Melbourne, June 27 : Fly, the white cat, is not an ordinary feline that just follows direction - he follows a whole series of them - thanks to his training which is better that a canine's.
And he's so good at his work that his owner is using him to prove stubborn cats are really just misunderstood.
From the time Ros Taber adopted Fly as an abandoned eight-week-old kitten in February, she has trained him on an agility course designed for dogs.
Fly follows the course route, balancing on beams and running through tunnels as instructed.
But Taber does concede that while Fly condescends to do dog tricks, he does them at his own particular cat pace.
"He is not border collie-fast, he plods around quite slowly," Courier Mail quoted her, as saying.
Twice a week Fly goes to work with Taber, the manager of RSPCA Queensland's animal training and behaviour centre in Fairfield, South Brisbane.
"While I'm training my dog he sits at the edge. He gets meowing and gets a bit impatient waiting for his turn," Taber said.
"Cats are particularly misunderstood," she added.
