It depends largeley on the personality of the cat. One lays down on command and will turn around if I ask. The laying down was taught by pushing the cat down and voicing the command, repeatedly. The turn around was taught by leading with a treat. The treat is no longer required.
The other cat had a tendency to reach out to me with a paw for attention, so I simply took advantage of this and taught him to ‘shake’. All he ever wanted as a reward is some petting. So I pet, then ask to shake, and he does. SO COOL!

He knows how to sit and beg. Im gunna try the handshake thing. On a side note, my cat will now beg for anything i am eating, not only cat treats. i kinda wish i HADNT taught him that begging is cute. im dying to see what his “bust a move” is…good article.

I have experience handling male and female cats from different owners and I noticed a huge trend in learning curve with executing trick maneuvers and shaking hands (at least paws). As far as picking treats, my cat eats whatever he can reach out of his milk and dry food bowl.
Good insights K! Keep on keeping on with the cat show!

Its note-worthy how treats are a gateway to access your cat, when it seems that the bond formed with your car during the course of the trick teaching process is in reality what ultimately gets the cat doing the tricks. For example even if I were armed with a treat I doubt I’d be able to coax a trick out of jiggy, simply because i lack the rapport and bond that you do. Very clever. good post

I’m tempted to go out there and get a kitty and follow your steps and advice to see if I can do the same. Maybe it will work on my little Sheena?? Hmmm….I think I’m going to head over to the animal shelter and resuce a cat now.

I never had a cat, but my shih tzu does not respond to these suggestions at at.. She is just a bit prissy though. I can almost see your kitty with an I-pod getting jiggy. 🙂 Was your first attempt to train a cat successful or a total failure? Just curious about your own determination.
