Unwanted behaviors - like jumping on counters or tearing up couches - can often be handled by covering the surface with aluminum foil or double-sided tape, Proietto added.
Aggressive behaviors, like scratching and biting during playtime, are sometimes caused by people overstimulating their cats or petting them in an uncomfortable place. But if your cat gets rough while playing and starts scratching or biting, never get rough back. Instead, give your cat a break from interacting as soon as you see these signs, Hovav advises. Leave the room until your cat calms down. This shows them that you have boundaries.
