So one of my Cats has taken to jumping up on the kitchen worktops and even the hob!!! She has never done this before but now tonight she is up there everytime I go into the kitchen. There's no door so we can't shut it off from her. Apart from the fact she almost had away with my OH's steak earlier she is in danger of being hurt, especially if she steps onto the hob when it's still hot. Is there anyway I can stop her? I am currently saying No loudly and squirting her with water. It makes her jump down but she seem's to be back up there at the first opportunity. I know you are supposed to squirt them without them realising it's you doing it but it's impossible and I'm just having to squirt her. I don't want her to become scared of me . BUT I also don't want her to end up hurt by burning her paws or getting cut by one of the sharp knives we have up there.
