Q&A: Have you ever trained a cat to fetch? How do you do it?

Question by pollux: Have you trained a cat to fetch? How do you do it?
I have three cats and they all love to chase things like balls and toy mice when I throw them, but they never bring them back to me so I can throw them again. My nextdoor neighbor has two and they love to play fetch. They always bring the ball back. In fact when I walk into their house, the dogs often come up to me with a tennis ball in their mouth wanting me to play fetch with them. Of course, they don't call them “retrievers” for nothing. How can I get my cats to do this? Is it hopeless?
Wow! These are all great (and encouraging) answers. Thanks. I'll leave this open a while longer to see what else I get.
