Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book on Cat Training This is currently the best book on positively training your cat to develop the behaviours you want and extinquish the behaviours you don't want. The process described requires some patience and commitment but is also a lot of fun - as your cat and you begin to communicate more clearly. The pictures are wonderful and the descriptions are clear. I would also recommend that anyone really interested in clickertraining cats join the clickertraining Cat Chat group. They provide the needed support when questions arise that can't be covered in one book.
