I often talk to my clients about how to mentally stimulate their cats as part of an overall behavior program. I tell ( and show) people how to teach their cats to do commands such as sit, go to place and even some target training. I also encourage some people to get their cats into agility. Certainly not every cat is cut out for this, but if you have a cat who is motivated by food or toys, you should certainly try to teach your cat something!
