I love my girl, she'll be 2 in January. It was cute when she would jump on my back when she was a 4 lb kitten, but it almost 10 lbs it's quite annoying - I have scratch marks going all the way down my back when she misses or slips . Has anyone successfully gotten their sphynx to stop jumping on their back every time it's turned?

Omg that is the cutest kitty with her little feet’s in the air!

Does she jump only when you are bent over or all the time?

The short answer is no - I have no idea how you'd make her stop :oops: My boy is nearly a year old now and just over 4 kg, and he'll happily jump all over me any time the mood strikes him, which is quite often! I just make sure I keep his nails trimmed, and that way I usually avoid scratches. I don't mind his shoulder-riding though, well 9 times out of 10 anyway, and for when I don't want it, I have just learned to grow eyes in the back of my head really, and then tell him 'Nooo' and shoo him away. I've developed a 6th sense for this and I'll turn around to see him coiled and ready to leap :ROFLMAO:

@oolahappi , I have a "parrot" kitty too
He even jumped on my bsck when I scoop the litter box

I started redirecting him to his smart cat climber .
Mine is on a doorway , other members have mounted directly to the wall.

When I see him give me thst I am going to jump - I tell him "ah""" amd put s few treats onthe smart cat climber shelf for head smooches
It has helped I think because it's multilevel high .
You can try redirecting him to a spot like a chair too
