Terry the cat plays fetch like a dog – (Tanner Lyon)

The established behaviour of cats and dogs suggests that, while dogs play games such as fetch, cats are rather more independent in their leisure time.

And while that might be the case for most felines, it’s not the case for Terry.

“We didn’t try to teach her fetch,” said Tanner. “Rather, we noticed that she would bat around her mouse, then bring it to either Tracy or myself, drop it next to us and make eye contact expectantly.

“Tracy, was the one who discovered that she wanted to play with us.”

Terry was adopted by the pair along with another cat they named Denis Villeneuve, after another writer and director. While the latter is more cat-like, the former certainly sounds more canine in her approach.

That’s one versatile cat.
