If you want your pet to show you respect, you must set clear boundaries for what is and is not acceptable. If you don’t set that early on, cats will pick up on it and exploit it. These beasts are cunning and ferocious, to say the least!
We can tell the cat is not allowed on the counters just by looking at it, but it is bravely pushing its boundaries. We can also guarantee that while it’s alone, it’s completely focused on kicking things around and breaking things. However, nobody could get angry at this little fuzzball. Just look at it testing its human’s patience to see what it can and cannot get away with!
