As numerous hilarious Internet videos show, our cats seem to love to knock things off high places. Why do they engage in this funny — but also sometimes annoying or even dangerous behavior?


There are actually a few reasons why cats knock things over.

*It’s Prey Instinct.

*It’s Playtime.

*It’s an Attention-Grabbing Behavior.

So, How Do You Stop Cats From Knocking Things Over?

1. Remove the temptation to knock things over.

The easy solution is to not leave anything on your desk, shelf, table, etc., that is light enough to be batted around and knocked over. Learn to live a minimalist life. Easier said than done, however! While you work on a solution for this issue, I do advise not leaving anything that is fragile on your table or shelves. If the problem area is limited to a single room, you can always try just closing the door and keeping kitty out.

2. Make sure your cat’s needs are met.

Don't let your kitty's water bowl get too empty, feed him on a pretty regular schedule and keep those litter boxes scooped!


3. Make sure your cat isn’t bored.

To help with boredom, keep your cat's toys in rotation so he regularly has "new"playthings. Have you tried tumbler feeders? You place treats inside the tumbler toy and the cat has to work to release the goody. It's also a good idea to schedule playtime with your kitty. What a great way to release some energy and have fun after a long day of work!
