cats on the counter.....seekingadvice please help
I was reading Mari's "gross" post again and saw what you said about keeping your cats off the counters. When I first remodeled the kitchen the cats were afraid to jump up on the countertops. It's been about 4 months...all of a sudden, up they went. I have a small condo and I don't mind them going on the side of the counters that the sink is on. I don't do any food prep at all on that side. The side I have the range on is where I want them to stay off. What is your trick for keeping them off the countertops. I've used sticky tape and that didn't work. I don't want to use cans filled with pennies, because they will scratch my wood floors. I try to spray them with water but that only gets them down for a short time.
I am afraid that they are going to turn on my burners, the stove is turned on by touch. When I go out I have to pull the circuit breaker.
seekingadvice, you said it was easy, so what's your secret.
