Russ says: Shii-chan is more like a dog than a cat. When he was a kitten he would cry in the house if we took the dogs for a walk without him, so we got him his own leash and took him for walks with the dogs. You can do almost anything with him -- dress him up, carry him around, etc. -- and he does not mind. In the summer we let him out in the backyard with the dogs. My daughter can call him and he comes running back in. Unlike the dogs, we can't keep him off the counters and out of the food. No amount of training seems to help and we have tried just about everything. He does not like most of the things we do to correct him, but he always comes back for more as soon as we turn our backs. Baggage handlers dropped him in his kennel while loading him onto the plane when we brought him home. Perhaps there was some permanent brain damage that prevents learning. Plus there is that odd chirping sound he makes when he sees birds outside. Who knows?

Absolutely gorgeous boy! All cats make chirping noises when watching birds... and they don't much like learning to obey. Nothing wrong with his brain!
