What would you say if I told you that your cats are trained to come, sit and stay already? Would you shake your head in disbelief? Like you I said No way, that my cats could not be trained to do anything more than use their litter box and scratching post. I was wrong and a good friend of mine opened my eyes to noise related training for cats.
I was given a book on training my cats with a clicker training method. The book suggested that I test my cats, because chances are they were all trained to respond to noises.
My husband gathered our 5 cats in the far end of the house while I went to the kitchen to get a can of cat food.
I pulled the lid away from the food and by doing that the lid made a clicking noise. When the lid was completely pulled away from the can I saw that all 5 of my cats were sitting at my feet.
The cats were trained to respond to noise because the related it to food.
