Is there anything more cute + frustrating than our little cats?

The scratching, the biting, the peeing on soft things… ugh!

@aceengel on TikTok has some fantastic advice and great frame of reference to impart!

And then like out of a kitty Super Bowl video, she goes on to provide many real-world tips to help curb their less-than-ideal behavior.

With a handful of loving, playful cats crawling all over her and getting into the frame.

Her overarching suggestion: positive reinforcement!

She explains that kittens roughly have the intelligence of a 1 year old child, and adult cats roughly equate to a 3 year old child.

She relays a plethora of tips!

Cats who are always on the counter? A cat tree that’s near that counter + positive reinforcement.

She explains that they see us in a certain space, and they want to be where the action is.

She also has great advice for cats who scratch a lot, and how to get them to use the scratching post!

Check out the full video here for all that info!


You can teach your cat to stop being a meniace, but its all about the WAY you do it to get results. Throw away the spray bottle, because its never going to work. Positive reinforcement and redirection is the way to go! #catrescue #cattips #cattraining #catownertips #petangel #catscratching #cats

With so many potential behavioral or even medical issues it can be a bit overwhelming.

But we sure are thankful for videos like this.

I don’t know about you but I’m over here taking notes.
