Cat training can be incredibly stressful for both pet and owner. It’s important that as you practice the exercises laid out on this site that you take it easy! Keeping it light and informal has a few benefits.
First of all, it’s more fun. This is true for both you and your little pet. Although the end goal is to have a trained cat, we want to have fun along the way. What’s the point of owning an obedient animal if you don’t even get along with it.
Furthermore, the cat will actually learn more effectively if you’re not too serious. Cat’s aren’t easily stressed but they do lose interest in things quite quickly. If you push your little guy too hard too fast, chances are he’ll just tune you out. This, again, is super frustrating for you and your pet.

My PERSIAN boy loved DA BIRD interactive yoy and show me the kitten or cat that doesn’t. Any
feather toy that we played fetch with, he never tired though I did. LASER toy the cheaper one is o.k.
A flashlight on off is great also I used a make-up mirror trained on walls, ceiling.CAT DANCER is
fun. Any crinkle toy for some, left my cat uninterested.Balls balls balls especially lightweight kind.
Every kitty is an individual so try various toys, don’t neglect choo choo trains made from small cartons taped together, rolled up foil balls, and paper bags left open on floor.The cartons were his #1 favorite as a kitten. He even napped in one.Have fun together, the best therapy is your wonderfully entertaining and appreciative furry one.
my cat sleeps in an outdoor box with a pillow and a blanket.
she knows she is not allowed in the house but tries to anyway.
she is totally bored with her toys,
