I HAVE A 3YRS OLD FEMALE MAINE COON CAT. SHE IS VERY LOVING AND PROTECTIVE. BUT WHAT PUZZLES ME IS THAT FOR THE PAST 6 MONTHS, SHE HAS BEEN LAYING EITHER AT THE CROWN OF MY HEAD OR ON MY HEAD AT NIGHT. SHE HAS BEEN REMOVING MY HEAD SCARF TO EITHER LICK MY HAIR OR NIBBLE ON MY HAIR. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? HOW CAN I MAKE HER STOP? MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Bob: Yes, you can keep cats from jumping and climbing on counters and furniture. If you search "counter surfing" here on catchannel, you will find at least one column I've written addressing the issue. Also, my book "Naughty No More!" has a chapter on counter surfers.

Is it realistic to think that you can stop a cat from climbing on furniture and tables? If so, what ways can be used to pursued a cat not to do these things.

Thank you.
