Do you play with your cats much?I spend alot of time talking to my cats and stroking them but I find actually playing with them hard work sometimes.I feel guilty about this as I can tell when they are in the mood for games but often I just don't have the time or inclination to get the string out or throw their fabric mice around!I feel like I am being a mean owner! They are allowed outside 24/7 though so I am hoping they get to have their fun chasing butterflies etc Do you think if I played with them more we would develop a deeper bond or is talking to them and stroking enough?
Our cats' absolute favourite toy is the plastic inside of a Kinder Egg. We only need to throw it once or twice as its shape means it's unpredictable when they batter it so they can't be sure where it's going to go. Plus you get the bonus of eating the chocolate.
I'm the same dotty. And I feel so guilty if, having given them a good run around one day, they look at me expectantly the next (uncannily normally at exactly the same time of day!). Good thing is they don't seem to bear a grudge if I haven't played with them for a while!
I am the same and it is rare nowadays for us to play with the cats. Ds does from time to time as they behave like dogs and fetch a mouse or ball if you throw it and then bring it back to you to have it thrown again.
