GO!

Are you obedient?

This is a place to gain some understanding of cat behavior and to assist people in training their cats and dealing with common behavior problems, regardless of the method(s) used. Keep in mind that you may be receiving advice from other cat owners and lovers...not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a trainer or behaviorist!

Objection; vague, ambiguous and unintilligible.
Define "obedient."

Hmmmm...I have to side with Selket on this one. smile See...I have my mommy trained pretty well to think I'm obedient because when I do whatever she wants, she gives me what I want. It's a pretty even trade...well, no it's not. I get the better half of the trade. :p

Though, Mommy and I do work very well together to kill buggies. When they come into our house, I track 'em and chirp to get Mommy's attention. She then jumps up from wherever she is and finds the buggy that I've got pinned under my paw. Then she grabs the paper towel, asks me nicely to move, and then scoops it up and kills it and throws it away. We're a tag team. big grin My favorite bugs to kill are fruit flies because they can get concussions pretty easily and it makes them even easier to catch after they've been knocked around a little. wink

*giggles* Well...I start to purr at her, which I learned from you and your lovely sister means I'm profoundly something. So when she does her tricks like that and I start to purr...yeah, I guess it is pretty much laughing at her. wink But she doesn't know any different. In fact, she seems to enjoy it because she gets all happy and excited whenever we kill buggies together. smile Oh yeah...and I don't actually eat the buggies. Mommy usually gets them up before I can munch on 'em. But I do get a few swats from my paw on the buggies, so it's almost as good. wink

Only for my Mommy! Sure, she's just a little girl, but I always come when she calls me because I know how much she loves me. And I know I'll get a good belly rub. I do almost everything she asks me to do!

ummm, I think coming when called is how the humans "think" we are obedient, but it is more like "love" or being polite. And safety, because sometimes they call because something important is happening [or going to happen, like shrimp...]

I was a lot better before my parents got a dog but I'm still a good boy. I come when called and definately know what "no" means and listen. the only thing i really try to get away with is going in the garage when i get a chance...

Not even a little bit. I do look at people when they call my name though...most of the time....
