Keeping Your Cat off the Kitchen Counters

Your cat may jump up on the kitchen counter because she hasn’t gotten food when she is up there. She may also use the counter as a vantage point to peruse her territory. However, your cat’s presence on the counters can be unsanitary and annoying when you are preparing food. Thus you need to keep her off the kitchen counters. Never feed your cat whenever she is on the counter. If she jumps up, remove her promptly and without fuss. Never yell at your cat or punish her while she is learning. Cover the counters with aluminum foil strips or double-sided tape while they are not in use. These materials feel weird to your cat’s feet and will deter her from walking up there. Provide an alternate perch such as a window ledge or shelf so she can observe the hubbub of your home from a point of safety. Contact your vet clinic Crown Point, IN to learn more.
