Can you discipline a cat? I've read about squirting water at them but I've also read NEVER try discipline because it will excel the problem. I've read you should let them pee on the carpet right in front of you and to do nothing because it will only add stress and that if you squirt them they will associate you with the negative. I've heard discipline is okay if you do it while you catch them in the act but never after the fact. I understand yelling is negative and water is undesired but which is it? Is throwing (not at them) something that makes a noise an option (used to do this with a dog). I'd like to let convey that I want to stop urine marking, aggression with fellow felines and other problems Perhaps these two issues have 2 answers of what to do or not do. What (if any) is an effective way to discipline?
