Bird Feather: The Best Natural Stimulating Toy for Cats
Bird feather makes a play much more exciting for a cat. Life is play, so Johnny says. Whenever he finds a chance, he plays. His curiosity keeps him lively. He goes anywhere where his interests pop up. He knows staying curious is the source of all the excitement. And that liveliness is contagious. After all, he is a CAT.
POINT BREEZE KINGDOM – AROUND NOON
Servant Y and H are talking in the living room over Johnny’s toy.
H’s showing broken toys to Y.
Look Y, this toy made of felt is almost broken…
How long did it last?
Hmm, about two weeks or so?
King’s job is not easy. There’s no wonder he bit this thing this hard. A huge stress.
I doubt he has such a “huge stress”.
Look, H. A man has his own thoughts and consideration, conflicts in his heart. I know it because I am the same way. Moreover, he is a king. Be kind and treat him really well.
H listens to Y with a bit of quizzical expression.
Really? Well, I’ll keep that in mind. Anyway. How many toys he got so far? He gets tired of them pretty quick.
H bowed her head down.
Don’t be so hard on our king. Men need something to pursue. Men love going after something exciting. There has to be something better for him. Something which can last longer and keep him stimulated.
Y puts his hand on H’s shoulder trying to encourage her.
Right. There is a better thing for him. I’ve already made a move about this problem. Since his nature is hunter’s, I’ve chosen these fluffy things…
H’s face took on a luster.
You sound as if you already got something for our king…
Y’s giving a suspicious eye on H.
Sure. I’m an excellent servant of his. Now, look at those beautiful…
H is taking out something from the black storage box on the floor…
Johnny ran down on stairs and stopped in front of his servants.
Hey, what you two talking over here for a while?
Your Majesty, I thought you were on your day watch.
Yes, I was on my duty. But it’s a good time to take a break since it’s lunch time, nobody bothers with our kingdom.
Is there any change, your majesty?
No, everything is fine. Anyway, What you have in your hands, H…? Oh my gosh! Aren’t they feathers?!
Johnny jumped at a bird feather in servant H’s hand. She made another scratch on her hands and arms…
Your majesty! Please hold on, let me…
Johnny doesn’t listen.
Let me take the turn.
Johnny started playing with feathers vigorously. And it lasted for a long while.
It may be a high time for you to take a break, your majesty. You’ve been on that feather more than twenty minutes now…
There is an amazing look on both Y and H’s faces.
No! No! I won’t ever stop!
Make it fluttering like a real bird! Yes! More!
The feather stimulates his instinct for hunting birds fairly well. He won’t let it go anytime soon… Look at him panting and huffing so bad. He won’t listen to us. Well, it’s his usual way anyway.
He doesn’t think about tomorrow, or even minutes later. He’s a living example of “live in a moment”. He will collapse on the floor any time now….
Huff and puff for another five minutes.
I TOLD YOU AND TOLD YOU.
