I think Frodo is training us to play with him on demand. He has lots of toys that he likes to play with but what he likes best is if we get out his Flying Frenzy. It’s a feathery toy on a string and stick that we can wave about for him to jump after and chase. Both cats love it, but recently Frodo has made us use it more and more.
First he goes and sits by the drawer where it’s kept and looks at us.
Then he looks at us again, to encourage us to open the drawer and get his toy out.
If that doesn’t work he looks back at the drawer.
Then back at us, this time trying to hypnotise us into getting the toy.
Then he tries to open it himself.
I’m pretty sure that he’s going to figure out how to get that drawer open soon.
We usually cave before he tries to get in there himself and play for at least ten minutes, maybe a bit longer. I’m sure he’d play all day if we let him.
Frodo jumps for it and chases it and pounces on it. Sammie watches for a while then sneaks round the back of the sofa and stalks it. She waits for her chance and quick as a flash, she leaps for it. Once she gets it she hangs on to it and growls, just as if she’s caught live prey. Frodo just sits down and waits for her to relinquish it and then starts jumping for it again.
So much fun!

Sounds like he definitely has you trained 😉 But it is all in fun.

He’s very intelligent and knows he can get his way as we can’t say no to him. We have just as much fun as him when we play though, so not complaining 🙂

Luna has us trained & following her routine. She knows where her food is , her bones & biscuits are kept. She can count too. Do cats annoy you until you put on the TV/ DVD on, she is currently working her way through NCIS. These animals certainly have us all wrapped around their little paws.

Frodo would rather play than watch TV, but he does enjoy watching sports. He loves the tennis and was watching some motor racing last night with Stephen. I can’t wait for the Olympics to see if he likes that 😀

Both cats have us trained. The difference between living with cats or dogs 😉
