Welcome to Ask Brini!

This week's question comes from Catterina, New York, NY, and she asks:

"Dear Brini, My cat, Vicious, treats me like I'm her employee. How can I get her to stop this behavior and respect me? Catterina"

Dear Catterina:

First off, naming a cat Vicious is just asking for trouble. We all respond to what we're called, so to avoid the self fulfilling prophecy of a name like that, I suggest calling her Vi. Keeping the peace in a home with a cat is easy when you know what they want. In order to feel secure, cats have to be able to survey their territory. Make it possible for Vi to get to the highest point in the room. Give her access to the top of a book shelf and she'll feel like she has a say in her own destiny. Cats also like to be able to see out, especially if they aren't able to go out. A window sill perch will also be appreciated.

Your demeanor will help as well. Holding a calm, centered space when you're with Vi will give her the confidence to open up and relax.

Good luck with your kitty!

Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.
