Train cat to alert?

by Stephanie Lynn

My two-year-old with autism was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. My orange tabby, Clementine, has been a mama to her since she was born. She's very protective, very gentle, and ridiculously tolerant.

I am wondering if it might be possible to train her to alert me if the baby stops breathing? If it is, how would I go about it, or who could help me? Thanks for your time!

That might be possible

This might be possible, but you'd need a really good cat trainer to pull it off. I can't say if there are any cat trainers in your area, but I'd start asking the cat people in your town if they know anyone.
