hello kittyIf you have a daughter who loves cats, you might want to find a great cat training course so you can teach your cat some new tricks. You can even name your cat hello kitty, i know many people who have cats with this name and their kids love it. I have one friend whos daughter just had a birthday recenty and she rented her a bounce house.

She spent many weeks planning and searching for the bounce house for the party, she search for all the bells and whistles. She wanted a whole set up, tables chairs, cups, plates, everything. But the crazy part is she couldnt figure out for the life of her what theme to go with.

I was dumbfounded when she told me this, because it was obvious…..HELLO KITTY! When i told her, she looked at me in complete aww, and she said to me “this was so obvious i dont why i didnt think of it”.  So i told her to search for “hello kitty bounce house rental grand prairie” which is where she lives, needless to say this was the best party her daughter had so far in your short life.

How to Train Cats – Learn Cat Training Tips

Yes you really can train cats. Of course cat training isn’t easy. If you envision your cat meowing out “The Star Spangled Banner” using the toilet and flushing after himself or doing chores around the house you might need to lower your expectations.Like dogs, cats are intelligent and trainable animals. They enjoy praise and many of them will work for tasty treats. The reason most people don’t think of training cats is that unlike dogs cats are not wired to be pack animals. They are less ready to learn things like coming when called, sitting, staying and other tricks.

Cats, however, can be trained not to claw furniture, wake you up at dawn, have fun with your cat and do tricks, to use a litter box or toilet train your cat, tolerate a cat carrier, enjoy a walk on a leash, scratch at posts instead of the furniture and allow you to clip their claws. With this training course, you will learn the ways in which you have already trained your cat, the secret to understanding the world from your cat’s point of view and how to train the cat to act in new ways that make your life easier.

Cat TrainingIt may surprise you to learn that your cat is already trained. He just may not be trained to act in ways that you consider desirable. For example, many owners report that when they shake a treat bag or open a can of food, their cats come running. Most of us wouldn’t consider this a trained action, but it is.

There is nothing in a newborn cat’s brain to tell him that the sound of a can or the rustle of cellophane means food is coming. The cat has learned to associate these sounds with food and to respond accordingly.The same type of process occurs in the brains of cats that meow or pounce on their owners in the morning.

This is usually undesirable behavior from a human point of view, but when faced with a persistent feline, most owners feed or play with the cat in order to placate him. Because the behavior is rewarded, the cat continues it. The cat has, in effect, been trained to meow at dawn. By understanding how you have already trained your cat, you will be able to steer further training in a more desirable direction.

How to Train Your Cat to Stop Clawing Furniture

cat-clawing-furniture-132x200

It is a fallacy that cats cannot be trained, particularly when it comes to scratching on the furniture in your home. With a little time cat-clawing-furniture-132x200and dedication, any cat can be trained not to claw furniture.First, understand that cats were made to claw; they scratch on things in order to release the top layer of their nails, thus revealing sharper layers below. It would be unrealistic to train a cat not to claw at all. Rather, the trick is to teach them where it is appropriate to scratch, and where it is not acceptable.

Following these steps will help you teach your cat not to scratch on the furniture:

  1. Provide a suitable place for the cat to scratch. The best option is a scratch post, covered in carpeting or rope. Ideally, have more than one scratch post, with at least one tall enough for Kitty to stretch fully, in her natural way, reaching up to rub her front claws across the surface. Place these posts in areas where the cat enjoys spending time, and where you can take the cat to it easily.
  2. When you see your cat scratching, walk over to him, then firmly say, “No.” Pick the cat up, gently, and carry him to the scratch post. Very gently, rub your cats paws on the post in a scratching motion, sweetly talking to the cat, telling him what a good boy he is.
  3. If your cat does not seem interested in the scratching posts, make them more interesting. You can rub some cat nip on them, purchase feline pheromones to spray on them, or, start feeding your cat his favorite treat only on, or at the base of, the scratching post. Get the cat to like his post and feel comfortable around it. Then, continue to take him to the post every time you see him scratching elsewhere.
  4. Perform step 2 religiously. Constantly. Without fail. It is all about persistence, and could take a couple of weeks. If the cat is left alone a lot during the day, it could take longer. Cats learn through repetition. So, every time you see her clawing on furniture, you must get up, and do step 2.
  5. Often, after using this process for only a few days, the cat will begin to scratch on the scratch posts. But, they may still occasionally scratch on furniture. At this point, if the cat has

Training an Old Cat New Tricks

Just like humans, the older a cat is, the less likely training will be successful. Always begin training early in the kitten stages of feline development. A kitten is more active at this time and also more curious. So, you can teach your kitten to find a ball or jump over a small object more easily. Try not to teach your kitten tricks that are too far above their mental development levels. Kittens get confused. When kittens are confused, they stop, give you a particular tea-cup stare and you know they just don’t get it.

