You do NOT hit animals, that's borderline abuse. Do you really think your cat understands that its being "disciplined"? If hitting you cat is the only way you can think of to stop it from doing something, it would be far far kinder to this cat that you claim to "love"(but abuse) to find it another home. No, you're not too mean-how can you think hitting a loving animal a fraction of your size is mean? Its abusive and cruel!
No, but if you're having to do this often, it's not such an effective way to get your message across. Depending on what your cat is doing, there are other ways - spritzing with water in the face or picking the cat up and moving him/her are good.
yes, it is mean. I've trained my cat not to do tings by simply strictly saying "no!" and putting them in their crate for a little while. But of course, I end up letting them out since they end up meowing until i do. :)
I think it's bad, but I understand why you do it. Maybe you could find something else to do to discipline he/she. That's kinda like some chick kicking a dude in the balls because he was looking at magazine with a chick on a motorcycle who is dressed slutty. :p
