Sweetie is a cat who plays fetch. First it was with her toy mice, then she fell in love with a twistie. This is only a piece of white wire that was around a electrical cord. The minute I get home from work she brings it and drops it at my feet for me to throw for her. Its twisted into a circle so it does throw easily. My problem is that she never quits. For hours she wants me to play. Now I know its good exercise for her. She'll run or jump to catch it. But she's driving me crazy. I can't watch TV, or eat or anything but be her playmate. If I refuse to throw it she'll paw my leg, then if that doesn't work she'll jump up on the arm of the recliner. Last night she even brought it up on my lap. I know she's only a cat, but a determined one. How can I break her of this habit? I don't want to take the wire away from her since she enjoys it so much. At night she'll take it into the bathroom and bat it around. Usually it ends up under the hamper and then she'll lay and stare under the hamper and I'll have to move it so she can get it again. Has anyone else ever had a problem somewhat like this? Any advice would be appreciated.
