10. Creating lots of loud sounds
Cats have extraordinary senses, so things like loud sounds can make them get freaked out quite easily. If you shout, bang things around or slam doors, it is going to upset them even if they aren’t the reason for doing it.
9. Admonishing your cat
Even if you are trying to teach your cat not to do something you don’t like or if you want him to learn anything, admonishing him isn’t going to work to make him to it. Yelling, scolding, shaking your finger, etc., isn’t something cats will listen to at all. This sort of thing just makes cats confused and it frightens them. Instead, guide them gently and try giving them some treats or nice pets and rubs if they do what you want them to do.
