I was playing with Charlie the other day, similar to how I am playing with Caymus below in the video and thought, “Hey! I wonder what games other people play with their cats!”…so it became a blog post. I’m curious, so please divulge!
I recorded this video before I really talked on YouTube videos (actually this was 11 days after I put Rags to sleep) and I drop the “S” bomb a couple of times – but basically, I like to drag things over their head – like a t-shirt or a piece of paper and it always makes them want to catch the item or bat at it. Trigg is the first cat I’ve had that isn’t crazy about it, but has started to get into it more. Charlie is a total slut for it though – loves to sit in the sink and then I take the paper from the weekly grocery ad and run it over his body and he goes crazy! I think the sound of smashing that paper is intriguing for him.
This, too, is the reason why there are so many photos of Charlie on top of the washing machine on Facebook because he knows we’ll play if he’s on there with the clothes.
