We haven't had kittens in, oh, 18 years. And when we last had kittens we lived in an apartment--much easier to keep track of where the kittens have gone to.
Oh, and our kitchen had almost zero counter space, so keeping the kittens off the counter was easy.

But now we have lots of counter space and we haven't figured out how to encourage our cats, especially Kali, to stay off the counter. We tried yelling "no" until we learned that the cat will just associate the yelling with the person yelling; as soon as we leave, she'll just jump on the counter.
