can cats be trained??

my new kitty's a bully. I think since she's so full of energy she just truly wants to play, and when i take the piggy out for a snack on the couch my Twiggy comes and sniffs and smacks piggy in the head with her paw. I don't think it's a sign of hunting on the cat's part. She rolls on her back and then reaches out to slap piggy lol

Lil' Twiggy also likes to sit by and on piggy's cage and watch her eat and drink and whatnot. But yet again she tends to smack her in the head a couple of times. And piggy looks around confused and sniffs kitty's paw, then she gets a smack again.

Trying to find ways to teach cat slapping isn't nice! Can the spray bottle training technique be used for this??

ps. piggy isn't stresed out from the cat.She'd just like the bullying to stop lol

awwwww, ADORABLE!

Sounds as if Lil' Twiggy thinks piggy is a kitten, and a playmate! I'm sure a few squirts of the water bottle would help her learn smacking isn't tolerated.... but it does just sound like innocent kitten play.
