There are sometimes your cat or dog just wants to play. The way I can tell my cat wants to play is that he throws himself onto his back on the floor and kind of curls up a bit, tail wagging a bit. That’s my cue to grab something to toss to him. I love it that he does that, especially when he gets older. It means he’s still thinking like a kitten. Then there’s the cat that we see here in this video. He really wants to play.
