Training by Princess Cat

Do you know training is important?  Fanta and I both work very hard at it.

Fanta has trained the human to know when she when to take her out, when she wants cuddles, when she wants walks, and when she wants food. 

I’ve trained her to always give me kisses when she walks past and I’m in kissing reach, to only groom me when I go to the bathroom and sit on the bath mat, and to give me treats when I go to the cupboard with the treats in them.  

Importantly, I’ve trained the human to scoop the litter tray the minute I’ve pooped in it.  Cleanliness is important. 

We’ve both got her trained to give tummy tickles when we lie on the floor with our legs in the air, and to throw toys down the hallway for us to chase.

I think when you own a human, it’s important to keep them well trained.

Princess, a sealpoint ragdoll cat.


Princess is a seal-point ragdoll cat. Her hobbies include naps, waking the human in the middle of the night, tummy tickles, knocking things off shelves, evading grooming, and petty theft (stealing paintbrushes, pincushions, etc.) Her special skills include jingle ball and fluffy mouse chasing. Her key goal in life is to be adored by everyone, but not actually touched unless she specifically requests it. She is never allowed outside, partly to protect wildlife, partly to keep debris out of her hair, and mostly because she is so naïve she wouldn’t survive five minutes outside. Also known as Pretty Kitty and Snuggle Cat.

  1. Thank you for the reminder, Princess. It takes Tank, Phoenix, Daisy, Harley, Walter, Poppy, and I to keep our human up to date on her training. She’s a lot of work. – Pepper
