Cats that beg

cat-on-tableWe spoke about begging dogs. Today we are going to stay on this topic only switch over to a begging cat.  You sit down to dinner and are about to bite into a delicious steak and you hear a loud “MEOW.” You look down and there’s your precious kitty looking up and begging for a taste of a meal. Many cats have developed a bad habit of begging just like dogs.  Some will even try to jump up on the counters or the table to get a bite of that delicious meal.  Don’t allow it because the behavior will continually be repeated. Remember that cats are creatures of habit they will do it everyday if they’re allowed to. Never give your cat food from the table.  Avoid leaving food on the counters and make sure that your cat eats before you do so she’s not smelling the food while she’s  hungry. If your cat insists on begging, you can lock her in another room while you eat or give her a cat toy to play with to distract her.
