The wildcats have to be smarter than domestic cats in order to survive and this ability it passed down to the hybrids which also include the Chausie and Savannah, for example. Here is a young spotted Bengal cat playing fetch with extreme discipline and proficiency. He is a frisky boy:
Q: you have a nice house and a cute kitty! did you have to train it or does it just do that by itself? soo cuteeee~!But it doesn't just have to be Mr Bling who is the cat playing fetch. Here is a Siberian cat doing it just as well. Siberians look like Maine Coons and Norwegian Forest cats (NFCs) and may come from the same ancestors. He clearly loves this game as he is purring. And he plays with great vigor and enthusiasm:
I didn't have to teach him..I think Bengals just naturally like to fetch..go figure.
They used to be quite expensive but now I think you can get one for like $200? Maybe even a free one at an animal shelter but I dont think many people would give one up..they're lots of fun :)
Who said cats can't be trained and be useful (not all Bengals need training - see comment above)? Siberians like NFCs are particularly good jumpers. And this shows in the video. Despite being a large cat and a tad overweight (no criticism intended) she or he jumps bl**dy well. Siberians are meant to be hypoallergenic. This is not true as there are no hypoallergenic cats unless we believe the Allerca cat story. See Fel D1 too.
