Default Little Helper

I am uncertian how common this is so I just had to ask. As we were moving furniture around the Family room today Zara naturally had to not only get under foot but to try to pitch in. She is now 11 weeks old. She was picking up bits of plastic, socks, and paper off the floor she would find, and brought it to me, handing it over and wagging her tail, occasionally with a little yip. She never tried to chew on the items or play with them she picked them up with the intention of bringing them to me.

Always we praised her for lending a hand and helping out. When it came time to start putting togather the Cat Tower that we got for our Kitten Miko. I felt this paw on my leg and looked down to find Zara had climbed into the box and found the wrench that was included for assembly, made her way out of the box, and brought me the wrench, proudly holding it in her jaw and wagging her tail !

As soon as she handed over the wrench she went and got one of her toys, and brought it over, waiting patiently till we had finished then made her way up the ramp on the tower depositing her toy inside the hiding hole / sleeping box.

We are kinda speachless... She really seemed to want to help out.

She is very smart, and a sweetheart, you are lucky. Ike would have found all that stuff and ran with it, I have been trying to teach him to bring his ball back and he will have nothing to do with it. He has trained me to go get. YOur little girl must be easy to train.

Aww you reward her for this behavior so she keeps at it, she must really like the
reaction she gets from you. What a good girl. Often times people underestimate
how intelligent Chis are, one of the smartest breeds imo. I personally find such
pleasure in training my girls because they learn so quickly and are so eager to
please...it's a nice refreshment from my Basenji boys who are only interested in
learning if there is something in it for them, lol.

That's so sweet, such a good girl!
Mine would have ate all the plastic, socks and paper so the answering is no they never do that, they don't even get "fetch" yet lol, they would run after it and then bring it to their bed (like a home base) and then they look at me
