    Shock collar

    Advertisements
    I'm thinking about getting a shock collar for our male cat. He is AWFUL about picking on our female until she poops on the floor. I'm tired of it. I know the sounds so well and I can't move up the stairs as fast because of my knee.

    do you think it would work? I know it is mean but I'm tired of poo on my floor.

    I'd probably try a squirt bottle with water first.

    I know dogs will run straight through an underground fence with a shock collar and not thing twice about it.

    We've tried that. Baths don't work. He just keeps going after her. They grew up together.

    I can't get rid of them because they are older and would get put down. But, I'm ready to do that myself.

    My DH says he can make him lay down and behave.

    I don't think shock collars work, I think they are just a band-aid for the real problem, but that's just me

    - this is especially true, imo, because you are dealing with a cat vs. a dog. Have you spoken with the vet and/or investigated WHY he is behaving the way he is? Once you identify the cause you can work towards fixing the issue.
