How to live with an aggressive cat: podcast from Newstalk’s Pat Kenny Show

Cats are predators, so naturally they have an inbuilt element of aggression. Most pet cats are gentle creatures who rarely show aggressive behaviour, but many do have periods where they may bite or scratch their owners or visitors. To find out how to deal with this, listen to the podcast below.

Questions from listeners about pets

The following questions came in from listeners during the vet spot and you can hear Pete’s answers in the podcast:

  • I gave my six month old Spaniel pup a wormer dose last night; can I go ahead and apply a flea and tick spot on this morning?
  • What should I do about a magpie that I have seen in my estate? He looks as if he has an injured wing.
  • Is it possible to train a cat? My cat keeps jumping up onto the kitchen units, however often I tell him not to do this.
  • I am getting a rescue dog today – she is very nervous so are there any tips to get her settled into our new home.

Pete also did a Facebook Live video where he answered more questions.
