Cats are almost always depicted as loners, the lords of their
realm, snobbish and downright stubborn. This is a type of animal
that is quite proud, going their own way and rarely following
orders. Think Garfield.
While this could be quite unfair to the cat, they are almost
always compared to the loyalty and obedience of a dog, qualities
which make them a popular pet all over the world.
That is why it is recommended to all cat owners or those who do
plan to get a cat to train them immediately. This establishes
the role of each person in the household. Cat training allows
for the cat owner to train his or her cat and eventually leading
up to a long lasting loving relationship between owner and pet.
Just like having a child, a pet cat that knows how to follow
orders and is a source of pride and joy will be given great
attention and love as well as more rewards.
But, before you start training your cat, you must know first its
natural instincts and behaviours. As cat owners, we must respect
what is but natural to every cat so we don't encroach into those
It is not uncommon for some cats to feel depression and stress,
so do not mistake this for stubbornness or hard-headedness. This
may cause a rift between you and your cat. The more you scream
at it and the more you hurt it, the more the wedge and rift
grows, making it harder to do cat training.
Have your cat checked out by a vet first before any cat
training. There are many factors to consider first. If the vet
gives the thumbs-up sign then your good to go. Cat training will
provide for a happier and healthier cat-owner relationship.
