Have You Seen This? How to tame a cat with one easy trick

THE CONCRETE JUNGLE — Cats are known for having minds of their own.

If they want attention while you’re working, they’re going to get it by walking all over your keyboard. When they’re hungry in the middle of the night, they’ll do everything they can to get you to cave and feed them early. When you have somewhere to be, they’ll fall asleep on your lap with no sign of moving. (And everyone knows you can’t make the first move when a cat is asleep on your lap.)

Even though it’s a myth that cats can’t be trained, it still takes special techniques and know-how to find any success.

You could use treats and clicker training, or you could use this one simple trick — get a professional sugar glider to tame your cat, Wild West style.

In the video, you’ll see a sugar glider and a kitten facing off on the street. The glider’s technique is simple and easy to follow along: - Sniff around a little bit.

  • Stand on your back legs and spread your front paws to show the cat who’s boss.
  • Spring forward and do a total face-hugger move like you’re starring in the movie “Alien.”
  • Make your way to the cat’s back and ride it like a bucking bronco.

To be absolutely clear, this article is only a cute way to talk about this video. No one involved with this article recommends that you try this at home or replicate this video in any way.
