Dougy’s upset with me. He thinks I need to spend much more time playing with him – but I fail.
Okey doke, mon chat! Here’s votre jouet préféré Neko [your favorite Neko toy]!
Dougy punishes me by refusing to play. So I tease him this way!
Warming up to the idea of play!
In short order, Dougy plays, if not in this GIF.
Ultimately, Dougy thinks keeping the toy away from me is a pretty good idea, too, because I scritch his ear to try to encourage him to let it go. (The best of all worlds, from Dougy’s perspective!) Quality time goal achieved!
