How to Teach Your Cat to Sit

1Work with your cat over a period of seven or more days. Do not feed more than 4-5 high calorie treats per day during this 7 day training period. If you feed more use a low calorie treat designed for training. These may be hard to find for cats. You can also use your cat's other favorite foods like chicken or tuna. It just needs to be in a form you can hand them. The treat will act as a tool to teach your pet.
2 Call your cat to you using a firm but friendly tone. When they come show them love and affection as a reward. If they haven't learned to come to you when you call, then call them, find them, and place them in front of where you started calling them. Example: Start calling them in the kitchen. Find them and bring them to the kitchen. Place them on the floor in front of you.
3 Present the treat to them to smell and remove it from them.
4 Place the treat above their head about a foot. If your cat tries to stand up and paw it from your hand, do not release the treat. Say NO in a firm tone and remove the treat. Hold the treat above their head by about 1 foot again. Directly after they are on their back legs and before they can paw for it lay the treat at their feet.
