It’s been about 10 days since we got the kitties and I have to say, they are doing really well.  Trick has always been more affectionate, purring and enjoying being touched.  But Treat is getting better.  I am becoming a good secondary reinforcer, I think.  He looks at me now and knows I’m the key to his food.  We give them some food from the dish, but mostly we feed to them for training, just like we would with puppies.  Their back & forth recalls in the living room are good and they are both responding well to their names.  We are also working on having them come to us and hand touch so that when someone puts out a hand they move toward it.   Here’s a short video of Judy working with Trick.
