i've had 6 month old Sammy for almost a month. rescued him from a shelter and he is spayed. but i'm at my wits end! he's a holy terror and an angel all in one... i have tried all the tricks in the book to try training methods. spraybottle, using treats as rewards for doing right, using stern, mean voice and making noise to make him get down from where i don't want him to be.... but after all this time, i swear it doesn't do any good! many times he'll get down if i clap and tell him no. but when he's feeling stubborn he will meow at me (like i'm wrong for telling HIM what to do) and won't budge. and i end up throwing him off. and like i said, i have tried treats and everything. what is his problem!? other than that, he's pretty much a good kitty. i've blown up a couple times and feel awful, so i want to make it up to him and help him with his problem. and how do i stop this talking back problem? he does it when i don't want him to bite me hard when playing. aaaarggghhhh .... please help!
