I can't answer your actual question, but one thing that does work is to
make little circular loops of tape with the sticky side outward.

Thank you Mark. It sounds like loops work for you. The question I have is, if I put sticky tape -- either loops or flat -- on the counter and table top, how can I use the counter myself? If the sticky tape is all over it.

It doesn't have to be all over it, it just has to be where it'll get in
the cat's way, especially where the cat will want to jump to but can't
see it from below.

Hi Mark, thanks for the explanation...I can see this would work IF the cat were jumping from below. But my cat can see where she wants to go. She has been able to find a "path" around every form of barrier I've tried -- aluminum foil on the counter; metal backing pans blocking -- I THOUGHT -- every potential avenue of access. She was able to step over or around all that. So she'd be bound to walk around the tape loops, too. I have ordered a ssscat device. The one I bought is apparently defective, so the ssscat company is sending a replacement. I hope that will solve the problem. These are expensive.

Years ago, my sister "thought" she had succeeded in teaching her cat not
to get on the kitchen counter top. Then she glanced at the kitchen
window one day as she was returning home and saw her cat quickly jump
down from the counter. By the time she entered the house, her cat
approached her while stretching and yawning. It seems that her cat had
simply learned a way to trick her into *thinking* that my sister had
succeeded. I think my sister gave up after that and simply cleaned the
counter very well before using it to prepare food.

Simple and very effective solution. Upside down packaging tape. Then you
get to play her rescuer... "Awww, let me help remove that awful
packaging tape!"


Great idea! I'm going to put upside-down packaging tape on my
counters, my dining room table, my refrigerator, my desk, my
bookcases, my... ;-D


Also... It usually takes two or three encounters with the packaging tape,
and then it stops cold.

My impression has always been that dogs are capable of feeling guilt and
cats are not.

My wife thinks she has the cat trained to not get up on the kitchen
table, but actually she has it trained to not get up on the kitchen
table and to get off quickly when it hears somebody approaching.\

OTOH, a dog can be taught to do/not do things even when the owner is not
around - not accepting food from strangers, for instance.

Not so much guilt, but they can sense the feelings of those who love
them, and they don't like negative vibes.

Cats sense it too, but most of the time they don't care.

I have a kitchen ensuite and the main one is upstairs. I have never
had a problem with my two cats except the one off my bedroom has a
garden window, and Pookie liked to jump on the counter to access and
sleep in the window. The solution was to put a decorative screen over
the lower half of the window.

Kitty litter on the cutting board wasn't my thing.
