Kittens in training!

Lots of dog owners take their pets to be trained, but have you ever heard of a class for kittens?

Well, cat training is the latest thing in America, where people are flocking to special 'kittengarten' classes.

Just like dogs, the fluffy creatures are taught how to sit when they're told, and even how to walk on a lead.

And it's not just the kittens who have lessons to learn, the owners are given classes on the best ways to care for them too.
