gingers amazing (evil) new trick.

Ginger has a new trick.
I did not teach her the trick.
She jumps on the kitchen chair and then jumps on the table and drinks the milk from the cereal bowls.
She is so annoying and evil.

YY has attempted that in the past but I will not allow her to do it. Siamese kitties are lactose intolerant so milk is not on her menu. I feed her and the foster kitties first so they are not too interested in my menu when I eat.

I dont allow my cats on the eating surfaces, counters, tables, side tables, even the desk is off limits.

I trained them as tiny kittens that if they went there they would get squirted with water.


only table like surface they may go on is the dressers in the bedrooms.

even tho cats are very clean kritters, im a clean kritter and I would never walk on eating surfaces hehe, so i dont let them.

a spray bottle worked wonders.

im not trying to be rude here, but it may come off as rude so I apologiese in advance if it sounds rude.

Cats will do what you allow them to do. and cats can be stubborn. when ti comes to counter tops and stuff for me it seems either I allow them to do it, or i dont, there is no grey area.

if my cats dont listen, and when they were kittens they occasionally diddnt, I would go and physically pick them up and put them in another room. Or make a loud noise and startle them away from the counter top

I know many people who are content with their cats on the counter, Im honestly not one of them, I dont beleive my pets should be on eating surfaces, as well as I dont want them eating food that may not be good for them.


thats jsut my opinion

Cats can be taught to stay off counters, but it's hard repetitive work, and don't foget they are smart so they may try to find a way around it. Jasmine we taught to stay off the counters, whenever we saw her on a counter we would give a firm no and take her off and place her on the floor. She never gets on a counter when anyone is around, but if you get up in the middle of the night to get something like a drink you can sometimes catch her up on the bar or table. We correct her then too, but how often can you really catch her doing that at night. but at least she isn't eating our cereal. It takes time and patients but it can be done.

Ha,ha that's funny! My granddoggie Kita, is a JRT and she also is able to jump onto anything,especially if there is something edible around.
Ginger is normally a typical name for an orange Tabby,hence the assumption she was a cat here's a pic of my only grandchild!!!!
