Keeping Your Cat Off Your Kitchen Counters
Your cat may love hanging out on your kitchen counters because she gets food and she can use the high vantage point to monitor her territory in your home. However, this can be annoying or unsanitary if your cat is on the counter when you are trying to prepare food. The first step in keeping your cat off your kitchen counters is to never give her food while she is up there. Whenever she jumps up on the counter, gently remove her and put her on a safe, approved surface. Don’t yell at her or push her off the counter. Ensure that all family members follow this simple procedure too. Give your cat an alternate perch such as a windowsill or shelf where she can safely observe the hubbub in your home. Soon your cat will understand that the kitchen counters are off limits for her. Learn more from your veterinary clinic Fort Bragg NC.
