Cat’s don’t like to play fetch .. do they?

YES, they do!  At least all the cats I’ve had like to play fetch.  And at the oddest times like 3am and 5am.  And with the oddest things like a McDonalds’s straw.  The first time I encountered this, my cat liked to go after golf tees on linoleum but she never quite brought it all the way back.  It was a modified version of fetch.

Nope, not Menley and Mew.  They love to chase, or catch in mid air, whatever I throw and then proceed to bring it back to me.  If it’s at 3am and I have winged the toy away from me, they will bring it back and drop it on my face or chest.  They feel it’s important to get my attention and continue the game.  I know, I am the glutton for punishment as I am the one who winged the aforementioned toy off my face to begin with, which prompted the games to begin.

In the event this goes on for too long and I am starting (starting??) to get annoyed, I will take the toy and hide it under my pillow.  This works occasionally though they will start pawing at my pillow, the blankets, my hands to see where I have hidden the toys.  These are not dumb kitties!

    My cat, “Stripes” would fetch golf tees in the backyard. I would throw them as far as possible and he would return them to my hand. He would do it until he panted like a dog. Unfortunately, he died 4 months ago…I miss our games of fetch.

    Stripes sounds like an amazing cat – I would miss him too. I am so sorry to hear about his passing and hope you are taking time to enjoy the memories and love.
