    i have three kittens who are 9 weeks old. Help! Until I can slowly introduce them to my older resident cats I am only allowing them in part of the house. I also have the mother cat. They are at the age where they are starting to grab onto my sheer curtains and jumping on top of bureaus etc. what’s the best way to try and train them to stay off. I know soon they will be learning to jump on kitchen counters, which is a complete no-no for me. My older cats are better behaved....
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Do your kittens have access to scratching posts and cat trees? Kittens have a lot of energy and they need to scratch and climb, so if they don’t have an outlet for that, they will use your furniture.

    I do have a scratching post in one room, guess I should get a couple more. They do have a lot of energy. Lol

    Thanks
