As anyone who is the subject of a cat, they truly believe they are the King or Queen of the household. In their minds, that means they can go anywhere the wish. We're cat people and have found an excellent way to keep them from the table kitchen counter and bookshelves. Line the edges with empty soda cans. Make sure the cans are far enough back that your Royal Highness can't see them, and just wait. Soon, you'll hear the cans and see the cat streaking for safety. It takes about a week before
your Master or Mistress gets disgusted with your stupid human tricks and will completely ignore all the things you want to protect - and keep cat hair out of. Occasionally an additional inoculation needs to be given, but this usually only requires 2-3 days.
