Sometimes cats do things we don’t like. The first thing we need to learn before we try to “correct” these annoying behaviors is that they are all motivated by natural feline instincts. Cats love to play. Provide your cat with plenty of toys and spend some time every day throwing a ball or crumpled up piece of paper for your cat to chase.

Redirecting your cat to perform natural behaviors where and when you feel is appropriate is the best way to deal with these problems. However, sometimes you may also need to let your cat know that the behavior is not acceptable.
