Re: How do you train a cat? - November 14th 2019, 10:52 PM

What foods is he trying to eat? Is he going on the table? I have several cats, but haven't really trained them. I don't usually use the spray bottle but everyone's different with what works for them. If he's trying to eat meat it might be because he needs some (especially if he looks small/underfed).

If my cats try eating my food I usually will put them away (in a bedroom or something) so I can eat or I'll offer them treats. My cats have a feeding schedule and they tend to like eating when I eat my meals.

When I look into the eyes of an animal
I do not see an animal
I see a living being
I see a friend
I feel a soul.

They whispered to her
you cannot withstand the storm
she whispered back
i am the storm.

If you just got him/her off the streets, I suggest you take them to the vet for checkups. You do not know what this cat might have come in contact with, nor do you know if he already has a human; so that's also an incentive to check missing animal posting around your community. I don't know what the guideline is regarding that, how long you have to wait before you can take them home etc. But definitely tread with caution.

Does he behave feral or is he very friendly around you/other people? If so, then he probably does have humans that he belongs to. I would share pictures you take with your community, do the right thing and try to get him back to his humans. If nobody responds within a reasonable time frame, then you can take them home as your own.a

In the meantime, I suggest feeding him your typical cat food. Ask your pet nutritionist for advice. That should do for now.

I wish you the best of luck.
