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.
Why did I choose him? Firstly, he was the most confident of all the kittens in the cage. This was very important as I do have a (well-mannered) Chihuahua at home and he would have to be able to hold his own with her. Secondly, the kitten I went in originally to see didn’t have as sleek and shiny a coat as the one I chose. You can tell a lot by the coat of a cat. The original kitten perhaps didn’t know how to bathe itself, or was possibly not as healthy as the one I chose. Lastly, I really liked the way my kitten looked. He is creamy and ginger and has the most amazing light greeny yellow eyes. He is almost a cat now, and quite a handful. We don’t have any problems with him and the Chihuahua and he is in excellent health with all vaccinations and worming taken care of.
