Keeping Cat Off Coffee Table?

My 1 year old, male Siamese, strictly indoor cat keeps jumping on my coffee table and knocking cups with fluids in them over. No matter what I do he keeps doing it. I do not want to lock him in the cat room at night because then he will scratch on the carpet and ruin the carpet. When he knocks cups over he ruins any papers that are on the table or electronics. I do not want any harsh chemicals on my coffee table or anywhere in the house to deter him from any where because I have children in the house and another cat that is very well behaved and doesn't do this and I also have a dog. I was also wondering how to get the ammonia smell out of my carpets and clothes because before I got him fixed he would mark his spots on my clothes and carpets. Home remedies please.

Nature's miracle carpet shampoo in a shampooer should get the smell out.
As for the coffee table, start using travel coffee cups with closable lids. You have an active, intelligent, personally breed of cat and expecting him to stay off the coffee table is unreasonable.

OK. so i cant afford to use coffee mugs instead of our cups so pretty much what you telling me is that there is no way to stop this? but my other cat used to do and now she doesnt anymore and she also dont get on the coffee table anymore either and what can i do about my clothes that is on my laundry basket that he pees on and i cant afford to buy new clothes cuz i am on a fixed income and only have enough money for rent and to feed and keep their boxes clean.


and i will for sure have to look around for the Nature's Miracle Carpet Cleaner. Can i purchase that at my local wal-mart?

Siamese are high energy cats and can be demanding as far as attention is concerned. He may be knocking over cups because he's noticed it gets him attention. He may also just be restless and moving around. Your other cat is probably more docile and less energetic.

Siamese are great jumpers and love heights. Do you have a tall cat tree where he can look out a window? He may rather do that than bother you. Obviously, don't leave cups out at night and try to remember to straighten up papers at night. I use a file basket to contain papers and mail.


I dIdn't know he was still peeing on your clothes. You didn't mention that at first.
You have two cats. Do you have two litterboxes in separate rooms?
This peeing could be territorial behavior.
It could also be frustrated behavior due to boredom or lack of exercise. Siamese can often be taught to play fetch or walk on a leash. They require more exercise than typical cats.

Siamese should respond well to training. Have you tried training the command "down" like you would for a dog, using treats?

Nature's Miracle products are available at PetSmart.