Feline Observations

Attempts at training any feline to do tricks can be difficult. The first step to achieving this goal is to pay close attention to your cat’s personality. There are as many cat personalities as there are human personalities. Understanding this fact avoids years of frustration. Imagine a human with a personality that is inflexible and adverse to suggestion. Now, you have an idea of what kitty may be like. Oddly, cats are more sensitive to their owners than we realize. This is assuming that the owner has spent a good deal of time with their pet. Cats observe behaviors in a unique way: By watching every move we make and processing their observations to determine their owners moods and habits. Meanwhile, we go blithely amid the kitties thinking they aren’t paying attention. All the while, we are the main focus of their daily curiosities.

Progression Tricks

If your kitten has figured out how to fetch a ball, returning the ball has to be enjoyable for the kitten so it will continue to fetch. Attach a long string to the ball. Toss it into the air. Wait for the kitten to make a run for it. Slowly pull the ball toward you. The kitten will naturally follow it back to you. Be prepared to be very patient. Remember, this is a cat. Tricks should be taught in progression. As an example, to get your cat to roll over, make it follow an object with its eyes. Do this so that the cat rolls from side to side at first and then revolve the object so that the cat has to roll completely over. Practice these tricks again and again. Be aware that the cat may become bored and just decide “enough is enough” and walk away with that bored look. That’s the signal that …

Step by Step Guide to Walking Your Cat on a Leash

Training a cat to walk on a leash is a task that will require some dedication. It is not by any means difficult, but it does take a little time and energy. Be prepared to put a some time into it.

  1. Firstly, make sure your cat loves to be around you. Try calling him over when you are on the other side of the room. If he loves to come over and be by you while you pet him and snuggle with him, then he should have no problem following you around either.
  2. The second step is finding a treat that your cat loves. If you are a person that gives your kitty treats every day you will already know this step and it will be easy! Cats can be quite particular though, so before training with treats make sure he loves those little tasty morsels. You might have to try a few different flavors.
  3. Thirdly, buy a leash and harness. Make sure the collar, or harness, is not one that just goes around your cat’s neck, it has to go around his stomach as well, and have a little clip on the back. This way, your cat can’t just wiggle right out of the collar if he decides to get flighty, like all cats do.

Leave the leash and harness around the house, maybe on the floor by his kitty bed, or perhaps over by where he likes to lounge in the sun. Cats are curious, and they will look at this harness, and hopefully accept it. Once your cat is familiar with the harness, you can try putting it on.

Give your kitty a treat when putting on the harness to distract him a little, and then slip it right over him and clasp it quickly before he gets away! It’s ok if he is a little skittish about his first time wearing a harness. Cats don’t wear harnesses in the wild, so it will feel abnormal to him.

Do not put the leash on right away. Let him walk around the house, and wear the harness for awhile, because he needs to get accustomed to the feeling of it around his body. It shouldn’t restrict your cat’s leg movements or be on too tight, but it will seem a little strange to him at first.

After he looks comfortable in the harness, break out the leash and …

How to Toilet Train Your Cat

So you want to train your cat to use the toilet? Toilet training a cat is not easy. Some people like to think of their cats as humans. But that doesn’t change that fact that cats are still of another species altogether. Their training should be specialized to suit their needs, mental abilities, and instincts. It takes time for them to develop good habits. One prime example is toilet-training. Expect to put in time, effort, and a lot of patience into this task. Remember that you are teaching your cat to be “domesticated” which is against their natural inclination.

Preparing for the Toilet Training

It is ideal to have two toilets inside the house if you want to train your cat. The first toilet can be for your usage while the second one can be for the cat. Your cat needs to get used to the height and strength of the flush of the water tank so if the two toilets have different specifications, don’t switch from one to another.
Also, take note that the cat should be at least six months old before undergoing toilet-training because they are continually growing. At some point, they need to balance themselves in the toilet seat. If they are used to using it when they were small, they might struggle once they get bigger.

Materials

Using aluminum trays as a tool is highly effective. One tray will be fitted into the toilet while the next one should replace the cat’s litter box. The latter is important because it conditions the cat to use aluminum trays whenever he has the urge to relieve himself. The transition from using the litter box to the toilet becomes easier by using aluminum trays.

Patience is the Key

It is hard enough to train a cat to use the litter box. So expect that training your cat to use the toilet will be more of a challenge. Give your cat time to adjust to the aluminum tray. Usually, it takes a few days before it feels comfortable. Gradually move the aluminum tray closer to the toilet and then raise it 2-4 inches off the ground.
Ensure that it is in a stable surface and that the cat has room enough to maneuver around comfortable. Once the cat get used to this height, raise it 1-2 inches higher each time until it reaches the height of the toilet. Things …

TIP: Don’t overfeed your cat as it will only cause harm to the cat and keep it from being 100% fit & healthy. Most people think that cats love milk, which they do, but they find it very hard to digest so limit the amount of milk you give your cat.

#2 Clean Litter Boxes

Cats are one of the cleanest animals around. The only time a cat really gets dirty is when it is in a dirty litter box. When cats lick to clean themselves you don’t want them to ingest much dirt so the cleaner the box the healthier the cat. All this dirt can increase the chance of infections.
