Whenever Chase gets up on the counter — a frequent occurence — we tell him to get down. He’s surprisingly obedient for a cat.
The trick is to say, “Get down, Chase,” while making a downward gesture with your arm. After saying, “Get down” a few times, he finally jumps down.
This morning when I was telling Chase to get down, Alice tried to help from her high chair. She said “Dow!” while waving her arms. Once Chase finally jumped down to the floor, Alice clapped for him.
