Motion Monday: Cat Agility Around the World

Meow my furiends,

Today on Motion Monday I would like to show you several short videos on other kitties showing off their agility skills ranging from beginner to more advanced. You might think an agility course needs a large outdoor area, but as in the first video, it can be setup indoors, on a table! Do you think you need to start out as a kitten to learn? The second video shows a formerly feral cat who started at seven years old! From cute cat tricks to a cat that can skateboard, we cats are very athletic. You don’t have to learn agility to compete either. You can learn for just fur fun and fur your human’s enjoyment.

My humans had a very busy week so we didn’t get the exercise room setup for me like we planned, so this post is “Plan B”. This week we’ll be assembling the PVC tubes and fittings my humans purchased to show your humans next week how easy (theoretically) it will be to put together the weave poles and a jump. Mom made a teeter totter out of a wedge shaped log and the leaf out of the dining room table…how creative.

This is Tripper, a formerly feral tabby, who was trained to do an agility course starting when he was about 7 years old….

 

A pawsome young lady in the Czech Republic who trained a few dogs and cats and has several video of them on Youtube. This is her kitty Suki…

 

An amazing young man from Toronto Canada named Daniel King who has trained his cats Cashmere and Puffy. Daniel sent in a audition video to Battle Cats and I tried to find out if he qualified, but I guess we’ll just have to find out like everyone else and watch the show. Daniel has also made several clicker, target and agility training videos on Youtube….

 

Another amazing trainer in Australia is Robert Dollwet who trains dogs, but is also a “cat man too”! Robert has done a wonderful job with his kitty Didga, and his Youtube videos are very entertaining. Check out his tutorials for Shake Paw, Stay, and several other tricks as well as clicker and target training….

    • Oh dear Shoko, I was hoping you’d feel inspired, not shamed. I have a long ways to go too. Like Catmantoo suggests, your mom can use a word like “yes”. As for agility, you can use a feather lure, or even a stuffed mousie on a string…whatever works for you! 🙂

  1. These cats are all amazing. Mom says that you may be able to teach cats tricks but she’s too old to learn new things. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
