I have just been alerted by a mewing from the kitchen, so mindful of the potential for serious damage. I got up and trotted through.
My little black kitten/cat (1 year old) was sitting there looking at the floor and then up at me, cocking his head to one-side and letting out a succession of plaintive miaows.
I knew that it wasn't lack of food and he'd just had his tummy tickled, so it wasn't that either.
Then I clicked:- The wettest weather.
My kitchen is on the south side of the flat and when the sun shines, a fair part of the room is in shadow but.....
If I stand in the right place, the face of my watch reflects the sun onto the floor. This is the latest game. He will chase that little light back and fourth till he's exhausted. I've actually had him sweating.
How do you ex[plain to a kitten/cat that it doesn't work without the sun. I'm getting all sorts of recriminating looks as though it's all my fault that he can's play "Hunt the Sprite"!
I've got a Cocker Spaniel that's used to a walk every morning between 9&10. All I've had all day from her so far is indignant stares with the whites of the eyes... Oh well, the wellies & dog coat will have to be broken out soon!
Then there is my daughters cats She has two Tom and Peta and a Black Collie Cross In addition she doggie sits daisy a sort of Staff,whilst her dad is at work. All four play together in doors or on the beach
