dh13:My cat screams at me repeatedly.
tmccord21: dh13:My cat screams at me repeatedly.
Mine too. They should start a kitty band.
My cat brushes his own teeth. Well, I do have to paste and hold the toothbrush since he doesn't have thumbs, but he does the rest - presents himself on the bathroom counter nightly to have them brushed, then puts the pasted brush to his back teeth and chews on it, switching sides too.
He also tolerates a full oral exam without restraint or struggle, but I suspect only petdoc or another vet would appreciate just how unusual that is in a cat!
I can't get my cats to do anything; they both yell at me...oh, I can clip their nails! Is that a trick? They both come when called also.
Both of my dogs can sit, lay down and come. My heeler mix, Pepper, can high five, shake, roll over, retrieve and drop her ball, and stay. The poodle, Snuggle, can dance...when the moment strikes her.
Pepper went to obedience school. She has her dog-torate.
ETA spelling, I'm having issues today.
CousinVicki:sit, paw, lie down. nbsp;the end. lol
My animal does this really cool thing where it doesn't exist.

That is a really good trick! I have to trap Milo between my legs for his nightly teeth brushing.
Milo knows come, sit, spin in both directions, and up. Milo is a cat BTW.
Both of the dogs know come, sit, stay, shake, lay down.
Truth be told, my cat was easier to train than both of my dogs.

The sogs can do all the basics, plus sit pretty (he sits on his butt and lifts his paws up at us), shake, army crawl, speak, plays dead.
One of our cats will come when she's called, the other one will play fetch.

My dog can sit, stay, come, lay down, and high five. She graduated puppy class at Petsmart, we're so proud.
She can also dig a hole several inches deep in about 5 seconds. She ignores all people food and doesn't show any interest in it even within easy reach. She can jump over the back of the couch without any kind of running start, but she thinks the baby gate is an impenetrable barrier. She is terrified of her food bowls if they aren't in her holder. And she thinks going to the vet is the best thing ever, even after surgery, shots, blood draws, and sterile bladder samples being taken. She's also an excellent prancer.
My cat will dig in the hamper to find a dirty sock or grab one of her toys and carry it downstairs to my office as a present.
awwwpuddin:My cats takes larger than human sized turds that singe your nose hairs.
My dog bites me when I pet him.
Your cat may have megacolon or some other GI issue. Has he been examined by a veterinarian?
Biting does not sound like a very good trick for a dog (or any animal for that matter).
Noodle's only useful tricks are rolling a ball to you with his nose when you gesture your head upward and walk over and give kisses on command.
His less amusing talents are reaching food or what he considers food at any cost including eating through my nylon suitcase and a ziploc bag to get to my prenatal vitamins, eat through a foil packet of coffee to eat that, and eating through a cardboard container to get to bread crumbs to eat. You would think I don't feed him!
taylormarie923:... My pit sits when I say "sh!t".
This is my favorite one so far!
No furry animals here, I'm allergic but I LOVE dogs so much! I'll find a way to get one someday.
