Cole hardly ever jumped up on the counters, but then Marm arrived on the scene and was determined to be up there as much as possible! Nothing is off limits to Marm HAHA
We could have tried many other methods to deter him from being up there, but never saw it as a big deal, so didn’t waste time and money on the issue. Also many of the suggestions for deterring your cat centered around what we consider “scare therapy” so we weren’t going to even indulge those.
He trained us quickly to acclimate to his world and the best solution….lots of cleaning supplies on hand and a good scrub down before/after meal time! Win-Win.
We fur-mly believe he still would have jumped up there no matter what we did, because he’s that kind of cat! Plus, who knows what they get up to when you’re not there to catsit 🙂
Are YOUR cats allowed on the kitchen counters? What methods have you tried to deter them?
