Excerpt: With These Feline Traits You Might Gain The Keys to Persuasion

The Keys to PersuasionIn the following extract from Gert J Scholtz’s The Keys to Persuasion, the author discusses the “cat system”. This persuasion system is based on the author’s house cat, which he calls a “persuasion master”. Scholtz’s The Keys to Persuasion provides you with the tools to also become an expert at persuasion.

Meet a persuasion master: our house cat. Every evening, as I sit down at my computer, he jumps onto the desk and starts nudging me – softly at first, but more insistently after a while. The reason? He wants to lie on my chair. After some more caressing and nudging, he jumps behind my back and wriggles his way between me and the chair. On a cold winter’s evening, the warm cat at my back feels cosy and, after I have adjusted my seating, I let the cat be. He succeeds in claiming his position on the chair every time. How does he do this?
