What do You Know About Cats! Were cats domesticated in Egypt? Cats may be the most popular pet in the world; they are valued by humans for their companionship and their ability to hunt; the domestic cat hunts and eats over a thousand species. Cats may express affection towards their masters, especially if the pets were treated with consistent affection at a very young age. It was believed that cats had been domesticated in ancient Egypt. The first domesticated cats may have saved early Egyptians from many rodent infestations and likewise and it was the reason to make the cat a cult animal. Several ancient religions even believed that cats are exalted souls. But recent study tells that African Wildcats self-domesticated in the Near East much earlier.
To train your kitty to come to your call is to repeat their name while they are looking at you. Look them in the eye while you are using a nice tone of voice. Another way to call your cat is to have another sound, like snapping fingers, or clicking noises with your tongue. These typically gain the attention of your cat or kitten so they learn to come when you call.
Reinforcement starts at any age, but it is typically wise to start out with a kitten. Cats cannot distinguish words, but they are very astute in distinguishing tones of your voice. They will know they have done something wrong just by the tone of voice you use. This is why it is important to use your upset voice when they have done something wrong, otherwise they will become confused. Let us go back to reinforcement. Reinforcement is either positive or negative. Water is a negative reinforcement for a cat or kitten because they typically despise being wet. Some positive reinforcement can be hugs or fully body petting, treats, or play time.
