Cat flap training

So this week has been mostly about cat flap training with the kittens. I’ve got them used to coming and going by tying it open for a weeks. Now it’s time to introduce the actual flap. It’s so interesting to see their different approaches.

Dodo is very precise and measured. He’s adopted the paws, nose, squeeze through technique. It’s slower but very effective.

Hugo, on the other hand, has gone for the brute force approach. He has the focus of an Olympic long jumper as he stares the flap down. He rocks back and forth picking his moment to launch. You can practically seeing him psyching himself up. He then launched his entire body at the flap!!

It’s definitely a very interesting technique. Sadly his timing isn’t always spot on, so he has bounced off a few times.

I know I shouldn’t laugh…..
