Why should dogs have all the fun? This is an online positive reinforcement based exercise class for your cat, led by Sit Stay Squat!
These exercises and tricks will increase your cat’s muscular strength, core stability, body awareness, flexibility, confidence, and training skills.
This is a follow along Zoom class where Sit Stay Squat will go over how to teach your cat to circle, back up, crawl, and jump over your arm. (So plan to attend with your cat!)
These beginner friendly tricks have tons of benefits for your cat’s health and can help to reduce their risk of future injuries. This is a cat training class, so please have some high value treats on hand that you can use for luring your cat to participate in the exercises & tricks. We love using something extra high value such as Churu Lickable Tubes, to keep the cats highly motivated to engage with us!
There is no prior training experience required to participate in this fun, FREE (pay what you want), beginner friendly virtual class.

This year’s 2023 Edmonton Cat Festival is a WEEK of events!
Since 2014, the Edmonton International Cat Festival has held a cat pawty to celebrate cats, cat people and cat culture, while raising money for cat rescues helping cats in need (donating $130,000 for local rescues!) Since 2020 we have hosted virtual events due to the pandemic.
While the 2023 in-purrson events will be smaller in scale than our typical one-day pawties, 100% of purr-ceeds raised from events and sponsors will continue to be donated to a local rescue helping cats in need. This year’s selected donation recipient is Furget Me Not!
We’ll also be encouraging you to take advantage of Cat-themed promotions across the city as part of the Cat Fest Week Cat Pawspurrt!
