New Cavalier MOM
Hi- I am Mary, married 30 years, 6 kids and live in Maine. We brought Daisy home with us last February. She just turned 1. She is a tricolor with very long, silky hair.
She charms everyone who sees her and the cat even tolerates her!
I find that she 'talks' to me a lot. if she wants attention, if she needs to go out, if she wants to play, or come and sit with me. If we're walking somewhere new, she'll whine like she's a bit worried about where we're going.
She is very food motivated, but will eat her dinner 1 piece at a time, on the rug. Never scarfs down the whole meal at once.
We originally got her for my daughter (12) but we all know how that ends up- Mom is mom to everyone, even the furbabies.
She follows me everywhere in the house. The only thing she does that I don't like is that she thinks cat poop is the most delicious treat ever (yuck!). So far, the only way I can keep her from getting into it is to clean the box frequently.

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...cfm?pcatid=595 You will find products that can assist you (as in the link provided). In some cases you merely feed meds to the animal whose poop is being eaten. The animal ingesting the poop will find it offensive and hopefully, not repeat the action. I'd ask the vet what s/he recommends.

Bentley doesn't find the cat poop outside unless they have been "sick" on the front porch, runny variety. Yuk. I have to get him away from it ASAP and try to notice it before he does and lead him the other way. These are outdoor cats. Thankfully, the buyer of our house is happy to have us leave the cats with the house so that makes all of us happy. Now I won't have so many issues with him wanting to chase them and be bothered by their fleas, etc.
