Sebastian, sorry "she," not he. Sometimes it takes a loooong time to unlearn a behavior. The best way to teach a new behavior, good or bad, is intermittent rewarding. That is, rewarding a behavior only sometimes. Think gambling. You don't win every time, but that makes it even more compelling/addictive. So like Russel said, if you "reward" this behavior even once, or do something that in your kitty's mind seems like a reward, you will not only have to start over again but you're probably gone a few steps backwards. Frustrating, isn't it.
