Our kitten Katya is starting to piss me off. She is such a good kitty, usually, however I am amiss at how to discipline her for bad behavior. Spilling glasses of water and knocking clutter off of a dresser while Presley and I are asleep is something I must make her fear.
Right now, we usually remove her from the offending environment, shout a stern “NO!”, and let her run off. Lately, this isn’t sufficient, so I’ve been giving her a little swat on her ass, but she thinks that I’m playing a game. It’s all about attention… she wants it, and knows how to get it.
So, today, I’m trying a different tactic—I’m giving her forced baths when she gives me attitude. It focuses her attention for a while on cleaning up and drying off.
How do you discipline kitty? Let me know below.
