Actually, Yes, It can. I had a mentally retarded cat. He wasnt severe, but he walked around with a head tilt and often smacked into walls.

He was very loveable, Just stupid.

I do believe my hamster I had in 6th grade was mentally challenged. He was a spaz and he'd always hiss and snarl at me, he died after a few weeks. I figure it was a heart attack from being such a spaz. My dog now he probably has ADD, can't pay attention for more then two freakin seconds.

Probably. My boyfriend has a cat who is not only one-eyed, but also thought to be mentally challenged.

Yes, although I've never had any mentally retarded animals.

Of course it can, it could have had some trauma... or birth defect just like any person could.

Yes, they can. They might not have the same mental disorders humans get, but certainly brain damage would have a retarding effect.

I have a mentally retarded cat and dog.

My friend had a mentally retarded dog. They had to put him to sleep eventually.

aren't all of them?
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/7/07 - 8:16:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it's possible. But I've never seen any.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/20/07 - 1:45:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
I had a dog that was... And then...

No, It's much too sad. :(

My teacher is convinced her cat is. He will be walking normally, then stop, jump up in the air, doing a half flip, then just continue on normally. She also said to me once, "Sorry I didn't look over your essay yet; Baker was licking it."

My aunt's dog has age-related dementia. She's, like, a million. She cannot go anywhere on her own -- if you put her somewhere, she will stay. She stares at walls. She tried to walk up a drainpipe, and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. She gets ham when she goes "piddle", and she was barking in the kitchen once. For ham. Because she went "piddle," not knowing that she was even inside.

Yeah, i had a cat that would deficate in the window sill and then lay in it...she was a really weird cat for other reasons too, but yeah...that was one of the stupider things she did...
And she knew how to use the litter box too btw, she's use it occassionally, but more often than not it was the window sill.

I'm sure it can. I've never had one, but they probably don't survive very long in the wild.
12 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 5/31/07 - 9:12:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sure they can, just as we can.

My friend had a mentally handicapped cat. I was sad and halarious at the same time.

My cat was. Sad he would meow all creepy like and he was the runt. We think the mom accidentally sat on him when he was born. Poor Mini Mr.Bigglesworth.

My dog is. She didn't get oxygen soon enough when she was born or something like that. She's really mean and growls at everything.
12 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/22/07 - 1:19:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
