A comprehensive and engaging step-by-step guide, The Trainable Cat will help you to have fun with your pet as they learn to negotiate the complexities of everyday life: to enjoy living with new babies and other pets; answer to their name; settle into a new home; and overcome the anxiety of a visit to the vet. You can teach your beloved moggy to do what is best for it – even when its instincts tell it otherwise. The result?
