Blog Swap: Cat Trick Videos
Today, I’m pleased to do a Blog Swap with fellow web writer, designer, and blogger Melanie McMinn, an American ex-pat living in New Zealand. Her beyond-beautiful blog The Frugal Kiwi offers great money-saving and DIY ideas on many fronts. So, when I came up with an at-home, free way to cool my laptop, I offered to guest post on her blog in exchange for a guest post here. So, I’m super excited to present Melanie’s insights into training cats to do tricks. The videos are darling!
Training Cat Tricks
Beg, shake hands and high-five are all common tricks for Fido. Easy enough to teach and fun for your dog to learn. But what if you don’t have a dog?
Chamille, the LaPerm, came to us as an ex-breeding queen.
When Sir Ed, the Devon Rex, joined the family, I tried training him as well.
Since Ed prefers causing havoc to eating treats, he’s proved to be a less promising cat to train than Chamille. However, he has trained US to play fetch with him — a common behavior for his breed. Ed’s favorite game is to drop an elastic pony tail holder on my foot and have me fire it down the hall for him. He’ll race after it at breakneck speed, grab it, and bring it back for more fun.
