Habits are how you will train your kitty to bring you toys. Some cats will simply meow when they want to play and casually bat their toy, however if you give them positive reinforcement every time they carry a toy mouse or stuffed toy they will continue to bring the toy without the reinforcement of a treat. For an example my kitty, Spooky, is two. She brings me a stuffed animal every afternoon or evening when she wants to play. She lays it down near the end of my couch and meows until I recognize the good deed and begin to play with her.
I ended up at the pound. Just for a look, I thought, although that was not to be. It was so noisy, the dogs would not stop barking. I went into the cats and kittens aisle. The worker lady kept trying to get me interested in this or that cat, but I definitely wanted a kitten. In one of the cages I saw a cute little ginger and white kitten that looked exactly like a cat I had when I was a child. I was allowed into the cage to pat him. However, as soon as I got inside another little terror jumped on my shoe and began scratching and chewing it. I picked him up and patted him before deciding he was the one.
Reinforcement starts at any age, but it is typically wise to start out with a kitten. Cats cannot distinguish words, but they are very astute in distinguishing tones of your voice. They will know they have done something wrong just by the tone of voice you use. This is why it is important to use your upset voice when they have done something wrong, otherwise they will become confused. Let us go back to reinforcement. Reinforcement is either positive or negative. Water is a negative reinforcement for a cat or kitten because they typically despise being wet. Some positive reinforcement can be hugs or fully body petting, treats, or play time.
