Never use Corrective Measures if you don't actually catch Kitty in the act of misbehaving. Using a Corrective Measure after the fact will not stop the unwanted behavior, because Kitty doesn't associate the Corrective Measure with the unwanted behavior problem. Kitty will just be confused & stressed out if corrected after the fact, and will just cause further cat behavior problems.
