How do I correct a kitty?

Time Out for Kitty

To stop Kitty`s bad behaviour in the house, start by picking Kitty up and confining him for 15 minutes. This could be in the bathroom, a closet, or even outside. When Kitty returns, if the bad behaviour continues, confine Kitty in his Time Out place 30 minutes.
It is the consistency and duration that will change Kitty`s heart in doing bad things while in the house.
Follow this with Postive Reinforcement for Good Behaviors such as treats, kind words and affection.
