I want to put up a curtain in our kitchen to keep the cats off of the
countertop. I'm planning to use thin nylon net and the curved thin pipes for
a standalone tub shower curtain. I don't think this can be the best way ...
I probably should post a drawing?
First thing I did when I moved in with my husband was train his cat to
stay off kitchen counters and dining table. Yuck! Sweet old cat didn't
like to be scolded. He wouldn't eat anything other than cat food unless
we left out the butter or a dish with apple pie on it :o)
Cats like for you to think they cannot be trained, but they can.
People use a squirt bottle to discourage cats. Just spray them in the
face once. After that you will only have to reach for it. of course,
that only works when you are there.
You can also put a strip of aluminum foil on the counter edge. The
cats don't like it for some reason.
there are also electric shock pads which you covers the edge of the
counter. gives them a mild shock when they jump on it. I haven't used
this myself but I bet it would be effective.
They can be trained as to where to go and not go. They don't like getting
their ass chewed out. I have a couple that are allowed on the bathroom
sinks only as they like to take a drink from running water. I'm good with
that. After all, my hair gets there plenty. They never go on the counter
Many many many moons ago when first born was expected the crib was set up
a month ahead. Cats HAVE to know every inch of their environment. They
jumped in to look. I let them get their map updated.
In this instance the ass chewing didn't go over 100%. Could tell they
were in there when returning home. So I bought a dozen mouse traps. Glued
a small piece of wood where the bar hits the base when sprung to keep it
from doing actual damage. Set them up in the crib. Critters couldn't see
in the crib until landing of course. First couple of days you would hear
the snapping and turbo kitty coming out of the room. LMAO! Then of course
come home and find them snapped. They became trained.
