I moved with my girl, who owns a cat, and the experience has been "instructive" so far. He would wake us up every morning scratching the door, and that would make me crazy for a long time, until I decided to buy a kid's water-gun, and spray him every time he would do that. After a week, I could sleep without problems.
I have used the same method to correct some some bad habits, but now I have come across one that I am uncertain how to approach it.
Sometimes, when I am tired and I lay on the bed, he comes next to me, and lays with his belly up, to be cuddled. But when he has had enough of it, instead of just going away, he scratches me. I would like to teach him a better way to communicate "I have had enough", but I am not sure how can I achieve such goal.
Does anyone has any idea?
