cazzle. I can appriate your problem.
The darn cat dosn’t answer when you call, so what does a name matter?To save yourself a bit of embarrasment, change it…LOL
Why does PC beg, even with a full bowl? Because what you are eating is waaaay better than the kibble.I can assume you feed her table scraps or food whilst you or other humans are eating themselves otherwise she would not have this behavior.
To 86 this annoying habbit of hers, STOP feeding her table scraps, or human food of ANY kind. Eventually, and it by no means will be soon, she will learn that food time for people does not mean food time for her. We have 3 darlings ourselves, and thier silly bums WAIT untill we are finished eating to get thier bites. I’ve done my fair share of nose thumping for them to get the message, and the young ones are learning, but it takes time.Oldster Jake dosn’t bother me much whilst I eat.They do learn. it just takes a hell of alot of time, patience, and consistancy on your as well as anyone who might feed the cat, but they will learn.
As for the laying on the table problem, anytime you catch her doing that, or any other behaviour you wish to eradicate, go for the squirt bottle. It teaches them, not only that you are not happy with thier behavior, but gives you a chance to practice your aim. Nothing is more satisfying than soaking a bad kitty!
Remember, these are training tips, and with any kind of training, YOU MUST be PATIENT and CONSISTANT. My prayers are with you
