Kako and Loki both enjoy playing fetch. That is to say, they both love for me to throw a ball which they then chase, play with, retrieve, and ultimately return to me so that I might throw it again. I don’t find this unusual for cats as Henry always did the same thing, and in his case it was most evident with balls made from aluminum foil.
The photos below are of Kako returning the ball to me after I already threw it. She especially loves this game, so much so that it is not unusual for me to wake up in the morning with anywhere from a few to more than half-a-dozen balls resting in bed with me, evidence that she kept bringing them to me during the night, taking my lack of action as disinterest in the ball(s) she already brought to me, and forcing her to keep bringing those of different colors in the hopes of finding one with which I might want to play. She’s funny that way.

And yes, she always carries the balls on one side or the other, almost always on her right but nonetheless also carried on her left from time to time.
