We have 3 cats and they have free roam of the house. Only 1 has ever gone up on my kitchen counters and we stopped that quick with a water gun......she was an adopted cat from a family who moved. the 2 we raised from kittens were always taught to stay off the counters. The only time we restrict movement is on christmas Eve, Easter (can you imagine how much fun silver foil eggs can be to a cat?) and when we are doing work on the house and have to leave doors open. We use the laundry room/bathroom downstairs for this. Their litter boxes and food and water are in that room. Our cats are not allowed outside at all. I can not deal with the dirt and diseases they can pick up from outside.
