1) Feed them
2) Don't chase them
3) Find an easy treat--my cat likes ice
4) Once they're comfortable with general closeness, meet their eyes and close yours.
5) Play with them but stop before they get bored.

My mom had 2 cats. She used to leave the kitchen window open on nice days so they could wander in and out. Then suddenly one day she had 3 cats.

cats can't like you.  the closest they come is pretending so you will feed / pet them.

So this cat hangs out with us at the outdoor Gym I lift at. He's an old, skittish, ex feral that got adopted by the house next door. We pet him, play with him, he even lets my buddy pick him up. The other neighbors saw us and said "I can't believe he lets you pet him, my kids call him bad cat because he's bitten or scratched everyone of them." I said "he's not bad, just misunderstood." Love that guy even though his favorite thing is to stand right in your bar/ foot path when you lift.

Yeah and if you combine food/pets when they're kittens they develop a psychosis where they refuse to eat unless they're being touched and will try to trip you every time you walk down the hall for the next two decades because when you fall your hands are closer to their food bowl.

I have a dog
2 cats, one of whom thinks she's a dog, as she was the first kitty and the dog played mommy. The other car, well he was a cat cat, but now he hops like a rabbit cause we got a rabbit this summer.
1 rabbit who thinks he's a cat.

Our first cat was pretty low maintenance with feeding. If we were away for a week, we could gill his bowl with kibble and he'd ration himself. If we were away for a month, we''d have friends stop by once or twice a week.

We attempted the same strategy with our second cat. Filled the bowl and went to do some last minute errands. Desdemona ate two weeks of food in 20 minutes. I ran out to PetCo and picked up one of the timed automatic dispensers. She figured out how to knock it over within 10 minutes and scatter food all over the floor. I loved that cat, but she was a giant biatch.

How to get a cat to like you...  Why bother?  It's not like you will be able to tell the difference.

What? Farkers can't lift? Nerds don't work out? Everyone I train with are the biggest nerds I've ever met and worked in a nerd bar.
