    Cats are just going to be cats. You have to put shit away and close doors to keep them out of trouble. They'll knock shit over to get your attention and the only way you get them to stop doing that, or anything to get your attention, is o ignore them.

    >But how do I get it to stop X?
    Make it not want to do that. What you do depends on what behavior you want to stop.
    Jumping on tables? Aluminum foil makes it scary. Biting cables? Apple spray makes them taste awful.

    Spray bottle and loud noises, but only if you catch them in the act. If you delay by so much as a second they will rationalize the fuck out of what they were doing and assume you are an asshole for no reason.

    Seems retarded but the result is a docile cat that that actively seeks you out for affection, I don't know why this happens but the cat in question was female.

    Sure, I just don't see that as a possibility because it's so fantastically rare over here. But even in those cases, wrestling the dog to the ground and growling at it will likely result in better outcomes than "punishing it", whatever that may mean.

    >People with triple digit IQ scores are beginning to accept that there is no right way to punish a dog unless it is an emergency
    It's not really about emergency, it's about immediacy. And the punishment should not be painful, just uncomfortable and translated to dog-language - such as grabbing the scruff of the neck of and towering over a dog that really fucks up such as snapping after after or attempting to chase a kid running by. That's the most severe you should ever have to get with a normal dog. With a retard dog taken over from a terrible owner you might need to do the same while pushing it over and growling in it's face.
    With a well adjusted one, just calling "no, dogname" and standing a little stiff and straight is enough. Then you relax and give it some praise when it relents.

      Not him but you can take any breed of dog and mistreat it (as in torture) so it goes mental and will bite, to varying degrees

    Cats are like this because they literally never ever do anything wrong, according to cats. You can still train them though, but not with punishment or any kind of disciplinary action. Cats are actually too smart for punishment to have any effect on their behaviour

    Toxoplasmosis is largely a meme and like most cat-obsessed gays you vastly overestimate its transmission rate. as long as you don't literally eat the cat's shit, you're not going to get it. and i know you probably have dreams of cat owners eating cat shit, but sadly that's not the reality in most of the western world.

      Yeah cat owners don't eat cat shit they just let their cat walk all over the counters and tables with their shit covered paws. Then cat owners scoop up their shit and all the shit dust flies all over their room covering every surface.
      But they don't eat cat shit, nope!

        Cats always wash their paws after using the toilet, I can't say any about cat fecal dust in the house because it's a bit too preposterous of an accusation

    you can't really. they're too dumb for it. if you don't catch them immediately in the act and then they see you get pissed off over it, then their brain isn't going to register it. yelling at them 6 hours after they shit on your pillow won't do anything, they'll just see you're mad and won't know why.

      There is no way to punish a cat. Not even if you catch them in the act.
      A cat jumps on the counter. You spot and immediatly punish (yell, hit, spray water, chase off, etc). The cat does not connect the punishment to the act of going on the counter. It connects you coming into the room and punishing it for no reason.
      Evidence of this is the fact that the cat will continue to go on the counter. It does not connect going on the counter as bad. It will eventually immediately jump off the counter when it sees you enter the room, because it learned that when you come in and it is up there you hurt it. But the cat will not stop going on the counter.
      If you put something up there environmentally that the cat does not like it will see no point in going on the counter. OR will find a way around the thing it does not like and still go on the counter.
      Even then, if you try putting aluminum foil on the counter and the cat gets spooked by the foil when it jumps up it will stop going on the counter for X amount of days. But it will attempt again and when it finds no foil it will continue to go onto the counter.

      This is why cats are frustrating to deal with. Also why cat hags just say to let it do what it wants because it's a cat. It's because it is a cat and will do what it wants.

        Can you explain this, then?
        >making a soup
        >needs to cook for 3 hours
        >cat explores the kitchen counter
        >whiskers get singed from heat
        >never ever ever goes back onto the kitchen counter
        That happened five years ago and to this day, my cat refuses to go on the kitchen counter.

          it was a terrible enough experience
          but you would not be able to deliberately recreate it with another cat or even same cat and different counter

            Of course he would be able to recreate it. As long as the cat got its whiskers singed on its own and learned the place was dangerous.

            If he went around the house with a blowtorch singing cats' whiskers though they would just conclude HE is dangerous.

            Yeah I'm thinking my cat is a scaredy-cat with an excellent memory.

            >sliding glass door to the garden
            >one (1) time two years ago, neighbor's dog gets into the garden
            >door is closed but the dog enthusiastically barks at my cat
            And now my cat refuses to go anywhere near the sliding glass door. He runs through the living room (where the door is) like it's a sea of lava.

        i don't know man. my cat is a random stray cat that gave birth in my basement. we took care of it and she has been living with us for years. she s very smart. when she does go up on the counter (only when there's raw fish meat or smthn laying around ) and sees me, i just have to move my hand a bit or look at her and she goes down. i non verbally comunicate with her.
        i dunno if this is a common thing with cats but she also knows how to use the toilet. when she can't go outside at night in winter because she would freeze to death she goes to the toilet bowl and pisses there lmao. it's all in the eyes man i tell you
