If you want your cat to sit on your lap, you will first need to create a positive association between the two activities. Start by rewarding your cat when it sits on your lap, and then gradually increase the duration of the reward until your cat is sitting for a longer period of time. You can also try using a toy to reward your cat when it sits on your lap, as this will help to keep it entertained. Once your cat is sitting on your lap for a longer period of time, you can start training it to stay there by rewarding it every time it stays seated. You can also use a clicker to reinforce good behaviour, as this will help to create a positive association between the sound of the clicker and the reward.

Shamima Begum would be hanged if she returned to Bangladesh, according to her lawyers, and she is now effectively stateless. Sajid Javid, the then-Home Secretary, should have considered the implications of stripping Ms Begum's citizenship when she had never visited Bangladesh and had no passport for the country.'It is clear that he gave no consideration to the prospect that the deprivation decision would render the appellant de facto stateless,' said Ms Begum's lawyer, Dan Squires KC. According to Home Office documents, Begum's 'de jure' status was confirmed internally only on February 18, 2019, the day before her citizenship was revoked.'There is nothing in any of the Home Secretary's evidence that suggests that consideration was given - prior to the deprivation decision, or indeed at any time - to matters relating to de facto citizenship,' Mr Squires wrote in his submissions.
ITV colleagues express their "shock and sadness" as pundit Nadia Nadim is forced off the air following the death of her mother in a digger accident: Star says she "lost the most important person" who "gave me life twice" after pair fled Taliban together
Viewers noticed how women's football star and refugee Nadia Nadim, 34, was part of ITV's coverage throughout Denmark's goalless draw with Tunisia on Tuesday night, but was no longer present after the final whistle (pictured left: Nadia during last night's broadcast while right, with her mother and inset, her touching tribute on Instagram).According to later reports in Danish media, she was struck from behind by a digger and died instantly.Nadia and her mother bravely fled Afghanistan when she was 11 years old, after hiding for three years after her Army general father was executed by the Taliban. In a touching tribute today, Nadia branded her mother a "warrior" who gave her life "twice" - once when she gave birth to her, and again when she risked everything to give her a safer life in Europe.ITV confirmed Nadia had left the studio early but initially refused to elaborate before the news broke on Wednesday afternoon; a spokesman later stated that 'everyone' at the broadcaster was supporting Nadia and thinking of her and her family.Hadima leaves four other daughters in addition to Nadia: Giti, Diana, Muskan, and Mujda.
When she discovered he had changed his identity to hide an appalling history of child sex attacks, a mother-of-five killed a paedophile, 77, for abusing her three sons.nbsp;
In 2014, Sarah Sands (right, with her sons) went to the home of Michael Pleasted, 77, in a nearby block of flats in east London and stabbed him eight times. Paedophile Pleasted (inset) had abused three of her children and other young boys on the estate and had already been convicted for a string of child abuse offences.Mrs Sands was convicted of manslaughter rather than murder for the killing because she was considered to have lost control, and she was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison. It was revealed that Pleasted, whom the family thought of as a friendly and helpful neighbor on their east London estate, had changed his name from Robin Moult to conceal a long history of offending against children.Mrs Sands is now campaigning for a tightening of the rules on sex offenders being allowed to change their names, which were not known when she was jailed because of their right to anonymity.Her brave sons have all turned 18 and waived their right to anonymity to support their mother. One of her sons, Bradley (second from right in left picture), admitted that when he learned she had stabbed Pleasted to death, he immediately thought 'hats off' to his mother.His twin siblings said they felt'safer' after he was killed.nbsp;Reece (third from right in left picture), then 11, said it was 'nice knowing he was dead.'Mrs Sands was also filmed sobbing outside the flat where she stabbed her victim, saying, 'He took everything from me,' and they all responded immediately and in unison: 'Oh yeah, definitely.'He ripped my family apart, and there are no words to describe how it eats you up from the inside.'
