I wonder how many days you have to not feed a cat to focus its concentration on treats that much?

Now what? Do you know how many other cats are interested enough to do that for a competition? Zero. Now, that cat will sue the dog agility group just so he can compete. What a can of worms this will be and another distraction from Obama’s scandals\sarc

remarkable. I did not think a cat could be trained like that.

If you use the right treats the cat need not be hungry.

Less than one. Food is the most important thing in the world to cats. Starving them is not necessary for this performance.

I would bet either one of my cats could learn to do that, but I have no large training arena for training them. My Maine Coon is particularly athletic. Never saw such effortless leaps as Bijou going from the floor to the windowsill or skipping many steps on her condo to get to a shelf. Little Kefira could do that also, but she is scared of strangers and would choke up. It’s a shame. I’ve watched cat agility at cat shows and it’s amazing to see.

I forgot to mention that treats rank ahead of food in their priorities. Even if they have just eaten regular food, they will perform for treats. They don’t have to be hungry.

That is incredible. Both the kitty and the owner are impressive.

A little competition here. I know dogs who won’t perform as well as this cat.

My parents had a cat who would have been great at that obstacle course if you could just convince him that you did not want him to do it. He was a pig headed cat who confused "NO!" with "I double dog dare you".

This cat obviously has a healthy dose of COVK feline dna.

It has to be trick photography because no cat would work that hard.

Good grief! Is that some kind of Mastiff/Pit Bull cross? This video gives new meaning to the phrase “My dog was bouncing off the walls.”

Nope. Just a plain old American Staffordshire Terrier. The dog’s name is TreT, and there are a pile of YouTube videos of him...just one amazingly athletic and agile pup.

LOL..There's video of that too. It's obvious his owner is quite (justifiably) proud of him...

Good way to tire a kitteh out for the day! I wonder what treat she was giving to get her to do all that?

The cat probably thinks it’s trained the human.

Mine recognize their names, and will come if they think food might be involved. Deimos can also tell when he’s in trouble, and will flee the scene of his latest crime. (Usually knocking something over.)

I never thought I’d see a cat doing silly dog tricks for treats. Wait till it finds out it was video’d and put on the internet, it’s going to be the laughing stock of all of catdom.........LOL!

Probably catnip laced with amphetamines......

Saw a female Staffie a little bit like TreT at the dog park yesterday, she was a real fetch machine. But not as good as the tiny pug/Pomeranian/Chihuahua cross that was running around. This dog was smaller than either of my cats (Maine Coons) and was the fastest dog at the park by a mile. Somebody would throw a ball and that little rat dog would FLY to it with legs a total blur, outrunning the Staffie, then catch it on the bounce at a dead run, bring it back, drop it about 5 feet from the thrower’s feet and let it roll to them while the dog sat down, stared at the thrower, and cocked one paw up in the air ready for the next throw.
