“I give my cat baths by allowing her to float in a plastic box. The box is kept in my closet. I’ve only been doing this for about a month, but she now runs to the closet and leaps into her box when I put on the bathwater.”

However, according to the expert, some creatures are simply unmotivated and impossible to train. “If your pet doesn’t seem to get enthusiastic about anything, including attention, treats, food, pets, or toys, you should have them checked out by a veterinarian to ensure they’re in good health.”

Many of the listed habits are safe and enjoyable, but unintended training can lead to dangerous circumstances. Consider how your cat hides whenever you get out of a carrier since it indicates it’s time to go to the clinic. Perhaps you don’t need to conceive this scenario; perhaps you’ve already lived it! Isn’t it annoying? In addition, the animal is under additional strain. However, there is almost always a way out. “A frequent solution for [the previously described problem] is to keep the carrier out all of the time and make it interesting to the cat by putting a nice blanket, toys, and catnip inside,” Bell explained. “Then you’ve taken off the bit about getting the carrier out that makes them hide. The cat is then rewarded every time they enter the container on their own.”
