One of the biggest flexes of pet owners is when their pets perch on their shoulders. As we have seen in the pop culture references, perching on the owner’s shoulders represents a bond of a different level.
Birds of course perch on shoulders because that’s how they usually stand. But other animals do not climb up to the shoulders naturally, but you can make it comfortable and train your pet to climb and sit on your shoulders. Cats of course do this when they are kittens, the reason for this is that they like high places and they also like to have the scent of their owners as much as possible. Therefore, the shoulder is the best place for them to be. But with time as they grow up, they do not get on your shoulder as much as they did before. This behavior might be caused by their size, which is a bit difficult to balance and rest, also the need to walk around and explore the world.
even though the other species such as dogs and pigs are not seen on shoulders, any pet could be trained to get on and be on shoulders. It takes a bit of practice and a bit of bribing them with treats!
One way or the other, this act of cuteness is considered one of the closest phenomenon done by an animal to show love and closeness to its owners. So, if you want to get your pet on your shoulder, (who should be in the appropriate size) you better get into training right away!
