One of my christmas gifts from the boys is a book entitled Cat Training in 10 Minutes by Miriam Fields-Babineau. I've paged through the book eagerly several times and it seems like a great resource, but unfortunately it's not designed for people in my living situation.
The book is filled with pictures and step-by-step training instructions and that's great. However, the book suggests you conduct the training in a quiet room, free of distractions. It even implies that outdoor training might be a good idea. Well, as you may know, I live in a one bedroom apartment with two rambunctious kittens. Where's the quiet space here?
This evening, Liz and I spent 30 minutes trying to teach the boys to come to us on command. Unfortunately, as soon as we call one and try to give him a treat as a reward, his brother will come and try to snatch the treat away. Or both boys will come at once and they're not coming b/c of the command but because of the treat. The problem is that there are too many distractions and the biggest distraction each boy has is the other one.
