Shelter Cats Learning How To High-Five To Find A Home

posted by Kari Steele -

Hey kitty. Wanna get out of the shelter? You'd better learn how to high-five! 

Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy has developed a program called Cat Pawsitive

The purpose is to help cats maintain social skills while waiting to be adopted from shelters. About 30 shelters around the country have signed up to teach cats how to sit, jump and yes, high-five on command. 

There are 50 more shelters scheduled to join up this year.  The training will hopefully show potential adopters the cat's real personality. 

 Do you have a pet (other than a dog) that knows any tricks?
