Then I made a mistake. I thought, well if she’s gonna play, I’ll play with her! And I got out the kitty teaser. Leo had been snoozing on the back of the couch, but as soon as the teaser came out he got alert. I wiggled it at Star and she played with it for a little bit. Then she noticed that Leo had jumped down, and even though he wasn’t that closer to her, she grumbled and stopped playing so she could keep an eye on him. I even had good enough aim to let it land over her back and head where I could slowly drag it, but nothing. She was done.
Since she was sick, she hasn’t been playing a lot, and sometimes I think she’s feeling her age. So when I saw that she wanted to play, I got the idea that maybe we should take up a toy or two for her to play with upstairs where, for the most part, she is comfortable. I thought we should take the wicker ring with feathers up before Leo chewed all the feathers off it. It’s one of the few feather toys that still has most of it’s feathers! Greg grabbed her butterfly, her favorite toy. Ah ha! That was a great idea. That’ll keep it safe from the toy destroyer as well as let her have her fav.
When she saw her butterfly on the bed, you’d have thought it was Christmas, Easter, and her birthday all rolled together! She grabbed it, rolled over and started rubbing it on her face. Pure bliss. She licked it sopping wet and accepted all kinds of ear rubs and scritches. Totally blissed out. But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself.
Leo: I sense a toy being played with somewhere...
