    Great video! My kitty loves to play fetch, but she doesn’t stop to play in the middle. I throw it across the room, she runs to find it and brings it right back to go again. She loved the game best when we had wood floors so she could slide to the toy.

    I had a cat who would would chase balls and bring them back to me, my new guy will go after the ball, but then he runs off with it.
