You already have some great answers here! Let's see if I can add anything!

>>Hello! I have some questions on cat behavior! Do most cats jump on countertops or tables? What are some things that can be done to stop them from doing this, and are they usually pretty sucessfull?

They will jump up because it's instinctive. There is a product called a scat mat on the market that can help, also using one of those plastic carpet runner/protector things turned upside down can discourage jumping up.

How can you trian a cat to stay away from another pet's cage (birdcage)?

This is almost impossible. You will have to locate your bird somewhere where the cats can't get at it. My sister just got a finch and she's hung it almost dead center in the middle of her living room where the cats can't jump to it!

How often do you clean your litterboxes? What type and brand of litter do you use and why? Do your litterboxes smell bad to people that aren't familiar with the smell, and what are some things that can be done to minimize odor? Also, what can you do to minimize litter spreading out out of the pan? (I've seen those mats, but do they really work, and if so which brand(s)?

Litterboxes should be cleaned daily. I prefer the clumping litter - I like the Everclean litter found at Petco. Small kittens cannot use clumping litter, however! I sort of gave up on trying to control the litter spreading - I just keep a dustpan and brush handy and sweep it up whenever I see it. I don't think my litterboxes smell bad, but then maybe my friends are being polite.

Thanks so much for your help!!
