Cats are very curious creatures and they want to see what's going on when you are working on the counter from the floor they want to be by you and where the action is. Sometime they seek out counters to avoid interaction with other pets and people. Don't punish your cat, reward appropriate activities, play with your cat every day.
If other pets or small humans spend a lot of time on the floor, your cat may seek out your counters to avoid interaction with them. They may also find out that food scraps and crumbs are often left on your table and counter, leading to “counter-surfing” behavior.
