7. Target Practice

Once your cat has mastered the basics, you can move her on to more advance tricks. The key to the next three tricks is keeping your cat focused or “on target.”

For this trick you will need a short dowel or stick with a small ball on the end. Get your cat’s interest with the stick and when he touches his nose to the end of it, reward him with his favorite snack. As your cat progresses and consistently touches the ball with its nose, you can begin to move the stick to different places. Once this is mastered attach a cue to the behaviour like, “come.” This will take some practice, but with enough motivation (treats) you cat will associate the behavior with a reward.
