Step 1: Stock up on treats Stock up on treats: The first rule of cat training is that Kitty isn't going to do a darn thing you say unless you reward her with something tasty. Step 2: Be consistent Be consistent. If you don't want your cat sleeping with you, then you're going to have to put up with several sleepless nights listening to her pathetic mewling until she learns that you are immune to her ploys for pity. Step 3: Get a water bottle Fill a spray bottle with water and give her a little squirt when she's misbehaving. The key is to spray her only when you catch her in _the act_. Otherwise, she'll just think you're sadistic. Step 4: Redirect her Redirect your cat when she's tearing up your furniture by picking her up and placing her paws on a scratching post. Give her a treat if she starts pawing it. Tip Train a cat to stay off your furniture by placing bubble wrap on it; the loud noise will frighten her off. In the unlikely event she enjoys the popping noises her claws make, try sticky paper or aluminum foil. Step 5: Give Kitty quality time Give your cat quality time each and every day. Cats mostly get into mischief when they're bored and/or angry with you for ignoring them. Give them plenty of attention, and they won't try to get it by chewing up your favorite slingbacks. Did You Know? Inappropriate elimination (that is, not using the litter box) is the most frequent complaint of cat owners.
