Should I discipline my kitten?
If your kitten’s miaowing all night or tearing the curtains to shreds, you’ll want to take action. But the last thing you should do is shout at them or lock them in a cage. And it goes without saying that you should never smack your pet. Punishing your kitten will only make it avoid you.
It’s also worth thinking about why your kitten is behaving badly. If it’s scratching the furniture, maybe it needs a bigger scratching post? If it’s biting your toes, it may want to play.
Instead of disciplining your kitten, give them lots of attention – and reward the behaviour you want to see.
