Well I for my cat have said no, then I show him the way to the right until it was right. I would give it a treat when he got it right.

  • What do you train a kitten is not to say it, not necessarily what to do. So when you catch the little rascals do something that you would not want them (eg, clawing the sofa, or biting furniture) just get a spray bottle, tell them no, and give them a little squirt. It may take time for them to get used to not, but if you continue with the squirt, they will understand.

  • I widely accepted method is also used successfully by myself is the method “squirt bottle” training. I filled a bottle with clean water spritzer and give them a quick and sqiurt a “no” when they behave inappropriately. It worked fine for all three of my cats and cats before them.

  • We tried the “no” thing and our kitten is a little more stubborn, we finally had to use a squirt bottle. It works something is always bad sometimes, but when you lift the bottle, it stops. We do not even have to squirt him more. plus it works on our dog. he knows he’s bad, it just cintinues to do anyway. I guess it’s a bit like children.

  • It would be helpful if you indicated that the behavior is inappropriate, such as approaches diffèrent.Si the kitten is just being a kitten, if you want to discourage them if they get into trouble. But if they do something inappropriate, such as biting or scratching, then you need to former.Le first type of behavior they will grow out of, and this one you need to train them not faire.Des things like climbing on the counters can be countered by a vaporizer. Trying to mount your legs with a gentle tap on the nose and the word NO! With scratching, you take them for a scratching post or pad, and when they scratch, reward with a treat will strengthen what you want that they do.

  • Kittens that nudges the wrong place need to be watched and you can tell most of the time when they must go. Gently and get them into the box. Sometimes multiple boxes are necessary because they play and wait too long to get there. If they go in the wrong place to clean it immediately or they will return. I use water on my counter and cabinets and shake a few drops in their face they get the right cabinet and learn the movement means flicking out. If they grab your hand or arm just crying ouch ouch ouch. They seem to understand and let go. I also use bait and switch. If they want to play bitesy I can offer them a puppy chewing on the book instead of my hand.

  • You can get good information at: and article reading Dr. John Hovfe titled “Squirt Bottles, Punishment and cat behavior.” I’m getting confused here with the thought across the wet, bedraggled kittens whose owners believe in a bottle be-all and end all in the formation of cat.

  • First, talk to your vet and make sure that what you are trying to train them to do / not do is the right age! He / she can also give you some understanding and understand why they are undesirable behaviors. Always ensure that there is no medical reason behind the behavior. A perfect example is the cat urinating outside the litter. This is often due to a urinary tract infection and cat owners often confuse uneducated as bad behavior. No matter how many times your stake in your cat’s litter box, if it’s a medical reason, your method will not be met any results. So check with your vet first. Breeders can also be a good source of information. On spraying with a water bottle, it can work, but there is necessarily negative to it. Some long-haired cats can not even feel the water. For cats, you will kill any chance of enjoying your cats bathtime (some cats like baths when done correctly) and this can be a serious problem later in life when they can not wash more. Also, if they know you are the one who press them, they learn not to do the behavior when you are there – and you want the behavior to stop all the time, not just when you are in sight. So look for alternatives to their pulvĂ©risation.Si you want them on your counters, removing any reason for them to be up there. Do not feed on or near the table so they will not find food there. Keep anyting that looks fun to play with the eye until they learn that the meter is off limits. You can also try to put a product called “Sticky Paws’ on anything you do not want your cat to the touch. Cats hate sticky surfaces, and avoid them. Do not use anything sticky just, that some substances can harm (or kill) your cat. Sticky Paws is perfect to teach them not to scratch the drapes furniture uphill, or walking on the counters and it does not obstruct their sweat glands are in their pattes.Ne never hit a cat! It does not work and could traumatize them. If you want to simulate how mother cats kittens not teaching, it is a soft touch nose with a harsh voice, “no.” Do not hit their noses, just touch a split second. This is the equilavent a spanking. Remember that everything you take, you should replace it with a socket apporpriate. If the scratch is the problem, resign yourself that you will not be able to prevent scratching. Thus, scratching posts available. If getting your meter is the problem, invest in a cat tree or other means for them to be on top. Cats like the height in an attempt to keep them on the floor is almost inutile.Et not “forget positive reinforcement. Treats go a long way to training. Think of your kitten as a toddler. Are they more likely to avoid bad behavior for fear of punishment, or to make a good behavior to the reward they know they will get? I also recommend a company called Cat Connection for more information . Their website is They have information on sticky paws, a cat care section of their website and a newsletter that I recommend from personal experience.

  • Cats respond to rewards or corruption very well. This is how they learn basic stuff. In terms of praise, affection pats, rubs and a loving voice and food of course, they can learn what you want them to learn quickly and well done. They too, have natural instincts and behaviors that help them do the stuff. At times, you want to use these instincts and also help them in their training.
