I think it depends on the cat. My cat Shakti comes when I call his name. He also comes when I wistle. If I shake a tin of kitty treats, he caon't get there fast enough. We don't have "sit, lie down, roll over or beg" but he does come when I call him. I really think it depends on the cat

I agree that it depends on the cat. Each cat is unique in its own way. Some cats will come when called. Ohter cats will come when they want to! :-) The old treat tin works wonders when its time for a vet trip doesn't it?

My cat goes to toilet to release her stool by herslef. This is of course the result of our lecturing her on potty training. Using the toilet is an advanced skill to animals like cats. People train cats to go to wash room by themselves, why not other trick.

Cats have an attitude. If they want to respond they will, if not, they won't. My grandson's cat wont respond to me calling him but will when the grandson calls him. All I have to do is open the food bag and he will run to me. I think cats really do think like Garfield of the comics.

Number one thing to remember about cats, they're not like dogs. They won't do things because you want them to. They'll do things if THEY want to..and you have to present a pretty good reason to a cat to do anything..then it's all just a manner of comunnicating, the way people usually 'train' dogs. All cats are individuals so they all have different opinions on what's a good reason to do something. A few cats WILL do something because they notice it makes their human happy..but that's a rare cat all the same.

My cat has learned a trick! He will put his nose against your nose for a treat. You don't even have to have the treat in hand. Ask him for "kisses" and that's what he does. It was so cute, so I began giving him treats for doing it. THe first cat I ever had that did anything like this!
