I've had my seven month old kitten for about a month now. Two days ago I got new windows put in and the screen is on the inside of the window.
My cat now climbs through the closed blinds to get behind them and climb the screen. This would be fine if he wasn't also tearing the screen.
I'm not sure how to teach him to not climb the window screen. I've tried clapping when he does it to create a loud noise, but he doesn't seem to care. I've been pulling him off and shutting him out of the room for a bit, but soon after I let him in again he's back at it.
What's the best way to get him to stop this behaviour without him hating me?
