In the interest of starting positive and staying positive, I want you to ask yourself: What is my cat “good” at?
Maybe he’s a climber, or a shredder, or watcher. Start a list of the innate talents you find in your feline friend. Then add one more talent to the list: “You.” That’s right, chances are your cat is very good at “you.” Your cat probably knows “you” pretty well, right? They know what “you” like and how to get what they like out of “you.”
Some folks would even go so far to say that “you” are your cat’s job. All of the energy they would otherwise put into terrorizing the local rat population now gets siphoned into figuring out how to get their jollies out of “you.” This is an interesting theory, but I’m not terribly interested in hiring my cats in this capacity.
The point is, your cat has got to be good at something, no matter how small or insignificant. Fortunately, the Self Help for Cats program has all the tricks you’ll ever need for discovering and exploiting your cat’s dormant talent.
