Like a dog, your kitten may be able to play fetch. She may even learn to sit and stay on command. But a cat will not easily become a companion dog who follows directions or is trained to live outside the house.
What do you need from me? You need two things: patience and lots of love. If you have been saving up for your dream puppy, please take this time for yourself as well as an animal shelter that can provide long-term care for her if necessary. And remember—dogs are one thing but cats are quite another! It’s very important that no matter how much money you spend on training them, they remain 100 percent pets so it’s worth investing in other ways too…like getting them spayed/neutered first!
