The kitchen counter is one of the most exhilarating and hazardous places in our home.
Our cats instinctively drawn to high places due to their innate climbing and agile nature. Cats feel most safe and secure when observing, resting, and sleeping from a high observation point.
Though it may drive us crazy and unhygienic, from our felines point of view, it’s a natural behaviour to jump or climb places that are considered off limits to us.
If you decide your cat isn’t allowed on benches or tables, the counter must become a surface your kitty does not want to explore.
Follow these guidelines written for All About Cats to resolve counter jumping behaviour.
