Q: Is my cat unusual?

From answers I have received on here I am thinking my cat must be pretty unusual. He comes when called, responds promptly to "no." Will wait at the door until I give him permission to go out. He rarely hisses at another animal, and has never hissed at me. He would not run away. I don't let him outside except on the front steps with me and when I tell him it's time to go back in, he runs inside! He doesn't jump on the kitchen counter. He's very tolerant of my dog and very nurturing to kittens. He doesn't care what kind of litter I buy or what food I feed him, though he does have his food preferences. I just love my cat -- to me, he's purrfect!

He sounds like he would be a great friend for my Smudgie. He has very similar behaviors. Almost dog-like instead of cat-like behavior.

You are one of the lucky ones! Most of the time training like this only works if started from a very young age. My cats basically do whatever they want an I believe they find it funny when I yell at them.

he doesn't seem unusual all animals are different...your cat just seems like it is taking a dog approach on life lol...i think that your cat is perfect the way he is and unusual or not to have your cat listen to you and behave as well as he does is awesome...even if it is unusual he probably makes life a lot easier for you knowing that you can count on him to be where he is suppose to be and never have to worry about losing him...he is purrfect...
