My cat won't allow me to pick her up after two years in my house. How do you train them?

To be truthful, I've respected her wish not to be picked up and so don't really try........

I’ve found the best way to gain a cat’s trust and make them comfortable around you is to engage them in play. Drag a shoelace around them and let them focus on it, not you.

I didn’t think this feral momma would come around, and planned on making her an outdoor feral resident on my property. but now she’s the quintessential house cat, joining me in bed as soon as I sit down and at the table.
