Keeping Your Cat off the Kitchen Counters
Your cat may like walking around on your kitchen counters because she gets food or she may peruse her territory from a high vantage point. However, it is annoying and unsanitary when you are trying to prepare food. The first and most important step in keeping your cat off the kitchen counter is to never give her food while she is up there. If she jumps on the counter, pick her up and place her on a more appropriate surface. Repeat as often as necessary without making a fuss or pushing her down. Cover the counters with aluminum foil strips or double-sided tape while not in use. These materials feel weird to your cat’s feet and will deter her from walking around up there. Provide an alternate perch such as a windowsill or shelf so she can observe the hubbub in your home from a safe place. Learn more from your animal hospital Green Bay, WI.
