    How to train your cat? | Kittenads

    Articlegeneral cat adviceTuesday 30 August 2011

    Cats are very intelligent but at the same time very individual animals. They simply like to go their own ways. However, while your kitty might have problems with learning to fetch, roll over or get the newspaper, you can train him to obey a few basic rules, such as urinating in the litter box and not clawing the new carpet.

    It is important you play with your cat, as many types of misbehaviour come because the cat is simply bored and has nothing to do. Although activity level might also depend on each cat breed, you should take your time to play with your kitty at least 20 or 30 minutes every day. You will definitely find it funny and you will straighten the bonds between you and your feline.

    Also by adopting a regular feeding schedule might help getting your kitty to be more scheduled and disciplined. Also teach your cat to use its litter box. You can find some useful tips in the article here. Remember to clean the litter box regularly. Most cats do not use the box because they think it is dirty (imagine yourself using unflushed toilet!). Make unwanted behaviour unrewarding to the cat. Cats love treats so it might be a good way to teach them how they should behave. Of course do not forget to prize the positive things! Praise and a treat for successfully using the litter box may encourage regular trips there.
