Purring pets from birth are endowed not only with curiosity, but also with a vicious habit from time to time to examine the space of tables, especially the kitchen. Interest in the upper floors is caused not only by the desire to bite carefully left by someone sausages, but also by the natural reflexes of the hunter. Yuri Kuklachev long ago proved that cats lend themselves to training, which means that it is possible to wean the tailed pet from jumping on the table.
All cats love heights and you need to know about this in advance. A wardrobe, a table, a sofa and a window sill are all places of patrol from where the murka can control everything that happens in the house. To punish for the desire to be on the table is not only not worth it, but also useless. As you apply physical strength to your cat, be prepared to say goodbye to the cleanliness of the slippers. Revenge will be cruel, and the habit of being at the table and tasting the master's food will not disappear anywhere. And the very fear of being beaten will evaporate without a trace in your absence. Only bashful eyes will betray the fact of a violated taboo, well, and wool in the cups.
Sometimes, to wean a cat from climbing on the table, it is enough to buy special cat furniture. The set with the house includes a lounger, proudly raising the fluffy pet above the floor. The option is certainly not bad, if the cat considers it as the only possible viewing angle, you can say you got off with a little blood. In practice, the lounger only complements the map of favorite places where the animal likes to be.
An animal is an animal, and no matter how you humanize it, it will not enlighten requests and persuasions to stop climbing on the table. Fortunately, there are much more effective methods that can develop in a cat a clear dislike for certain places and objects. In this case, it is a table.
Cats do not like harsh and loud sounds, they try not to be in places where they are uncomfortable. The hearing of these animals is significantly different from ours and is able to perceive a much wider range of frequencies. Every time Vaska or Murka tries to jump onto the table again, shout or clap your hands. Constantly creating noise in such a situation, the cat can form a well-defined conditioned reflex. The Fuzzy will associate the kitchen table with unpleasant, frightening sounds. In this case, the animal's thinking is easy to understand, it will prefer to avoid noise, simply choosing other elevated surfaces for its pastime.
If you are often not at home and the animal is left to itself, you can leave an unpleasant surprise for it on the table. Everyone knows that cats have a negative attitude to water and, in general, to any moisture. A baking sheet filled with water and left on the edge of the table will convince the cat from time to time that it is better not to jump there, but to look for drier and more comfortable places.
A sheet of foil rolled out on the surface of the table will surprise the cat with its unpleasant rustle and strengthen the conditioned reflex. Believe me, a noisy, wet, slippery and rustling place will cease to arouse interest in a pet in less than a week.
