4.0 out of 5 stars Cat training is proved possible! 8 Mar 2012
By PeggyP
When I decided to get a kitten, I thought how fun it would be to train her, but all my friends and family told me that I couldn't and that cats were impossible to train. I was told that they were aloof and independent animals with no desire to please humans or do what they wanted.
I was wrong!!!
This book starts by talking about how even though cats are perceived as independent creatures, this is simply a paradigm. The reason they sleep all the time is because when we are out, they are destructive out of boredom. It says that in order to avoid this, we should train our cats and that a simple ten minutes a day will suffice. I used the methods in the book and have managed, after only 3 ten minute sessions, to reliably train my kitten to come when she is called. Occasionally she won't, and I am still working on training her to come when she can't see me, but other than this the book is fantastic. The methods are all successful and easy to understand, and help to establish good training habits so that next time, you won't need a book. One thing that is great about this is that the author specifies how long it takes the average cat to learn something. She says that recall training should take ten minutes to work when used in a small room. I will admit, I was doubtful at first but it really did work.
I also really enjoyed the stories about various popular cat trainers. This chapter really opened my eyes and made it obvious that cats can be trained and are in front of us, we just don't see it. For example; Data's cat Spot in Star Trek TNG!!!! His trainer is mentioned in the book.
The downside for me is that the book doesn't really deal with troubleshooting, or bad behaviour in cats. It doesn't mention how to wean a cat off treats - my cat will only come if she sees I have a reward.

Yes, cats can learn, and mine did, bit by bit. However, I didn't really like the way the exercises were explained to me in this book. And I only found a couple(!) of useful exercises. Nonetheless, 4 stars for teaching me cats are not untamable beasts!
