Hi,
I have a Siamese kitten (6 months), who now can jump up on my dresser and dining table. My problem is this: at night, when I'm ready to go to sleep, he wakes up (from having slept through most of the the day), goes and does some stuff, then jumps up on my dresser. I wouldn't ordinarily mind, but I keep my jewlery on a bulletin board just above my dresser, and he loves to make my jewlery into toys.
I've tried spraying water in his face, to no avail. What ends up happening is I kick him out of my room for the night. I don't want to do this, I'd like him to sleep with me. But kick him out I must and therefore do.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep him off of my dresser?

Thanks,
- Ruby Tuesday

It's actually very simple. Put your jewelry in a drawer Emotion: smile

Put up some large objects or one big object that makes it so he can't sit up there. After a while, he just won't. Antoher thought is to move the jewelry.

Put your jewelry up. It's much more humane than leaving it out to tempt him, then spraying him in the face.

Give it up. Put away the jewelry. You aren't going to win this game. He now knows how to get your undivided attention. Emotion: smile

You can't keep him off of your dresser; he's a cat? There is very little you can do to keep from doing anything he likes; he's a cat. I suggest getting him a cat tree, a large one, and/or a tree with cat ornaments. Get him something he'll enjoy more than your dresser. Preferably, higher than your dresser. Then, sit back and enjoy the show.

Put your jewelry away where he cannot get to it. Put 4-6 mousetraps, set, upside-down on the dresser. Cover them with a few layers of newspaper. When he jumps up there - SNAP! - he will be scared off, and probably won't do it again. Reset the traps each night for a week or so.

Mouse traps!? With the off chance that the cat will become caught in one! Ok, I understand the newspaper and all, but EXCUSE ME! How about if we simply set bear traps for you! I'm sure you can avoid them, most of the time, anyway. If something goes wrong and you get caught in one, you won't mind, would you?
Oh yes, reset the traps each night for a week. Sooner or later the cat will learn, or be dead!
I would avoid the advice above.
"When he jumps up there - SNAP! - he will be scared off,"

Scared shitless, I'd imagine. I prefer to find ways of accomodating my friends needs without putting them at risk or making them extremly paranoid.

I don't believe in behaviour through intimidation.

Sorry, this one really *** me off,
