My Leia (female cat, mixed breed -ragdoll / ship cat, 1.5 years, neutered) has recently moved into an apartment. Has previously been an outdoor cat and caught several mice a day.
The first days as an indoor cat went very well, but now she screams day and night, scratching at the windows and window sills. (Everything on the windowsills goes down)
We have changed to a veterinary food for indoor cats, with several bowls. She has a climbing tree up to the roof, and we play with her every night. We have a “hormone spray” that works for the moment.
She walks on the drawer and does not tear any furniture.
Is it possible to convert her into a harmonious indoor cat? How long will it take?
