Shelter Cats

Clicker Training

Clicker training is a way to have fun, positive interactions with cats. This is especially important in a shelter where some cats don’t view humans in a very positive light. It reminds the cats that nice things happen when people are around. Eventually cats become less fearful and more interested in potential adopters.

PAWS volunteer Gail has been teaching clicker training to other volunteers, and working with a number of cats at the shelter.
Here’s a session with Roamer, one of her star pupils.

“Up, Roamer!”

“Good job, Roamer!” Gail gives him a little reward.

I am very interested to clicker train the cats though I think I myself need training on how to do it. 🙂

That is AWESOME!!!! What a great way to help the kitties interact! It looks like fun too…I think I should get a clicker for Katie! Wonder if you can teach a (shhhhhh) kind of old kitty some new tricks!

I’ve never seen such a long clicker either…
Wow, a Thundershirt last week, and now a clicker this week. I better start budgeting my green papers!
