Avoid, at all times, any form of physical punishment. It doesn't matter if your vet or "cat expert" down street suggests it; physically punishing your cat will do more harm than good. Some people feel that a "little" tap on cat's nose with your finger is an acceptable form of punishment because you are only using one finger. Humane group experts point out, however, that if you look at that finger in proportion to a cat's nose - a very sensitive body part - it would be like someone hitting you on nose with a rolling pin.
You can try gently pushing palm of your hand into face of cat. This is best used when discouraging something like biting. Don't hit cat, simply push its face back gently.
Inflicting pain has a negative affect on your relationship with your cat. Even most outgoing cat will back away from your hands, even if they are only reaching out to pet her. If your cat is shy to begin with, physical punishment can have even more deeply negative results.
Keep in mind, too, what you are communicating when you swat your cat. Swatting is one of main ways cats fight with one another. When you swing your hand at your cat, she very well may take it as a challenge to fight. Constantly provoking her can create a serious aggression problem.
