Apart from eating, sleeping and rumblin' with the Tigers, this is my favourite thing to do.
It's called stringplay.
I don't think that this still image (left) does stringplay justice... though even I have to admit that I look pretty damn fine mid-pounce. Stringplay's just so dynamic and fast-paced. How it works is I get one of the housepeople to sort of fling the string around and I chase it. It's great indoor training for hunting and rumbling. I can do awesome pounces, leaps and turns when I get going. I've experimented with various media in the string genre over the years: twine, ribbon, wool... but for weight, flight, claw-ability and chew-ability, you can't go past shoelaces. Long ones.
So that's stringplay. It keeps me sharp and looking fine. And it's wicked fun. Stringplay: try it sometime!
