Meet the barking mad cat who thinks he's a dog.
Teddi, a six-year-old Siberian tom, is able to jump through hoops, perform various greetings and weave in and out of poles just like a trained hound.
Owner Barbara Connor, 55, has taught him how to do 20 tricks, all more traditionally associated with canines.
Her cat's antics have been viewed by thousands of people from around the globe on the moggy's dedicated Youtube channel called 'Teddie's Tricks'.
She said: 'How long it takes to teach Teddi new tricks depends on what type of skill it is. Giving the high five or shaking hands, he had them within a couple of days.
'But some of them like where he goes round and round in a circle, that took him four months to do it without tempting him with a treat.
'He's currently practising his piano skills for a new music video. He's obviously banging about on the keyboard but he looks the part.'

My cat on a rare occasion will chew a stick nearby the dog, when the dog is also chewing one. It seems like a gesture to join in/ be accepted. He's done it with different dogs, not that the dogs notice, but I think it shows a novel thought process outside of normal behavior.
Another animal I just recently learned can do agility training like dogs are rabbits... who would have thought.
