Hi there,

We have just got our first baby bengal Teddy on Christmas Eve, he's 14 weeks old and a little star. the only problem we are having is trying to keep him off the oven top, we are terrified he gets burned as it takes a while to cool after we use it. does anyone know any little tips that could help us train him to stay off it? we have tried telling him no and putting him away from it but he still tries every chance he gets. We would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

Hi Teddy26, pleased to meet you :wink:

You could place a glass chopping board over the top as soon as you have finished cooking (which I do :wink: ). Also a short squirt from a plant spray coupled with a firm 'No' should do the trick in time. You can buy a 'scccat mat' which you can place over surfaces where you don't want kitty to explore. It sends out a tiny 'shock' when the cat lands on it, and is supposed to act as a fail-safe deterrent :D

Or just shut him out of the Kitchen after you have finished cooking until the cooker top has cooled off enough?

Or let him jump and learn by experience never to do that again? :twisted:

One of mine stepped on a hot frying pan once - she hasn't done it since, although she still jumps on the worktops. My house is open plan so it's hard to exclude them on the rare occasions when I'm cooking but I do my best to keep them away from danger.

we also had that problem with our queen measles always jumping onto the halogen hob they are quite dangerous as she found out after jumping on it whilst it was still hot luckily i got her straight into cold water and there was no skin damage just one loud scream. she still hant learned so we just make sure she is nowhere near when its on.
