Fear in a cat can be ‘trained in’ by bad experiences. This infographic is about ‘training out’ that acquired fear (fear developed through experience) through a sensitive, graded and progressive approach to desensitizing the fearful and anxious cat.

Ironically, the same methods are used when ‘training’ a human to chip away at their fear of cats. It is desensitisation.
