But I've never seen how well it can work.  LOL

Lyric's doctor recommended tinfoil for keeping the cats out of the crib and bassinet. It didn't work for us. Curry just jumped in and  curled up on the tin foil. Silly Kitty.

That's funny.  I guess some cats just don't mind the noise!  I'm pretty sure my Isis wouldn't care about it at this point, simply because she's deaf.  ;)

Heh, I tried to use tinfoil to deter my previous kitty from inappropriately eliminating. She just peed on it, and in her bowls, and around her box.... she was a very naughty kitty. :doh:

I have used the tin foil and it helped somewhat. I have also tried double sided tape and it has always worked in the areas I've put it. They hate to step on anything sticky or at least mine did.

Yup, double sided sticky tape, or duct tape, sticky side up usually works for me.  ;)

My newest cat, Jackson, got up on the counters with tinfoil, ripped it into a million pieces and then laid on them. :-\
