|Scruffing a cat, is a disiplinary measure, and should only be done by
very knowledgeable people, who know what they are doing. Done
incorrectly, it can harm the cat, and the cat has no idea why he is being
disiplined and can lead to mistrust and fear.
Scruffing is a tool, and just like any tool, that is used correctly, it does the
job it was intended for, done incorrectly, can lead to damage.
And, when one scruffs a cat, the cat is always supported by the back end.
Not supporting the cat, can lead to alot of medical issues.
Here are some links to help you.
I didn't read your page, just don't have the time, am in the middle of
show season with 2 kittens. But I do agree with Oliver.
Please teach the step child the proper way to handle a cat and ask your
husband to read these posts and the links I and others have provided.
Still need help convincing your husband? Give me your address and send
me a ticket, be glad to show him the light. Mis-treating kitties, is a
hanging offense in Texas. Don't mess with Texas.
