"I have to hand it to Bradshaw and Ellis: Once you suss out their basic cat-training philosophy, their methods totally work." --Slate

We often assume that cats can't be trained, and don't need to be. But in The Trainable Cat, bestselling anthrozoologist John Bradshaw and cat expert Sarah Ellis show that cats absolutely must be trained in order to enrich the bond between pet and owner. Full of training tips and exercises--from introducing your cat to a new baby to helping them deal with visits to the vet--The Trainable Cat is the essential cat bible for cat owners and lovers.

"I doubt you'll find a more well-informed or scientific book on cats that better shows you how feline thinking works."--Times (UK)

Some very good content about how to train a cat to do important behaviours like going happily to the vet, receiving medication, and adjusting to a new baby or other resident. Interesting details about cats are shared. Unfortunately the somewhat academic writing style makes it a tough slog.
