Keep your cat off the counter

Provide alternatives

Give your cat plenty of other places to climb and explore, such as cat trees, scratching posts, and window perches.

Keep the counter clean

Cats don't like to be in dirty places, so make sure to wipe down the counter regularly with a cleaner that is safe for cats.

Use deterrents

There are a number of products available that can help deter cats from jumping on counters. 

Train your cat

You can train your cat to stay off the counter using positive reinforcement.

Be consistent

It's important to be consistent with your training. If you don't consistently enforce the rules, your cat will learn that they can get away with jumping on the counter.

Be patient

It may take some time and effort to train your cat to stay off the counter. Be patient and consistent, and eventually your cat will learn the rules.

Consult a veterinarian

If you're having trouble training your cat to stay off the counter, you may want to consult with a veterinarian or animal behaviorist.
