If your cat is misbehaving, you might think you can discipline your cat to make it behave appropriately. Ha! Cats will do what they want regardless of what you want. The sooner you understand this, the happier everyone will be.

However if you insist on trying to discipline a cat, you can start by identifying what your cat is doing and trying to figure out why. For example, if a cat climbs on furniture and drapes, that means it likely wants a scratching post it can climb. By studying a cat’s behavior, you can better know why your cat is misbehaving so you can feel utterly helpless to do anything about it, which is what owning a cat is all about.
