Train Your Cat

Cats can be trained just like dogs can.  All you need is a tasty food snack - a little moist cat food will work - and a spoon.  To teach your cat to come when called, for example, stand close to your kitty and say “come.”  Back up just one or two steps from your kitty and when your cat follows you, say “yes” and offer her a nibble of food off the spoon.  Slowly increase the distance between you and kitty as you practice.  Eventually you’ll have her coming from any room in the house!  The nice thing about teaching tricks is that once your cat learns how to learn, you can teach her just about anything.  Have fun!
