I figured it went more like this: You: Ready? Cat: Looks up You: We're going to play catch. Now, when I throw this (you point at toy) you go get it and bring it back to me. Got it? Cat: Still looking up You: Ok, here we go....FETCH! (you throw the toy) Cat: Runs to the toy and grabs it in its mouth You: YES! Now, be a good cat and bring it back to daddy. Just pick it up in your mouth (You put one of the cat's other toys in your mouth) and bring it back to daddy. Cat: Now rolling around on the floor scratching the crap out of the toy You: Ok, yes, its a very fun toy. But you're supposed to bring it back here. (You pat the floor a few times.) Come on now. Cat: Drops toy, looks at you for a while, and walks off in the other direction You: HEY! Where you going?
