Our little kitten (on the left) is no longer a little kitten.
But they're still best buds.
My (flatmate’s) cat really likes playing with shoes
Update with more pics from today:
Redirect them. If they're just being playful, get them to play with something you want them to play with.
If they're chewing on things, it could be due to gingivitis or similar. It's good to keep chew toys around and maybe think about getting your cat's teeth cleaned.
Should have been here.
Do your cats like to play fetch?
Our older one did when she was younger but would eventually (after a few times get bored)
Our newer one will play for almost an hour at a time. I'll throw a spring, she'll retrieve it and drop it next to me and meow for me to throw it again.
All four of mine have. My (no longer) kittens are especially fond of garbage. Our orange boy will drop his toy by us and then paw at our hands. Very cute.
Cats have rather poor vision, so they rely on hearing to hunt. My cats generally won't follow the toy while it's in the air, but react as soon as it touches the ground.
I don't recall any of ours playing fetch beyond early kittenhood.
Kind of a simplification. They have poor vision in terms of the totality of what humans think of as vision, but they are better than we are at picking out and following motion. And obviously they can see in the dark better than we can.
My cat will always chase a piece of paper balled up and thrown. But doesn't bring it back to be thrown again.
Yes, supposedly they can see in near total darkness. I was saying that to segue into them determining where the toy is by listening for it to hit the ground as opposed to following it's trajectory.
Yeah IIRC they can feel the vibrations of stuff through their paws from the ground so that is badass. But my cats often follow a moving toy with their eyes and then if it stops moving it's like they can't see it. They are able to see motion really well.
Like Jeff Goldblum and the T-Rex?
I do wish I had my cat's knack for hunting. Despite a loud-as-a-mofo bell on her collar she's still sporting an amazing K/D ratio. Poor birds. At least she (mostly) eats them.
Ours is now approaching a year old so not early kittenhood anymore. Like when our older cat stopped.
They can probably still see it. They just no longer care.
Nah, they still care. Like my gray kitty used to love chasing LEGO heads around the floor, and she would get really hyped about it but when they stopped moving on the carpet she couldn't find them anymore. OTOH she could see them when they stopped moving on the white linoleum kitchen floor, she would pick them up and drop them near a human and meow at us to throw them again.
Is anyone else's cat enthralled with beans? I've had two cats who will befriend beans. Like, carry them around for days on end as if they're a comfort item or something. They aren't a fetch object though, that's very clear.
