Once we understand the three different Cat Types, we know how we will get through to our cat in a training situation and we will be able to choose Next Cat to blend with Current Cats, with confidence.Alpha Cat Type
These are cats who feel confident about changing their own environment.
Training them consists mainly of outwitting them. These are the cats who have to have everything be “their own idea.”
With their boundless reservoirs of brains and energy, we need to keep an Alpha cat busy and amused.
Beta Cat Type
These are cats who feel confident about getting us to change the environment.
Training them consists of fostering communication and negotiation. Beta cats are glad to cooperate, once they know what it is we want.
With their strong social skills and eagerness for companionship, we need to make sure our Betas are never lonely.
Gamma Cat Type
These are cats who don’t know the environment can be changed.
Training them consists of anticipating their needs and letting them know how much we care. These cats hate to be a bother.
The Gamma’s retiring nature will bloom under dedicated fussing, and they must never be neglected.
