My anni-kitty is halaious, he fetches, comes when called by his name, vocal more then any cat i know complete with amping it up when somebody is at the door. not that he cant appreciate some fresh catnip... but i swear he could be part human too... every morning he wakes me if i dont wake on time, every eve he sits at my feet when it gets time for bed... what things does your cat-dog do?

My kitten is very sweet. She is comming when I call her name. She wants to be close to my dogs all the time. She likes dogs food better than cat food. She is first to say good morning. I think she acts this way because she is growing up with two dogs.

good theory about growning up with dogs. be careful with the cat eating the dog food, protine content is much lower in dog food... could cause a health issue (just a suggestion LOL) but how adorable that shes so close to dogs!

The vocalizing means the cat's very happy. They are sometimes more human than some humans. Wait for the sense of humor to kick in, when he starts playing jokes. I had a very happy time with a cat who really loved to play tricks, like tickling my feet, among other things. "Playing with the cat" has never had so many other meanings. This one used to decide when I should be playing with her, and would attack my board games, and come and sit in the middle of some battle, until I did, like some huge, furry, atomic bomb. If he's learned to tell the time, that also means that he'll know when his favorite shows are on... Just record the stuff you want to watch, it'll save time, until he learns to record things for himself, anyway.

yah ive learned of that joke thing. ive had miscarrages (4 in the past 2 years-please dont say sorry.. dont want it) and every single time i was preggers those 2 years, my pack of pads would be carried around like a prized mouse... only to be opened individually and hidden... uncanny that cat. reading a book is difficult... thankfully anni has not learned to be a lap cat so sitting up usually does the trick... there goes my bed time story :P

The only thing my cats do like the dogs is eat the dog food, but then again, my dogs like to eat the cat food. I have a few cats that like to rub up against the dogs. And I have one dog that will "groom" the cats. I guess the animals are all backwards in my house.

not backwards just the "pack" thing going... i think that cats, even those that are the independent types, need something to be a "pack" with. why not dogs... besides, dogs have bigger toungs which means less hair balls for the kitty! LOL

I have two cats. One is like a cat cat. Sleeps, eats, and makes. The other is like a dog. Comes on command anytime, is affectionate, fetches, and yaks up a storm.

I have one cat that acts that way. Comes when he's called unlike most cats that take a message and gets back with you a few hours later. He's not vocal really except when he wants in or out, he goes outside but he stays right near the house. He hardly ever uses his claws, in fact when we first got him we thought he was declawed for over a year until he used them once. He's just very gentle. He does think he's a lap dog and will curl up there but he doesn't do the kneeding like most cats do. The rest of our cats though act like typical cats but Oliver is unique.

The cats I have now are really typically cat like. I had a Siamese cat when I was a little kid and he was a lot more dog like. Maybe some breeds are that way.
