As a rule, training cats comes down to teaching them fairly simple commands – “Come!”, “Sit!”, “Give me a paw.” The first team is the easiest to teach a cat – she always goes to the call when she knows that she will be given something pleasant. So start accustoming your pet to feeding. At the same time, you need to speak cheerfully and easily, calling the cat by name. As soon as the pet appears, put food in the bowl. After the cat has mastered, the “come” command can be practiced in other situations – in this case, caresses serve as a reward.
The “sit” command must be taught patiently. Put the animal on the ground and wait until it sits on its own, then immediately say the command. If the cat responds correctly, give her a treat, and if she is stubborn and does not move, put your hand on her back, as if asking to sit down and repeat the command.
You can teach a cat to give a paw after she has learned to follow the “sit” command. When the animal sits, take one of the front paws and say the command: “Give a paw!” – then immediately reward the cat. The exercise should be repeated until the cat begins to put its paw in your palm on its own.
In addition, the cat can use the commands “Get up!” learn. (To block the path of the animal with your hand and say the command) and “Bring it!” (start with objects that cats like to run after) and hoop jumps. You can also teach your cat other commands and tricks, but don’t overexert the cat.
