We have 3 indoor cats who were getting into houseplants, countersurfing and launching into our Christmas tree. The Jumpo Trainers are allowing me to enjoy the cats without the strap on headlamp and squirt bottle counter offensive attacks at 3 AM. I let the Jumpos do their work and act like I know nothing. The cats like me again and are staying out of our stuff! Thank you. P.S. Most people would probably underestimate the number of Jumpos needed.
Follow-up email from Sherm Haworth:
The plants are easy...we put one Jumpo inside each plant and that problem is solved. Countertops are tougher. Cats have good memory and are very agile...they learn quickly where to jump and where to place their feet. The Jumpos are spaced every 3-4 inches on countertops and I change the placement every night. Putting them at angles helps take up more space. I don't have enough to handle all countertops yet. I believe the best tip for behavior mod was for me to stop stalking, chasing, yelling and squirting. If a Jumpo is set off, I calmly reset it and walk away. They are already less afraid of me and we are building loving relationships. Thanks again!
