13# Rub the paw:
Begin by rubbing your kitty’s paws, and give her a treat for letting you touch it. When she takes off her paws, do not go against the motion, but make sure you keep holding it; you need her to understand that even if she takes away her paws, you’ll keep gently holding. When she’s done kicking, offer her a treat and let her paw go. Repeat as long as you can from time to time, it’s a good training for her!
