Temperament and Training
As I'm teaching Dewey Kitty his next command - the sit, my husband asks, "Why aren't you training Louie?" "Because he's not a pain," I say. Louie is the other house cat, the docile kitty, who enjoys his occasional pet and seldom makes a sound. He's the cat that never gets in trouble. The traits that make Dewey Kitty easy to train -- curiosity, socialability, high food drive -- also make him difficult to live with at times.
