Kitten Too Busy for This Whole 'Playtime' Thing
A Persian kitten named Harold remains cautious when it comes to playing, according to a number of eye-witnesses.
“He’s got a few pieces of string and this ball, but he just kinda stares at them,” says Jessica Flores, a source familiar with the situation. “He’s so busy at the office, I’m not sure he really sees a lot of value in playtime.”
Playtime can be valuable for young cats, according to kitten psychologist Geoffrey Eichner. “It hones their paw-eye coordination, and is generally very relaxing,” says Dr. Eichner, who published an August study on feline play in the journal Kittens Today. “It’s strange that Harold is disinterested in a lot of the fun activities of his peers. But, maybe his time is better spent making mad bank. It’s hard to argue with that kind of logic.”
