Learn about cat training!
Even though, it may seem silly to train your cat, it's really not!
There are many benefits that come with cat training. First and foremost, it is a great form of enrichment, or stimulation, for your cat! Animals in captivity miss out on all the natural enrichment the wild has to offer. Training is a good way to stimulate your cat's mind, while offering an excellent form of exercise. Secondly, and equally important, training is a wonderful way to bond with your feline friend. Your cat will associate you with treats, love, and snuggles. When you train your cat, your cat will know what you expect of them. When they behave how you wish, then they will be rewarded. Our cats know that we expect them to sit calmly with their butts flat on the floor when we are feeding them. We have also trained our cats which tall surfaces they are allowed to perch on and which ones they are not allowed to perch on. Finally, training your cat is good for their health and happiness. From an early age, we desensitized our cats to being touched and handled, focusing on their paws, toes, face, mouth, and belly. It is important that your cat is comfortable being checked over, because you are going to need to clip your cats toes, bring your cat to the vet, groom your cat, and the list goes on. With that being said, remember that your cat will also need to be comfortable in a carrier and being in a moving vehicle. Therefore, training and desensitization will reduce your cat's stress, as well as your own stress during uncomfortable situations. Cats can be quite stubborn and persistent, but a happy, well-trained kitty cat can be your most loyal companion.
