Discipline for your cat – never hit or punish – if he’s good reward him with a treat or cat toy.

cat-playing-with-toysDo not ever hit or punish your cat if he misbehaves. You will only teach him to fear you. You can train your and keep him out of trouble.  Since cats hate to be surprised, you can use water bottles, clapping, hissing or some other sound to discourage bad behavior. You must do it as soon as your cat starts this behavior. I usually clap loudly and this usually stops behavior such as scratching in inappropriate places.  If your cat bites, try putting the palm of your hand in the cats face and gently push. Accompany this with a “no.”!!!

Make certain behaviors impossible for a cat. Keep food in containers, keep breakable or dangerous items out of reach and make sure that heavy objects are secure on bookshelves or in closets.  You may try looking for childproofing objects and think of how to apply them to your cat.  If you’re defrosting meat do not leave it on the counter. Put it in the oven or keep it in the refrigerator. You will have the most success training your cat when he’s young. If he behaves well, give him at cat toy or cat treat!
