Train Cats To Sit Like Humans

They'd basically become another animal.

You have to see the picture and video to get what I mean.

That's not a cat. It's a gremlin or something. And it's deeply disturbing.

So yea, train them to sit like humans. Not sure how we'd do it but pretty sure it'd be possible. Start when they're kittens by giving them a chair that dispenses treats when they sit in it properly or something.

When you're really succeeded in making another breed is when they teach their kittens to sit that way.

Why? Dunno. Good question.

Like so https://www.snopes....tting-like-a-human/
If it sits like that, it ain't no cat. (Hey, that rhymes!) [doctorremulac3, Feb 01 2023]

       So are you going to selectively breed them so their 'knees' on their back legs bend the other way first or just use surgery on each cat to change that then? because that's going to be a problem.
Skewed, Feb 01 2023

       No, I was thinking of training them to sit like humans.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       //No, I was thinking of training them to sit like humans//   

       Yes I did get that, my point is that that is physically impossible for them to do because of the way their 'knees' bend, the hips are the right way around for how we sit in chairs but their knees go the other way to ours .. ergo it's simply not physically possible for them to 'sit like a human' .. their legs will be stuck out in front in a manner that's distinctly not like a sitting human.
Skewed, Feb 02 2023

       Might wanna tell that to the cat in the video.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       Sure, now put it in a cat sized chair and see where its legs go, it can't bend them down from the knees to sit in a chair with their feet on the floor in the manner that you or I would because they don't bend that way .. I can only assume you don't have a cat as you seem not to know that, but if you do have one take a look at it now, you'll see that I'm right.
Skewed, Feb 02 2023

       Again, look at the video. The idea is to teach cats to do that.   

       //Sure, now put it in a cat sized chair and see where it's legs go//   

       No apostrophe needed in its.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       Again, look at the physical structure of a cats back legs, it's physically impossible, unless you break their legs first of course.
Skewed, Feb 02 2023

       Again, look at the video. The idea is to train cats to do that.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       [Skewed]; you're confusing the "knee" with the "ankle". See linky.

       Thank you neut.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       Read "humans" as humus. Might be better received.

       //Read "humans" as humus//   

       Double check BEFORE switching on blender
pocmloc, Feb 02 2023


       Did I misspell "humus" as "humans"?   

       Boy is my face red.
doctorremulac3, Feb 02 2023

       Of course not. I hadn't adjusted to the glasses that allow me to read
