showing techniques from award-winning article: Training Your Cat like a Dog

In this video Terzo performs all  his "tricks" including give one paw and then the other, not touching a treat until he's allowed, sitting with both paws on Bobbi's palm, and several others. See him at the computer as well as playing in his tunnels. Thanks to Diana Lester for producing this wonderful memory.
