We heard an interesting story from a client recently who could not understand why their neighbour's beautiful male Persian cat was not very friendly towards them. This client is a huge fan of cats and whenever she interacts with one she makes strong eye contact, flashes a small, tries to pat them and even talks baby like to them, such as, 'You are so cute, yes you are...'. You would believe that this cat would be very open to this person exhibiting only positive signs of affection... unfortunately not. This particular Persian reacts as if he has no interest in this friendly person and apparently turns his nose up at her as if he got a whiff of a foul smell. Our client further exclaims that when her neighbour from up the street comes across the cat and does not communicate with him, the cat is suddenly providing this person with their overwhelming attention. Why is this the case?
We have all seen people transporting their dogs in cars. Sometimes the dogs are seen sticking their heads out the windows with their tongues flapping in the wind absolutely loving the experience. If you have just acquired a new pet and want to carry them around in your car regularly, then it is essential to train them into car rides.
So there you are spending a relaxing night in, happily munching away on a tasty bowl of amazing spaghetti bolognaise loaded with delicious sauce and topped with parmesan cheese. Lo and behold approach your faithful pet - staring at you with their adoring eyes, looking up at you pleadingly for a tidbit.
