Lol train I cat when you find out let me know bc I truly want to see it my cat still hides behind the couch n when I walk by he clings on to my pants legs or just my legs n he is 7 so yea let me know when u find out n spraying water just pissed mine off n he would do more things like when I'm sleeping think my feet was a ball for him hitting me with claws n all idk my cat might need a priest or something I think he is the devil sometimes the best part is when he actually wants loving and then all of a sudden doesn't anymore he tries to bite me lol crazy old cat but he hasn't changed since he was a kitten
When your cat does something wrong, don't punish it. A stern no and moving it to the area were it is allowed to do those things will work better than scaring it. For example: if your cat scratches on furniture bring your cat to its scratching post. Every single time you catch your cat doing it. Eventually your cat will associate the scratching and you moving it with what it is supposed to do: scratch only the scratching post. Good luck and remember to be patient with your cat! Things take time.
