“He Loves Q-Tips”: Watch Adorable Illinois Cat Play Fetch Like a Dog
It's not every day you see a cat play fetch just like a dog, until you come to my apartment and play with my furbaby, Noodles, aka Noodz.
I adopted my 2-year-old tabby from PAWS Humane Society when he was just a few months old. Originally, I went looking for a cat that had tons of energy but also loved cuddling with me. That's when I found Noodles!
He was captured with his entire family underneath someone's deck. Noodles was the only one that didn't run away - I don't expect anything less from my baby!
Within the first 3 months after adopting him, Noodles started showing signs that he was more like a dog than a cat. You see, he discovered the joy of fetch.
That's right, my cat plays fetch like a dog. And it's absolutely hilarious because nobody believes me until they see it for themselves! He also loves bean bag chairs.
Fast forward to now, Noodles plays fetch with only Q-tips and bottle caps. I figured it'd be a fun way for him to get some exercise in, but quickly realized he will spend hours at a time fetching his Q-tips.
It's EXHAUSTING, not like he cares though. He's always staring at me like this... just waiting for me to throw a Q-tip. You can see it in his eyes.
I finally recorded myself playing fetch with Noodles and people were shocked by his dog-like instincts. I guess nobody else's cats play fetch quite like this?
Take a look at the video and tell me this isn't the cutest thing EVER!
I'm just glad to have a cat that's so playful and fun. Noodles does have a sister, Ramen. She's not as active... usually just annoyed by Noodles (lol).
Noodz has brought a lot of joy into my life since adopting him, though! I'm also thrilled to share the joy of my dog-like cat with the world!
