Love reading about your sweet "babies". My Spencer is my lifesaver. What a difference it makes to have a pet. He sits in my lap all day when I am home. Can't imaginr your kitties playing and moving toys and shutting doors. Did you train them or re they just smart?
Keep those stories coming. Thanks for all you do
Gwen from New Jersey

When I had my cat, Siggy, I did train him to be a service cat. I trained him to bring me my cell phone when I fell. I taught Siggy this skill because I have muscular dystrophy and when I fall it is hard for me to get up. I did not have to teach Ditto that skill because he watched Siggy. Ditto took over the job when Siggy died (aged 18 years).

Siggy thought all dogs were evil. I am not sure how Ditto figured out that if they dogs were in the closet, his day was better. Ditto is the one that started stealing chew bones from the dogs and putting them in the closet. When the dogs went into the closet to get their chew bones, Ditto jumped up on the loset door to shut it. Not sure how Ditto figured this out but many times when I cam home for that year and half when the dogs stayed with me five or six days a week, I would find them in the closet. I did set up a camera so I could see how it was happening.

Some skills I have been taught to both Little One and Ditto. Ditto loves to be brushed and will do anything to get the reward of being brushed. Right now when he wants to be brushed he will tap me a couple of times on the arm and meows. Little One will come when called because he has been rewarded for that. Ditto can't hear so when I want him to come to me I give him a signal with my hands.

I have taught both of them the stay command so we play hide and seek. The first cat to find me gets a treat. Both cats enjoy the game.

Ditto is the only cat I have ever had that has a strong attachment to his blanket. I try and wash it weekly. If he sees me take his fleece throw blanket to wash, he will sit in front of the washer and dryer until his blanket comes out. He will not let me take to his bed. He will drag the fleece throw blanket to put it on his own bed. He is very stubborn about this and he is also very attached to his favorite toys. His toys are located under or by his bed. Little One tries to steal his toys and Ditto will get even with Little One in other ways. He has in the past dumped the water dish on Little One's head, laid on top of Little One's food dish while he is eating out his own food dish. The part Little One doesn't like is he lies on top of the dish for several hours. The big thing that Ditto does to get even with Little One is to lure him in the closet and then Ditto puts his feet on the door to close it.
