Food training was obvious for us, but with no real success. Food brings the cat into arms reach but the cat doesn't seem to be connecting us feeding it with us (if you know what I mean). The cat is not aggressive at all, just slinky?, it recoils from touch and never maintains eye contact unless your ten feet away. The cat has an annoying habit of running across your feet (think blood) and climbs to the top of our kitchen cabinets and meows...nonstop for hours, at 3am. My daughter has quit talking about the cat and if she does she refers to "the bad cat"- that in itself gets on my nerves because I enjoyed cats as a child. I am still hoping, with some novel training ideas, to convert this "problem" cat into my daughters pet and a regular house cat.
