Yes, it's the most awesome thing. He will walk up, stand in front of me, and give me "the look" that means he's gonna jump up into my arms, or I can call him, he runs up, I pat my chest, and up he comes.
I "think" I trained him to do this. The first time he did it (which was a fluke) I gave him huge praise. Then, to reinforce it, Wade & I each kept these irresistible chicken treats in our pockets, and everytime he did it we rewarded him with a treat. He's also the type of cat that when you call his name, he comes running, even if he's off somewhere curled up sleeping. That was taught with treats also. And they say cats aren't trainable, bah!
