Cats and Aluminum Foil

Many owners use aluminum foil as a powerful training tool to teach their cats not to climb onto surfaces such as kitchen countertops or interact with specific objects like Christmas trees.

But why do cats dislike aluminum foil so much? According to experts, aluminum foil has some unique properties that make it particularly alarming to cats. When moved, folded, or stepped on, the foil emits a very distinct high-pitched sound.

The sudden and sharp noise in combination with the unusually smooth texture of aluminum foil when the cat isn’t expecting it can cause sensory overload, quickly deterring the feline from the surface in question.
