My cat was a kitten from a feral litter I found. She was starving and constantly terrified, hiding under some machinery. I don't think she would've made it one more day if I hadn't found her.

A friend of mine trained his cat to retrieve dice that fell off the table during DnD. So if your die went wild and flew off under something, 10-15 seconds later the cat would pop up with the die in it's mouth and demand a treat.

This carried on for years and the cat would occasionally appear with a die even when you weren't playing DnD or the like.

Many many years later he moved from that house after the cat was long dead and after moving a large cupboard we found a massive stash of dice which evidently the cat had built up to bring to us when it wanted a treat/attention.

Best cat I ever had? That would've been Arnold when I was 7-10 years old, he was a lean grey tabby. It was the only cat I have known so far that liked to be under your jacket or sweater, he was so warm, cozy and adorable.
And every day I came home from school, every day he was waiting for me at the driveway, waiting for me to pick him up and pet him and let him ride on my shoulders as I walked up to the house. But one day, he was just gone, most likely taken by a predator since we lived out in the forest.
A year or two after that I just got a sudden pang of saddness and started crying, and cried for half a day because I missed him so much.

my dog was fucking Houdini, but he was also a massive idiot.
He could escape from his been which had a latch and a bungi cord to secure it.
He used at least 8 different techniques to escape, some rather clever.

He also lost a leg when he ran into a car. Yes those words are in the right order, he hit the car. I don't blame the driver, because the dog side swiped it from the side of the road.

2) Manage to find their way back after a week skinny as shit and infected with who knows what else, sometimes having to be put down

If a cat is declawed, it must stay inside - they can't defend themselves against predators outside, and they can't run away since without their front claws they can't climb trees to escape, which is their best method of outrunning faster animals like dogs.

And a dog is perfectly capable of caring for itself outside if it's not overly pampered or kept inside its whole life.

I dunno what kind of shits cats you have, but my family had nothing but black longhairs, one in Russia, the other here in Canada. The first one was an apartment cat. We took him to our summer home and he ran away. Found him a month later, filthy but well fed. He's still alive, 15 years old now even though we've moved away living in a more rural area where we lived before moving something like a cross between suburbs and a village, living outdoors mostly. The second, born here in Canada is also an outdoor cat. Got into fights a lot, ran off for a week to father a brood. Dragged him home and my parents got him fixed. Attacks any four-legged animal bigger than him. We nearly got sued when be blinded a runty german shepard that chased him into our home.

>damn thing can actually climb steepsurfaces easily.
Well, not so easily actually. It can only take very small steps and is unable to jump, which handicap it greatly on steep slopes, especially rocky ones.
Saw a video of one on a 50% slope, that wasn't exciting.

>Think of it as a high tech mule.

For a couple reasons: They're logistically a bitch to deal with. Also, they're too easy to swap out for one that's been bugged, or has a bomb in them. Finally: American troops love robots.
