    We call our boy cat “cat dog”, since he has dog traits….lol

    Yeah, my cat plays fetch, comes when I whistle, and is as needy as a dog.  He’s turning 13 this year and he’s still just as fun as he was as a kitten (but now he snores).  He’s the best cat I’ve ever had, so I know what you mean about the next cat you get.

    We have a male cat Tucker who has 3 toys that are “his”.  You don’t touch them, look at them or even come near them.  They are a yellow banana, a pink pillow and a yellow duck.  All of them stuffed and fairly small.  He’ll bat them around and chase them around the house.  More often they get knocked under the stove or couch and he’ll just lay there trying to reach them with his paws, but because we have hard wood and tile floors upstairs more often he just moves them further out of reach.  I’ll then grab a swiffer duster because it extends and when he sees that thing he gets so excited like “YES!!! They’re gonna get my toys for me!”  He’ll rub up against the duster, he’ll rub up against me, he’ll jump on me as I’m trying to reach his toy.  It’s like he’s more excited knowing I’m trying to help him than actually getting to play with his toys again.  What’s funny though is I’ll be sitting on the couch and he’ll bring me his toy and drop it at my feet or on my lap.  I’ll throw it across the room, he’ll chase it, bat it around, then bring it back to me.

    He also greets you at the door.  I never gave it much thought when I’d come home and he’d be at the door until one day I was home sick from work and my FI came home.  Tucker was in his cat condo sleeping when all of a sudden he lifts his head up, kind of gives this short “meow” like “HUH?”, jumps down off the condo and runs to the door.  I just sat there watching, pretty amused at what he was doing.  When my FI walked through the door Tucker starts meowing and “jumping” on my FI, putting his front paws on his legs and meowing until FI would pet him. 

    We also have a female cat Sookie, who couldn’t care less about playing fetch or greeting you at the door.  But she likes to beg for food lol.

    @LittleCricket:  I had a cat that was like a dog (maine coon mix)!  Best cat ever and I had him for 18 years.  He played fetch, came when he was called, liked belly rubs and would beg.  I definitely miss that cat.

    I haven’t really noticed our cat doing that, other than fetching a milk carten ring when thrown.  But our dog does do a lot of cat things, such as licking her paw and cleaning her face.

    My cat is the same way. She doesn’t fetch as much anymore, but she definitely did when she was a kitten. She’s almost always at the door when I come in and if she’s not, I just have to call her name and she comes running. My old cat used to play tag with our dog all the time, they were best buddies. They were both shelter cats too, if that makes a difference.

    @LittleCricket:  It might be a gender thing.   I had a cat when I was 12 named Tiger who was male.  He was an outdoor cat and he would come when I whistled.  That cat would be no where in sight and I’d get home from school and whistle and here he’d come running down the street to meet me.

    My boy cat does tricks, comes when called, and is very clever. He’s great.

    My cat is a Siamese and they are known to be very sociable, talkative cats. Mine comes running when you call him and has the best most dog-like personality ever. I shudder to think of the day he passes on. He’s 15 years old and still as spry as ever so hopefully he will live a long life!

    One of my cats is very dog like. She sometimes plays fetch. She does a lot of things on command, like hug. People are often shocked when she gives hugs lol
