I posted last week with the question about how to keep my kittens off of my kitchen table. Your responses to me told me that I better accept them wanting to get up on the table, but to maybe teach them not to be on the table when we are eating. My thought was to make it a dominance thing. When we are sitting at the table, the table is off limits. When we leave the table, they can get on. Does this make sense? So far I just say a firm no, and they jump off. If a firm NO doesn't work, or if they jump off and then jump back on in defiance, another NO with a quick squirt seems to work. Any advice is appreciated. I don't want to hurt my babies, but I also want to be able to eat with my hubby without being dive bombed.
