Sometimes when playing with my kitties they love it when I rush the toy…
Other times not so much.
And sometimes I’m just not sure from the body language which it is. Princess and I are playing with the BLUE MOUSE. I’ve been tossing it, she runs and gets it, then dashes away. I then dash and get it and toss it for her and… repeat.
But sometimes it is fun to rush it early – and sometimes she agrees. The message I am receiving right now is “STOP” (now that message could have been clouded because I reached for the camera and it is the CAMERA she wants stopped.)
I suspect my movement for the camera warned her that I was moving and that I might be about to rush to get the BLUE MOUSE before her. My unpredictability keeps her on her toes at least.
