To encourage this essentially settle on the unique recognize, a low table or stool is perfect. Place a treat on it. As the feline grabs the aroma and strolls over. Snap and say "Away".
Routinely put treats on the stool, screen the feline, and when she searches out the treat say "Away". Really soon, "Away" is sufficient to send the feline hastening to the stool in case…
