My two 13 week old kittens have several wand toys that I have lovingly picked out for them over the course of the month I’ve had them. The wand toys are their favorite. However, as much as they like the toys dangling off the end....Bowie and Nox are OBSESSED with playing with the stick end. I’ll hold the end of the stick that has the string coming from it and trail the other end of the stick all over the place. They go nuts. WHY????? Obviously I don’t mind at all, but it’s just so strange! I know cats are creative and make their own toys a lot of the time, but why this? Any theories? They are both black cats and all their wand toys have dark sticks, maybe they’re treating them like brother’s tail?
