There exist three cardinal and very important rules and guidelines when aiming to apply and be successful in cat training. All three must be applied and put into action every time one trains his or her beloved pet cat.

Learn to utilize the things that make your cat happy and excited in order to help induce him into doing the desired and right action. Examples of pet cat rewards may be pet kibbles, or a cat toy such as a stuffed cotton mouse.
The second cardinal rule in the training of cats is that one should never, ever forget that the training itself is a form of bonding between owner and pet. Do not let an unproductive cat ruin your relationship with him or her. Always remember that cat training strengthens and increases feline-human relationships.
