I wish I could get a picture of this, but it's impossible, since I'm a part of his little game. Simba loves to play fetch, especially with his little crinkle balls (it's so funny that the cheapest toy I could buy, is the one's he has the most fun with). Anyway, Simba is getting more and more like a dog, every day. He isn't satisfied to just fetch the ball and bring it to me. Now, he likes to leap in the air and catch it before it lands. Sometimes he flips his body into some odd contortions in order to do so, but he's really getting good at catching that ball, mid air. Another thing that's so funny about this is that he gets in a sort of prey mode, as I'm crinkling the ball and getting ready to throw. He jumps in the chair, crouches down with his big nocturnal eyes as large as saucers, and waits. As I throw the ball, he springs in the air and grabs it in his two front paws, then runs to me with it in his mouth, just as proud as a peacock. I wish you could see this. It's so funny and so cute to watch him.
