How do you keep a kitten out of the trash can???

My cat is great, he doesn't chew or scratch (yet) or anything but he does have a bad habit of jumping in the trash and a sharp no, or tappin him doesn't seem to do anything. Are their any sprays or something that might help that are safe to use?

My gut reaction was also to "get a trash can with a lid" (like Nikki B. wrote). Chetzer is my only "dumpster diver" and will take things out of the garbage cans that don't have lids on. There usually isn't anything in these uncovered cans that should interest him, but I'm more careful now that I know he will take plastic wrappers from DVD covers, etc.

I agree with Nikki B. that's what worked for me.

My suggestions are to either get a covered trashcan or try storing the trash can in a cabinet or pantry.
