Here was a cat that took the cake, sometimes literally. Yes, he was male and he knew it, but not like any male tabby that I ever knew. He would bark to be let out and play fetch and drink from the ever refilling water bowl (That's the toilet son). It was almost as if he did not know he was a cat. He certainly did not act like one. He came when called and waited for the food to be put down. he learned it all from watching the dogs I think.
He acted like a dog so much that even the dogs thought he was one of them. He played with them, snuggled with them, and even slept in the crate at night with them. He never did hiss or claw at them, it's like he was a puppy and they accepted him as part of the pack in the house. He ate when they did both in the morning and night, though he knew that he had cat food in the bowl any time he wanted it. He hunted on his own, but he still waited to get fed like the dogs did, eating with his adopted pack of hounds. Tabby’s are really social, trainable, lovable cats though you have to start early.. I definitely recommend this breed and would love to own another.
