[New York Bureau]: I May Not Have a Donkey, But I Just Taught My Cat To Sit
You think cats are untrainable, do you? Ha! The Companionable Atheist and I just taught our cat to sit!
Yes, this very animal, who right now is staring at the kitchen faucet trying to get another wet mouse to jump out of it (i.e. another drop of water), will come to us and sit down in front of us. Just as long as we're holding cat treats in our hands.
We're using this book Cat Training in 10 Minutes, which is written by a lady who wrangles cats for Purina ads and such. It's very good.
