Our cat Velvet plays fetch with stuff--specifically lightweight ring-shaped
objects like hair elastics, or the plastic rings that come on gallon jugs of
milk in the US.  She likes to believe she is a Fierce Huntress pouncing on
stuff, and I guess she just figured out early on that the game lasted a lot
longer if she brought her toys back to be flung again and again.

Our two cats hate each other too.  It's sad and strange because when they
were little they would curl up together and groom each other and everything.
Cymby (our other cat) is terrified of children--something we didn't know
until we started having them--and I think she's just paranoid all the time.
I wish I could find a new home for her.  She needs a better environment, I
think.  It's not even that our kids torment her, but she was a stray and
probably picked up her aversion when she was very tiny.  Poor thing.
