Teach Your Cat To Retrieve Like A Dog

Feb 10, 2008
You can train your cat to retrieve its toys just like a dog. Many cats love to retrieve a crumpled piece of paper, a rolled up sock , or even a pom pom ball. After they learn, they will wear you out demanding that you throw this toy for them again and again. You can train your cat to fetch a toy in a half - hour or so, with a little patience and persistence. Start by getting your cats attention and throwing the toy so your cat chases it. Keep throwing the toy and keep repeating " bring it here." When your cat plays with the toy rather than bringing it to you, go get it and throw it again. Before long, he will get the idea. Once your cat picks up this habit you have to keep doing it every day or they will soon lose interest and forget how to fetch for you. This trick is easy to learn and most cats will quickly learn how to do it for you.

The best toys for cats and kittens... Now you have taught your cat how to fetch and he is constantly amazing you with his great talent, you need to spice up your cats life with a new toy.

You can purchase any number of fun toys for your cat from the store. Ping Pong balls make an ideal toy. They are light to bat around, and they are cheap to buy. You get six or twelve balls in a package for under three bucks.

Small rubber balls are also a favorite for some cats. Be careful that the ball is not so small that the cat can swallow and chock on it. Another consideration is whether the toy is made from something that your cat can tare up and swallow this includes rubber bands.

Plastic cat toys are fine but be leery of thin plastic toys that will become brittle when affected by sunlight and bells that your cat can swallow. My cats love to play with balls of crumpled up foil.

Cats love to play in bags. I always cut the handles on plastic bags if I let my cats play with them. I prefer paper bags and so do my cats. A few sheets of newspaper will entertain your cat for hours.

Cat houses and towers are great for letting your cat climb indoors. Most towers have toys attached to them and a scratching post. These days you can find them cheap on the net.

Catnip is a favorite for a lot of cats, but there are some cats that don't like it. If your lucky your cats love catnip and you can enjoy the pleasure of watching them go ballistic after eating some. My cats race around the house chasing each other after getting nipped up.

In conclusion, its really a simple task to teach your cat to fetch lice a dog. Keep working at it and before long both you and your cat will be having so much fun it will drive you nuts.
