I come downstairs, from getting ready for work, Erich is still packing my lunch so I take the fish on an elastic string (cost $3 at Walmart) and I drag it along the floor and make it “disappear”. Boots then pounces on it and when she lets go I flip it into the air and she jumps and well, you get the picture.
Quite recently she has started to roll onto her back and play with it that way. I don’t understand why she holds it in her front paws and then uses her back paws to poke and scrape/claw/punch it. It must be an instinctual thing so she could “kill” or rip open her pray that she caught. Have you ever seen this???
