Remember, dogs will do tricks for the sheer joy of pleasing their master. Cats, on the other hand, will master behaviors to get something out of it.
Here is a wonderful video from our local favorite shelter (that Ms. Boo was adopted from) that demonstrates that it is not only possible, but also beneficial to train your cats for their well being!
Clicker training is effective, but not the only method. Food is a huge motivator for your cat's inner predator, so it is best to train kitty when she's hungry and use a yummy treat for a reward. Hunting/play time becomes training time that is enjoyable and mentally stimulating for you both. Repetition is key.
There are lots of wonderful cat training resources on the web, so do some research and you'll see that the sky is the limit! Here is another video to inspire you.
