I'm a lazy player

The lady with the yellow hair says I’m a lazy player. I get bored with playing quickly. Today she’s trying to entice me into playing more with this fuzzy, feather wand toy.


Okay…I’ll play along….


Sheesh, lady! Shoving it in my face isn’t gonna get me to play with it. Besides, it’s tickling my nose.


This is better. C’mere, you fuzzy thing you.




Okay…I’m done now. I guess she’s right…I am a lazy player.

How ‘bout you? Do you have a toy that really gets you going? Or are you a lazy player like me?

  1. TGIF? More catnip maybe ; )

  2. Zoey, one has to keep one’s dignity at all times!

  3. We all have some lazy in us.

  4. Except for housemate Toby, all the kitties in our home are more or less like wild beasts when it comes to playing. There’s usually lots of whapping and flailing and somersaulting, and of course running really really really fast. It’s even better when you get another kitty to join you, because then the chase is on. Housemate Toby sometimes plays along with this, but when it comes to playing on his own, he’s a lazy player just like you, Zoey!

  5. Oh, darlin’, I am the LAZIEST player you will ever know. Except after dinner when I chase a braided raffia rope around the bed, under the covers, and so on until I get really crazy and hide behind the curtains until mama plays hid and seek and then I walk to the center of the room, bored stiff. So you see, we’re all like that.

  6. Tommy can be pretty lazy, but it really depends on the toy. mom got out a wand toy the other day for Saldano and Wheat and it didn’t get that must interest

  7. We can be lazy too but really we’re laying low to catch the toy off guard before we do a sneak attack and deaded it!

  8. I, Leia, luff to play! Mom says I’m still a kitten half the time. Toby though… he just likes to lay there and watch. Probably an Orange Thing, we think.

  9. William was a lazy player–he would just lie down on the floor whenever there was a wand toy about. And Caroline doesn’t want to play when the rest of us are around so she just sits!

  10. Mee can bee either Zoey!!! Deependss on mee mood!! 😉

  11. the only one of the boyz who loves to play with toyz is theo. Anything catnip stuffed will get him going and going and going…

  12. Haha, my boys do lazy play, too, but it really depends on the toy and their mood 🙂

  13. I get to mov’in pretty fast chasing that red dot and I will do anything to catch my peacock feather. TKS is just a crazy fast player. Why she even begs Mom and Dad to chase her up and down all our stairs!

  14. I’m definitely a lazy player…….or maybe just old……….or maybe BOTH!

    Hugs, Sammy

  15. We vacillate between lazy and crazy!! Depends on our mood…and the toy too, MOL! You are not a lazy player, you’re a dainty player!!

  16. Oh my Mom says ALL of the time that I am a “lazy” player! When we play with my wand toy…I have to lay down and inch my way over to it…I am SUPER LAZY! Love, Cody

  17. That looks like a fun toy – couldn’t it get you on your paws? MOL!

  18. I call that multitasking‼️‼️‼️‼️ Not lazy. Mol Mol
    Hugs Madi your bfffff

  19. You’re not lazy–just choosy! 🙂 Abbey and Connor run around and wrestle more than Natasha, but Natasha loves to play with toys. She will even play by herself sometimes.

  20. Raz will go for almost any toy!

  21. We all lose interest in anything really fast.

  22. We lose interest quickly, even with toys we love. Then Pierrot plays lying on his side and I just sit away and watch or ignore completely. We used to play for long stretches of time.

  23. Eric was always a lazy player, but I like to play fast and furious. Even now I don’t have much energy, on my good days I still play like that for a few minutes.

  24. zoey… problem liez in thiz ….therz BURD skin a tached ta a fish……thatz like tellin a cat ta eat brocolee flavored treetz……ya noe ~~~~~~~

    heerz two a bumblebee goby kinda week oh end guyz ~~~~~ ♥♥♥

  25. My cats play lazy unless I get out da bird 🙂

  26. I’ve known a lazy player or two in my life with cats but Mudpie is not one of them! She totally throws herself into play sessions 🙂

  27. I’m older now so I have become a lazy player but I do play every day. One thing I love is Da Bird AFTER the feathers fell off. I LOVE just the string hanging down. I play longer and better with that that I EVER did with the feathers. I am not a feather kitty.

  28. That cracks me up. I think Fergus the wild-man kitten is going to be like that when he gets a little older. Even now, he only plays with toys for about 3 minutes before he tries to entice Lucy and Sinead to play, so he can just lie down and watch them.

  29. High paw! Ashton plays just like that, too. Exercise is strictly the thing you get walking to the food bowl.

  30. You are so darn adorable sweet Zoey!

  31. When I was a youngster I could play for hours. Now – 5 minutes is too long!! I’m right there with you, Zoey!

  32. Scylla & Yin are lazy, everybody else is VERY energetic.

  33. I say let the toys come to you, your rest is important. MOL!

  34. We have been spoiled by having kibbles to chase cross the floor. Feathers are only of passing interest unless there is food attached. MOL!

  35. Chris has become a lazy eater. I usually have to bring him his bowl and he ea little bit without getting up and then lets Flokie or Puck or Frankie steal the rest.

  36. Zoey, I’m glad to know I’m not the only lazy player out there!


  37. Aaaaaaaaaw You look so purretty Zoey. As fur me, it kinda depends on da mood me’s in and which toy mommy brings out. Sometimes me doesn’t even lift a paw and sometimes me goes wild. Now Raena…dat girl only has one speed and it’s full out all da time.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Raena

  38. Zoey, Amber is just the same – she’s lucky to get to two minutes before she’s done!

    We’re loving all your gorgeous photo’s today, mew look purrfect 😀

  40. Lazy is my middle name!

  41. Cute photos, Zoey. Our belief s to put as little effort as possible into whatever we are doing. We like your method! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  42. Zoey, that look in your green eyes is VERRRRY Predatory!!!!!

  43. Kozmo thinks yous has the most gorgeous eyes!!! And wes all is players (well mes don’t palys anymore but mes used to be) Thanks for coming to the debate guys! And yous knows who won!!! The Rump and The Hill did not get even ONE vote (Kong did though!)

  44. My pet is excited about napkins. I fashioned a toy out of that for her.

  45. Oooh we have those kind of players in OUR house too!!

  46. Andy plays in that exact same way! Purrs, Seville.

  47. My cat loves to play in the same manner. I used to do that often last time when I first got her as a pet.
