Per another cat owner’s request, some video images of the very basics of training cats. Food may be replaced by a key sound (clicker), praise or cuddles, depending on the cat and the environment in which the training will be used.
Training cats this way, using a system of rewards, can help redirect unwanted behaviors, and replace them with desired behaviors. In this system, the cat is never (!!!) punished for unwanted behaviors, just rewarded for desired behaviors. Cats learn quicker by positive reinforcement.
The exercize keeps the cat busy and entertained, and the bond with the owner is strengthened during the one-on-one training sessions.
