    Default Cats can learn pointless tricks too!

    Here's a youtube video showing a cat being bribed into performing typically canine tricks:

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gKPpXkPzFA&feature=related[/youtube]

    The interesting thing about this cat is that is seems to be distinguishing between sounds in order to figure out what it's trainer wants it to do, unlike a dog, which relies mainly on visual cues (hand lowering to signify down, finger twirling for roll over, etc).

    Interesting.

    Maybe that explains why when I set food out for my cat, then point in that direction, she just ends up staring at my hand instead of the food. Next time I'll just say "Go eat, you hairy bitch!"

    The only dog thing my cats do is play fetch.

    My cat learned how to turn the bathroom faucetts on. Unfortunately she doesn't turn them off when she's done.
