Cat Training: Behavioral Modification Training
TIP: Be sure your home accommodates your cat’s needs, by creating an environment that provides a natural lifestyle for your cat.
This involves learning to read your cat’s “body language” and requires consistency, lots of love and plenty of patience. For most cats, training is well worth the effort and helps prevent many behavioral problems from developing later in life.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are lucky enough to start out with a kitten, teaching her good habits from day one is your best bet. The minute she walks through your door, by giving her a toy to play with, a post to scratch and a litter box to use, you are teaching her what is appropriate to play with and scratch and where it’s acceptable for her to do her business.
Using positive reinforcement helps achieve the best results.
