*****KatKwiz! - July 25 - let's squirt the kitty*****

post #1 of 10

In the picture below I am having a discussion with Persi. I have told him a million times to never get on the dinette table. He is arguing with me that he is NOT on the dinette table and in fact is being very careful not to be, even his tail. Note how intent he is in listening to me threaten him.

What is the number one reason cited for NOT squirting him?

As always, the answer must come from TCS but do NOT tell where you found the answer.

This negative reinforcement can possibly associate you, the cat owner, with the punishment.

I would pick the main reason as being the possibility of the cat getting an ear infetion from the water getting in there.

I suggest strongly that you book a trip to Las Vegas ASAP!

CONGRATULATIONS, AGAIN!

Answer: Select Cat Behavior above and look for an appropriate article.
In this case that would be: Get Off! There you will find:

#1 reason for not squirting Persi:

Because [technically] he's not on the table...

Is there a "no fruit bowl" rule? If so I wanna see it in writing! I mean how was he supposed to know that he couldnt sit on the oranges if nobody told him before?

...and hey! Who put those oranges in his bed anyway???

My cats love to sleep in any kind of basket there is so I agree! If you put that basket there you're asking for him to make a nest!

Hey, wait just a minute here. Are you suggesting that the cat I brush, comb, and clean his eyes every day could be dirty? Are you suggesting the guy that gets his regular Sunday go to meeting bath could somehow infect the fruit? I guess that is why I give him free range of the entire house including the counters, tables, and sinks. I am such a good daddy, can you imagine what I would have let my own kids get away with?
