My cats have a very short attention span and quickly lose interest in things that are supposed to make cats go nuts. I tried da bird, the panic mouse, lazer light, I have fly toys, feathers on wands, all kinds of things. Sometimes I'm lucky. If they're in the right mood they'll give me a reaction, but a short one and then sit and do nothing. Spotty does nothing to the lazer light but sit and watch. Rosie might chase the lazer light for 15-30 seconds if I'm lucky and then do nothing. Last time I thew a crumpled piece of paper they did nothing. But I'll give it a try today to see what happens. They do like mylar toys and when I put them under a rug and play peek a boo, they pounce on those. Spotty likes the kitty charmer. He's been chasing that and carrying it in his mouth and meowing like crazy but yesterday he didn't want to play that game. I have a cast and fishing rod with a mouse at the end. That will amuse them for a few minutes, they'll run after it and then when I drag the mouse under a rug they'll try and pounce on it. It's better than nothing but after a few minutes they lose interest in that too. I pretty much depend on dragging wand toys on string under rugs to make them stalk and pounce Too often when I drag them around my home they do nothing. I want them to be more active. That would at least make me feel that they're not bored. But I guess I'm expecting too much. So I'm wondering if there are any games cat owners play with their cats that I don't know about that I could try.
