I know, I know! Cats are fickle, but Gretchen always wants to play but gets bored with the toys we have. We typically play with things that can be attached to a fishing pole type toy. We have all sorts of feathers, stringy things, wiggle worms..... I am at a loss.

So, as I type this, she is quite happily playing by herself with a puff ball, making all sorts of mewing sounds and acting like a soccer player Cats!!

My SIL used a laser to "exercise" her Maine Coon cat. She loved it.

Life is tough for our beloved indoor cats! Eat, sleep, and play!

My cat absolutely loves the laser light and nudges me every night to play before bed time. Puff balls were really big until I got the laser light. She also likes a wind-up caterpillar with a face that lights up.

I have one of her cat towers in front of a big window. Outside is a bird bath, bird house, and feeder. That keeps her entertained too.

When Carys was little she was obsessed with protecting us from dryer balls. Anytime the door was opened she would appear from who knows where! She's still a character but at least the dryer balls are safe. I haven't had to replace the torn up ones for a while now.

Get bored with their ???? # of toys too, we have mice, ducks, birds, balls etc. then we have a stick with a feather & a stick with a mouse all toys but especially the sticks manage to make it all around the house at all hours of the day and night (especially night, but I have to admit, I laugh EVERY time they come into a room carrying a toy meowing, I STILL find it funny 10 months later! I never had cats who did that before these 2!)


HOWEVER, they don't seem to get bored with electric cords, my nephew's wig for Halloween, my friend's birthday bag etc. Anything that I don't want them to play with


Currently, they are both sound asleep acting/looking so peaceful and innocent, it's hard to believe their not!
