Yes it does make sense and Thank you.
To be honest though Luke has never been an active cat. His favorite past time is finding a better hiding place to take a nap. I have always been concerned about him getting overweight because of his inactivity but the vet always says that he is a beautiful healthy cat. (With a slight case of arthritis partially from an injury and partially from having to be declawed for medical reasons but it only acts up when he gets cold so he does not have us give him anything for it. He has had the arthritus for years.)
Actually since we have acquired Leia (12 weeks old) Luke has been more active than I have seen him since he was a baby. He always wanted petting and cuddling and still does but he was never really interested in playing. Not like other cats I have been around anyways. I always assumed it was because he was wild (ferel?) when we got him and he did not get the concept. He was always a serious cat. We think he was 3 to 4 weeks old when we got him but playing was not interesting to him. Not if it involved much physical movement anyways. example: He will chase a string as long as it does not get out of his reach so you just move it back and forth in front of him and he will move a paw to get it but gets bored with the game very quickly. If anything his activity has increased a bit in the past couple of weeks. He loves playing with Leia but his playing is still quite controlled. He sits in one spot and plays bat the gopher at her. They are so cute together. I guess I just have a very lazy happy cat. (garfield jr haha)
Luke does have a teddy bear but you don't want to know what he does with it at night. Sometimes when the moon is full we have to hide it or we can't get any sleep.
I will talk to the vet at his next visit that is coming up to see if she thinks he is ready for sr food.
