I have had my kitten Angie since May of last year. She was only 3 weeks old when I rescued her and had to bottle feed her, since she hadn't been weaned yet. Well, she is perfectly fine and active and is a pleasure to have around. Except for one problem......
Lately, I have had trouble with her jumping on my bed, nightstand, phone table, and knocking over my laundry basket in my bedroom at night. I have tried closing the door, but she recently figured out how to open the doorknob by jumping and moving it until it opens the door. Its really getting irritating when I wake up to her playing with some of my books, medical supplies, and anythign else that may be out.
Tonight, she was the worst! She managed to get in my bedroom and jumped on my bed, got under the covers, and started to play under the covers. As a result, she clawed up the air mattress pad I have for pressure sore prevention! It won't hold any air anymore, despite me trying to fix it with duct tape and tacky glue.
Does anyone have any tricks I can use to keep her from doing this stuff? I don't want to declaw her and I trim her nails every other week. I have also been shaking a can full of pennies to get her down from the furniture. She will get down, but a couple minutes later, she will be right back up there.
