Use 'Motivators'


Most kittens are motivated by food rewards but with older cats it can be a challenge to find out exactly what’s powerful enough to drive it to perform. Freeze-dried liver treats are a good starting point and there are various commercial food treats to try. We have a range of treats at the clinic and in our on-line shop. Whatever you use, don’t be excessive with the rewards. If you’re using your cat’s regular dry food, remember to include these when measuring its daily rations. It sounds harsh but if treats don’t motivate your cat, skip its meals for a day. A healthy cat will come to no harm if it goes without food for 24 to 48 hours, as long as it drinks. When food doesn’t do the trick find the type of toy that tickles its interest. Soft furries do it for some while catnip toys do it for others.
