Formatted Contents Note: Introduction: Why train a cat? -- How cats learn, and what you can do to make it easy for them -- Understanding your cat's training requirements -- Our training philosophy : mastering the key skills -- How cats adapt to living with an alien species (us!) -- Cats and other cats -- Cats and other pets -- Cooped-up cats -- Touch : insult or indulgence? -- Flight, fight, or freeze? : cats don't take kindly to stress (especially visits to the vet's) -- Cats at large : the big outdoors -- Shredded drapes and bloody corpses : the less appealing sides of cat behaviour.
Summary, etc.: "The idea of training rarely crosses cat owners' minds, and we often assume that cats can't and don't need to be trained. But in The Trainable Cat, bestselling anthrozoologist John Bradshaw and cat expert Sarah Ellis show that not only can cats be trained, but they absolutely must be in order to strengthen the bond between pet and owner, reduce their anxiety, and maximize their happiness,"--Amazon.com.
