Short hairs make good pets

I've had my Short hair since he was a kitten. Over the years his personality is just like mine. We are both mellow, calm and laid back. We both enjoy each others company and cuddles. He's been good with other cats but for some reason does not like our dog Scramp. He only tolerates him. But as soon as he hears one of our other cats getting chased by him he races in to defend his brothers. It'd be cute and amazing if Scramp was being serious. He's a very clean cat. And even when I do have to give him a bath which is rare, he doesn't fight. He will squall as if you're killing him but will sit there and take it. He calms down alot if your in there with him or if he can sit on your lap. The claws never come out. I think he is really intelligent. I know alot of animals are smarter than what humans give them credit for. But Simba can comprehend how things work such as drawers and doors by this I mean he knows how to open and close them and lock and unlock them. He knows how to use a actual toilet for a bathroom. And is clever and creative when we teach him tricks. I guess you could say he acts more like a dog than a cat. Simba seems lazy but it's really Cuz he's laid back. If you show signs of being playful he joins in quickly. And of you don't sometimes he likes to start it. He loves playing tag and hide and seek and is very good at them. Peekaboo is his all time favorite.This cat has been part of my family for almost 8 years and is part of my family.
