    Advertisements
    every week it's a new bad habit with charlie! i've tried spraying him with water...it works but only for about 5 second, then he's right there, doing it again! right now he keeps jumping on the counters & knocking my glasses over (and he's broken one). PLEASE HELP! how do i get him to stop????? it makes me so angry! i can't even relax when i eat cause i am constantly having to get up and get him off the counter.

    Try putting a little vinegar or lemon juice in the water. I know it sounds mean, but it's a last resort. Have you tried the can of pennies? I hate that method with dogs, but cats have a kind of different mentality.

    Put foil on the counters. I know that's a pain, but hopefully it will scare him enough to not get up there anymore.

    A can of pennies is a good idea too. They hate loud noises.

    I have always just kept up with the spray bottle. Took my cats forever to figure it out. But now, they dont even think about getting on the counters. They would be mid jump and I would spray. You just have to keep at it. They are just like kids..... sometimes you have to tell them over and over and over before they get a clue! good luck!

    try getting a metal bowl or a set of keys and throwing them on the ground near the cat while he's doing something wrong.. it'll scare him enough and if you keep doing it when he does what he's not supposed to he'll associate those sounds with the bad behavior and stop. I was watching Martha today and that's one of the tricks they said to keep a dog from eating off the table! Pretty neat to me!!!

    I had to do that with some cats back home that would try to eat my fish. It was a pain in the ass, but it worked great!

    With cats, it's hard. You have to constantly keep at it.
    When Clover was a kitten, she used to constantly get into stuff and jump up on the counters. I was living with my mom at the time, and she wasn't going to tolerate my cat jumping up on the counters.
    So....everytime she jumped up on something she wasn't supposed to be on, I just knocked her off.
    Now she doesn't even think about it jumping up on counters or tables....ANY tables.

    Water works, and so does double-sided tape...they hate the way it feels.
