He asks for play by dragging his favorite interactive toy across the house and drops it at my feet, looks up at me and makes his funny Maine Coon sounds. "Make it wiggle pleaaaassseese!!!" My heart melts, and of course I wiggle it for him! I so love seeing him drag his toys around - too cute!! Sometimes the other cats will chase the other end as he carries it!
My cats have taught me many things about life. I realized recently that like Nahum, I too have a significant need for play. I can happily spend the day playing with the cats. String toy, birdie toy, feather toy, building forts, chase... I also like playing with humans; goofy pranks, being silly and the like. It's really about not taking life to serious.
Here are a few examples of my style of play from years ago:
I bought this classic van from a friend for a dollar. He had given the van a custom paint job and had proposed to his wife by popping the question on the side of the van for all to see. She painted the response. As I drove this thing around, I got lots of bizarre looks! These van colors remind me of the color-crazed humans over at the Katnip Lounge - this would be a color scheme they might choose!
