Move Over, Rover! Cats Can Learn Tricks, Too!
What's that you say? It's impossible to train a cat? Well, you know that your cat has you well trained, but you may not realize that you've been training your fancy-free feline since the day you welcomed it into the family. Does your cat zoom into the kitchen the minute the can opener begins to whirl? Does a lithe feline body wind itself around your legs every time you pull out the grooming comb? Can you coax your sweet kitty across a room and into your lap by calling it's name? These simple behaviors offer proof that you have trained your cat!
Cats enjoy the opportunity to be in the spotlight. While not every cat will take to learning tricks, most will thrive on the extra attention and love you'll shower on them during the training sessions. And whether you want to teach you cat to perform classic canine tricks like sitting up and fetching, to walk on a leash, or simply to come when called, Arden Moore's simple and encouraging instructions will show you how. You'll have your cat performing like a stage star in no time at all!
