Who says pet tricks are only for dogs? For years, that's been the belief here in the United States. But in Russia, they're proving that difficult stunts aren't species specific. Pet Pulse's Joey Wahler has the story you've gotta see to believe.

Cats can learn tricks--if and when THEY want to.

Sure cats can learn tricks. They just aren't show offs who need to prove what they can do. They know and that's all that matters <g>

Cats are a LOT smarter than people give them credit for. Just being able to be trained doesn't necessarily mean you're smart either.

This doesn't surprise me. What does it that most people think cats can't be trained or can't do tricks.

I taught my first cat to sit, give paw and lay down. It can be done!

All types of animals can be trained, why would you think that you can't train cats?

My older cats have recently developed a love for toys. I think old cats can always learn new tricks. Animals are amazing creatures.

Amazing story. I was surprised that a cat could cooperate that well and learn anything. Then again I am a dog lover and know that they can learn tricks.

This is cute to see these cats doing this, however I hope that they aren't living their lives in cages going from city to city.

Cute cats. Wish mine would do something besides sleep and eat. Then I could put them on tour and be rich (right!). Seriously, I think cats can be trained. They are just more independent creatures. Dogs are needy and have the desire to please. Cats could care less.

Wow. Watching that cat spin that ball while lying on his back was great!

I can get my rabbit to do tricks....as long as I have food. What I noticed though is that voice commands don't mean much to a rabbit (at least mine). It is the hands she watches for direction. Oh yes and then there is that darn problem with "HEY LOOK, a SQUIRREL" that gets in the way.

Seriously, these performers show that animals are smarter than we give them credit for, and it takes the right incentive and the right techniques and bonds to make them want to "work".

Great video.

How cool - I would love to see this show! I particularly liked the cat walking the tightrope. Cats are natural performers for circus acts because they are so graceful. It's neat that these people are able to change the perception of cats being untrainable.

I would rather see cats perform than dogs. I think cats are much smarter and certainly more inependent.

I wish my cat would listen to me. Even a squirt gun doesn't work...she just thinks it some crazy game and runs all over the house and repeats whatever she got in trouble for!!!

I don't like seeing animals used like this. Cats are smart and this is demeaning to them. I can't imagine a cat would want to be swung around like that!

Cats are smart. They are just selective about what they will do.
