a.m.

Dear Furious at 4 a.m.,

Apparently you are ignorant of the national organization, SOHC (Society of House Cats), which states that members must, among other things, do something noisy at least once while their human is sleeping. As all house cats strive to be in this highly reputable society, I doubt yours is going to leave off just because you don’t like it — to do so would be to forfeit membership. Learn to sleep through it.

Sincerely,
Meankitty

Gallery: Lebron

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Name: Lebron
Location: Tucson, AZ

Lebron is a meankitty

And you wonder why I want to go outside…

What makes Lebron so mean?

Lebron is for sure a mean kitty. He is an inside-outside kitty. We have mixed feelings about this, but we desided to do this with him since he has a flair for peeing on our futon sofa. No matter how much time he is out, though, he comes inside to pee on the futon. We have to keep a plastic protector under the cover! LOL!

Lebron likes to pee

Gonna spell “Urophobia”–something I do not have–and take triple word score!

He also loves to perch on the table while my mother and I play scrabble. He waits until he has a chance, and he scoops up a scrabble tile for himself. He is a little stinker!

Also, he likes to pee in the bathroom sink. This morning, he did so when I was not looking, and then he “buried” it with the clean clothing I just put on the counter in preparation for getting ready for work. Evil!

Could you PLEASE put those nice warm clothes beside the sink so I can hide my scent from predators? Is that too much to ask?

He is a lovely, affectionate cat, but he cries and cries when he wants attention until he is payed his due. He is a true mean kitty!!!

Advice: Uncovered Poo

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Dear Meankitty,

My kitten is five months old and whenever he uses the litter box, he does not cover up his poop. He simply scratches around the sides of the litter box leaving the poop completely exposed. Then he just walks out. What is wrong with my kitten and how can I help him?

Dear FO,

Nothing is wrong with your kitten! He thinks his poo smells like roses and wants to share it with you.

Gallery: Chase the Urinator

Chase is a meankitty

Clearly, their definition of 'clean' and mine are two different definitions. For example, they consider this food bowl "full" but it only has a strange, tasteless clear liquid in it.

What makes Chase so mean?

Chase likes to pee everywhere. It doesn’t matter if the litterbox is clean or dirty. He doesn’t seem to care or have a pattern. His name might be Chase but I call him the Urinator.

I think it’s because he is so lazy. He has to pee and doesn’t want to move, so he just lets it out whereever he is.

Advice: Litterbox Misery

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Dear Meankitty,

My cat won’t go in the box, my cat won’t go in the box, my cat won’t go in the box, my cat whizzes in the clothes, my cat poops in the living room! What will I do?

Sincerely,

Dear Slaves,

I get this question more often than any other. Any. Other. I have answered it several times, in several variations, but no more! At least, no more until I feel like answering it again. Or think of something new that is bound to be entirely useless for actual cat behavioral issues, which you may or may not have noticed, I don’t often “do”. Anyway, if you asked me this anytime over, oh, I dunno, the past freakin’ year, this is your response.

Sincerely,

Advice: Out of the Box

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

Dear Meankitty,

HELP!!!!! I have a 4 month old male kitten and here lately he has missing the litter box and pooping bedside it. I clean it out regular, like everyday, but he refuses to poop in it. He just started this behavior just a week or two ago and we have no clue why. I have tried bleaching the spot as well as putting vinegar but he just will not give it up. Do u have any advice?

Sincerely,
Carmelia

Dear Carmelia Slave,

Well, since it’s been ages since I got this email from you, I am going to assume the problem took care of itself. However, if you want to know what I would have told you had my Typing Slave been on the ball enough to post timely advice, I would have told you to cut a huge trap-door type hole in the floor where the kitten usually poops and the next time he squatted in the wrong place to do his business, presto! he’d be in for a rude shock when he dropped into the pail of cold water you placed in the pit. That might scare the sh*t out of him, but at least it wouldn’t be on the carpet.

Sincerely,
Meankitty

Dear, Mean kitty

I have a cat that we just moed with. He is a boy his name is Toby and he is not weel around little kids. He has been going to the bathroom eerywhere. I do not want to take him to the vet just yet. Is their any way I can buy something or do some trick to makehim stop it? Or is he just marking his territory and i just have to wait it out? Please gie me some REAL advice please?

Thanks,
Catlover

Dear Catlover,

It makes cats really angry when their humans can’t spell. Sometimes this makes them go to the bathroom everywhere, hence the term “pissed off”. As for tricks to make him stop weeling little kids, maybe you shouldn’t moe your cat? That sounds painful. Did giving him the moe involve a 3 Stooges eye poke? Or just a general nyuk nyuk nyuk and a head bonk?

Sincerely,
Meankitty

PS The cat is pissed off. Spoiling him will be of more use than a vet.

Advice: Bad Poo for You

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Dear Meankitty,

My young cat Raider has a pooping problem. She uses the cat box but more often she uses the corners of the house. I’m afraid if I don’t get rid of her, she will cause my other 11 week old kitten and my year old cat to start pooping in the wrong places. Help? I need your advice!!!

Sincerely,
LoX

Dear LoX,

Welllll, I was going to tell you a life-changing, enriching, miraculous secret too, but you lost me when you mentioned that you actually consider getting rid of her over a little poo. Are you related to Heartbroken in San Francisco? So…none for you either!

Sincerely,
Meankitty
