How to stop kitten from climbing the curtains?
by Brittany B
My kitten (14 weeks old) will not stop climbing the curtains. The drywall (even with anchors) cannot sustain his weight and the curtains. Please help.
I have tried everything. I removed the curtains for an entire month to allow him to age a little more (I'm not willing to do this again, they are the focal point of my bedroom and I want to enjoy being in my own room).
I have tried putting tin foil on them. I have tried using cat repellent. I have tried yelling "no."
I have tried rattling a cup with coins in it to scare him. I have tried giving him time outs outside my room each time he does it. I have tried double sided tape. None of it works.
He has a cat tree taller than I am, six feet from the curtains. He has toys galore. Is this kitten just not the cat for me? Should I surrender him to the SPCA?
