1. Start With Mealtimes
It can be difficult to know where to begin, especially when you’re fighting against your cat’s natural instinct. So, a good place to start is mealtimes. If your cat refuses to leave the table or the kitchen counters while you’re eating or cooking, then be strict and confine them to another room or area for the duration. Make sure your cat has everything it needs, such as water, bedding and toys, and of course a litter tray. Remember to let it out straight away once you’ve finished. If you can get into a routine of doing this, then your cat will soon learn that surfaces are out of bounds, especially at mealtimes.
