  • Use a spray bottle. I mean on her not on the counter. It is aversion therapy.

  • ooh I met my first Mainecoon a few weeks ago at my work. I had never seen one before and I went into the cat room and saw him laying (sprawled out) in a wicker cat bed. I totally freaked out and ran out to a co worker. "OMG YOU GOTTA SEE THIS CAT!! IT'S FREAKING HUGE!!" LOL He was sweet, but for some reason he was intimidating to me at first. I was like, "Is he like part bobcat or something?! Is he gonna eat me?!" lol

  • Aweee I used to have a mainecoon.. he was the best cat ever.. not to mention biggest cat ive ever had! I have to agree with the first poster, watch that cat carefully and have a water spray bottle on hand. ;)

  • There may be something on your counter that smells like pee to your cat. Cats will pee on things with rubber backing and plastic grocery bags etc. Rubber drawer liners come to mind. If there is anything like this remove it before you clean up. The vinegar is a good idea. Cats also do not like aluminum foil. You could try laying this across your counter top until the cat is conditioned to go in the litter box.

  • Is your cat spayed?
