Tools to Help Teach Your Cat Boundaries
Are you having trouble teaching your cat to stay off of the furniture? If so, talk with your vet about the pros and cons of a training tool known as the scat mat. A scat mat is a touch sensitive training pad that teaches your pet to stay off of the furniture or away from other prohibited areas. The scat mat releases a low power electronic pulse similar to static electricity. The clear and flexible vinyl scat mat can be placed at the entrance to a room, on furniture, or on counter tops. If your cat touches the mat he will feel three small zaps that will warn him to stay away. Most cats seem to understand the zaps and refrain from the mats and the protected furniture. If this isn’t the method you are looking for then you may want to check with a local cat or even a dog trainer. Contact your veterinarians Portland, OR as well.
