Feline Psychology – What Does It Take to Train Your Cat Well?

Folks, before you start training your cat, there are a few things you should know about cats:

  1. In general, cats don’t like training
  2. They don’t care if you like them or not.

The things you will need most while training your cat are: patience, rewards, consistency, positive reinforcement, and most of all, TIME. If you have these ingredients, your workouts will be successful.

Both you and your cat will need to contribute something. It will be your time and patience and your cat will have to learn the lesson. If you want to teach your cat to use the litter box or play in the right way and place, prepare yourself for the task.

Everyone knows that cats are independent by nature. Some people don’t seem to see the difference between independence and not being able to learn. Remember that your cat needs mental stimulation and physical activity to stay healthy. Play with your cat to help him get enough exercise.

A good idea would be to consult your cat vet or read some books on cat psychology and behavior. There are things you should know before you start the training.

If I had to mention two key words for cat training, they would be: bribery and rewards. Cats don’t do things you want them to do simply because you asked them to; they must get something out of it for themselves. It’s as if they ask themselves, “what’s in it for me.” Some of the rewards you can get are: food, affection, rubs. By using rewards, you work with the cat’s natural instinct to help you achieve correct behavior.

Cats are different from dogs. Their ability to focus on one activity is less than that of dogs. Your workout should not be longer than 15 minutes per day. It is best to do pre-meal training when your cat is hungry.

I will give you some tips that you can use to make sure that your studies will be more successful. Yelling or hitting your cat will do nothing but scare the cat away from you. If your cat is afraid, it won’t learn anything. User rewards instead of punishment.

Use your voice. Your cat has very well developed hearing. Do not repeat commands more than twice, otherwise it will not be effective.

Your session should be short and pleasant for you and your cat. Use your cat’s name when giving the command. When your cat does something good, remember to reward and praise.

The food you use as a reward during training should be better than what your cat normally eats. Let your cat choose when to do the trick. Don’t force your cat to perform in front of your friends.

Cats remember well, so don’t give up. Practice patience with your cat and it will pay off. Cats are wonderful creatures. Just love them and you will see the results.
