My barn cats are clicker trained, and my other cats respond to it as well. My horses are clicker trained also.

If I make a kissy noise Peaches will kiss me. All I have to do is open the IAMS pull top on a can of wet food and Peaches comes running! (And she doesn't get it very often).

But no clicker training!

I can just see mine laugh at me then take over the clicker to try and train me (like I'm not trained already)

My mother used to clicker train her cats. Until the 9th one came along! LOL, she decided she couldn't handle the rush of 9 cats coming at her all at once.

Thanks for the replies! Mine are just can-opener trained too, at this point, but the clicker-training sounds neat.

Clicker training is saving the lives of previously labeled unfit ferals in shelters. The woman who invented this type of training, is going into the shelters and working with the cats, taking them from the label of unadoptable to ones who can be adopted. It is quite effective. I am looking for the website today and will post it as soon as I find it

Actually clickers were toys that were quite popular in the 50's and 60's so perhaps a toy store might be able to help you? I remember we used to drive mother and daddy crazy with the noise they made.

OMG I'm a sucker for a good site. i just ordered a clicker starter kit so I will let you know how it goes. Maybe it will help with introducing my two furbabies

I didn't know you could do that, either. Mine are Pounce can trained, they come running when I shake it. Faile is also computer trained, she senses when I am on the computer and comes to sit on my keyboard so I pay attention to her instead of anything else. As if there were anything else.

I have Toes trained (or used to anyway) to do this:

if I'm holding him and he looks up at me and my lips are puckered (as in for a kiss) he sticks his nose up to be kissed
