Cat jumping on table when not at home...
Reeses (my 8 month old cat) is well-behaved normally. However, when I'm not at home, she will get on top of my couch via jumping on my end tables that are on either side of the couch. She sometimes gets down by the same method.
This is bad because she shouldn't be on any kind of surface where I keep cups, things, etc., but worse is lately she's been knocking down my lamp on the end table, which is hitting the wall and scratching the paint, not to mention damaging the lamp shade.
I don't know how to prevent her from doing this. She is my first cat (pet at that), but nothing I can logically think of would deter her. Help?
