Ruby likes to carry a couple of the stuffed toys - a catnip caterpillar worm thing, and a hedgehog, and then cry over them like they were her long lost kittens. First time I heard her do this, I thought she was in pain, or something, she sounded so forlorn and pitiful.
Ziggy and sunny like to carry a couple of the stuffed mice around and leave them, brave hunters that they are, where you will find them and step on them in the dark. I guess it is good we don't have mice, or we might find real ones left for us to find. The closest they get to actual hunting is bugs. Amazingly enough (least to me) is that they can catch them and kill them. Ziggy is very intent and serious hunter. Sunny is spastic. He's our special needs kitty. Ziggy will stay crouched ready to pounce for long periods, Sunny will crouch beside him, watching him, and imitating, for a couple minutes, then forget what he was doing there, and sometimes will try to get Ziggy to play with him, but Ziggy will be intent on the hunt, and then sunny will suddenly remember what he was supposed to be doing and then crouch down again, like oh yeah, I forgot... we're huntin'.... be vewwy vewwy quiet, we's huntin bugs...
The new toy of interest though is a mouse that sounds like a bean bag when you shake it. Couple weekends ago, I was trying to nap (I find I like napping on weekends - it allows me to catch up on sleep I miss all week). Ziggy however did not want me to nap. He wanted me to appreciate that he had this toy mouse. He was grabbing the mouse shaking it so that it rattled, then drop it, and meow loudly. over and over. he jumped up on the bed to present this mouse and repeat his routine. I was not impressed.
On Saturday night/Sunday morning, he played this game with M. She was definitely not impressed. She was working a mandatory OT shift at work on Sunday, daylight shift which meant getting up at 5am. She normally works 2nd shift, and is not an early morning person. If anyone asks if I wake up grouchy in the mornings, my reply is only if I have to.... I know better. Actually, I prefer staying up at night to getting up early, but I wake up fairly easily, and I am normally good natured when woke up. Not M. LOL. So Ziggy, doing his shake shake, drop the mouse, meow meow, routine at 3:30/4 in the morning early Sunday didn't go over well.
