Fetching.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Buttons has recently started bringing back balls I throw for him and putting them in my lap. Any other cats do this?

That's very sweet. Georgia will chase what I throw and then come back to me, but she hasn't yet figured out that she needs to bring the toy along with her!

However, when I go into the bathroom in the morning to take a shower, she immediately wakes up from her nap and brings a toy over. Then we hit it back and forth for a while under the door.

Yes, my older cat, Lady, has been fetching balls, wads of paper, and milk rings for years. Now our two new adopted kittens, Deacon and Douglas are also fetching and bringing their toys back to us to throw. They race each other to see who gets to it first!!

I had a cat that liked to fetch wadded up paper balls.
I would toss them from a far into a mini trash can...he was the rebound KING!

I have a cat, Naomi, who is 3 years old and LOVES to catch little wadded up papers. She just has to hear the crinkle of it and she's in the room, eyes bright and dilated, little fanny swaying back and forth. I plan on making the wads a tad bit bigger though. About a week or so ago, I tossed one up in the air for her as usual, and she caught it with her mouth. I heard a fast gag, and a cough and saw that little "spitball" fly from her mouth. Fun, but be careful and always watch!

Radar plays fetch with toy fur mice - brings them back and drops them at my feet for me to throw again. If I don't throw it for him immediately he gets my attention by grabbing at my leg

Yep, most of my rexes played fetch - one (Tom E Hawk) would not stop till YOU put the ball away.

Oci's are supposed to be good fetchers (like a dog) but Charlie's still young and I haven't taught him the fetch game yet.

Most if not all our Ragdolls fetch, and most of the babies do once they get to their new homes. Our kitties like scrunched up paper, micey men, chenille balls, really anything that moves. It is a fun game, but our arms tire faster than the kitties....LOL

Persil fetches stuffed mice after chasing them around, so you can throw them again. So far her record for playing this game is 45 minutes!

Comere used to play Fetch. I'd rip a piece of paper and that was his cue... he'd be sitting there waiting for me to crumple it up and throw it, and he ALWAYS brought it back.

I WISH Cosmo would do it... Cosmo LOVES to play, but he hasn't quite figured out that he can bring the paper back to me LOL. In so many other ways Cosmo is smarter than Comere was, but I think he has a fetch disability.

I used to say 3 out of 4 of mine fetch, but recently Levi has begun fetching. It only took him 3 years to catch on, but he finally got it. So now all of mine fetch. When Isaac was a kitten it was the only form of attention he wanted.

This is really neat that so many have cats that fetch. Who needs a dog anyway...LOL. I am very much joking, I wouldn't know what to do with our 4 legged sheepdog.
I wouldn't have guessed so many of us have fetching kitties. I have some that could do fetch all day long, but then others that like to play 3 or 4 times in a row, and then they say", this micey man is mine, all mine" and go lay on it. I guess I would say they all have their quirks though.
The one who doesn't play fetch, plays with the furry micey men on her own, and then places them in the water bowl, but it never fails to find this wet, nasty feeling, furry micey man on a bottom of a bare foot as we get up in the middle of the night. I mumble some explicitives at the wet mouse that just scared me, and then have to think, ode to being owned by cats. Couldn't live without them.

my siamese mix, Viola loves to play fetch-I swear sometimes she is part dog!

Bijou fetches whatever we throw and drops it at our feet to throw for him again. Mika doesn't fetch - she will come to the kitchen and stand up on my legs and make her unique and sweet little "huffing" sound (she has no voice), run into the living room and sit by the kitty toy wand to let me know she wants to play. If we follow her in she stands and tries to talk to us. I call her "Nanny's Princess". I love her to bits.

Radar's record is 9 hours, which was more fun for him than it was for my arm I swear that cat never sleeps!
