Zoe keeps testing the law of gravity. She knocks things off the kitchen table - three Brita pitchers, one blender, two lamps, one vase, one large glass bowl, two coffee cups and two drinking glasses ... all of these objects turned into shards ... my bare feet find tiny shards weeks later. She does not seem to realize that the law of gravity does not change. All the broken items, all the busted glass .... sigh ......
When we got Romeo he insisted upon being on high and would sometimes knock things off. After awhile we just took everything off the places he insisted on going. We eventually just gave up and didn't put any tchotchkes where he insisted on going. Otherwise he's a very well behaved cat.
May want to transition to hanging lamps and use straps to fasten blender to the wall. Lock all other glass things behind cabinets. "Cat-proof" you house. They are worth it. If you haven't already done this, if you have a flat screen tv sitting on top of something, you really should consider using a safety strap to make sure the cat doesn't perform a gravity experiment with it as well.
I adopted a blood donor cat after graduating from vet school. To say she had ZERO fucks to give would be a gross understatement. I tried to break her of counter surfing by placing armed mousetraps, upside down (so they make a loud noise and pop 2-3 feet into the air, NOT risking catching on the cat), all over the counters in the kitchen. The process was hell on MY nerves because at least one out of every four would go off (like a firecracker) as I set it. Damned cat used to sit there and WATCH me prepare them.
The moment that we went to bed, she would immediately jump up and tap each trap, sending it flying.
I simply learned to clean the counters BEFORE and after each use. Sigh.
At work they have to test some things by dropping them from waist high. I have been trying to get them to hire my cats. If they set them up mine will knock 'em down.
Seriously, I have a friend who had a lot of glass items on a platform under a high window. His cats would jump on that platform and walk to lay under the window and never knocked anything over. I guess this means our cats do it out of spite.
