    I just held a treat out in my closed hand and he would sniff at it and paw at it but then he would just sit down and look up, so then I would say sit and give him his treat. I just kept doing it and now as long as I have a treat, he will sit as soon as I tell him to:D.

    I've seen Maine coons that can sit, lie down, roll over and play dead :D
    When we get our little baby home we might try some of those tricks! :)

    Nicky10 might be a good person to talk to about this - I know she's clicker training her rabbit :lol:

    Next step is high-fiving. Easy to train if your cat is food orientated:)

    I stopped trying to teach Panda anything as he was quick to learn sit but anything else he just got frustrated with me and started to attack me:rolleyes:. But today for some unknown reason I decided to have another go at it and now I have a cat who not only sits on command, he now lies down on command:D. I will make a video later and post it, so everyone can see my little star.

    Just think I needed to be a little more persistent with him.

    This post has taken sooo long to type cause the little monkey wont leave me alone now :lol:

    I had a cat once who would sit on command. It was my proudest moment. :)

    Makes me feel like I should dig out the clicker and start over with my unruly dogs and maybe get the cats in line. How cool would a line of 6 cats, sitting and high fiving, be?

    You've inspired me!! Of course, I may come back on in a month, having needed a rest cure and meds to overcome the stress of trying to train them :lol::lol:

    That would be very cool, you could have your own little cat army :lol:.

    I dont think any of my other cats would sit for me. Might sound silly but I think me and Panda kinda have a bound that I dont seem to have with any of our other cats x

    Nice job! Have you tried fetch?

    Here's our eldest fetching - Lenin Cat fetch - YouTube
    We can also do sit and lay down, but only with a clicker in my hand at the moment.
