Cats are usually pretty independent and aloof, but they can be trained to do things that make you happy. In this article I’ll show you how to train your cat to hug you by using a dish of cat food as bait and sitting on the floor with her. You don’t want to get frustrated if your cat walks away at first; instead try gentle encouragement!

USE A DISH OF CAT FOOD

If your cat is a natural hugger, you can use food as a reward. Place the food dish on the floor and let your pet come over to eat. The more often they come over, the more likely it is that they will want to continue coming over for treats later on in the day or even at night!

Note: You should always make sure that your pet has enough water before giving them any treats or toys—and don’t be afraid of getting messy yourself!

SIT ON THE FLOOR WITH YOUR CAT

The first thing you need to do is sit on the floor with your cat. You can either do this while they are sleeping or when they’re awake, but it’s best if they are alert and ready for action.

Don’t force your cat into doing anything! If they don’t want to sit next to you or lay down, don’t force them! It will only end up making things worse for both of you in the long run. Just let them be who they are—and appreciate that it takes effort just like everything else does (even if we think it doesn’t).

IF YOUR CAT WALKED AWAY, DON’T PANIC!

If your cat walks away, don’t panic! It’s perfectly normal for them to be a little shy. Just give them some time and try again later.

If you’re still having trouble getting your pet to hug you, don’t worry—it happens! Just keep trying and be patient with yourself as well as with your cat.

GENTLY PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND HER

Now that you have your cat, it’s time to get her used to being in your arms. The first step is gently putting your arms around her and saying hello. You can do this by simply placing one arm around the cat while holding onto a piece of furniture or wall with the other hand. Letting go of anything will prevent accidentally squeezing your pet too hard and causing injury.

If at any point during this process the cat becomes nervous (or afraid), stop! It’s okay if they want to run away from you right now—just don’t chase them down; let them go on their way without trying anything else until later on when things feel more comfortable between both parties again so as not make them feel unsafe anymore than what already does happen regularly due lack confidence issues caused by past experiences involving humans’ interactions with animals (cats especially).

DON’T GET FRUSTRATED

If your cat doesn’t want to be hugged, don’t get angry or upset. If you do this, your cat may think that hugging people is not a good thing and will avoid it in the future. Instead of getting frustrated and giving up on trying to train your cat to hug you, try these tips:

  • Don’t force them into doing anything they don’t want to do. Remember that cats are animals—they’re not really thinking about what we want at all times! So if they don’t want hugs right now but do later on down the road (or even later tonight), then go ahead with those plans as well!
  • Don’t give up if you don’t see results right away either; persistence pays off over time so keep trying until eventually there’s some kind of change which makes both parties happy!

IT TAKES TIME TO TRAIN YOUR CAT, BUT IT’S DEFINITELY WORTH IT

While it’s true that your cat will not be as easy to train as a dog, it’s still possible. Training your cat can give you and them both the opportunity to bond in a way that’s just not possible with dogs. If you have the patience, then training your cat could be one of the best things ever!

Training helps make them feel safe around people and other animals, so they’ll relax around us more often. It also makes them less afraid when we’re holding them or petting them—which means less stress on both parties involved!

CONCLUSION

train your cat to hug

The first step to training your cat is getting them used to being touched. Once they are comfortable with this, it’s time for the fun part: hugging! You can build up from there and start training other behaviors like sitting down or jumping on your lap. Your cat will thank you for helping her become a more well-rounded cat by learning how to play with humans too!
