Pounce! A How To Speak Cat Training Guide
Having two cats myself, I have found Pounce! A How to Speak Cat Training Guide a big help with understanding my cats’ behaviors. The book covers training your cats to perform basic tricks such as “come” as well as some involving toys to enhance playtime. The lessons continue onto intermediate tricks, such as “shake” and “sit,” and the wearing of a harness for outdoor walks. Then there are the advanced tricks, which look impressive when a cat is capable of performing them, such as “fetch,” crawling, and jumping tricks.
Most of the lessons take between four and eight steps, with the basic tricks taking up to two. In addition to the training instructions, there are other chapters about understanding your cat’s behaviors as well as tips for addressing issues such as furniture scratching, jumping on the counter, walking on your keyboard, and being up all night.
Pounce! is a quick read but it is effective in terms of the way the information presented is communicated to the reader. There are plenty of cute pictures and interesting facts throughout the book. There’s even a quiz at the end that will help you to determine what kind of cat you would be. If you’re a cat owner or lover, this is a must-read book!
