|Can you feed me? I'm hungry!
So due to his punk-like attitude and aforementioned fear of starving, he has a bad habit of hanging out on the kitchen counters when we're not in the room. No matter how often
We've tried the sticky paws thing which did nothing but help him shed his winter coat.
We've tried the foil and pans of water on the counter tops, but no avail.
I found a product called the SSSCat (yes, with three SSS's). it is a motion sssensor ssspray. Don't worry, it is sssafe, non-toxic and vet recommended (sssays its webpage). When it detects motion, it SSSprays a non-toxic gas and emits a loud noise.
The thing is, it appears to SSStartle and SSScare the humans more than it does the kitty.
Walk into the kitchen? SSSPRAY! and then SSSCREAM.
Open the cupboard? SSSPray! then SSScream!
Turn on the light? SSSpray! then SSScream!
Its getting old.
I'm ssstill not sssure this has sssolved the problem of my I'm-not-afraid-of-anything-but-ssstarving cat hanging out in the kitchen sssink, but judging by how high he jumps when the ssspray goes off on us, I think it might be working a little.
