Shock collars for cats

In summary... He needs to be tired out... It is a phase that will pass, but until it does, he needs to expend all the energy he has. Have you thought about a cat wheel? You need to play with him until he is tired. Wand toys, cat wheel, clicker training, etc. No negative reinforcement - play and then some freeze dried chicken treats perhaps. Either clip his nails or let a vet do it - that will help with the scratches. Get some toys you can stick in his mouth to play with or chew on when he bites.

Hope all of this helps... He just needs to get rid of all the energy he has and you can help him.

Marilyn is SUCH a good resource! She enjoys Bengals and Savannahs so much that she prefers their cases over all other cat breeds, and having lived with them does not overreact to the exotic heritage and just works with the behaviors.

Yeah, shock collar is probably just gonna make him turn even more hostile. I agree with everyone else here. Try to spend alot of playtime with him to make him tired. Our F5 has about as much energy as a DJ on cocaine, so we take every chance we get to make her run, chase and think. Eventually she’ll just go lay down on the bed.

Hopefully all goes well!!

I did contact Marilyn , but I don’t think I can afford her. However, we did try the bitter spray yesterday and it worked great. My husband was playing with him , and he started getting really aggressive and biting him on his arm hard enough to bring blood. He sprayed his arms with the bitter spray then continued to play. When Zambe got in attack mode and bit his arm, he immediately backed off and even acted mad at my husband for about 20 minutes . He then came back and wanted to play with my husband again, and we noticed he would start to attack his arm but would stop and back off. We may have to spray our arms before bed and Mom’s ; since he wakes up raring to go and wanting to attack and bite too hard. He does seem to bite my Mom more than me, and I think he is trying to get her attention or wants to go out and she can’t take him immediately. He is a very spoiled boy with four people caring for him and does not like to be told no. Typical Savannah right? If the spray doesn’t work, I will definitely have to get the consult with Marilyn; because he is ours for life. No matter what it takes. My last 2 cats were 16 & 17 when they passed away and my horse was 32yrs old. I got the horse when he was 12 months old. My point is, my animals are my children and not disposable. Shock collar is out of the question now; however, when you google cat behavior modification, they actually show up. I didn’t even know they existed.
