Experiment

Experiment

  • I am attempting to teach my cat (Snickel) to speak in order to receive his food

  • I will point to him, that being the physical command and me saying “Speak” as the vocal command

  • I will do this for 4 days, In which time I will have preformed this test 8 times


Materials used

Materials Used

  • Cat Food (Friskies)

  • Bowl (with food in it)


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • I believe that he can learn this behavior but it will take some time. At least a week or two but I think I might be able to get it earlier than that we will see


Trails 1 2 day 1

Trails 1-2 (Day 1)

  • I first started out by holding the food bowl above his head and doing the vocal and physical command.

  • The first time I did it he sat down. I was really interested by this. I believe he had been previously. In order for him to understand that he needed to meow I would make sounds myself and lower the bowl giving him an idea. Afterwards I let him have it. The second time was the same


Trials 1 2 day 1

Trials 1-2 (Day 1)


Trials 3 4 day 2

Trials 3-4 (Day 2)

  • During these trials I actually started to see him learning this he first sat and then I said the commands and he didn’t exactly meow but it was a light meow but he did learn something and later that night he did it again in order to get his food


Trials 3 4 day 21

Trials 3 -4 (Day 2)


Trials 5 6 day 3

Trials 5-6 (Day 3)

  • Once again did the same stuff and he meowed fully this time. And in the evening as well I think he actually learned it


Trials 5 6 day 31

Trials 5-6 (Day 3)


Trials 7 8 day 4

Trials 7-8 (Day 4)

  • I did not even have to say anything on the last day I just presented the bowl and he meowed. I didn’t have to say the commands he just did it. He finally learned how to do it


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • The test subject fully learned this behavior. He will now do this every time I feed him.
