While it's normal to see a dog obeying its owner's commands to "sit" or "shake," it's far less common to observe a cat doing the same. What makes cats more difficult to train than dogs?
For starters, dogs are group animals that look to their owners for leadership, and they form attachments to their "pack" instead of their territory. Because dogs learn by observing their pack, it follows that they respond readily to reward-based training. Cats, on the other hand, don't develop such a strong pack structure where leadership is important; instead, they become attached to their territory. Cats don't look for a leader to follow, so teaching them to obey commands can be a more trying process.
Still, the vidoes below prove that cats can learn quite a few tricks when given proper motivation.
Anything dogs can do...

Another cat bites the dust
This kitten proves that dogs aren't the only ones that enjoy a game of fetch. In fact, this feline gets so impatient while waiting to chase the ball that she cries until her owner throws it.
If the feline fits...
This fluffy feline seems to be mostly fur. How else could he fit his entire body inside this bowl?
