|It can be really irritating to have a cat who insists on jumping up on your kitchen counters and trying to get at the food you’re cooking.
If he does it when you’re in the kitchen preparing food, you may be able to discourage him by saying “no” very sharply and loudly while clapping your hands together to drive him off. Make sure you are not feeding him little snacks while you’re cooking, because that simply teaches him to jump and beg.
