Yes, cats can be trained, using the same scientifically based techniques used by marine mammal parks and zoos. My cats, Roxie and Stitch, have been trained to give high fives, walk on a leash, come when called, jump through a hoop and yawn. I took them to a cat show where they won the tricks class. I don’t know if it was the trick (I had audience members do the trick with the cats) or the walking up to the stage on leashes!
