One of my cats has some behavior challenges and a cat behaviorist suggested clicker training as a way to change his behavior.

We put good, tall, sturdy sisal posts near all corners of the furniture, and two horizontal scratchers in between them.

What an incredible book! I learned about it when I was finally forced to consult with a Cat Behavior Consultant, after ruling out medical issues with my cat's Vet. My cat Sophie is a 6 year old Bengal cat. She was never very active (unusual in a Bengal), and I always felt like she just wanted to be "left alone" - truly a bummer, since her twin brother is completely opposite - he is playful, healthy, and very communicative. So... I decided to add a third cat, thinking then my boy would have a playmate... and that's when things went downhill fast. Sophie quickly began having outside of the box "accidents." She was diagnosed with FLUTD which is a maddening condition that causes recurring bladder infections that are not easy to treat - I understand that often, it is caused by stress. So the inappropriate elimination, most times, was not due to a bladder infection (treatable with Antibiotics) but actually due to her stress in adding a 3rd cat, and her overall lack of stimulation and contentment. I learned from Marilyn's book how to get her ENGAGED with me, which has ultimately led to near eradication of "accidents." It has become a fun activity that we do together daily. What is interesting is to see how excited my other cats are about this too - my "new" cat is a year old and he has progressed lightyears beyond the others (he's not set in his ways, I guess) :-) But I can say without reservation, this book is an essential tool for building a stronger bond with your cats, and for correcting behaviors like door darting and counter surfing (two BIG problems I had, with the new cat!). I saw Marilyn on Cats 101 demonstrating the technique, and I didn't really "get it" at first - I thought it was neat but I really didn't understand how it all worked. "Naughty No More!Read more ›

My cat is named Norman Bates because, well....he's psycho. Very strong willed, stubborn, vindictive, you name it! He's also 7 years old, so I thought that it was impossible to train him, or any cat for that matter. After going through 2 sofas in 3 years due to his scratching, (down to the wood frame!) I was desperate.

A friend recommended this book and I can't tell you what a lifesaver it has been. My cat took to the training within 2 days, and has completely changed. He LOVES his training sessions, and learned how to sit after only a week.

Although I wish there was a little more specific detail in the book, I still gave it 5 stars, and you'll be able to quickly figure out whatever details are missing.

Well written and organized. The author provides a lot of information about basic behavior management theory which is fascinating and helpful. Of all the basic books on clicker training cats this one was my favorite. It provides far more than guidance on dealing with behavioral issues. It's also a great intro to clicker training specific to cats. One trip provided that was particularly helpful was how to find an alternative for a traditional clicker if your cat is afraid of the clicker noise. My cat was scared and ran from traditional clicker sounds. This book suggested using the click of a ballpoint pen, it worked beautifully.
In addition to basic instructions in clicker training there are also case studies and a chapter on training tricks. This book has a bit of everything for cat clicker training. It's obvious the author is very knowledge about the science and practical skills required to clicker train cats. It's so nice to have something like this that is specific to cats. The majority if the clicker training books are dog oriented.

Having adopted a beautiful Persian and wondered why she was placed for a new home....I discovered...she has a beautiful coat, that was beginning to mat terribly....and since she also does not like being held or groomed, we were soon in a real mess. This book has great ideas to help move a cat to new behaviors, I highly recommend it...I was already familiar with clicker training [dogs and horses]....works great with my cat too, just snapping my fingers even works. She now loves to follow me around, seeks to be petted often....still does not like to sit in my lap or be held, but is tolerating it for longer and longer periods of time and it seems she even might be enjoying it more. Oh....some premium catnip was very helpful too.

One of my cats has some behavior challenges and a cat behaviorist suggested clicker training as a way to change his behavior. I've looked at clicker training books before but other than teaching tricks I was not sold on the concept. However, this book pairs bad behaviors with positive reinforcement using clicker training and it works. We are still in the basics but my cat enjoys the training and I find instructions are easy to understand and the Case Study lets me see how a real situation using clicker training works.Naughty No More

I am a first time cat owner and this book has opened my eyes to many ways to learn lots of things about Alana. Especially communicating with each other. It is a positive and fun book that has helped with why Alana scratches the Love seat instead of her many scratching posts and also some very fun things to keep us busy learning new things.
I love the fact that it is written in way that is easy for a new cat owner to understand and follow through.

Very nice Marilyn.
Claire Clayton
