My "Fitty Pisky" Devon Rex had a passion for walking on the top of a railing in our loft, with a 14 ft. drop to the floor. He gave me fits when I caught him walking it, as I was afraid for his safety. He particularly like to do it if I was preoccupied with talking on the phone or someone else in the room, as he knew it would get my attention. The only thing that has discouraged him from doing this is applying a strip of double-sided tape
along the top of the rail. The first time he jumped up and discovered it's stickiness, he's resisted doing it again. This has been almost six months at least now.....but the tape is now less sticky because of dust and no way of wiping it off.
Another alternative would be to set up a Ssscat! automatic spray
. This works well for my cats at keeping them off kitchen counters.
