A New York Times Bestseller
"I have to hand it to Bradshaw and Ellis: Once you suss out their basic cat-training philosophy, their methods totally work." --Slate

We often assume that cats can't be trained, and don't need to be. But in The Trainable Cat, bestselling anthrozoologist John Bradshaw and cat expert Sarah Ellis show that cats absolutely must be trained in order to enrich the bond between pet and owner. Full of training tips and exercises--from introducing your cat to a new baby to helping them deal with visits to the vet--The Trainable Cat is the essential cat bible for cat owners and lovers.

"I doubt you'll find a more well-informed or scientific book on cats that better shows you how feline thinking works."--Times (UK)

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2016 – Renowned anthrozoologist Bradshaw (Cat Sense and Dog Sense) and feline behavioral specialist Ellis provide readers with a comprehensive look at what motivates cats, and explain how to train cats by understanding the way they perceive the world. Training cats, the authors assert, benefits owners and cats by making shared environments less stressful for cats and more pleasant for all. Practical training tips and explanations as to why cats behave as they do such as scratching furniture or attacking their owner's feet are provided in each chapter. Exercises include crate training a cat, ensuring tranquility in multicat or multi-animal homes, and safely clipping a cat's claws. Cat lovers will appreciate the sensible advice and in-depth explanations of feline behavior.
