If you are a new cat owner, you may not have realized that they can be trained. They think very differently than dogs and do not respond to the same training techniques. In fact, using the wrong training techniques can cause stress for your kitty and make it sick. They are sensitive to negative reprimanding tones and should never be hit or punished. Luckily, with a cat, you don’t have to be the bad guy. Your cat will learn to behave based on positive feedback and you will not only learn how to interact with your cat in the process, you will learn how similar cats behave to humans.
1. Reward System
Just as children shut down with negative punishment, cats do as well. Both children and felines respond best to the reward system. They are motivated to do things to get what they want and they will become anti social and reclusive if they are reprimanded.
