Can your pet do anything unusual?

I've had some interesting pets but it's hard to top this.

A mean feat indeed, but if he was really clever he'd spell his name right.

I have a black and white English long hair rescue kat that can forget where its dinner is if rotated 180 degrees to food bowl

Lucyfer can clear a room in about 5 seconds. Not bad for a Labrador.

I've got a cat that can clear my 6ft fence with a rabbit in his mouth

Cheers

A guy had a dog that would make a bolt for the door if he applied a heated branding iron on its backside.

When I was a kid, my family had a budgie that loved tormenting our cocker spaniel. The bird would wait until the dog was asleep and then land beside him to pull the hair on his feet and jolt him out of a dead sleep. Patty was much smarter than the cocker who never even came close to catching him. That bird also came when you called him--much better than any dog I've ever had. We could call him from any room in the house and he'd always find us.

I had a dog (British Bulldog) who had a great knack for knowing when I had a bad day. She managed to make me feel better somehow, quite often by dabbing her cold wet nose (huge as it was) on my cheek and blowing followed by a mischevious look - she seemed to smile somehow. Trouble usually ensued thereafter, a good play with her toys and I felt much better. I miss her.

I have two Basset Hounds that, quite remarkably, can turn their ears off once out in the garden, truly amazing!

Does every time I sit down in my reading chair in the den, two of our cats immediately jump in my lap and sit on the book I'm trying to read count?

I had a cat that would lay on top of the computer monitor (those big-warm-tube-types) and reach down with his paw and pick the best thumb-nail porn pics to click on.

Sorry con-pilot, you'll have to do better than that. Based on my experience with cats, it was unusual not to have a cat on me, plastered against me, or lying with a leg draped over my computer as I was trying to type. (Have never had an 'aloof' cat.)

If I recall correctly, you have a handsome orange/ginger cat (not sure what colour your other one is) but in my experience, they're the worst....or best, depending on how you look at it. My vet confirmed that. He said that in vet school, they were told that orange cats were often the most people-oriented and disproportionately likely to get into trouble that might require a vet's attention. (Had one that would even try to run along while I was riding my bike!) Still miss my last orange male that I had to give up when I went overseas for an extended period. He was such a great cat that I haven't been able to bring myself to get another.

Lomapaseo, must admit that none of my cats had that particular talent. I suspect there was some training involved.

I thought it was just natural selection since most of his picks were pussy pictures

We have a male cat who plays a mean cello.

All sorts of cat antics here. One cat has discovered that a mouse can't get out of the shower (can't climb the slippery sides of the shower bowl) so she takes live ones in there to play. Fortunately it's easy to clean up afterwards.

Two cats that can climb a bunk-bed ladder that has well-spaced rungs made from 1/2" tubular steel.

Mind you, I've managed to get one over on the cat who likes to sit between my keyboard and monitor - I now have two monitors, so if she blocks my view of one, I just drag the relevant window over to the other one. When she realises I'm no longer having she moves over, so I put the window back.

We had one cat who'd sidle up to the dog and get groomed by the dog.

We've got a Bernese Mountain Dog. Sleeps a lot. Is that unusual enough?

My 3-legged cat can go up trees like the proverbial rat up a drainpipe. Hasn't quite perfected the art of getting down yet.



She's the only cat I know with her own Facebook page too
