Getting your Cat to Visit Us
It is so important for you to bring your cat to see us on a regular basis.  You can be a part of the good visit your cat has while he or she is here. 

How do cats learn?
We don’t have to tell a cat owner that cats are not small dogs!  Cats learn when you give positive rewards to encourage positive behavior.  For example, if your cat is sitting calmly in or near her carrier, give her a treat.  A treat is what is highly desirable to your cat, which may be in the form of food, play or affection.  Be persistent and reward each and every time you see the good behavior.  Remember that cats do not learn from punishment or force.  If you do not see the positive behavior or you are feeling anxious, angry or frustrated, avoid teaching your cat at that moment and pick up the training session at another time.

Cats can be trained to do many things, from performing tricks to not scratching in inappropriate locations.  Training your cat can be a great way to keep your cat’s mind active and to keep your cat out of mischief!  For more information about keeping your cat healthy and happy, please visit the Cornell University Feline Health Center website.
