9. Admonishing your cat
Even if you are trying to teach your cat not to do something you don’t like or if you want him to learn anything, admonishing him isn’t going to work to make him to it.
Yelling, scolding, shaking your finger, etc., isn’t something cats will listen to at all. This sort of thing just makes cats confused and it frightens them. Instead, guide them gently and try giving them some treats or nice pets and rubs if they do what you want them to do.
