My tortie LUVS feather wands! She will chase it until she’s completely out of breath! Silly kitty. My himalayan loves scrunched up pieces of paper. He plays fetch like a dog! He will pick them up and trot through the house with them, meowing the whole time, sounding like he has a mouth full of marbles! Then he drops them at your feet and waits for you to throw them. He has a playful spurt of energy in the middle of the night and some mornings when I wake up there will be two or three balls of paper on the floor beside the bed, like he’s brought them in like”hey! wake up I wanna play!” XD

My cats love to fetch those plastic balls that have bells inside them. Just my luck that the toys that makes the most annoying sounds are most fun 😀
