What started as a fun discovery for my cat, James, has turned into a maniacal routine. See the photos.

Most of my cats love to play fetch but they prefer the chase game and hide+seek! They wipe me out usually! Thanks Cher

LOL, Cher!! Myk'ael loves playing fetch...over and over and over...... When (if) HE ever gets tired he takes his treasure to one of his hidey-holes for safekeeping...til tomorrow's session...

My 2 year old will play fetch, until he gets bored, and decides to fight with a toy.

My Princess Ezzie Wezzie loved chasing almuminum balls I made from their Pounce treats cans. I couldn'y figure out why she wasn't interested in the treats until one day when I was handing out treats she had her eyes glued on the aluminum foil...that didn't last long so I got her a small green ball and she and I would play other cats watched us but never participated. Tahnx for another stroll down Memory Lane Cher.

Had a cat named Cami, years back, that would always play fetch, with small wad of foil.!!! Great hunter also.!!! One of the smartest and most grateful cat, I rescued her from being abandoned at a gas station.!!

When I smoked my cats would come running whenever I scrunched one up. Their favorite toys were these empty cig packages...yes, I know smoking was bad for all of us...loosen up - I've quit.
At odd times in the wee hrs you could hear them playing ball with these wrappers. Anyway, when we moved we found 18 wrappers in various stages of use - some were no longer making that wonderful scrunchy noise. Noted with thanks.

I had one cat when I was young who would love when I threw a jack ball down the hallway (it was a really long hall). Sheba would bring the ball back for me to throw it again. I have not had another cat that was a retriever.

My cat thinks I am nuts if I throw a toy for her to fetch. Likely she is right. Noted TY Cher

YES!! My white girl does and she's our soccer star too! :) She loves this old fake flower and bats it back and forth to us. I just have to say "Lacie, where's your flower?" and she comes running!! Another one of my girls just loves aluminum balls and carries them around with her when she's done playing fetch. You can buy all the expensive cat toys out there but really, aluminum balls do the trick!! :)

When growing up we had a Abyssinian cat who would fetch fresh string beans and after about 5 or 6 tosses, he would sit down and eat it.

Cute photo's. I guess my cats love it but we don't play the typical fetch. I throw the ball, my cats look at me like - why did you do that? - I go and fetch the ball and bring it back. Then we do the whole thing over again. After I fetch the ball 3 or 4 times, I quit.
