Start putting him there every time he does something naughty. Say "you're going to the brig" and plop him in your hair.

u/MadSubbie 13d ago

And now your kitty knows how to get to that lovely place.

u/LostandIlluminated 13d ago

That’s exactly why mine climbs off my lap onto my computer desk when i stop petting him, my punishment is picking him up and hugging him then getting him in a comfortable position on my lap once again. He loves it

27

u/tweedyone 12d ago

I have two and they don’t both fit on my lap while I’m at my computer. So they fight viciously on the desk between my face and the monitor or on my lap. It’s like trying to work in no man’s land

u/GodzeallA 13d ago

I'd still rather do that than hit the kitty

u/MadSubbie 13d ago

There are way better ways of dealing with naughty attitude. Hitting is a big no no.

29

u/VideoUnlucky3117 13d ago

Its a "get punched in the back of the head".

Jackson Galaxy recommends for bitey cats to just pick them up and put them aside. No further interaction. Its how they'd discipline their own

21

u/Reality_Check_101 13d ago

What are your methods out of curiosity?

21

u/QuidYossarian 13d ago

A quick hissing sound using the tip of the tongue or blowing in their face works for our cats.

71

u/freedomisgreat4 13d ago edited 13d ago

You tell then no and withdraw attention from them. If that doesn’t work u can spray them lightly w water

36

u/itisntmebutmaybeitis 13d ago

Also if they're playing too rough, act up the pain. My cat is almost a year and a half old now and that was how I got him to stop being as rough as he wanted to be when wrestling.

10

u/anOddPhish 13d ago

What do you do to act up the pain? Always wondered, as I have heard about the technique before

23

u/josherman61791 13d ago

You know when Peter Griffin falls down the stairs and holds his knee saying "pfft ahhh" for half the show? Basically that

u/anOddPhish 12d ago

I've never been more compelled to get a cat 😂 Thanks for the answer!

u/SoCuteShibe 13d ago

Sounds weird but if you play it up in an... animalistic? way... Drawing your finger in close like it's injured, wincing intensely as if in agony, yelping in pain, pretending to be unable to use it/favoring it, pretending to cry... They are surprisingly responsive to it.

I forgot all about my cats biting phase until this thread because it only lasted for a short time, and I got him to stop by pretending he really injured me one time. I'm not sure cats can feel regret but if I've ever seen a regretful expression on a cat, that was the moment, lol. It was like an "oh no.. what have I done!" wide-eyed fearful look and he's been sweet as pie since that day. Well, to humans anyway.

Loudly give a startled pain noise (or just say ow lol) and immediately completely draw back from kitty & play

4

u/itisntmebutmaybeitis 13d ago

I squeak/squeal, and play up feeling wounded with my physicality - while I do that I try to gently pull away, so he kind of gets that I'm not having fun/want him to stop.

I cannot believe these suggestions! The first thing that you should try is to give the kitten something else to play with.. they're bored!

u/anon63171 13d ago

Squirt bottle, firmly but calmly tell them no, if that doesn't work loud noises with a trash bag, or a light pat on the butt. Cats do not respond to yelling and they do not respond well to negative attention.

u/Lonelybiscuit07 13d ago

Whenever my boys act up and fight i just drop something loud on the floor and watch them scatter, then distract them. Works like a charm

u/Katsnap2011 13d ago

My cat is a very smart little shit. If I have wronged him in some way, he slaps my ankles. He knows the door knob opens the door (he has a bedtime curfew of 9 pm. And yes, it is necessary for this cat) but can't quite figure out how to turn it. He gives me a lot of attitude, but cries if I leave the house for longer than five minutes. XD and god forbid I leave the bedroom. He will either stare at me or yell at me until I return, especially if it's after 8 pm.

He's a three year old asshole and I love him dearly. He's my little halloween decoration (all black kitty) and I wouldn't trade him for anything.

75

u/GodzeallA 13d ago

He will figure out that door knob one of these days. Question is, will he hide it from you so you don't know he's doing it?

74

u/Katsnap2011 13d ago

Oh absolutely not. He'll look me dead in the eye as he opens the door before running off into the darkness to cause mayhem and mischief. His name is very befitting, considering he is the incarnation of the god of mischief.

9

u/fiittzzyy 13d ago edited 11d ago

I had to change my door handle to a twisty one because one of my cats (incidentally, my all black void, Mario) learnt to jump up and put his weight on the handle and pull it down to open it, and kept letting the dogs through and they would keep eating all the food!

4

u/stardustandsunshine 12d ago

I had a dachshund that kept getting into my bedroom and I couldn't figure out how she was doing it. My roommate finally caught the cat letting her in. (I guess the cat figured she'd get rid of the dog if the dog was in my room?) I had the twisty kind, but it was an older one and kind of loose, and the cst figured out if she jumped up and hit the doorknob just right with her front paws, one of her toes would catch on the flathead screw that held the door together and the door would swing open.

How she figured this out, and how the dog figured out what she was doing, I have no idea. Gotta love teamwork.

u/BirdsLikeSka 13d ago

Marti cat is the same. Her favorite is to scream to go outside and then nap on the porch. The other day i was on the phone with my mom and baby cat fussed the whole time for no reason but attention. When I come home she runs to greet me I love her so much.

4

u/LongPorkJones 13d ago

I feel this guy's pain. Literally. Having hands this large playing with controllers meant for the average person leads to cramping, sometimes joint soreness. I was pissed when they redesigned the original Xbox controller, my friends thought I was crazy but it was the only one that has ever felt comfortable to me

My wife bought me a Switch for Christmas a few years back, I've never played it undocked because the controllers are so tiny. Hell, I barely play it at all because the controller dock is too small.

When I was younger, it wasn't a problem. But at 39, I have to take frequent breaks, and sometimes I just don't play for weeks on end to give my hands a rest. It sucks because my wife and kid love watching me play...it's like a movie where they can shout at the screen and actually make a difference.
