Cute Cat Jumping On Table

This video is about Hiroshi, a baby Ginger kitten who tries to get some of his owner’s food. Due to her height, Hiroshi is having a hard time reaching the table. Poor cat, he probably wants to partake on what is available on the table!

The behavior shown by Hiroshi is tolerable at first but it can result to food aggression if his owner will not train him the do’s and don’ts of feeding time. Preparing dinner on the table can be challenging when your kitten is curious to poke into what is being served for dinner or lunch. So how do you keep your cats away from your food? What can you do to train your kittens that the food is yours and not theirs?

Compared to dogs, cats do not have the same ideas of discipline as their canine friends. But your cats can be trained on how to stop them from stealing food from the table. You have to overcome this behavior earlier to prevent your cat from developing a longstanding habit.
It is important not to reward your cat’s begging for human food. Allowing your cat at least one bite can result to more begging. If your cat insists for food and reach for the table, do not shove them off or you might harm him.

Keeping the food secure is one way to discourage your cats from sneaking on it. Cats are intelligent, so they might figure it out how to open the cupboard doors or remove food covers on the table.

You need to provide your cats with enough meal. Though feeding them twice a day is enough, there are cats that become hungry during the day. Three meals per day is advisable. If you are away from the house during daytime, providing three meals can be done by serving the first meal before you leave and giving the second and third meals as you come home and before you go to sleep, respectively.

Refrain yourself from punishing your cats when they steal food. Their behavior needs to be stopped and not to be punished.
