A Scottish fold and you do not just have to sit around the house all day and be bored. There are, a few activities that you and your Scottish fold can do. Most pet cat owners do not think that cats are capable of doing the same kinds of activities that a dog or other pets are capable of however this is not all true.
In fact, the feline species is a highly intelligent creature. The Scottish fold is one of the most intelligent of all of the feline breeds. The Scottish fold is capable of walking on a leash, cat agility training events, and cats can do several different kinds of tricks. Some of the tricks that people have witnessed are things like tight rope walking cats, and cat that jump thru rings above the ground, as well as cats that can jump over hurdles and run thru an agility course faster than a dog can.
The Scottish fold is quite agile and extremely capable of any one or even all of these different activities. However, it does take a great deal of time, patients, and training. Both the owner and the Scottish fold must work at these kinds of events daily to prefect the tasks.
It would be the best to begin with the simplest of tasks like the leash training. Owners can begin by putting a comfortable fitting halter or collar on the Scottish fold. Then after the fold has worn the collar or halter a few days, attach the leash to either the halter or the collar and let the fold become use to the leash. Once the fold used to the leash being, attached then the owner should call the fold and slowly walk beside the fold.
A treat may be, held down beside you to temp the fold to go along with you if, needed. When the Scottish fold does walk a short distance with you then offer the fold the treat and praise the fold for a job well done. Repeat the lesson each time walking a little further. Once you feel the fold has mastered the art of walking indoors then you can venture outside.
Before long, you and your Scottish fold will be walking around the neighborhood. However you may shock several of your neighbors as they are not accustom to seeing a well mannered, leash walking cat.
Then you will be able to move on to the next type of activity that you wish to participate in with your Scottish fold. It may take more time to train the Scottish fold for some of the cat agility tasks. However, with patients, it is possible.
The main point is that you and your Scottish fold are not sitting at home bored stiff staring at each other with nothing to do. You and you fold will be spending time together doing something good for the both of you. Instead of wasting all day doing nothing, activities are much more productive and healthy for the both of you.
