how do i keep my new kitten out of the kitchen. i really can't stand the thought of him in there, but he does have free reign over the entire house. i have tried clapping loudly, but he just ignores me. what do i do next?
Keeping a cat out of an entire room without a door, is asking the impossible. Counters, refrigerators, etc maybe. If it is just the counters you are worried about, then usually lots of water on the counters or tin cans with rocks usually do the trick. But to keep kitty out of the entire kitchen, you may need a door to close.
