Is it rare for a cat to play fetch?

When should you start teaching fetch?
Many dogs will never instinctually retrieve, but just about any breed of dog can be taught how to play fetch. You can start training your non-retriever puppy to bring items to you as soon as you begin the rest of your play-based training, around eight weeks old.
How do I know if my cat is intelligent?
If your cat is very intelligent, they will look at the food and then at you. They will likely continue looking back and forth at you and the container, waiting for you to serve them the food. Your cat’s intelligence might be a little lower if they ignore the container of food.
What does it mean when my cat brings me a toy?
Cats are territorial animals by their nature, so the fact that they want to share with you should be taken as a compliment. They could be presenting it to you as a sign of affection for giving them the toy in the first place, asking you to look after it, or even letting you know that it needs to be repaired.
