How to Get Your Cat to Play Fetch With You

good boy!

We are going to attempt something that will take a little time to accomplish but it can be done. Not only will your cat become smarter he or she will have fun at the same time. It will take a bit of patience on your part but it is truly amazing to see your cat play fetch. My cat “Buddy” is an amazing animal. this is only one of the few tricks i have taught him since he was a kitten. He is now 8 months old and has much more to learn. I have also taught him to jump up into my arms with just a snap of my finger. Who knows maybe someday i will teach him to grab the mail or the newspaper for me. LOL! His favorite toy ,believe it or not is a crumbled up piece of paper. Follow my very easy steps and someday your cat will be playing fetch with you. Buddy and i play 10-15 minutes a day and he loves it. He will bring his toy right back and drop it at my feet until i pick it up and throw it again. This is a great way to bring you and your cat closer.


your cat

his toy


  1. Step 1

    First thing you want to do is let your cat familiarize them self with the training toy. For example ours was a crumpled piece of paper.

  2. Step 2

    Next thing he did was to play with the paper for a while. They will play with it for days and days. You cannot rush them, this is just a toy to them so they will go back and forth with it until he has an infatuation for it.

  3. Step 3

    Now this is where we come in. You start taking the paper from him while he is playing with it and you throw it. He will start chasing it and playing with it. Eventually he will realize that if you throw it for him he will have something to chase.

  4. Step 4

    Step “3 will take a little while. Then out of nowhere they will bring it back to you, and you pick it up and throw it again and next thing you know they are bringing back to you to throw again. Buddy now brings it back to me sets it at my feet and lays down until i pick it up and throw it again.
