Training with your cat - where to start?

To start with, you’re going to need a cat who’s awake and happy to give you some attention plus some of their favorite snacks, a clicker, and some idea of how the training should go. Learning sessions with a cat should be stretched out over time so that the young magician has time to soak in the knowledge and implement it into practice.

Debunking the myth of a “mean” cat

Can a cat be “mean”? If we were to open a book of myths, superstitions and old wives’ tales about cats, “meanness” would certainly be at a top spot there - how many times have we heard that cats are unfriendly, despicable and always ready to do us dirty?
