Those of you with pets, do you have one toy that your critter is ABSOLUTELY obsessed with?
My two year old cat is fanatical about ‘Da Bird’ so much so that I need to keep it locked in my laundry room.
Anytime I walk by the laundry room he assumes it’s an imminent invitation to play.
Today was no different
Opening the door
Dragging out with pride
Attached to a string and slender rod
Easily five times his length
I pause my chores
Tail kept high
he leaps, swerves, and contorts his body
to catch that swooping Bird
he refuses to release his prey
I attempt to pry Da Bird from his mouth
In response he growls
I seize the moment to load the laundry machine
Task completed I turn my back
unable to reanimate game.
Da Bird is dead!
He proceeds to hassle his older brofur
staring at me with discontent
I remind him that this is all his doing
but a cat obsessed with his toy
Can’t be cajoled
Until I make a trip to the pet store
And buy another Da Bird
And it starts
