Surprise, Surprise: You can Train your Cat

Does your cat claw up your furniture, or chew on your house plants? If so, you and your kitty could benefit from some training. Despite how your feline may act, he or she is not the one in charge, and it is your job to let them know.

The key factors for any kind of training are patience, as you will need to repeat the training continuously until your cat catches on. Apart from these fundamental basics, you need to:

- Reward the good, punish the bad.

- Vocal Commands: Cats may not understand human language; however, they can come to understand certain sounds and associate them with actions.

- Substitution: It involves stopping your cat when he does something bad, and showing him the proper thing to do.
