Cat – very clever being. Sometimes there is even an impression that she understands the human speech. Actually it not absolutely so – cats read out intonation and mood of the hostess though can remember also value of several words, like the name or "to eat". Once again we will repeat: cats, as well as small children, perceive not THAT is told and AS it is told therefore with cats it is necessary to be sincere – if you wish to be correctly understood, of course.
How to accustom a cat …
Simply to accustom a cat to a name. It is rather simple to call it by the name of every time during the pleasant moments – to stroke, scratch, feed. It is possible to call up a kitten, alternating the traditional "turned sour-pussycats-pussycats" also a name. There is only one moment which InfoAdvisor.net recommends to avoid: not to call a kitten just like that, or, is worse than to punish. The small animal has to know that if call – there will be something good.
It is simple to accustom to a toilet too. Sometimes happens rather simply to show where it is. – it is simple to carry more reliable method a kitten on the right place after he eats. Most likely the kid quickly will understand where it is necessary to do the things.
If the cat persistently is not accustomed to the place, it is necessary to understand that to it disturbs. Perhaps, it makes sense to rearrange a tray in more lonely place, to replace filler type.
When the adult cat starts marking diligently the territory, your strategy has to change a little – he does it consciously, declaring to the world the rights. Here only in the city apartment such way, to put it mildly, is inappropriate. Continuous washings, as a rule, give nothing – marks even more persistently. If to stick a cat a muzzle in "Skoda", he can apprehend it as "yes, here your place, exactly here you also have to mark" – and to continue the odorous business.
But the exit is – not to try to accustom to something, and is ineffectual, and to understand a cat, and to work in his world, by its rules. The territory at cats is marked not by everyone, but only the owner, the main cat. Here it is also necessary to inform an animal that you assume this role. So, outposts of a cat on hot, take him by the scruff (or ask someone to help you). Feel "the most important cat", fixedly look to a cat in the face (under cat's laws who the first looked away – that lost) and hiss on him – as cats hiss before a fight. Finger-tips simulate cat's blows in a muzzle (sensitively, but commensurate force – after all a cat much weaker you). Continue until the cat begins to squeak as soon as began to squeak – release. Right there seal the win – wash away a cat's tag and put the. Of course, it is not obligatory by a cat's method at all :-) – it is rather simple to wipe a sweaty undershirt or to puff a favourite deodorant.
Cats, as well as children, do not love and not especially understand the word it "is impossible". But to some ban to accustom a cat after all it is possible if to conform to such rules:
- if something is impossible, it is impossible from the very beginning once and for all;
- at cats rather short memory therefore to abuse a cat for deeds more than half an hour it is simply useless back – she will not understand you;
- it is better to stop in process, than to abuse then. Also it will be better if the cat does not understand that she was stopped by you – then she will not do forbidden, even having stayed at home itself. Cats do not love sharp sounds therefore that the cat stopped doing that it is not necessary (to gnaw a decorative flower, for example), it is enough to throw with a force on a floor a bunch of keys. Other suitable method – to scatter on a shaggy shkodnitsa water.
At introduction of a ban it is necessary to understand why the cat seeks to make that would not be desirable for you – and to give her the chance to satisfy the requirements in the acceptable way. For example, to make by it the special stand or at least to put a bar for sharpening of claws – and in attempt to sharpen claws where does not follow, it is simple to transfer it there.
Cat – a wild animal. It needs a lot of movement. Cats outdoors run much, jump, hunt on birdies, mice, moths. … In the city apartment to it to hunt there is nobody, and aimless bustle in familiar walls quickly bothers. Bind the curtailed slice of the newspaper on a string and drag on a floor – the cat will try to catch it. Perhaps, will simply pursue, and maybe to make an ambush. Still it is possible to start low samoletik, to roll on a floor a small ball – a cat interesting everything that moves.
It is possible to play and on another. When a cat in playful mood, softly turn it on a back and as if tickle a breast. He will clasp your hand pads, maybe teeth, and will fight as if. If, in your opinion, the cat too was fond, or you wish to interrupt quickly game – simply relax a hand and do not move with it. Then to a cat it will become simply uninteresting, and he will release you. If you simply try to take away a hand, the cat will apprehend it as one more game element.
To understand a cat rather simply – usually her pantomime is rather expressive. InfoAdvisor.net considers that it will be useful to remind of those gestures through which cats transmit the mood once again. So, highly raised tail – a greeting sign. If the cat nervously whips herself a tail on each side – she is excited. If the tail rotates or all is fluffed up – the cat intends to be protected by power methods. If the tail is wrapped up a kalachik round a body, or only the tail tip slightly moves – the cat is happy, to her it is good. The cat declares trust, tychas a muzzle in . About irritation – the ears pressed to the head.
Cat and other animals

If the animal is comparable to a cat by the sizes, try to track that they had nothing to divide. If it is less – most likely at a cat will work a maternal instinct.

So it will be easier for cat to understand that the beginner – the new member of your pack, and at all not production.
It is clear that in such a way you will not acquaint a cat with the small child. Usually adult cats very patiently treat tricks of children and on the child's smell easily will understand that he is a new member of pack. But sometimes cats happen very jealous. Try not to give it a reason to be jealous you of the child – find time to play, talk to it as earlier, to comb out it, etc. It and for you will be useful – with a cat calms, she as if delays inharmonious energy.
To let out or not to let out a cat? To solve it to owners. Of course not to let out more simply and more quietly – but if you live in the quiet district, it is quite possible to give the chance to a cat to walk. At once refuse walks with a lead – they will not bring pleasure neither to you, nor a cat. It is better to accustom simply a cat as she can go out for a walk and how to return. Do not take out a cat on "a suitable platform for walk" – it has to go the paws, then it will be able easily to find a way home. And in general, cats prefer to walk in itself, without owners.

Only do not take out a cat on hands – let out on a landing and observe (naturally before accustoming a cat to walks, she should be accustomed to a name and owners). When the cat goes down on one-two flights – call her home, and treat with something tasty. Gradually release a cat everything farther. In the first days of completely independent walks of InfoAdvisor.net advises to hold a door to the apartment slightly slightly opened – enclose something that did not slam it draft.
