7. Repetition is The Secret
Just as with children, cats only learn by doing and consistency is going to be your biggest asset in training your cat. If you are trying to get a certain trick or behavior, you yourself will have to reinforce it daily. They will forget things if you don’t have them repeat them because you are essentially creating neural synapse connections in their brain. If you think of a trail that is only walked on once in a while, it won’t be a very clear trail. If it is walked on frequently, it will have deep ridges and will be clearly marked. That is an example of how repetition trains the brain of both humans and kitties when it comes to making habits and learning new things.
